Did anyone check out Polygon's Top 500 Greatest Games Of All Times? They added Depression Quest in the list. That's not all. They also added Gone Home in the list too, and it's ranked higher than Chrono Trigger and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time!

What the fuck was Polygon thinking?! Did Zoe Quinn had some Five Guys Burgers And Fries at Polygon headquarters or something??

Gone Home arguably created the modern "Walking Simulator" genre, which should earn it a place on that list.

Depression Quest launched GamerGate, ruined the reputation of the far-left, made "SJW" a household slur, exposed their fuckery for all to see, pushed an entire generation of gamers to the right, and helped Donald Trump get elected President. It's one of the most influential games of all time.

you'd have a point here if it were a list of "the 500 most influential games of all time" but that's not what the list is, it's "the 500 BEST games of all time" and they rated Depression Quest higher than the original Ninja Gaiden, F-Zero, Star Fox 64, and the original Alone in the Dark!

oh but it gets worse. they rated Gone Home, the fucking WALKING SIMULATOR at 31 in a BEST GAMES OF ALL TIME LIST!

they rated it higher than Chrono Trigger, FF7, Goldeneye, Half-Life 1, Shadow of the Colossus, Smash Bros. Melee, the original Donkey Kong, Super Mario World and Street Fighter 2.

Let that sink in for a minute.

An idea sparked from a /v/ thread. OP name is pre-emptive as the plan isn't even formed, but the goal and idea is.

The thread OP:

ALL MOBILESHIT, ALL SOCIALSHIT, ALL PAY2WIN, ALL FREEMIUM, ALL LOOTBOXES, GONE FOREVER

This is a brilliant idea, 99% of the cancer infecting the medium has been bankrolled by racketeers pretending to be game developers, using armies of disinterested normalfags as a battering ram into every platform, funded off the slaughter of lobotomized whales. In addition, it could create a public furor against anything else that vaguely smacked of it, such as DLC, Greenlight vaporware, and $1 appstore shovelware.

If the flames of a good old fashioned moral panic could be fanned up, especially in today's political environment, games might be saved in one fell swoop.

>Let's all be honest here, microtransactions, lootboxes, and keys are all super scummy and also skirt the line of being actual gambling by hanging on the very edge.

>And judging by the slot machine style of how these cases usually are… I think there is something that can be said about them literally skirting these laws by inches. This isn't the only video like this, there are literally thousands like this and you can actually see these people get so hyped up during the rolling of the meter… it's literally the same look a person has going to a actual slot machine.

>Frankly, I think it is quite obvious that regulations against these type of things is going to happen really damn soon once any form of attention is thrown at them from any form of political body.

>So, how do we get the attention to finally end this blight upon gaming?

Telling the monster he's doing wrong won't help. Starving him works better.

Imagine if everyone who made memes and jokes about EA did the same about people who bought Lootcrates? That they were children who were so poorly skilled and had such a tantrum when they lost- they'd play to win. I bet lootboxes would dry up in a month.

Or if you're playing one of these games (christ knows why) and you've clearly been hammered by someone who bought something, just put in the chat:

> [Player] pays to win.

That's all you need to say, and once. Because you've undermined their victories without using harsh language or insulting any other elements about his character. Just the fact that he wins because he pays- not because he's good. He'll taunt you and insult you and try to get you to argue back. Don't. Just ignore him and carry on. Every message he posts in a temper tantrum makes other players see it and think "Christ- people who buy lootboxes are dickheads."

It's the same as SJW and Marxism. Why tell the politician he's doing something wrong? He knows he is- he's banking on it!

But when all his supporters are mocked, and they start having a tantrum, he has to distance himself or be dragged under.

Mock supporters of Lootboxes, they'll have tantrums (and a few bots will join in making them seem even less human and sane), so EA has to distance themselves.

Still doesn't deal with whales though. That might need full blown gambling laws, but as we've discussed, we need to be crystal clear on what we want, and not a single deviation in phrasing will do.

EA Loses $3 Billion in Stock Value after Battlefront 2 Debacle

>EA is feeling the burn after the gaming community as a whole rebelled against the microtransaction model in Star Wars Battlefront 2. EA debuted an aggressive loot box system in Battlefront 2, a gashapon machine with shooter elements, which tied in-game progression to premium currency transactions that cost real money. Electronic Arts' stock is down 8.5 percent month-to-date, which equates to around $3.1 billion in losses.

The purpose of this thread:

Catalog all cases of anti-GG/SJW/"virtuous" companies/marxist pushers and those who talk down to us about being immoral who have skeletons in their closet. Main focus is aGG and game related companies.

With how sexual assault has been under more scrutiny, this could escalate until those really high up in important industries can get fucked.

