    #GamerGate: Ethics in Games Journalism & Uncensored Waifus

    Post by Netscape on Thu Jul 14, 2016 8:36 pm

    Been a while since I posted here, but how about a megathread for discussing the GamerGate controversy, games journalism and video game censorship! Cool



    A Brief Introduction
    GamerGate is the gaming community's push-back against corruption and censorship in games journalism and the gaming industry. GamerGate is now approaching it's two year anniversary and still going strong. While the GamerGate discussion wages on across multiple forums and platforms, it's two main bases of operation are the Twitter hashtag and the KotakuInAction subreddit. Though not as a large as KotakuInAction, /v/ and GamerGateHQ also serve as major ports of call. While perhaps not a port of call, I hope we can have a civil and productive discussion on this ongoing controversy.

    Shortly after it's creation, many games journalists and political extremists known as "social justice warriors" attacked GamerGate and claimed that it was "nothing but angry white men." In response to these allegations, NotYourShield was created showcasing the diversity of GamerGate supporters and giving a voice to the voiceless. Today one of GamerGate's main main operations is Operation Torrential Downpour, which raises awareness about and protests censorship in gaming. Lately Torrential Downpour's focus has been on translators changing games and stories from the author's original intent to insert their own political agendas or out of fear of backlash. Wherever censorship and corruption lie, GamerGate seeks it out and exposes it.

    Games Radar (plus BBC & Yahoo) completely drop the ball in reporting on blatant Reddit troll post? Looks like they didn't even bother fact-checking, it supported their narrative against Ghostbusters fans.

    Captain Carbine, the screenwriter and project lead of the upcoming GamerGate cartoon series, just did an interview with Mark Kern as part of his #CelebrateGaming initiative. #CelebrateGaming aims to celebrate the great things about gaming, which are too often overlooked in favor of controversy and drama.

    Mombot has written an article about how she set up a sting operation to expose anti-GamerGaters as doxers and the true harassers of the GamerGate controversy.

    Appabend compares Japanese and US sales of Toyko Mirage Sessions. Looks like it's official, censorship does NOT sell more copies.

    Very controversial video from TheQuQu on how he (and an anon) believe GamerGate should move forward. He reads the Titan post and offers his take on it. I disagree with a fair amount of it, but it's an interesting take.

    Lynn Walsh from SPJ Airplay and SavePoint has become president of the Society of Professional Journalists for 2016-2017. Good to see an ethical journalist (with an interest in GG and games journalism) taking the helm of the SPJ.

    NEW ORLEANS – For the first time in the Society of Professional Journalists’ 107-year history, three women will lead the organization for the coming year.

    Lynn Walsh, investigative executive producer at NBC 7 San Diego, became national president of SPJ tonight during the Presidents Installation Banquet at Excellence in Journalism 2016.

    Rebecca Baker, managing editor at the New York Law Journal, is now president-elect, and Alex Tarquinio, special issues editor at The Real Deal, will as secretary-treasurer for the coming year.

    Walsh graduated from the Ohio University E.W. Scripps School of Journalism and has worked as a journalist nationally for the E.W. Scripps national desk as well as locally across California, Ohio, Texas and Florida in data and investigative reporting. An Emmy award-winning journalist, Walsh currently leads the KNSD investigative team. She takes the baton from Paul Fletcher, publisher and editor-in-chief of Virginia Lawyers Weekly, who has served as SPJ president for the past year.

    A member of SPJ since 2004, Walsh has served as secretary-treasurer and president-elect. She is also a member of the ethics and FOI committees, and was selected to serve on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) advisory committee, which works to improve the FOIA process.

    Kotaku writes garbage article shaming an extremely niche anime and it's creators for pretty much no reason.
