To put it plainly, she set out specifically to find exactly what she was looking for, so of course she's going to find it. There's nothing scientific or honest about going in with a predetermined result and then using any evidence you find to support the result you started with.

That's not to say games aren't guilty of at least some of what she's talking about, but focusing entirely on a perceived problem instead of the bigger picture is disingenuous at best.

Exactly right on both points. Bravo!

And the post below by Cpmartin illustrates exactly why the sexist slant in gaming exists in the first place. And lets be honest here: mediums far older and more ingrained in society (namely TV and movies) have established that slant by selling the sex constantly. Videogames are merely serving a market already pre-disposed to wanting that type of content because of these more powerful mediums. Blaming videogames for anything more than following the big boys is retarded.

. My money is on when all is said and done there will be a great game at the end of the epic development time.

id certainly take that bet if you were serious, and there was some way to objectively measure the valuation of a "great" game... some people are saying watch dogs is "great", some are saying quite different things

Yeah, fair enough. There are some games, like (staying with the Space Sim theme) like X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter and Wing Commander that are virtually universally considered to be "great", which is what I was getting at. And I was being serious; the only question in my mind is how long until Star Citizen ships AND how long until the shipped product fixed enough that it has all of its promised features and works for everyone flawlessly? With a game this ambitious I just can't see it shipping without some problems.

She is not a crusader. She is not brave or noble. She is an attention-starved, egotistical, self-important twat who sees wrong in anything that doesn't portray a woman in her narrow, hair-brained, ignorant image of what a woman should be. My experience is that most women think she's an absolute fool. Way more than guys, because too many guys are afraid to call stupidity for what it is because it may harm their white-knight status if they do so against someone erroneously and ridiculously calling out supposed sexism.

Just because sexism exists doesn't make anyone who proclaims themselves a champion of anti-sexism a hero. Especially in the case of this idiot.

She shouldn't be raped of course, but she should forever more be ignored for making such an asinine assertion. Such an idiot.

Yeah but this is kind of how Roberts has always operated. My money is on when all is said and done there will be a great game at the end of the epic development time. The problem is that in the meantime with all the fluff it just seems like the team is meandering aimlessly towards nothing in particular. I suspect that is one of the downfalls of NOT having a publisher - there's no one to hold your feet to the fire and say, 'come on guys, let's get moving on this and get something done in a timely manner'. Right now all of the fluff updates give the impression that the team lacks focus.

These study sims are astounding in their detail. I wish I still had the time to dedicate to learning to fly them like I used to. Nothing is more rewarding than being able to play a successful mission in one of these hardcore flight sims.

How much have you failed in life if you have to pay a hacker to get a fucking achievement for you?

And how stupid do you have to be to think that it's a good idea?

Way too much to justify for a game for me right now. I'll wait until release.

Oh my own little stalker troll is back. How cute. Seems I can't say anything in a space sim thread without "Stupid one" having to post something he probably thinks is terribly clever.

So is the plan to force workforce diversity everywhere? Hiring people because of their race (whatever it is) is wrong. Are we going to have diversity quotas for the NBA players too?

Careful! Let's not open that can of worms!

I don't find those "Worth a Buy" videos useful except for entertainment value. He is hypercritical of everything, and exaggerates the negatives of a game like mad. Still, his videos are "Worth a Watch" because he has a certain charm even as he is ranting like a lunatic.

Screw all that worrying about this, that, and the other thing when it comes to what I eat or drink. It's just so pointless. We all gotta die of something, healthy people too. You may outlive me by 10, maybe even 20 years, but does it really matter in the big scheme of things? I'm going to be happy while I'm here, regardless of how long or short of a time that may be.

I don't know anybody who was happy about cancer and heart disease in the last years of their life, either. But if you want to live them out in agony and doped out of your mind on a mountain of pain pills have fun with that I guess. It's your right not to think ahead.

I don't have a particularly unhealthy diet; I just don't waste any energy worrying about what is in the things I do like to consume. And healthily people get cancer and heart disease all of the time; it's just a crapshoot really, and not one I am going to waste one single solitary minute worrying about.
