In that way, it perfectly fits "gamergate," which in the grand scheme, is extremely trivial, but matters to the people it matters to (duh.)
I don't know to whom it matters. I'm as hardcore a "gamer" as any and I really could not care less about ANY of this shit. I've always known reviews could only be taken with a grain of salt, and somebody somewhere has always found video games offensive. Maybe so many people are talking about it because games have been shit lately and they're all as bored as I am.
