What does it mean to be a gamer?


Not bullshit.

Interesting question. The easiest way is to look for internet humour which is a bit risque. Not game-specific memes, common misconception among the poseurs. You can’t fake internet humour, it takes years to become a nyan-thousand tier shitlord. They aren’t PC.

  1. Anyone using it for political point-scoring a la “I consider myself to be a gamer” is not.
  2. Anyone claiming the hipster “I was a gamer before it was cool” unless explicitly asked, is not.
  3. Anyone trying to turn a hobby into a lifestyle choice with appended status, is not.

It’s all about the game. Not the players.
I don’t play online anymore for example, because other people break my focus and the fucking lag, man. Fucking lag.

Also —

Mobile games don’t count.

Except maybe Snake.

Thus concludes our super-special snowflake outing.

There are ethical questions about people [DS: ‘journalists’] that we feel need to be addressed. …We knew bringing this project out …would also put us in the crosshairs.

Parody video up top was referencing this hypocritical BS, if you want to avoid giving Anita any more attention;

Zoe Quinn isn’t a target of misogyny, men are hiding her with an internet blackout

Signal boost: http://www.returnofkings.com/42399/why-is-the-zoe-quinn-scandal-blacked-out-across-the-internet Read the whole thing, if you can.

As the feminists repeatedly say, gaming and the games industry is run by men. When the facts of Zoe Quinn’s cheating and whoring for promotion are suppressed, this is being done by men.

Why would anybody with any sort of social, governmental, or technological power care whether a used-up looking female game designer slept with a few guys to further her career? After all, these sorts of transactional exchanges happens every day in the corporate world, don’t they?…

n.b. And they’re probably illegal.

This precisely is why Zoe Quinn’s actions are so damaging—she would be the perfect useful idiot for anyone desiring to make legions of low-testosterone males question everything they are fed from birth about the nature of women and humanity in general. Her well-documented actions (at least prior to the gag order) show that women are no exception to the idea that all humans can be vile, opportunistic, and self-serving given the right motivations. That women are not the helpless damsels-in-distress snowflakes that need white knighting, special treatment, and “protected group” status. And that social justice warriors, for all of their self-righteous bluster, are perhaps even more full-of-shit than the rest of us when their actions go under the microscope.

RoK agreed in part with Anita, I am shocked.

The face of journalistic integrity.

Ah, you see, it’s different when they do it, because women are naturally superior. /sarc

Seductive temptress of at least one married man, wrote she would never, ever cheat because it’s wrong.

If they really wanted to get to her, they would upload dozens of torrents of Depression Quest, which has recently been re-released to profit from this ‘scandal’.

Pros for promo!

What ever happened to the guy she was meant to have assaulted at that wedding? Why doesn’t someone interview him? Like the cops?
