A look at the current internet controversy surrounding a single female game developer.
People are still talking about this?
People should be talking about this still. This is a major issue that affects the gaming industry as a whole.
@johndoe, You are correct in that these articles obviously need to continue for a while longer. All one need do is look at the number of persons in this thread that were unfamiliar with her actions and it indicates further dispersal of the truth is required. They need to be informed so they do not, in the future and by lack of knowledge, support any of her efforts. If she wants to be a whore then she doesn't get to be a pretend whore. She needs to be cut off from the gaming industry to the point she is forced to become a legitimate version of the person she has clearly shown herself to be.
I don't think calling her a whore is fair, and I think it makes it seem like your focusing on the right issue here. This is meant to be about corruption in gaming journalism, the lengths publications will go to cover up the allegations (with evidence I might add). How quick journalists were to jump on the "GAMERS ARE HORRIBLE, THEY'RE MISOGYNISTS" instead at looking at the issue from both sides.
I meant wrong issue, whoops. Insulting her doesn't get a point across, it just makes you sound nasty.

Example: * If Person A, punches women in face in front of a group of men, he will get his Butt Whooped. He would still be a Victim of a beating, but said beating would have been the reaction to his cause. Cause & Effect. * She wouldn't have people saying bad things about here, if she didn't go do those things. * Example: Kim Kardashian doesn't want to be looked at as a whore, yet she got famous by putting out a sex tape, and then having her mother pimp out said sex tape. * EX: If Derek Jeter today starts saying how much he HATES the Yankees, while still playing for them, He will get booed at home games, even though he is Derek Jeter. It could have been an effect of what he did.
She's both. The thing is she's a victim due to her villainy. In other words, she is reaping what she sowed.
Couldn't put it better myself.
Would ask if an apparent pathological liar can be a victim, but then, the Boy Who Cried Wolf.
I don't think she read that story :.(
she doxxed a charity and took them down because she wanted the money, she is a terrible human being.
To think that the whole think started because TheFineYoungCapitalist had a open policy about transexuals, yet Zoe didn't like, as a good feminist she thinks that transexuals are evil.
All i know that she is a whore.
This right here is the reason why people won't see what a horrible, manipulative, truly "bad" person Zoe Quinn is. There are still a vast majority of people who believe promiscuity is a bad thing that makes people bad people. Zoe Quinn is not an issue because she cheated on her boyfriend. What went on in the confines of Zoe's relationship is between her and the guy who started this whole thing. The fact that she used sex to further the agendas of herself and her various sexual partners is the problem.
...And that the 'recipients' appear to have given her favourable terms. I couldn't care less either way if she slept around for favours - the indication that people who get paid to give impartial, honest, reviews / news were apparently swayed by this is what really shows how corrupt the industry is (as if we needed reminding).
and a scary looking one at that.
I find it hard to call anyone who cheated on their boyfriend/girlfriend multiple times with multiple people a victim.
So what exactly did this girl do? Slept with 5 guys to get good reviews? What else am i missing... i'm hearing so many different things...
She used her connections in the gaming media to get The Fine Young Capitalists game jam doxxed and shutdown. That prevented a good amount of potential game developers from helping make and contribute to the growth of game culture. The simple question is this: do you support people who help bring you more games or people who prevent you from having more games to play?
Oh wow... Thats terrible. & not the latter.
She's a villainess. Her actions wrought any counter measures that could be considered to make her a victim. She shut down a charity event. A FRICKIN' CHARITY EVENT! This girls's video has an opening that is so perfectly descriptive of Zoe Quinn it's astonishing and hilarious. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I had no idea who Zoe was, however I have heard of Depression Quest. The game didn't interest me so I never paid any attention to these Zoe articles. I mean, it's free to play on Steam so I don't get the fuss. It's not as though she's making money with it. *shrug*
She does make money with it, its through sponsorship, and it still is sold on other site.
Oh, ok. Thanks for the heads up.
Not to mention she's making more than a large amount of full-time employees make through her Patreon because of this game and the promise of future ones. http://www.patreon.com/zoe
If you've asked that question then your only seeking attention & clicks. The answer is a straight forward obvious one with no need for questioning. It's simple common sense!
Why are we giving her attention? She clearly gets off of it.
A victim of her own foolish choices.
These comments... what in the hell...
What I find the most disgusting about this whole ordeal is the fact that she isn't held accountable and that people actually defend her. You know dam well if she was born with male reproductive organs instead of female she'd be burned at the steak in a heart beat and anita sarkeesian and her ilk would be screaming misogynist from the roof tops on a daily basis. Funny how anita spews about equality and respect in the gaming scene yet we've yet to hear a single peep from her on this subject. Sexist hypocrite.
Holy crap, I didn't know about that blog. I feel for that guy so badly, I've had the exact same thing happen to me, it is the worst feeling in the world and will literally make you never trust another human being again in your life when someone you truly love, someone you give yourself to completely, betrays you and not only that you find out they were not even who they made you believe they were. Some people are unbelievably vicious for absolutely no reason at all and just totally sadistic when it comes to lying. Then this girl says crazy things as if she is the savior of gaming equality? So she screws her way to the top, yea that isn't completely contradictory. Are you kidding me? "what is she goes public" "cause games as a whole can lose one of it's only strong voices for equality because a woman's sexuality at all being public can sink that ship" No you slept with your damn boss when he was married all while you had a boyfriend and you think that is just about your sexuality being public? Damn the way she tries to manipulate people is sickening, it's about people needing to know what a twisted individual she really is. She is crazy as hell, this is beyond hypocritical. I had no idea about this honestly cause I never payed much attention to her but I figured I would see what all the fuss was about, happened to check that blog, what a terrible person she is. I was just aw struck at all the screwed up things she did to that poor guy. Oh man I can't even read all the blog, made it halfway through but it isn't that it's poorly written or long for me, it is just the fact it gets worse and worse the more you read. Just a disgusting freaking whore of a woman she is. It gets to a point where she cheated on him with so many people she couldn't even remember them all... She seriously has to say to herself.. "I think that's everyone." I truly hope this all ruins her for the rest of her life, people like this don't deserve a decent life. People like that seriously deserve the worst things imaginable to happen to them fucking with peoples emotions like this. Oh god the part where she had sex with a guy the night before she meets up with her boyfriend and he kissed her only to find out later.. Yea you do the math, just gross. Astonishing people can be so cruel. The worst part about all of this, if this were a man who did this.... Good god the shit he would get for it but no since it's a woman, let's all give her a free pass, feel sorry for her and a try harder next time pat on the back. I cannot believe anyone is even defending this shit, as I said if it were a man they would have castrated him alive.
