Okay, I'll play along...

Ivan, are you jealous that you can't wear pants like the rest of us? Or do you feel free just being a naked ball of light and wings? Also: What do you think it would take for a good Silent Hill game to be made after years of mostly drivel?

Dear Ivan,

As a differently abled person yourself (ie. no hands) do you think the gaming industry should be doing more to reach out to the handicapped and disabled communities?

Stan said...

Hey Ivan, it seems as though you've been an intern for quite some time now. How many cups of coffee have you bought and when do you think you'll get an actual job with the Over Thinker?

Also, what influence do you think tech fetishization has on children (and fairies).

Ivan,
Working as an intern for the GO must be a daunting task. What decisions lead you to become his intern? Also any chance you'll get in on the action in the coming battles against the unknown evil?

Hey Ivan, back in episode 22 which was part 2 of MovieBob's thoughts on the Sonic franchise, did you think his suggestion of killing off the majority of the cast in the games was a bit too dark? Sonic is a kids game and last time we went dark, we got Shadow the Hedgehog the video game. Wouldn't it be better to maybe use the Robotizer on them? Or at least not have them appear in the game period or be offered as a second-skin to be selected at a character-select screen if fans do want to see them?

P.S. Yes I know using the Robotizer from the SatAM cartoon would be somewhat dark too, but not as dark as killing them off. That and given fans went nuts with Sonic eating chili dogs in the Black Knight, I'm sure they'd go nuts seeing the Robotizer brought into the games.

James said...

Ivan, are there any "cult classics" like Myst or Katamari Damacy that you consider overrated?

Daniel R said...

Ivan,

Is there anything you adamantly disagree with the Overthinker on?

What's the best part of having the Overthinker as your boss? Worst?

In much the same way the Overthinker had the Antithinker, do you have your own Anti-version living in the Antiverse as well?

You've mentioned Navi's way hot before, what'd you think of Tatl or her brother Tael?

How do you feel about becoming a role-model for other fairy-americans?

What's your excercise routine, I've been trying to get in shape and I'm surprised how you keep such a slender 'floaty' figure. What's your secret?

Hey Ivan-

I've noticed there is a lack of survival horror discussion by the game overthinker. How is it a guy who takes on so much to save the world is not playing any of that genre's games? Do you have to sleep in his bedroom so he has a pseudo nightlight? :)

Also, does OT have proper Fairy facilities in the office for you or are you being neglected and so forced to use inadequate facilities when you need to? Should we start a campaign for fairy rights to make sure you are getting your deserved accommodations as an american employee?

Ivan

You are portrayed often as the Devil's Advocate/ Second Opinion to the Game Overthinker, yet it's extremely hypocritical and moot when you are just played by Bob who is "pretending" to have a second opinion and then put a squeaky voice filter over it. Wouldn't you be more effective if you were actually played by a second opinion, E.I. a different person from Bob entirely?

I always imagined that Ivan was a physical being... just that he's really really tiny and all you can see is his aura.... kind of like The Who's down in Who-Ville.... of some iterations of Tinkerbelle.

Dear Ivan,

I have two questions, but both stem from the same idea.

Understandably, there are ancient franchises (Mario, Sonic) that are still going strong. But for every one of these, we have a Monkey Island or Crash Bandicoot that has fallen by the wayside.

My first question is: Do you think these fallen franchises deserve a second chance, or should they be left as headstones in the great Video Game Graveyard?

My second question is: Why is it, do you think, that people in general seem to want certain franchises (Mario, as an extreme example) to thrive in some sort of ageless tenure, while they believe that other franchises (Halo, as another extreme) should die off and join the realms of Alex Kidd and Vectorman. What, in your opinion, makes certain games "worthy" in the public eye, while others are considered to be a poison or a blight on society?

Does Navi have... Issues?

KevinCV said...

Okay, I'll bite.

Ivan, how did Bob find you, and how did he convince you to be his intern?

Also, what are your thoughts on how the Zelda franchise can keep moving forward in the future after "Skyward Sword"?

David said...

Dear Ivan,

I have a few different questions. Hopefully you can answer one, or possibly all.
You've mentioned before how the fairy community views Navi in a positive light and Tinkerbell in a more negative light. What are your thoughts on other famous fairies, like the Fairly Oddparents or the Tooth Fairy?
How do you feel about Link capturing fairies to heal himself? Is it cruel or are fairies generally happy to help people?
Does human women dressing up as "naughty fairies" or "sexy fairies" offend you? Is it seen as a compliment or something closer to blackface?

James (not the annoying one) said...

Dear Ivan,
Since I know your boss is really into Nintendo stuff, you probably play a few of the games he buys, right? What's your opinion on Xenoblade?

Mboy said...

What hated moments in games do you think do not really deserve the hate?

Also are you okay with humans dating other fairies?

Nicholas Sahlas said...

Dear Ivan,

what are your thoughts on Wreck-it Ralph?

Dear Ivan

If you could have dinner with any famous historical figure who would it be & Why?

Also which famous Historical figure is most deserving of his/her own game?

Bedinsis said...

Dear Ivan,

has there ever been a time when you've vehemently disagreed with the Game Overthinker on a matter? If so, what matter was it and what did you disagree with?

Question for Ivan:

Who is best pony?

Gallade11 said...

Dear Ivan,

Do you know anything about the mysterious disappearance of Bobo the Overcaffeinated Chipmunk?

Hey Ivan do you believe that the zelda franchise is becoming stagnate, in particular I'll refer you to the article by Tevis Thompson where he compares the modern Zs and even lttp to what he feels their superior nes counterparts.

He makes an interesting comparison with darksouls
