EGMR writes: "2014 has been an especially turbulent year. It started off rather benign. Much like the release schedule. Titanfall came and went without much of a stir. Watch_Dogs kicked up a storm for various reasons and not long after that Ubisoft managed to get themselves in trouble again for their insistence on using white male protagonists. This is the entry point to a very tenuous thread that has brought us to the current state of gaming. Things then went a little quiet in July before Gamescom, the Quinnspiracy, #GamerGate, #NotYourShield all reared their heads. Serve with a side order of Sarkeesian and Ferguson for chaos that the whole family can enjoy."
