It bothers me when people say that gamers on the internet don't know anything about game design. That's a reductive smear. I thought Dannys quote was really good until that shitty little nugget. The internet is too big and there are too many smart people that play videogames for that to be even close to accurate.

You're right buuuuuuuut... The thing is that the "smart people that play videogames" are not the ones losing their minds over this, hence they are not the ones who prompted his comments.

@milkman: Okay, what about her posting on the forums that X is her favorite mega man, tweeting that she's never actually played a MM game, then deleting that tweet? I don't care that she hasn't played MM, but I do care that she's starting off her job by lying to the community.

I don't know if you're aware of what PR is, but it's basically people paid to lie to you. It's something to be aware of when you make it into the real world, so this is probably a good, innocuous way for you to get comfortable with the concept.

"She just doesn't have the proper experience" is the gamer's dog-whistle code for "because she's a woman." Dudes are upset because a community manager, essentially a glorified PR rep, is going to redesign the game because she suggested that you have the option of playing as a woman in their stupid cartoon game? YEAH NO UNDERLYING ISSUES THERE AT ALL NOPE

It would be interesting to see what the fallout of this would be. I'd feel bad for the Youtube stars who make a living off of playing video games though if it were true.

no one should feel bad for people who make a living off of youtube
