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.
Yeah I read it. I would even go so far as to agree with you on most of your points (and most of their points) but the fact of the matter remains that ALL gamers are not the minority of trolls but ALL gamers are very protective of their hobby and any attempts to smear or generalize opinion about them or their hobby. This is what Sarkesian and others tried to do, and when the minority of idiots lashed back at her the establishment overreacted and took a huge giant dump on the gaming community in general. For some reason developers and publishers are hugely hostile to the long time hobbyist gamer. They have been for years, and now this comes along and the hostility bubbles right up again.
Is it so hard for someone to say "We condemn the assholes who threaten death over the internet, but our games are ART and we stand with the majority of gamers who we believe are not represented by the minority of dickwads on the internet"??
I have a nifty blue line!
