Op Ed

Total Biscuit - Why you shouldn't be excited - A look at games media's role in hype. Thanks Ant via HARDOCP.
TotalBiscuit brings you a discussion video on the games media's involvement in hype campaigns for unreleased or in-development titles and the negative impact it has on the industry.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Videogames Are For Everybody. Thanks nin.
There has been criticism, too, which has resulted in gamers claiming that we hate them. We don’t hate gamers. We are gamers. Numerous (often offensive and widely incoherent) attempts to provoke controversy and scandal about the relationship between game developers and the games press have resulted in some people saying that RPS should be destroyed. Perhaps unsurprisingly, we disagree with that proposition, and we’ll explain why we disagree in this article.

None of those are RPS. It was phrased badly but "gamers are over" wasn't attacking gaming culture, it was attacking bullying and bigotry in gaming. Nothing has proven their point more than the response, including the failure of people like you to see the difference between gaming and these behaviours.

I'm sorry but that's a bunch of crap. People ticked off by the gaming media's painting of gamers with such a broad brush is not proving the gaming media's point. Not a single one of us disgusted with how low gaming media has sunk in attacking its own market has any problem whatsoever recognizing the difference between bad behavior and gaming. That is such garbage I can't believe you would ever claim it.

Not people who are ticked off, people who are building blacklists based on conspiracy theories and playing six degrees of separation. People who are harassing the families of so-called journalists. People who have in turn prompted this response from RPS. There are people doing this and they are calling themselves gamers and believe they are doing these things in gaming's name. These people are absolutely treating bullying as a part of gaming culture.

Maybe so (and that's a bit different from your original point) but the vast majority of gamers over 13, and virtually everyone here, recognize this segment of "gamers" as assholes.
