He gained a bit of flak from the gamer community when [[http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2010/04/video_games_can_never_be_art.html he declared video games not to be an art form,]] but [[http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2010/07/okay_kids_play_on_my_lawn.html he eventually came around]] and at least decided he's not in a position to judge them (although, despite popular opinion to the contrary, he has been known to play them). Despite that episode, he was considered as the most OneOfUs of major critics, as he admired [[{{Anime}} Japanese animated film]] and had an incredible knowledge of science fiction, which was among his favorite genres. While he claimed ignorance to a lot of TV shows due to his heavy schedule of writing and watching films, he found time to become a fan of the WWE (having found a fascination with wrestling after viewing ''BeyondTheMat''), ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark,'' and ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender.'' (During their 1979 review of ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture,'' Gene suggested that he might not have cared about the characters since he wasn't a fan of the show. Roger said that he WAS a fan and he didn't care about them as presented in this film). Heck, he even gave WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic his due after seeing his tribute video to Siskel and him via a Twitter message (Nostalgia Critic creator Creator/DougWalker was so thrilled, he printed and framed it). Ebert also had a fondness of other film analysis and criticism, such as Tim Dirk's Filmsite.org (which Ebert frequently quoted) and WebVideo/RedLetterMedia; of the ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' review, Ebert stated: "I was pretty much sure I didn't have it with me to endure another review of [''Revenge of the Sith.''] Mr. Plinkett demonstrates to me that I was mistaken." This is especially interesting considering that said review criticized critics, specifically naming Ebert, who gave a free pass to Creator/GeorgeLucas based on prior successes and not his recent output of work.

-->"I am informed that 5,000 cockroaches were used in the filming of ''Film/JoesApartment.'' That depresses me, but not as much as the news that none of them were harmed during the production."

** The best known example of Ebert's law that actually involves Ebert himself comes from a [[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050811/REVIEWS/50725001/1023 review]] of ''Film/DeuceBigalow: European Gigolo''. Star Rob Schneider took offense to an article by Patrick Goldstein of the ''UsefulNotes/LosAngeles Times'', pointing out that several major studios turned down the chance to finance the year's Best Picture nominees while financing a sequel to a crude sex comedy. After reading it, he took out a full-page ad in the ''Hollywood Reporter'' and called Goldstein a "hack" because he had never won a Pulitzer Prize. In Ebert's review of the film, he taunted Schneider and said that he himself actually ''did'' win the Pulitzer, and thus by Schnider's criteria he was fully qualified to tell Schneider that "your movie sucks". The story took an [[HeartwarmingMoments unexpected]] turn after several back-and-forth barbs in the press. After one of Ebert's cancer surgeries, Schneider sent Ebert flowers and a "get well" card signed "Your Least Favorite Movie Star, Rob Schneider". Ebert conceded that while Schneider may make bad movies, he's a good man. Aww.
