I'll start the thread off and see where this goes
What is your opinion on gamergate whether it is for ethics and transparency that is misunderstood really an issue of corrupt journalism, or a feminist issue that has split the cauldron of gaming in a sense all over the place. (Or perhaps something else like purposeful misdirection)



Few articles to start it off
Summary Of The Gamergate Movement

Gamergate Timeline
http://deadspin.com/the-future-of-the-culture-wars-is-here-and-its-gamerga-1646145844

Anita Sarkeesian releases a video about the sexualization and use of women as props in games; she becomes involved as a matter of course; Sarkeesian is harassed and threatened to the point of filing a police report with the San Francisco Police Department and leaving her home due to the severity of the threats; Quinn produces logs of chatrooms and posts from Reddit and 4chan that show gamers planning to carry out hacks on her personal accounts and create fake accounts to "speak out" against harassment; the gaming industry circulates a petition speaking out against the harassment of Quinn and Sarkeesian that's eventually signed by thousands of industry members;

The Fine Young Capitalists, a fifth-column feminist group dedicated to "promoting women in gaming" with whom Quinn had previously feuded, re-engage her; groups from around the internet raise more than $70,000 for TFYC in a crowdfunding project; Adam Baldwin (yes, that Adam Baldwin) coins the term #Gamergate on Twitter; an ancillary hashtag, #notyourshield, is hatched by minorities, women, and LGBTQ gamers who agree with Gamergate and disagree with writers who they feel are misrepresenting them; Gamergate tweaks its outward image, deciding that it is now on a mission to expose broader corruption in video game journalism; and writers who have openly supported Quinn and Sarkeesian are harassed online, via email, and through repeated hack attempts, with Vox Media singled out in particular.

Eventually, several articles on the same basic topic were published. The general premise was that it is pointless to talk about "gamers" as a whole—the constituency is too vast—and further, that the core identity of a "gamer" had become dominated by the loudest and most unacceptable sort. The most openly prosecutorial was a Gamasutra op-ed by editor-at-large Leigh Alexander titled "'Gamers' don't have to be your audience. 'Gamers' are over." It argued that the only way to begin anew the project of defining the culture of gaming is to tear the whole thing down and build from scratch. It contained this passage:

'Games culture' is a petri dish of people who know so little about how human social interaction and professional life works that they can concoct online 'wars' about social justice or 'game journalism ethics,' straight-faced, and cause genuine human consequences. Because of video games.

This is when everything fell all the way down the shitter.

I think it's a total clusterfuck of all three, I think the culprits largely responsible for this are the matriarchs ( more and more I refuse to call these women feminists because they are an insult to real feminism ) and we've always known that gaming journalism are corrupt and games developers are about as out of touch as westminister politicians. What these people have done is backlash against a few gamers who are more than sick of their bullshit and the gamers involved in this whole thing have allowed themselves to be completely baited and look like morons to any outsider.

By the way, I'm actually glad you made a thread like this OP because then people won't have an excuse to spam this bullshit all over the forums in an attempt to make themselves look even more stupid than they already are. I hate a lot of gaming journalists, never pay a single bit of attention to them and this kind of crap is exactly why, you can see the true contempt that they and major games developers have for particularly the PC gaming community.

The use of sex in any form of media has always been around and lets face it and it's not going to change and frankly I find the way women act as if they don't do the same to the sexes they're attracted to is patronising.

In agreeement some of the reviews are just crap if its not a Halo or a Call of Duty but something like Lolipop Chainsaw then according to the game reviewers its sexist, without even bothering with the game mechanics or gameplay.

In other words I don't give a damn what your personal opinion is or some moral spiel about it just tell me if the game works has more less no super crappy bugs and is fun to play.
Yet apparently that's a hard thing to do lol...

As an aside to the feminists
(I sort of want the net result out of this being 4chan or similar groups making their own rating system to troll the F out of everyone else and then having random reviewers go there to make opinions)
After all making games for well making games is what its about (aka enjoying it and trying new things and then telling others about it bias aside)
Katawa Shoujo whistle.

Something like Users for Users
Don't need some game reviewer who's considered pro telling me whats good and whats not.

I notice as well about how games like Call of Duty in the first place are basically racist military propaganda but of course you won't here that kind of comment from most reviewers because they've been promoting the shit out of it for years and said developers pay them lots and lots of money Tongue

See? That's how you beat morons accusing you of sexism lol shame the gamers didn't do any of that.

I think it's mainly about ethics are corruption. Also they dislike direct attacks to their group.

Then there is tiny minority of trolls who like to stir up things. And small handful of true misogynist who have gotten the misandrist to hate them and thus the crappy MSM pulled in with lies.

The bottom line for me is don't be shitty to other people. You don't agree with what someone is saying or their point of view? That's fine, but that's not an excuse to call them a 'dumb c*nt.' I generally stay off twitter because no meaningful dialogue can be condensed to 140 character responses, but in the few tweets I've seen on the matter, the phrase 'dumb c*nt' showed up a distressing number of times.

It's been a month since the last check on gamergate so thought it was worth a revive.
Looks like some strategies include telling their moms on them now

EDITOR’S NOTE: Pearce previously said that Gamergate activists were behind her harassment, but then told the Guardian that she changed her mind about that. We have changed the headline to reflect her change of heart.

Should've thought about the before encouraging several gaming news journalists to write that shit all over their websites, fucking morons, of course it never occured to these people that the ones making these death and rape threats where just little assholes from a very small group because they don't understand the internet.

They may have changed the Headline Lethn but they can't change that top level url
But true enough the word Victim got replaced with reviewer, got caught with the crap and got called out on it too ^^

women who play games are whores, who cares if they get offended

Be radical, have principles, be absolute, be that which the bourgeoisie calls an extremist: give yourself without counting or calculating, don't accept what they call ‘the reality of life' and act in such a way that you won't be accepted by that kind of ‘life', never abandon the principle of struggle.

Gawker's Denton to step down as president




From the comment section:

...
Unpaid interns and GamerGate rabble aren't a factor? "In 2015, Gawker will be the very best version of itself; I will be the best version of myself. We will be bloggers again,” Denton said. Lol, Nick you devious swine.

...
haha, what a whitewash! no mention of the HUGE advertisers they lost over their GamerGate BS. the real story is that people finally organized and fought back against the Outrage Industry, the White Knights of Twitter and the Social Justice Warrior frauds that endlessly harass anyone who disagrees with them. Denton's scalp is theirs and they should be congratulated for giving him some just desserts.


...
Nick's utterly incompetent handling of gamergate didn't just lose Gawker advertisers, it rose awareness of adblock software and made it a basic requirement for internet browsing. How much total ad revenue did this genius just evaporate?


...
"The move, Denton said, was part of an effort to scale back his day-to-day managerial roles and return to blogging, which he called "the only truly new media in the age of the web" and "the essential act of journalism in an interactive and conversational age.""

So journalism has now been reduced to clickbait articles written by a team of vultureous SJW white guilt hipsters inside a Starbucks in Portland, Oregon.

Good to know.


...
Super hilarious that this article doesn't mention #GamerGate at all. Gawker's Max Read admitted that the campaign against them could cost them MILLIONS.

Why, curious readers who've never heard of this? Sam Biddle, Gawker reporter, called for the bullying of "nerds" over GG, GOT PROMOTED, and then bragged about how we was being promoted for "making nerds cry."

DURING NATIONAL BULLYING AWARENESS MONTH. No joke.
