I feel like every follow up article about a topic he writes (skull girls, women in gaming, etc) starts with him condescendingly talking about the poorly educated masses and their comments. Perhaps he doesn't mean to come off that way, but it does sound insulting whenever people disagree with his point of view - no matter how the comment is written.
I think it would be wise for him to remember a few things:
1. It's the Internet. Anonymous people say stupid things.
2. The people that are reading these topics aren't always well versed on the topic and are generally in a younger demo. Cut 12 year old Joey some slack.
3. they're video games. We can be passionate about games, but at the end of the day, they're just games.
4. Take that attitude for peers in the industry and those in the industries the topics are about, but not for the "armchairs".
Don't get me wrong, I like Patrick, his writing and his appearances. This is not an attack on him personally or the content he produces. It's more a request for the reaction to those stories. I don't think I'm alone in this, but I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