If you fix corruption in gaming, it can happen in other industries by laying the ground work and have the general public more informed to not tolerate it in other fields. Not to mention more sexual assault can be reported as more progress is made.

There is a delicate balance with false accusations however.

Only post 1 accusation per post. If it turns out it is fake- then it makes it easier to delete

Vice Suspends Documentary Producer Jason Mojica For [Allegations Of] Sexual Misconduct

https://archive.is/3yniE

> No further comments or statements were produced by Vice regarding Mojica’s suspension, but it comes shortly after both Vice and their subsidiary Waypoint acknowledged the sexual misconduct claims that were said to be rife within the media company’s corporate culture.

> So what exactly did Mojica do? According to Barghouty he asked how flexible she was after asking if she signed the non-traditional non-disclosure agreement, something that Waypoint reproached Vice for using as a means of leverage against employees.

> One of the employees told the Daily Beast under anonymity – since she had signed the NDA and did not want to risk legal repercussions – that some management used the NDAs as pressure against the young female staff…

< “When older men, senior reporters, or managers would hook up with young female reporter after young female reporter, [my manager] would kind of a shrug and say, ‘Well, non-traditional workplace environment.’”

> The Daily Beast says that employees told them that the managing staff would use the NDA in a joking manner before doing something uncouth.

The "non-standard" NDA (according to OneAngryGamer) says:

> “Although it is possible that some of the text, images and information I will be exposed to the course of my employment with Vice may be considered by some to be offensive, indecent, violent or disturbing, I do not find such text, images or information or the workplace environment at Vice to be offensive, indecent, violent or disturbing.”

> Due to the nature of business and operations, including but not limited to its print and online publications, sexually provocative and other explicit images, videos and audio recordings are regularly present VICE's offices.

> Tariq Lacy, former PR manager and marketing staff at Area 35, is now claiming game director Hiroaki Yura embezzled that money and used it towards Area 35’s new game, Tiny Metal. Yura responded by accusing Lacy of sexual harassment during his time at the Tokyo-based company.

https://archive.is/mBTMi

There's not much info on either side. Tiny Metal was delayed a month after Tariq's claim.

Brandon claims Tariq used to work at Gumi, and Nintendo HQ in WA state before that.

If Tariq's claim is false, he could be doing this to get attention for his next project, job, or attention in general (going off other SJW- if he's a male feminist sex-pest- it is in character).

It is possible both parties can be lying, both telling the truth, or one is telling the truth and the other is lying.

It's the Third Birthday!

Today is August 28th, which is the day that this and the previous GG boards have traditionally celebrated the birthday of #GG. August 27th was the day Adam Baldwin first coined the hashtag itself, but it was the following day that consensus was reached on /v/ to formally adopt the tag and take up the #GG mantle to spread word of our cause.

What was a Twitter tag created to point attention at a scandal became a banner under which gamers and free speech advocates from all over the global Internet rallied to stick up for our hobby in the face of a hostile media and a nearly equally hostile world.

They said we wouldn't last a month. We did.

They said we wouldn't last through Christmas. We did.

They said we wouldn't last through Destiny. We laughed our asses off.

They said we wouldn't last a year. We did.

They said we wouldn't last two years. We did.

They said we were dead. Then we got the blame for electing Donald Trump!

It's been a hell of a ride. I never imagined, when I stepped into the Burgers and Fries threads on /v/ in 2014, that things would wind up like this. Multiple warfront, mainstream media getting involved, a civil war within #GG and winding up a board owner myself. That we'd be in an episode of Law and Order. Now today we have books being written about us, and hitpiece headlines are still coming out on a weekly basis.

We just wanted to play videogames!

As I'm sure you've noticed, the old board here is pretty dead. Between all the chaos of the big board war and attempted takeovers by the IRC faction, most of 8chan lost interest in the game. We still have a valuable purpose as a safe harbor, and as a repository and discussion board for the information still flowing in from all over the #GamerGate network. It's times like this, when carrying on is hard and takes actual work, that you learn who really cares about the cause, and who was just around for the drama higPost too long.

I ended up semi-ragequitting from the internet during the leadup to GG becoming a thing because if I didn't I was going to have a fucking nervous breakdown, because of that while GG was going on I was only semi-aware of it and never really knew what it was, I only saw the hashtag being thrown around by SJWs on Twitter and some forum threads that I avoided. I only really found out what it actually was when the whole thing blew over and I feel really regretful that I never got to take part in it and join the fight for them delicious e t h i c s

While GG Wiki is rebuilding, and after what happened with Tech Raptor (https://archive.is/AxZEs)- I think it's important we get our most crucial info saved to prevent being memory hole'd. And this might just help the wiki building guys to boot.

