Looks up from Smash Bros. 3DS.
Yeaaaaah, I recently unfollowed every single videogame website/news source because the community is just that toxic. I'll know if something 'important' in gaming happens because regular news will report on it or my friends will tell me.
I like games, but I would never want anyone to associate me as "that guy who plays videogames." I like talking about how games can be fun, their design and things like that. But hell if I'm gonna be spoken in the same breath as people who threaten women on campuses, whether they're being 'serious' or not.
I've got other things to do, you know.
Edit of More Thoughts:
I also don't think discourse about gaming has reached a level that's good enough or interesting enough or impactful enough to be valid. The last thing I remember reading that made me go "this is good writing on videogames" was posted by cov. That was 99 days ago.
Anything that isn't that well written on gaming I consider a waste of time.
