Does the Zoe Quinn/Kotaku scandal affect your gaming habits in any way?

I now disregard the sites I visited frequently before. I will very rarely read reviews from now on, but hey, that will probably be better for me in the long run.

The squirrel who makes weird noises outside my window sometimes has a greater affect on my gaming habits than whoever the people you mentioned are do

No....
I don't really see the problem with using sex to promote your game. If it's a tool you have, use it.


I cant believe someone actually posted this garbage and people quoted it in agreement.

Conflict of interest is a pretty big deal and at this point it goes way beyond what zoe quinn was personally involved in.

To answer tcs question, no it doesnt really effect my personal gaming habits and i didnt trust those sites to begin with. Her actions and the actions of her supporters have hurt many innocent people, which is what i care about.

I had no interest in Depression Quest.

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.


I stopped reading their website back in 2009 when then went full Weeaboo mode

I don't know anything that is going on, and I don't care. I'm above all that.

No, I don't care. All of this junk is as old as humanity. Who cares.

It doesn't affect me in the slightest. I haven't taken video game journalism seriously since I was in high school.

No, I always knew gaming journalism was a joke.
