It's funny that people forget all about the back lash that Jack Thompson got for his critique of game criticism. I guess because he has a penis it's okay to send death and rape threats to him.

Well I hope that for everyone's sake, what you're saying doesn't happen. Thanks for the explanation

No problem. I know a lot of people see pro-GG posts and just roll their eyes about it. I guess a movement seems sillier when it's over the internet. I've never personally posted anything significant but I like to show my support when I can. If nothing else I know I can't stand the thought of people who directly make money off my hobby calling me and my friends losers and neckbeards just for enjoying said hobby. Personally I could give two shits less if a person I'm playing with happens to be a woman. I used to play WoW all the time and several of the best raiders I had the pleasure of playing with were women. All I care about is your personality. A shitty person is a shitty person regardless of gender.

I agree with everything stated above, I just hate the idea of Sarkeesian being painted as some mastermind hiding behind the scenes and playing puppet master. She's just an attention whore who's using trending topics on Jezebel to get more page views.

I think Gamergate has points and deserves attention. I just wish the spark that set this off was something a little easier to defend like EA's habit of faking reviews or their habit of selling broken games instead of a post by someone's ex boyfriend.
#93 - jackflak (10/31/2014) [-]
Agreed. I don't think she's some brutal dictator like some seem to believe. I DO think she's one of the best con-artists we've seen in years though. She plays to her audience well.

And it IS strange seeing the negative gamer attention moving away from EA. But such is life.

Fair enough, I see your point, but I think sometimes people don't give enough credit to developers. I really don't think they'd give two shits about what the feminists have to say. Just look at Rockstar for example, they've been going against soccer mums and feminists ever since they started, yet they've changed nothing about their games, no matter how big the uproar was. My prediction is that in the future, if developers are being influenced by feminists AND it shows in their games, people just won't buy the games. Those developers will be done, and new developers will take their place. There will always be people like there are at Rockstar, who just want to make good games despite the glares of feminazis.
#100 - jackflak (10/31/2014) [-]
Yeah, I agree that it won't affect the huge names like Rockstar most likely. However, the problem that I believe exists is that this incident might make it impossible, or at least very intimidating, for a new dev to try to get started in the field. Ironically this means that the extremist feminists are trying to do to men exactly what they believe is happening in the industry to women. And I find that to be a shame :.

Except she had no actual power behind anything before people started sending death threats and rape threats way back when she was campaigning. I know it's typical stuff on the internet, but most moms sitting around watching Fox News don't.

She's not a lawyer. She's not a developer. The only power she gets is because of her martyrdom and Gamergate has been fueling that like gasoline on a fire.
#90 - jackflak (10/31/2014) [-]
While I agree with you fully on most of your post, It was bound to happen exactly this way whether Gamergate was created or not. Like you said, death and rape threats are every-day things on the internet. These had nothing to do with Gamergate originally, same thing with the ones Zoe Quinn recieved. If every single anonymous face behind the collective computer screen that is the internet knew better and ignored these women instead of our crazy few brothers attacking wildly we probably wouldn't be here.

But because, as you acknowledged, it's just how things are around here, there was no stopping it. It's exactly the same on their side,however, as several prominent figures closer to our side have received threats of all colors from the anti-ggs. Gamergate really IS a movement for ethical journalism, whether they want to admit it or not. We just have a vast quantity of nameless, faceless people (and the occasional troll) that choose to attack things more zealously. Once again, it's the same way on their side. As much distaste as I have for Sarkeesian, I'm sure she doesn't condone death threats toward our side. Or maybe she does, who knows.

Either way, both sides have its crazies now but the whole mess started with your average internet crazies blowing things out of the water, we're just responding to their enormous overreaction.

#52 - jackflak (09/13/2014) [-]
You really haven't read anything I've said have you? It's not people like ME giving them attention. I've never followed ANY gaming info website. But waaaaaaaay too many people base their purchasing choices on their reviews/ratings to say "just ignore them". Average Joe that doesn't follow all the outlying info on these scandals might hop onto the website one day, see that half the active gaming journalists (maybe more) are saying "don't buy games from (your favorite game dev here), their games are SEXIST". And like the single brain-celled organism he is he says "OH, better not buy their games any more!". Now imagine Average Joe is several hundred thousand people. Big gaming companies can barely take a hit like that, small companies are destroyed by it.
