Does the Zoe Quinn/Kotaku scandal affect your gaming habits in any way?
samuraigaiden posted...I think we all should refrain from judging anyone's personal life. The big deal here is the fact an individual has been exposed for manipulating the media for her own benefit with the help from journalists and the media is CURRENTLY covering up for her and pretending nothing happened.
Not for them, no. But what has happened as a direct result of this? Both polygon and kotaku have made public statements about changing their ethics polices. Kotaku's chief directly addressed the clique (his words) and promised to separate his staff from it.
One blogger appears to have been suspended or fired (still not sure which)
Is that not really even more of a story than if they just did a story?
Where's the poll?

Ever since the scandal I've have fallen into depression. I barely sleep, eat and have sex with my beautiful supermodel wife. My friends and family, as a result have also fallen in to depression. I can't get the scandal out of my head! Every time I close my eyes I picture Zoe...
Clearly the only way to truly get her out of your head is to sleep with her.
NO. NOW GO AWAY.
i long to see their faces...
regardless of the decay
Gaming habits? No. Trust in official game reviews? Yes.
Pie what have you learned from this experience? I'll get warned for posting gifs of people killing themselves AND making underage jokes.

"I know you want, more than anything, a world free of hypocrisy and cronyism and cool kids. This is not an impossible goal. It's just a goal you should completely forget about because how dare you ever criticize a woman for anything, you miserable filthy misogynist tool of the patriarchy. You get unfairly lumped in with the bigots and misogynists, and that's just too damn bad. #dealwithit, you cis scum."
I wasn't interested in her game before, but if I was, I wouldn't be anymore. Not after hearing about the scandal and finding out she has a tumblr and is a huge hipster. This doesn't change my habits or make me feel any different about the indie devs I actually like. I don't base my buying habits on reviews, but I do like to read them to get a sense of what a game is like past all the bs reviewer rhetoric.
It's pretty despicable, trying to sleep your way to good favor. Imagine if she was a guy who slept with a female reviewer. Internet Feminists wouldn't shut up about it, as hypocritical as they are.
RIP Robin Williams
Never heard of her until a few days ago. Don't care either.
