He was getting hate before Fez even released just for taking a long time to develop the game. Fez did receive praise, but Fish most certainly did not. Whenever I hear anyone talk about him, it's in a negative light.
Yeah, he is a dick.. but I don't think it's because he made a critically praised game and he thinks he's amazing. It seems he's always been like this. A lot of his outbursts were after Fez released, but that's more than likely because he's extremely frustrated with the industry which you can clearly see since he's quitting game development altogether. I really don't think any of us have any room to judge him for being a dick since we're all guilty of being dicks at least at some point of our lives. Some of the people judging him are even much worse than him.

Again, it's not just the criticism that pushed him to quit game development.
