Lol "most" people here are biased because hell this is roosterteeth's wikia. There is some sense in that one guy who said that "they're not the kind of people I'd want to go hang out with in person, based on how they present themselves in the podcasts". As much as you can hate on pewdiepie, that guy is an introvert, and most people who ends up watching pewdiepie videos can relate to his personality ( not just his screaming and such that people hate about him). The people of rooster teeth seems to present themselves as aholes of the gamer community, basically saying they are the jock of the typical high school, only in terms of youtube and gaming. They can be very intimidating to viewers, mostly young because they aren't friendly (as to what they show in their videos). Although, to one's opinion, wether if you think pewdiepie sucks or not, he is more approachable in terms of interacting with the fan, (yes, sometimes forcing it out), than the staff of rooster teeth. In my own opinion, i would rather have a meet and greet with someone who says, "don't be afraid to say hi to me if you guys pass by me bros" than meet someone who would automatically say to your face "f@#$ You" in  a joking way. 

This comment doesn't seem fair..

Rooster Teeth have not only been well known for their fan interactions at conventions, but they have their own convention to meet their fans and have always been recorded by fans as been respectful, positive and pleasant people.

The character you play in a video is not who you are.. Although they are not been given different names or acting per se, there is no way that if you walk up to Geoff etc in the street and ask for a autograph or highfive that he will say "F**k you" and walk away.

Don't take this as me been completly negative to your comment because i'm a Rooster Teeth fan, I can imagine PewDiePie been a pleasant human, an introvert, no. Lonely, shy and reticent are not the words I would use to describe him. The whole "Jocks of the gaming community" is not neccessarily true either. In some videos some Achievement Hunters do make inflammatory comments but only for humour basis, I can see these been misinterpreted as been solely negative and do accept people can take these to heart.

All in all, both PewDiePie and RT maybe/are great with their fans, it's from there though.. it's the fans that cause the problems.
