which can be deeply frustrating when after 30 minutes of carefully poised plays and turnover-avoidance, your opponent bugs out and the rewards for a win are cruelly denied you.
She has stated that games can have a correlary effect on behaviour yes
I agree with her that their are aspects of the games industry and games themselves that help normalise certain views for a very small number of consumers, but the important words here are 'aspects' and 'small'.
Anita and Thompson created moral panic for those who consider them to be significant others
Couldn't imagine a restraunt owner or a doctor having much time for gaming!
And it does the classic FTP thing of leveling your character and gear quickly to start with (to get you hooked) and then turning it into an interminable grind.
Since a new story mission becomes available only when you level up (currently requiring me to play multiple side quests to do), it's hard to imagine how it'll be possible to see let alone enjoy the story later on.
The point I'm making is that you're not "partially" agreeing with the narrative, you're agreeing with it almost entirety.
I never said that the political aspect didn't exist, instead I insisted that the journalistic ethics aspect was the main one.
Try to remember that the dozen or so "Gamers Are Dead" articles that were posted within a period of roughly 48 hours and kicked the whole thing into overdrive were VERY heavy in feminist "all gamers are misogynist"-rhetoric.
Well that's really mature...
"I will not listen to any legitimate concerns because the targets of these accusations say that the people bringing up the concerns are evil" from an outsider's standpoint.
You claimed that GG got started because of outrage about Quinn's infidelity
I mentioned that the article is from October because because you keep using it as proof of Quinn being an ongoing person of interest when she had just stopped being that around the time the article was written.
The version that you're clearly drinking the cool aid on has been specifically set up to discredit the movement
It clearly states that it was not about a personal attack on Quinn, but the ethics implications of her affairs with people who gave her and her game publicity.
I think the main disagreement we have here is when GamerGate actually started.
Feel free to refer to the previous link about Grayson...
The reason why I'm bringing the media's own narrative up is that you're following it wholeheartedly
The fact that something starts with one thing and leads to another does not make the other an invalid point.
The reality is that Quinn hasn't been relevant in this context for almost a year already.
You can go on about Quinn all day and night and I won't blame you for it. That's basically the narrative the media has spun and I can't blame you for drinking the cool aid on it.
A scandalous and inflammatory story, it is little wonder critics of her game and character were drawn to the accusations.
Since October of last year she's basically been pretty much irrelevant as far as it comes to what the movement is actually striving towards.
Seeing how MrTomFTW decided to delete my several paragraph long reply because one sentence mentioning a rape accusation,
If you think gaming journalism is still in a mess, gather like minded people who are only interested in that issue, and find a new banner. The old one just undermines anything you have to say now.
Why? Because she had clearly shown in the past that she wasn't a very nice person and quite frankly far from the saint she was being made into.
GG has actually dug up plenty of suspicious behavior on both the press and publishers' behavior.
The media decided to that because Quinn was a woman, they had to hate her because she was a woman
You only have to spend five minutes on KiA to see that GamerGate is not about ethics in journalism but about stopping the encroachment of liberalism into their hobby.
Simply put, gamers do not like the hyper-politicization of their pastime, regardless of it's source.
So Kojima is an auteur now?
USA and Japan, fine, Germany... maybe.. Russia?!
So how does this get a 10/10 again?
Are you saying that microtransactions as a gameplay element don't exist solely to extract cash from people?
Seeing as I was enjoying hunting monsters, rather than having a goal of getting the best gear as quickly as possible, it just seemed to miss the point of playing the game if you don't actually enjoy the grind.
Rather than some people paying to skip a tedious grind, how about just having a mode where it isn't a tedious grind but actually enjoyable gameplay?
Adding microtransactions means that the only reason for the mode to exist is as an economy of time vs money to grab more cash from players
Why would the MP part be valid for "fun-level" criticism, but not "value-for-money" criticism?
You're trying to separate the MP out and saying it shouldn't be subject to the same level of criticism as the rest of the game. That argument is much harder to justify IMO.
this is a huge problem that ruins most free to play games
Retailers should be forced to put large stickers on game boxes warning buyers that their £50 doesn't actually buy them the whole game, and put a total price on the game box which includes the cost of every possible micro-transaction.
There's no place for micro transactions in AAA games.
Cliffhanger endings are a lazy deceitful practice that deserves every bit of hate they receive.
People need to step foot out the door and see how many hours of entertainment they can get for £15. Spoiler, not many.
An AR-15 is simply a modular rifle. It is no different than most rifles,
The overall murder rate is similar to other countries, people just use differing means.
