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.

...A term which has somehow become synonimous with "sexist pig" thank you very much...

Um, no, I don't believe that's the case at all. People are jumping to conclusions here. I identify as a gamer, and I too agree that articles like "Gamers Are Over" were poorly worded, and sound like it's lumping everyone together. But anyone with intelligence can read those articles and realize that they are not doing so. They're specifically calling out the actual misogynists. I don't feel threatened by any of these articles, just as I don't feel threatened when people use the term "SJW" to lump another group of people together. I'm all for games becoming more inclusive. That doesn't mean games featuring damsels in distress, or Bayonetta-style half-nakedness need to stop existing, it just means more types of games that cater to more tastes should exist.

I wish more people would actually read/watch/listen to the actual things their criticizing and reasonably assessing what's actually going. I'm wondering how many commenting here actually read the RPS post.

They're also calling out people that look the other way when the actual misogynists say things but get angry when someone calls them out at it.

They're not calling those people misogynists, racists, or bad people, but they're telling those people they have some responsibility in how other people view gamers.
