One Angry Gamer is a video game news website that's mainly known for its coverage and opinionated takes on social issues within the video game industry, usually taking an anti-censorship and at times right-wing tone to its articles.
One Angry Gamer was founded by William Usher, also known by the nickname Billy D. The site garnered notoriety in 2014 due to its positive coverage of the Gamergate controversy.
One Angry Gamer is a blog and gaming news site that, according to the site Media Bias/Fact Check, is right-wing biased with mixed factual reporting. The site has taken an anti-censorship slant to a majority of their articles, with content that is seen as politically incorrect, and opposing left-leaning or progressive ideas and people. Stances held by the site include anti-LGBTQ+ and anti-feminist stances, apoliticism in games, and at times veering into more extreme right-wing rhetoric, with article comments especially egregious of slurs, racism, homophobia, and right-wing dogwhistling.
In 2019, the pro-Gamergate subreddit /r/Kotakuinaction temporarily removed One Angry Gamer from its whitelist due to its negative article about the Ratburn marriage episode of Arthur, though it was later reinstated. Prior to this, the site also caught notable flack for transphobic articles decrying the inclusion of indiscreet transgender flags in both Celeste and A Hat In Time.
Traitors of America List
On June 1st, 2020, the site started what it called its "Traitors of America" list in the wake of the death of George Floyd in May. Self-describing the list as "a number of individuals, companies, outlets, and media institutions [that] have stepped forward to announce that they support the groups enabling riots, violence, vandalism, theft, assault, and murder taking place at the hands of vandals and thugs across the United States of America", the list in actuality comprises of figures and companies who have spoken in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. The list, still continually updated, as of June 4th is composed of over 400 different people and companies, with notable names on the list including Scott the Woz, Joel Osteen, Nickelodeon, Pewdiepie, and the American branches of Nintendo and Capcom.
Users were quick to mock the list upon its publishing. The tweet announcing the list was ratio'd with over 2,000 replies in comparison to just 597 likes.
