If you are a gamergater, I urge you to stop IMMEDIATELY.
This is not a joke.
There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING good about gamergating and those who gamergate are literally dead inside and don’t deserve to be called human.
PLEASE JUST STOP. I AM BEGGING YOU. I REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED YOU TO STOP THIS GAMERGATING MADNESS RIGHT NOW. YOU ARE KILLING PEOPLE. SOMEONE SUICIDED BECAUSE GAMERGATERS.
GAMERGATING IS JUST WRONG.
What. No, I haven’t been actively posting on the forums recently. Neither do I recall shitposting on them. Don’t you dare fucking call me a troll, because I hate that term, and it does not apply here. You must be thinking of someone else.
I have not been brainwashed by Anti-GG lies. Anti-GGers can go fuck themselves for all I care. I’m just stating complete and honest truths, along with some obvious jokes, because this is just hilarious.
I am not crying over anything, except with tears of laughter at responses like this.
Yes, I expected people ignore that, because it was clearly a joke – GG obviously can’t be behind bad things in this world like celebrity deaths or stormy weather and I was a bit drunk when I typed that.
This isn’t one of them “jokes on those GG guys, i was only pretending to be retarded” dealies either, because I still stand firmly on the fact that I would really appreciate it if both sides of this GG war just stopped. Stop associating with pro-GG or anti-GG and just stop and smell the roses. I am not saying that in a “jerk”-ish manner. I am not saying that so that I can get people to insult me and send me more death threats than I have already received from you guys. I have also do not recall that I have been talking in a passive-agressive manner or with bad attitude, and I have absolutely NO idea where you got that idea from.
Furthermore, I do not get offended by insults directed towards me, so please continue if that is what you like doing here. In this thread, I ESPECIALLY DID NOT get offended by generallucas’ “idiot” comment, because you just don’t listen to name calling. When it comes to name calling, it’s like the person who called you names is just scrambling for things to say to bring you down and that’s actually sad that this bullyish behaviour is promoted here.
Everyone should just have a nice day, free from GG. Is that too much to ask?
No, because there are no specifically “Anti-GG websites” as far as I can recall and I do not want to actively seek them out. This is meant to be a neutral ground, and if an Anti-GGer replied to this thread, I’d also try to get them to just STOP. They’re not helping anything and neither are Pro-GGers.
Now, I wasn’t aware I was arguing here. Essentially, I’m just calling for both sides to stop, full stop. Yep, there’s no real reason behind it, other than just “STOP PLEASE”. Pro/Anti-GGers are free to not listen to my cries of anguish telling them to stop, and that’s okay. Stick to what you truly believe in.
Most of the comments I made here could’ve been much longer, but there’s a 1500 character limit… and in fact, what if I told you some (if not most) of my earlier sentences on this thread are clearly jokes, and I just made up stuff to lengthen out the comment, and have a cheap laugh at the responses to them? Clearly, GG cannot be behind terrorism and disease as per the top post, although it’s certainly headed that way.
With this new information, It’s still not “bait” or a shitpost, because I actually do seriously believe everyone here needs to stop everything GG-related, like right now. Stop, by the way.
Well, after I finish a beta for any of my games, I hop on a group chat, a garry’s mod or tf2 server, social network or forum and say “Hey guys, check out my new project or don’t. It’s about so-and-so, and it’s a [genre]. Here’s a trailer. Lemme know if you like it or not. Now, I’m off to make something new.”
5 out of the 20-or-so people there would then say something like “okay i’m watching the trailer, looks good” and then not mention it again, until I specifically ask them how the project is and they’d say they told a friend, and after a couple of days the trailer would reach 300 views and then I would set the trailer to private because I want to stay underground for now.
When telling everyone about a game I didn’t make, I straight up tell the above listed people “wow check this game out! it’s gud. we should play the multiplayer sometime” and most of them would all buy it. I see no problem.
Here we go with the Reaction Image-posting again. You clearly don’t care about my feelings. I specifically hinted that I wanted no .gifs directed towards me in the 1st post of this thread and you are not even giving me that.
