Forbes: On June 30, games journalist Ryan Perez got drunk and pulled up his one-month old Twitter account. He tweeted, “Does Felicia Day matter at all? I mean does she contribute anything useful to the industry, besides retaining a geek persona?”
If this isn’t a lesson against the dangers of drinking and tweeting, I don’t know what is. Actress Day has been contributing to the gaming world–and a champion of creator-owned content–ever since she wrote, directed, and starred in her extremely successful web series, The Guild, about MMO gamers, in 2007. That revitalized her acting career, which now includes roles as a voice-over actress for videogames, as well as guest roles in geek favorites Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog, Dollhouse, and Eureka. She has also created her own YouTube Channel, Geek & Sundry, discussing, among other things, videogames.
