girl on my fb is defending gamers gate because she was made fun in school for liking final fantasy and wearing nerd shirts

i'm not advocating a pull up yer bootstraps nerds thing because i was made fun of liking anime and this doesn't affect my adult life at all. When you're a teenager, you tend to have identities. An anime fan/gamer was my identity and I'll say that my friends and I went too hard in the paint. And that's why we were laughed at. Not because we liked anime but because we made an identity out of it. I've had some growing paints and I"m not advocating bullying, but shouldn't adulthood help iron some of the issues out?

I dunno. Am I being hypocritical here? I'm not advocating bullying.

Gaming can be a culture without being the basis of one's entire identity. It's not a binary thing. Really depends on how your friend is viewing it.

The issue here was kotaku and that ilk calling all gamers fat losers who are misogynists and racist in response to some people pointing out questionable relationships with some devs. It was a generalized attack on a group of people's characters, the group defined by one thing. It was basic bigotry (of which there is some in the thread here) that got a louder response than the people doing it expected.

Example: Brony's weird me out. I don't think a toy and cartoon should be the heart of your identity. Saying that, I don't really know if that criticism applies to everyone who watches the show. I wouldn't say a Brony is a loser just because of some awkward photos that I've seen. I could joke about Brony's being horse fuckers, but if I actually start to believe that deep down then it' generalizes, dismisses and robs people of their individual humanity. That's the by-the-numbers way of being a bigot. 

And when you do that in response to accusations of ethical impropriety then you just look stupid and guilty.

Well, that's my point, Etiolate. I watch MLP and I don't identify as a...whatever. It's just a cute cartoon for me to watch. I'm sure the same is true for many gamers, but it seems that they [gamersgate apologists] value their gamer identity an incredible amount when they're just glorified toys.

I think they are being very defensive because of the attacks directed towards games and gamers. However invested they were into the hobby, it's heightened when someone is painting you as an evil person.

Of course they're being defensive because games and gamers are being attacked. I've already said this. And their reasoning is often because they were made fun of when they were kids. Its nonsensical and petty. Oh no, will someone defend the games?! I don't get it.

I'm not emotionally charged about it. It's more interesting to me? Disturbing in parts and relative to other political trends. But I guess I can't diss someone for being emotionally charged about it. It depends on the type of person you are. When someone attacks something I like or am associated with in a dumb way then I just dismiss it. Others take it personally. Hell, the 'feminist' sides is all about taking everything personally. I'd rather people do less of it, but it's not like the entire #GG thing operates super-emotionally. There's a lot of that on both sides though.

What else can we do better, with tactics?
If you see a Twitlonger post addressing a corporate entity / PR firm / advertising firm, BOOST IT. It costs us NOTHING. Do not respond to any troll posts / bait tagged on the twitlonger.

This makes us DOMINATE TWITTER for as long as we want. Our enemies will now have to fight MULTIPLE fronts, while we put exponential pressure both on emails and on twitter itself.

This EXHAUSTS the trolls, the shills, Literally Red, Literally Blue, and Literally Who.

Today we start invading Castle Vox
Vox has already set the precedent, thanks to Leigh Alexander. By taking over Castle Vox, we knock out Polygon and The Verge at the same time.

STAY TUNED FOR TARGETS, BE HERE 6PM EST USA, we lay SIEGE to Castle Vox.

Why should we take Castle Vox?
Right now, Vox Media has been implicated with numerous skirmishes with GamerGate, all of these should be brought to light to every PR Agency and every advertiser we can find that deals with Gamers.

CONCLUSION
Designing protagonist characters for computer games is a difficult task, but necessary.
Although it is true that the player controls the character in the final game, game
designers have no reason to give up on the construction of character. Even if the player
is the one who holds the joystick, the game designer still controls the character.
A perceived character will direct a player’s decisions to act. Character interpretation can
be involuntary, even subconscious, but still affect a player’s attitude towards a game.
Therefore, if a game has a protagonist character, designing with its needs in mind
should be a fruitful approach. In this paper, we have pointed out explicit ways of
affecting the perception of characters. The design section exemplifies how character
aspects can be translated into game mechanics.
The needs of the protagonist define the needs of the player and will guide them
towards the goals of the game. We propose the use of a three-dimensional approach of
aspects to build rich and well-founded protagonist characters. By then fine-tuning the
game mechanics accordingly, the game will reflect and support the solid nature of the
character.
Making actions and goals natural for the character doesn’t mean that the solutions will
be trivial or easy to achieve. On the contrary, natural-seeming goals provide a good
background upon which to build intricate and demanding conflicts – the basis for an
enjoyable game.