Now, your first post here asked what was on my ear. I remember that Dole and DelMonte sell banana-related products, and a banana is phallic-shaped, so are you calling me a “dickhead”? A strange conclusion, I know, but that’s all I could gather from your cryptic message.
I asked if you were doxxing me in a jokish manner, because you knew two brands I was familiar with, and that you were trying to get confirmation that you figured out my background, and doxxing sounds like something a GGer would do, so essentially that part of my 1st reply to you was a joke and I am also laughing. Ha ha.
I am not trying to shitpost here and I do not get butthurt over anything. It’s really is just a waste of time to be upset over things 24/7, so stop with the assumptions.
Yep, call me dead inside, but nothing really bothers me. Not even watching people close to me die, which I’ve seen a lot of. I’m literally neutral on nearly everything. I will listen to any song from any genre, artist, or year. Similarly, I’d play any videogame from any genre, developer, or year. Yes, even that one. Well, good day to you.
What are indie devs so afraid of that their projects will get blacklisted? With all the millions of indie devs out there, of course someone will get liked more, because nobody has to time to carefully examine each developer individually.
Careers in shambles? Are you guys implying most indie devs are just in it for money? …Well, of course, developers need to eat and have a roof over their heads, but still, if an indie’s game is good… well, it’s good, and no amount of blacklisting will prevent the greatness of the game from breaking through and everybody in the world won’t just suddenly ignore the game just because it’s on some dumb, imaginary “blacklist”.
Art and its mediums can also never be willfully steered in any direction. That’s not how art works.
…Wha-? Okay, I think some of the issues that GG exists to address do matter, but GG is not the way to go.
I’m “throwing shit”? Clearly, you can see that I have not gone any further in than say “stop” to you guys, but now in this thread, I have been called an “idiot”, a “shitposter”, someone who “cares heavily about downvotes” (which I don’t) and I deserve every horrible thing that comes my way. Well, probably not that last one. I am not GG-levels of paranoid.
This kind of negative mob mentality is not on and really says a lot about GG and its obsessive cult-like followers. So, THANKS for showing me that you are not an accepting group, guys. Spot on. Good job.
Addressing the indie scene dillema now, and what the flying fuck is this “blacklist”? Is it some easily accessible document that all gaming sites look at saying “oh no pls don’t post an article about that guy’s indie game k thnx”? Is it a metaphorical list? Games usually get more popular through word-of-mouth than through mass media.
Also, what’s wrong with a reward show giving awards to what you consider to be bad games? At least you enjoyed the “good games” and that’s all that matters. The only time that you should care about what award goes where is when you are one of the nominees, and AFAIK, nobody here can claim to have been a nominee on a game reward show.
P.S. You’re making a game? Tell me more. I’m curious. I’m not a monster and I’m not being sarcastic.
My apologies if I come across as a bully, because I do not like bullies. Being a bully is something I am not.
Also, as much as I’d like to, I simply cannot deny that my constant asking of gamergaters to “stop” could be interpreted as shunning. Denying that would just be lying, and lying is very bad. Y’all should know that. You’re all here trying to uncover the “lies” you’ve been fed, right? Right… or “wrong”, if that’s what you were about to say.
I’m not here to speak for you. You are an individual and you have your own family, friends & interests, and you may do as you please and we are all just one person out of billions alive today. It just blows my clearly “simple mind” (actual words from a GGer) that text on the internet was written by human beings with actual emotions.
That kinda went off-topic there, so now to your comment. How are you guys handling things in a civil manner? GGers keep saying they’re doing stuff, and then it’s just someone tweeting their support of GG or documents proving more bad stuff or long rants about why GG is a good cause. Great for morale, but is anything actually happening? Review sites admitting their mistakes in hiring influenced writers? They have? Well, jolly good. That’s it, show’s over. Pack it up.
Heh, I wish. Now… can someone tell me how many more years until GG is actually over? No? Welp, have fun with that, back to the important fight with you then! Don’t let me stop you… or do. It’s your choice.
