Changes are drastically needed in gaming politics. Everything from transparency, integrity, and accountability in gaming journalism, or flagrant and abhorrent sexism and racism is a consistent issue across the board. The fact is the gaming industry has been changing exponentially over the last decade, leaving game industry politics in the dark ages with their lack of urgency for change.
We need change, we need a voice, and those attempting to lead aren’t cut out for the job. In comes #GamerGate: An attempt to show reviewers, developers, and publishers what gamers want from their gaming, without the veil of a non-gamer feminist. However, with a lack of direction, #GamerGate is quickly turning into a sideshow and random ranting session from all reasonable and unreasonable sides.
