Wow, I feel like Jeff summarised my own views on this issue perfectly. There may be a valid discussion on ethics in game journalism that needs to be had, but GamerGate is not the way to do that. They've poisoned that particular well, and all "moderate" GG supporters need to realise that and distance themselves from these lunatics as much as possible. And to the people on the other side of the fence, I find it really frustrating that so many of them assumed that, as Jeff put it, silence equals complicity. People have a right to be angry about the injustices that they are seeing perpetrated, but that doesn't mean that you need to go to war with these 4chan scumbags, a war that you'll lose because the other side has all the time in the world and lacks such inhibitions as empathy and common sense.
Everybody needs to calm down and try and get through this - if we all just shout really loudly at each other over the internet, then the real sentiments being expressed, the real heart of the matter, will be lost in the noise.
Also, video games are pretty awesome. I'm enjoying messing around with the new Crusader Kings II expansion, and I've really been enjoying the time I've spent with The Long Dark, a Steam early access survival game. And I'm really looking forward to Civilisation: Beyond Earth; I am so ready for a new Firaxis game to just chew up my free time for a few weeks.
