Does the Zoe Quinn/Kotaku scandal affect your gaming habits in any way?
I stopped reading Kotaku months ago when they had the gall to go on a white knight feminist crusade against George Kamitani's artwork (he is one of the greatest Japanese game artists in the history of the medium).
So, no, their little scandal shows just how disgustingly hypocritical both parties are.
Never trusted reviews much anyway, so this whole thing hasn't affected me much. As for changing my gaming habits, this scandal hasn't changed it at all whatsoever.

Well, I really don't care how obnoxious you think it is. He's still right.
Well since I found out about it I've been spending less time playing games and paying attention to this more. Because the state of the gaming industry and those who report on it is important to me. And anyone looking to get into the game industry as a developer, reviewer, journalist, etc., should care about this. We shouldn't be okay with this happening just because it's been going on for a long time and has happened before.

No, but I do see it as the final nail in the coffin for the already joke that is called gaming journalism.
Considering everyone is acting like this is some great shocking scandal they never saw coming in a million years they seem to be under the impression that the gaming industry was immune to this sort of thing. That's the only way I can rationalize the crying and melodrama going on here.
You don't have to cry, scream and rant like a raving lunatic to take a stand against something. But I suppose this is GameFAQs. It's where melodrama thrives like a pack of weeds. Useless and inconsequential, but convinced it makes a difference when it's nothing more than mildly annoying.

Don't forget the willful ignorance.
If bright colours and a sense of fun make you afraid that something is childish, then the biggest child around is you.
I think if you trusted a site like Kotaku for game reviews to begin with then you might be beyond help. They're like the PewDiePie of Gaming Journalism, they go for sheer quantity over quality.
But otherwise no, I never really read reviews from the journo sites, I only ever really looked at them to see whats coming out, then look at metacritic and the like and guage between user reviews and actual reviewers to see if the game is worth it. Also talking to friends who have similar game tastes but more money works out well too.
Although one thing I didn't understand was why RPS was under fire for the whole Zoe scandal, didn't the guy leave RPS long before any of this came out? Is it just because they used to hire him?
Doesn't matter how well you're doing, if you're arguing on the internet, you've already lost.
