    This is some seriously crazy nonsense. What's wrong with you? If a bank was robbed at gunpoint, would you argue that the money was a gift (because the teller couldn't be sure that they'd be shot if...

    Because it's easier to excuse a teenaged fuckwit. Boys and men are probably equally likely to reinforce gender behaviour that harms them (and others!), but it's harder for us to see an adult's...

    Hilariously, they won't start filming until they reach $15000 per month. . . I can only assume that the $2700 per month they're getting now are being spent on honest, non-scammy purposes. (If Patreon...

    You misrepresent me. Yes, different people talk about Sarkeesian in different ways, and criticise her for different things from different viewpoints. However, the discussion in this thread, which is...

    I see them not as linked, but as the same thing--attacking Sarkeesian, making discussion of her personal, about scandal, is a way for conservative or reactionary viewpoints to discredit her. Shifting...

    I don't buy the argument that Sarkeesian is making it harder for other women to talk about their own experiences or their own takes on feminism at all. She draws attention (positive, negative, and...

    Advocacy is not inherently wrong, although I get the feeling that some people in this thread think so. And people don't read studies, but they do apparently watch youtube videos.

    But by framing...

    DetCord, you're demanding a lot more than a youtube video can reasonably deliver. Sarkeesian's videos are designed to describe a problematic trope, briefly inform the viewer about why it's...

    Well. . . yes, quite simply. I think Sarkeesian is hoping eventually to provide that extra set of eyes and make it easier for game developers to notice when they're unintentionally spreading a bad...

    When you make a work of art (or a piece of entertainment) I think it's likely you spend a lot of time thinking about it. Things like: "Why is the tank clipping through this bush? Is the gunplay...

    Yesssss. Right on the money. I'm not sure that it means games aren't art (as Gwathdring says, you can have an unintentional message and an intended message side by side in the same piece of art), but...

    Misnomer, you're not arguing the same point as everyone else. You want videogame stories to be allowed to include violence against women, and no-one is arguing that that's a problem. The problem is...

  14. Help me find games about the Ottoman Empire.

    I'm reading an interesting book on the Ottoman Empire (Hanioglu's A Brief History of the Ottoman Empire), and it got me in the mood to play something with the Ottomans in it. Cue Empire: Total War,...

    I've never heard of this sort of thing before, but my gut reaction is. . . How could one ever expect to turn a comment thread into content? Would it really be faster to sift through peoples' comments...

    Didn't mean to be directly involving that comment in your argument, really. I was more surprised to see that this project, that has so much bad press and that I personally have so little confidence...

    Areal still has $32000, more than half of its target, and three weeks to turn public opinion around. I think there's a good chance they'll make it. In many ways accusing the project of being a con is...

    People keep saying that. They have nine people listed on the team, there's kickstarter's fees, they presumably pay some kind of tax, they're going to have to contract out bugtesting if nothing else,...

    Good point. An exception to the way game narratives work that I had completely forgotten. I think you'd agree it's still an exception, however.

    I have absolutely no problem with multi-platform, as long as the PC version is functional and can be played with a mouse and keyboard. I think that's the least of the problems. Also, there are going...

    Areal promises the moon. And they only want $50000? I can't imagine it'll work out. On top of that, some kickstarter rewards include weapons and items that won't be in the game.

    I cherish the idea that that guy probably thought they were being sensitive. In my head he's scratching his head and asking "What do women do when they aren't being raped?"
