No, Zoe Quinn’s Sexual Affairs Aren’t a “Private Matter”

The gaming media this week has been rocked by a lengthy blog post from Eron Gjoni, the ex-boyfriend of games developer Zoe Quinn. In summary: it appears that Quinn cheated on Gjoni with several other men. Normally, this thing can be dismissed as a private matter. But a closer investigation reveals that this is something that is most definitely in the public interest.

The fact that she had sexual encounters with journalists to further her career does make it a public matter.

all this censoring is just making it worse. I didn't much care about this but seeing any discussion about it dealing with it being deleted. makes it look like there is something to hide.

Yea I didn't care about this either.I mean its not really a shocker to me how little integrity /mountaindew/ gaming /doritos/ journalism has.But I am more concerned with how she manipulated people through social media while doing the same thing to a group of people, what she claimed they where doing to her.The people who just blindly supported that mess needs to re-evaluate and look in the mirror.... this news should be way hotter..

I have to agree. But I wonder why articles aren't being made about the journalist that traded their ethicasy for some sex. I know they've been called out, but you'd be hard pressed to find someone who knows who they are. I personally believe they need to be held accountable for their actions too. Maybe not fired, but at least so people can know if their opinions should be scrutinized a bit more.

pinkyxyz1494d ago

I think people are focusing on her actions so much is because of the massive media blackout about the situation. Especially when their are articles that prove it was at HER request. That's just wrong and unethical.

Is there a problem with game journalism? yes absolutely we see it all the time with BS reviews among other things. Is this instance of a woman cheating on her boyfriend with someone who wrote a couple articles about her game before she ever had sex with him relevant? Not at all and the people who think it is should be ashamed.

Also yeah there might be some censoring going on but what part about this should be public? A woman cheated on her bf and with a married man, articles were written about her game BEFORE she slept with the writer who did it are we now going to believe this chick made a deal with this guy to write these articles and to give her some praise and whatever and that for doing so she would sleep with him afterwords? Sounds so reasonable lol

All this should be private, except for the fact that we now know this chick in gaming who is supposed to be all moral and fighting the good fight for women is a complete liar and a slut for sleeping with a married man. It should all end there, no need for these dumb conspiracy theory crazy's to start making youtube vids trying to connect dots that dont even connect and make large leaps and assumptions based on no proof whatsoever.

JeffGrubb1494d ago

Unless you can prove that's what happened, it's a private matter. You are speculating and have no evidence to support this claim.

* It's definitely a question of her character, integrity & Morals if anything.

Not even trying to be mean, but I wouldn't risk ruining my career in the Video Games industry for THAT.

Reading all the evidence and watching the vids.

I can honestly say she deserves every bit of the assault on her

DragonKnight1494d ago

No one deserves threats of physical harm or death threats. But I won't say that people insulting her for her infidelity and dishonesty are in the wrong.

dredgewalker1494d ago

If she's a masochist then I'd think she'd prefer to be physically abused....just kidding. I actually agree that death threats and any sort of physical harm are just plain wrong. She hasn't done anything so bad that she should warrant such violent reactions. I am simply disgusted at her.

vids ?
for science reasons

sorry godmars290 beat me to it.

also this

henr0s1494d ago

Why are most news sites and forums trying to bury this? This isn't about her sex life, it's about the state of the industry.

Why o why1494d ago (Edited 1494d ago )

Honestly..... Did we need this to show bias/corruption exists within the industry

From duffle bags, to polygon.....trips to japan, to western preference. Edge uk developer bias, to dan shu.....the list goes on. This is just another incident

001494d ago

I think this is a clear tipping point, with the other stuff u can brush it off as angry fanboys and not make it a big deal. this on the other hand is showing clear corruption of favors for positive press/marketing, and with everything being deleted regarding this it looks like a lot of people have something to hide.

DOMination-1494d ago

Lol You think Edge are corrupt? Because they had a different opinion to you? Boo hoo they gave some crap ps3 games low scores but you conveniently forget three years in a row where they give lbp, UC2 and Demons Souls goty.

Seriously get over it man they aren't biased just harsh. They gave my beloved mass effect a 7 but I don't make up conspiracy theories.

Why o why1493d ago (Edited 1493d ago )

Edge uk developer bias

I said nothing about the ps3

Learn to read whats there and not what you imagine

Edge gives uk developers preferential reviews. Just check out some of the scores for games developed by uk devs..... edges scores are usually below the average but check out the review scores for any codemasters title for example. What im saying is irrespective of platform, on average, they're just less harsh towards uk developers ......apology accepted

Doge1494d ago

The whole industry has some really messed up people.

NattyGraham1494d ago

Thanks n4g. Losing respect to all the whiteknights websites and forums trying to bury this and not letting people talk about it.
