So what exactly is Gamergate?

Posted on Friday, October 17 2014 @ 10:39:56 CEST by


One of the topics that's been trending for a couple of weeks now is Gamergate. So far we haven't really reported on it because it's pretty hard to understand what the big deal is and because the whole thing just keeps sprawling. TG Daily just published a primer on the origins of Gamergate:
While we won’t rehash this whole mess verbatim, what it essentially boils down to is a number of female gamers have been targeted by ‘net trolls, and the trolling has included death threats, which has sent several of them on the run. It began when one game designer was targeted by a disgruntled ex-boyfriend, who claimed she was giving sexual favors to web editors in exchange for good reviews on their sites. Then the floodgates of hate opened, and “gamergate,” as it’s called, has been national news.
