I totally loved the video and it reinforced many of my thoughts about how the internet can make and break people. It was smart, well done and full of nuanced points which is what the internet needs. I really want to talk to the makers of it because it was brilliant.

@SamFo: I had a conversation with a friend of mine about this issue that branched into one about white privilege, we are both black and he is a couple of years younger than I am (I'm 34). Once I explained the concept he rebuffed by saying "Why are you talking about this? He didn't want to even acknowledge that the possibility of these things even existing.
I believe that the people mad a Patrick are just like my friend wearing huge blinders about the world around them who are incapable of thinking that other people come up against these issues daily.
It's extremely sad.
@Gordo789: I remember that story and the comments eventually always seem to victim blame when allegations of sexism and racism arise. It's a damn shame that the burden of proof is almost astronomically high.
Thanks for posting it.
@RazielCuts: I remember seeing that video and I appreciate his sentiment. I think he is totally off base.
It's good to see that people are speaking up about this in positive ways. I wonder though if this were about POC (people of color) in the gaming industry if it would have gotten this kind of traction?
I recently did a interview with Rowan Parker to talk about 4am. He gives some insight into how the concept of the game came together and how DJ Baiyon worked with them. Check it out and let me know what you think of the interview.
I would much rather free dlc instead of the game, giving you a game that no one is going to play doesn't really do anything for most people.
