be a goddamn person
be a goddamn person
this is the trailer that I referenced in that last post.
between the misogynistic #gamergate campaign that forces women from their homes with harassment and threats while pretending to care about “ethics” and this garbage ass game that celebrates indiscriminate murder. I do not want to be a part of games culture anymore. Even the way off the board role I played by maintaining this blog, I want no part of it.
I love videogames, I always have but the past few months of #gamergate borne hatred and harassment are just too fucking much for me to feel okay with and this fucking garbage is the cherry on top.
if you think #gamergate is okay, if you think this game is cool, go outside, grow the fuck up.
I want to underline my last post with it but I don’t want to promote that shit
you might have noticed that this blog doesn’t get updated as regular as usual.
the idiotic, abusive, misogynist #gamergate campaign has kind of killed my interest in publicly having anything to do with games.
today, a trailer for a game called “Hatred” was released. It’s a game where you senselessly and graphically murder innocent people. It’s totally devoid of humor and the developer is couching it as their effort to resist “political correctness”
it is garbage, it is filth.
between the awful of the misogynist #gamergate hate campaign and this aggressively awful game, I do not feel like being a part of videogames anymore and this blog is going on “hiatus”
I do not want to be a part of something that encourages so much hate and violence, I do not want to be a part of something that defends that much hate and violence.
maybe this blog will come back in a few months or something, but as someone who has loved games for over 20 years and is also a grown ass man, I don’t know how I can be a part of this without feeling like I’m betraying my humanity on some level.
#gamergate was right
I keep trying to like final fantasy 4 but I’m pretty sure this game just sucks
the problem with the little memory card slot in GC cases is that someday you’ll leave your card in the soul calibur 2 case. ten years later you’ll be looking for it and you’ll never think to look in the soul calibur 2 case because why did I buy soul calibur 2 for the gamecube you can’t play a fighting game with that controller
I want to wish a happy 20th birthday to Doom II: Hell on Earth
there will never be another videogame this good.
