User Warned: Vilifying Journalism
At this point it just seems like neither side really wants any sort of conversation and just wants to keep arguments/fan the flames to feel vindicated for their side being correct on a matter.I'm not saying you can't be angry or upset about the issues, but if antagonistic is the default tone then expect war or silence. People are either gonna not participate in the discussion or they are going to be antagonistic back to you. In the age of the internet politics have become a fight instead of a discussion where you with for me or against me. This doesn't lead to discussion it doesn't lead to changing hearts and minds either. But that's just my opinion.
People like to shout "tone policing" when statements when people feel this way but the only thing constant aggression and name-calling helps is increasing the echo chamber. If anything we should be better than trolls. In my opinion.
And for video games, the most trivial thing in the grand scheme of things in the world to be running around screaming about.
Speaking for myself, being detached from all of this gaming/nerd culture and all the discussions on it’s importance such as gamez iz art guys!! Or how outraged you should be over the new She-Ra or Buffy’s reboot (that totally isn’t Whedon’s desperate attempt to get in people’s good graces again) has been a mental benefit. It’s not to say games can’t do better but Jesus has this conversation on culture been beaten to death. But I guess whatever makes the games press still feel relevant.
