All Your Game Are Belong To Us

Steve Whitley looks at the growing trend of attacking developers and Publishers online to express their opinions. (BioWare, Culture, Dev, Fez 2, Industry, Mass Effect 3, PC, Phil Fish, PS3, Xbox 360)

It might just be me but does anyone's brain hurt when they read the title?

OT: It is different from other eras of gaming because of the growth of the internet and anonymity. People are still learning that death threats are not acceptable and you could get into serious trouble even if you do it under a username (not sure why they have only just realised that they could get caught. It show people are stupid)

"Developers like Fish are part of the solution not part of the problem"

That is not wholly true. There are some developers out there who makes great games (also get flak by the community) but they ignore it and get on with it. Some even stay away from social media sites and are more reclusive because they like to make games.

Fish is different. Sure he is talented but he also has shown little respect to the community. Respect is something you earn and not something you are instantly entitled to. He earned respect for making games but instantly lost it when reporters were messaging him about certain industry issues/wanted to know his take on it. His attitude is just wrong and instantly makes him unlikable. It is all about taking the higher ground which he refuses to do. In my eyes that puts him down with the angry mob (in terms of my respect) he hates so much

Thank you for the comments. The internet is certainly in its infancy in terms of law governing which kind of defeats what the internet was created for.

You do make some other great points and I hope that further comments will be as mature and balanced as yours.