As a Filpino-British Australian, I only recognize “DelMonte” and “Dole”, but I do not recognize this reference you’re making.
Is it from some sort of advertisement? Are you trying to doxx me?
Ah, one of the ringleaders. I remember you from the IRC channel that y’all ruthlessly banned me from months ago. I was just posting incest clopfics. I thought GGers wanted bronies on their side. Enough about that though, this isn’t about that.
Now… why is “not getting disclosure on influenced reviews” even a problem? If it never leaked that those reviews were influenced by the writers participating in bad ethics, y’all wouldn’t be here on this page reading this sentence. We’d all just be living our happy-go-lucky gamergate-free lives.
But still, that information did get out, and those reviewers did do bad things. Nobody’s arguing that. Still, there is NO problem here. Is the problem that those reviewers got PAID for doing bad things? Well, that’s easy to fix. Just fire those reviewers and teach the new ones proper ethics. No problem.
Is the problem that influenced reviews made people buy the wrong games? Well, tough. You shouldn’t rely on the media to provide your opinion. You decide the quality of a game through playing it yourself and not by reading reviews to form a decision.
There is still no problem… Ah, I get it! The problem is the feminists and SJWs and censorship on places that claim they allow “free speech”! That is the problem that GG must be “fighting”! Surely it is! Man, SJWs really get y’all riled up, huh? I hate them too. Look at them on their anti-good tumblrs a- *closes tab* Huh? Where did they go? :O
Out? Of Gamergate?
I sure hope so, because that’d help me sleep at night.
Yes, I’m A-OK. I’m not “angry” with Gamergate, per se, I’m just… neutrally sad that it got this far, when it didn’t need to.
It’d be much better if it just stopped being a thing and everyone involved in it just disbanded and carried on with a happier life, me thinks.
Well, you could still have your gamergate friends, but just don’t center the entire friendship around anything gamergate.
I know this is a memesite, but you can’t just use memes willy-nilly to muddy up the issue at hand. This is serious.
Getting offended at text… on the internet? That’s like, my least favourite thing to do.
Listen here, I just want to play my violent, sexy video games in peace
Enough with the death threats from gamergaters directed towards NORMAL people like me
Enough of the “OMG SO-CALLED GAME JOURNALISTS ARE HAVING SEX… WITHOUT ME! MUH ETHICS!” from gamergaters
Enough of gamergaters wasting their life away downvoting those that don’t share their opinion. That’s not what the downvote button is for. Life is short.
You could be playing with electronics, reading books, watching TV/movies, caring for the environment, having a relationship, cooking, driving a car, holidaying, being funny, appreciating art, earning money, listening to music, sciencing in outerspace, and most importantly: ACTUALLY PLAYING GAMES
Instead, you have these gamergaters here on this page 24/7 collecting “evidence” to fight against… whatever’s “attacking” their le edgy anarchy rebel ways and for what? In their later life, I assure you gamergaters WILL frown upon the bad decision they made to spend months on something as trivial as gamergate.
Everything bad in this world (terrorism, disease, etc) all boils down to “gamergate” and it’s sickening and I hate it and it needs to just stop. Please.
Now this just my opinion though and you are free to have your own. I am not trying to be mean towards anyone here. I am not “trolling”. I do not need you to post your passive-agressive images/gifs at me. And you most certainly are NOT being oppressed by moderators, IRC or the forum
*braces for downvotes*
Nice Super Mario World gif. It really drives your point home.
On a completely unrelated note, I just got the idea into my head that I should play that game again.
Yes. This completely original idea to play the game Super Mario World was not inspired by gamergaters in any way because they cannot come up with any good or original ideas. I’m off to plug in my SNES.
Nope, I was clearly replying to Kung Fu Cthulu, although that message was directed to all gamergaters, because gamergaters do not have any semblance of a good person inside them and they just need to STOP. RIGHT NOW. STOP COMMENTING ON THIS ENTRY AND THE WORLD WILL BE A BETTER PLACE.
P.S. A$AP is a pretty cool dude.
