OnlySP writes "I don’t know Marcus Beer or Phil Fish. I won’t comment either way on who behaved how – that coop has long flown. Assigning blame is a pointless and inflammatory waste of time. And besides, I don’t particularly care.
I do care about the way it has portrayed game creators and game critics, though. Deeply. Because that perception directly affects me and my work here.
The loose association of writers collectively referred to the “games media” has issues. Critics, reviewers, journalists, commenters – whatever branch of the written conversation we hail from – sometimes forget our place. And it’s not a “gamer” issue; it’s a human being issue."