1. That was apparently made by a 3rd crazy identity (which is why it's ROGUEstar)
2. That file might feature kill la kill music and a childish overpompous tone but at the end it's just telling people to boycott and i don't see anything bad in that, unless i missed something (it was a tl;dr file) in which case in which case feel free to point it out
3. And this is the big one, i think the the other side is the bigger evil of the 2 and you guys are just having fun behind the neckbeards backs without looking at the whole picture, the fact that nobody seemed to mention point 1 for example indicate this... if i can dare to say it, this thread is really close to look like the neogaf thread in OT

Too many people shit into this one for it to be diluted away, sorry. It was doomed from the start. Remember Doritogate? People actually took that seriously, on both sides. And there was even a woman involved! I'm sure she got death threats too for threatening a libel case against Rab Florence, someone from the press side starting a conversation about impropriety in the press, but it was taken seriously nonetheless.
The tone now is very different. This one is all about anti-progressive, anti-feminist blowhards thinking people want to take their toys away and they act like it's about press ethics. I don't even know what they want the press side to look like at this point. Reviews and regurgitated PR statements just because people write articles they don't like? Fucking don't read them, won't even have to write to advertisers to pull ads!

People hating on gamers are bigots? :heh

Gamers suck, like metalheads suck, like comic book nerds suck, like weeaboos suck, nerds just suck in general.

Now, if you're a nerd but that only goes as far as enjoying nerdy shit, hell I'll throw in having a few referential t-shirts and posters, you're OK. The moment you decide that's your life when you don't depend on it financially(you make em, review them, or write about them for cash) and not just as a hobby is exactly why you're a fucking loser.

Jesus christ at these people acting like this shit is apartheid. Who the fuck cares if some chick who makes games dissed you? Be an adult and stop taking this shit seriously. There's only one thing you should do in regards to entertainment, play/watch/read/listen to it, maybe enjoy it, then move the fuck on. Anything beyond that is in many ways dumb and a waste of time. Yeah I'm dumb and I waste my time a lot, but it's better to know you're a jackass than act like you're a genius.

The moment you decide that's your life when you don't depend on it financially(you make em, review them, or write about them for cash) and not just as a hobby is exactly why you're a fucking loser.

Jesus christ at these people acting like this shit is apartheid. Who the fuck cares if some chick who makes games dissed you? Be an adult and stop taking this shit seriously. There's only one thing you should do in regards to entertainment, play/watch/read/listen to it, maybe enjoy it, then move the fuck on. Anything beyond that is in many ways dumb and a waste of time. Yeah I'm dumb and I waste my time a lot, but it's better to know you're a jackass than act like you're a genius.

but it's not some chick who makes games that dissed people, it's a bunch of gaming blogs that basicaly decided you automaticaly belongs to the second category and coincidentaly right after being accused of pulling shit, it would be like if several sport websites decided to call every soccer fan a violent hooligan, i'd be surprised if nobody took the piss and in that case you wouldn't be either

anyway totalbiscuit, the editor in chief of escapist and the editor in chief of gamefront discuss the whole issue, it's 1 hour long, i didn't watch it all, if you care more about this than "lol neckbeards!" go watch the rest for me

Magus, I'm not watching that dumb video. And don't think anyone takes your bullshit about this seriously. Your faux outrage over gaming being "ruined" by a few articles is hilarious coming from a dude who pirates every game out there.

gaming deserves to be ruined.

seriously, we need ONE FULL YEAR with no animu titty elves, killstreak masturbathons, or manboy edgy pandering in general. all female characters must be fully clothed and their scripts must pass the bechdel test. realistic shooting mechanics must be replaced with interactive socratic dialogues on culture, consumerism, humanism, and possibly menstruation.

i'm serious. i need to see underdeveloped manchildren SUFFER in a world where they can find no validation or escape, and where they must give up their only solace to stare down the endless grey limbo of their helpless, inconsequential little lives.

then will i be pleased.

Nintendo has offered all of that since 1889 and yet you all reject them instead of embracing the harmony of whimsy.

yes, but ninthings have accepted and embraced the empty wastelands of their useless existences

ninthings do not beget #gamergate; they beget pants-wetting apoplexy over sheik and zelda being separate characters in smash

...and frankly, between the two, give me the nintarded :dead :dead :dead

And then there's his brother, who gets to jump higher just because he's taller? What kind of stereotype bullshit is that?

what the fuck has pirating game does with this other than you being a rude little dipshit? my "faux outrage" is just trying to explain the situation, but you guys are a bunch of shitlord that have spent like 1000 pages worth of content mocking another forum, so of course you won't accept another explanation other than "gamers will be gamers"

it's funny how a few page ago oscar was all like "i don't need this kind of toxicity in my life" when the most toxic place i know off coincidentaly is this one
