Gamer Gate is a fucking train wreck. I can't take anyone who supports it seriously. Especially since it's based on a lie.
I support it. None of the awful harassment that comes with it. That is obviously horrible and no one should ever support harassing or disparaging others. But I agree that games journalism is ethically bankrupt and that games media should never even be considered journalism. Games journalism is marketing from where I'm sitting. As a consumer of video games and a frequenter of gaming websites...the entirety of the website covering games has become/probably always was advertising and I find that to be a bit shitty. And shady.
I don't think that games journalism is a shinning beacon by any means, but at the end of the day it is just an enthusiast press about what is, for the most part, a frivolous pass time. And I've noticed that GamerGate doesn't seem to care about ethics violations with AAA publishers and the press, instead focusing most of their attention on progressive and minority voices, which is why I think a lot of GG folks are either being deceptive or self-deceptive about what they really want.
