The RotCast Episode #205 – A Game To Kill For

Some of you may know that I love video games and I have since I was around 6 years old, maybe sooner. Some of you may also know that for a couple of years I ran a gaming blog called eclecticgamer. There are happenings on the internet right now concerning the behavior of people both in and out of the gaming community. This is what is known as
#gamergate. It is NOT a movement based on hate or misogyny or anything
negative thing you’ve heard from hit pieces posted on mainstream websites. This is a movement that has been brewing for several years and has now come to a head. The first hour of this show consists of my thoughts on gamergate.

Please understand that one thing I value the most in this life is friendship, so that was my basis for trying to understand how the indie game dev community and bloggers/journalists came to their nepotistic relationship. It’s their argument that friendships and romance are natural occurances within an industry. It’s our argument that such relationships distort the ability of lesser known developers to get their game recognized by a large audience. It is MY argument that divorcing themselves from “gamers” in an unprofessional and hostile way only serves to divide people and make them angry. #gamergate is the pushback to this divorce. You reap what you sow.
