This may sound dumb but can someone explain Gamergate? submitted by jewjoints to gaming

RangerSix 1 points 48 points (+49|-1) ago

Copypasta from an earlier comment I made on this very subject:

In a nutshell:

GamerGate is a scandal involving unethical conduct amongst video game journalists (including, amongst other things, failing to disclose relationships they have with developers/publishers and failing to label certain forms of paid advertising content as such in order to distinguish it from independently-written content).

Kotaku is one of several websites whose employees are involved in the scandal; other notable examples include Gamasutra, Polygon, Rock Paper Shotgun, and Destructoid.

A few resources to get you started:

Now, to expand on the above... the seeds of the scandal had been planted long before the events in 2014 that caused it to erupt.

For example, there were incidents like these:

  • The firing of Jeff Gerstmann (allegedly for writing a negative review of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men)
  • The whole Shadow of Mordor debacle (where the publisher - Warner Brothers Interactive, IIRC - tried to insert punitive clauses into YouTube review contracts; IIRC, they boiled down to "if you publish a negative review after signing this contract, we get to sue your pants off")
  • The smear campaign against Brad Wardell, CEO of Stardock Games, which deliberately mischaracterized a (since resolved) legal battle against a former employee who - if memory serves - was both fired and taken to court for gross misconduct and incompetence; said employee unsuccessfully countersued, claiming discrimination, retaliation, and sexual harassment
  • A very similar smear campaign against Max Temkin, creator of Cards Against Humanity, which involved since-disproven allegations of sexual assault
  • And last, but not least, the infamous DoritosGate incident of 2012, which spawned the whole "Geoff Keighley, Dorito Pope" meme.

It had to be done. submitted by A_Clever_User_Name to funny

How does the old saying go?

Oh yes: "never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by incompetence or coincidence."

It's really quite simple; to paraphrase Jim Morrison, "Control the media, control the mind."

If you can control what information people receive - and, more importantly, how that information is presented - you can control public opinion.
