    Gamergate?

    LOL

    I guess there is a war in the gaming community between old school (heterosexual male) gamers and female, transgender, and alternative sex players.

    WOW. Why can't games be games?

    You mean that the gamer community has it's petty controversies?

    That's an unusual crowd to see this happening in.

    Basically some chick wrote a video game about depression and what its like to be depressed. It got positive reviews and then her ex boyfriend accused her of sleeping with the reviewer. People played the game, thought it sucked, and began to see conspiracy. Then some feminist chick got involved and trolls from all over started posting stupid $#@! to each other.

    Now, its about social engineering and gaming and the original chick's best friend said she DID sleep with the reviewer and now reddit's talking about how game reviewers are mostly gay and helping to spread anti-heterosexual male sentiment.

    Gaming...lol

    I don't get involved in all that nonsense. I just play my games and that's that. Even on my MMOs, I tend to play solo as much as possible.
    "A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity."
    - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American social activist and First Lady of the United States

    When you're a girl trying to get into this community, subjects like these impose themselves upon you when you realize that most people in "your community" assume that you suck and want to be a supporting character and coddle you for sexual favors because members of your sex are that rare a sight in the community. That's right, there are implicit gender roles in online gaming communities that are much like the ones in the real world, and, just as in the real world, when you defy them, you get in trouble. That's because the overwhelming majority of game-makers are male and they basically make games for other men, replete with all manner of implicit prejudices against 'the others' that their consumers in turn adopt or learn to shut up about (because here's what happens when you try to talk about these things in a gaming web community). That's been my experience, and it's nothing new, folks. And it used to be worse back in the pre-Internet days when the industry was in more or less total control of the gaming world. It's kind of a First World problem (as yet anyway), but it's annoying nonetheless. That's kinda why I tend to prefer playing solo, in fact, or at least one of the reasons. Not so much judgment when you're by yourself.

    Every RPG game allows for female lead characters, female characters, etc. @IMPress Polly of the modern games which do you feel still don't allow for women?