1. Find GG articles that cover GG honestly.

2. Archive them. Use more than just Archive.is (WaybackMachine, and a few others) (If they are videos on youtube, download them. Search for how, or shove "ss" in the front of the url. I.e. ssyoutube.com/blah)

3. Post them here (if you can. Some videos might be too big, look into video conversion).

4. Download the archive (we can't bank on Archive.is being up forever).

IMO priority order should be:

- Honest GG coverage (OneAngryGamer, NicheGamer, Mombot's work, etc).

- Study of SJW, and how to beat them/lessen their reach.

- Evidence of SJW doing what they do best.

- Evidence of Journalist lack of ethics, professionalism, and attacking their own demographic (this is done by DeepFreeze for gaming websites, hence it's so low- however major MSM should still be archived.)

The ESRB has been at the center of the censorship in vidya in recent years. Everyone scrambles for a T Rating, yet getting that rating is inconsistent. Not to mention the ESRB is charging an arm and a leg for it. Most stores refuse to sell anything without an ESRB rating, but small indies get away with it. If the ESRB got bigger, it could become mandatory (as in, all vidya media must have an ESRB rating- no matter how small the studio). The ESRB is almost there already, but after a few generations, you could have the ESRB refusing to classify some titles for being crass and inappropriate for all. And who should decide what is inappropriate for all in the future?

Goal

Either we drag the ESRB's reputation through the mud (too expensive, doesn't do it's job properly, is outdated as a guide to parents and consumers, does not assist the industry in a process that is almost needed), or they change their ways and/or costs.

Big companies would want the ESRB cheaper (but probably want to keep it around so the Mature label can be used in advertising), smaller companies would want the ESRB cheaper, and the (good) consumers would want the ESRB to have less power. Those who want to use the ESRB as a deterrent for "problematic" games get shafted when it loses it's teeth, and bad parents have to admit they never did the research in an age of youtube instead of blaming devs.

Methodology

Basic spreading & digging.

No major/decent dev is gonna reject the ESRB until it's reputation is reduced, and any backlash is minimal. So, under a new hashtag (ESRBusted) we showcase the worst of the ESRB:

- Expense.

- Anti-Developer practices.

- Inconsistent Ratings (as well as possible signs of bias- against Japanese games or "problematic" themes, etc).

ESRB Rating Cost for Indies is Too Damn High

twitter.com/JessConditt/status/930123611062464512

https://archive.is/U7LJY

https://archive.is/a4pYJ

> In September, the board announced a new tier for rating digital-to-physical games, allowing any title with a development budget of $1 million or less to be rated as a boxed product for $3,000, rather than the standard submission price of more than $10,000. With this change, all three console manufacturers made it a requirement for every game to pay this fee and carry an ESRB rating – even physical launches of digital titles.

> "Obtaining ESRB assigned age and content ratings has always been voluntary," an ESRB spokesperson tells Engadget. "That said, many US retailers, including most major chains, have policies to only stock or sell games that carry an ESRB rating, and console manufacturers have typically required games that are published on their systems to be rated by ESRB."

> In this case, "voluntary" is a complicated term. Developers aren't legally required to slap an ESRB rating on their games, but without one, they're shut out of the mainstream marketplace.

> "There's no nice way to put it; they basically have a monopoly," Douglas Bogart, co-founder of Limited Run Games, says about the ESRB. "There's no one above them. You have to follow their rules. Your business basically lives or dies by their whim, which is really scary, in my opinion."

> The new mandate is a hurdle for Limited Run, which attempts to cover production fees for all of the indie games they box up, taking a portion of the profits afterward. Since Limited Run sells the physical editions through their own storefront, they've historically not needed to secure additional ESRB ratings or pay any fees. Now, Limited Run and the developers they work with are required to pay at least $3,000 to the ESRB if they want to get physical.

> Limited Run co-founder Josh Fairhurst adds, "The physical release that we're putting out could be the difference between them living another day as game developers or closing up shop and going back to something else. I think that what we're doing in terms of making them money is really important."

And then there's the necessary Long Form rating process itself, which can add months to a boxed edition's release schedule.

> "It takes considerably longer now to get a game through the entire process to market, and it also hurts the developer on how much money they're getting," Bogart says. "It's delayed a lot of our stuff, which, as a business, hurts."

Starting up a game's studio with no saftey-net is dumb. But, indies shouldn't be raked over the coals as hard as this. How can you justify £3000 to see if a game is appropriate for kids or not, when a 30 min conversation with an honest dev would suffice?

The TPP is coming people

This deal has been in the shadows for months, but we have one clean shot to kill it for good. The Bill does have a 60-public reading period where criticisms have a chance to flourish against the bill. Our mission:

WE MUST OVERREACT IMMEDIATELY

We've only scrapped the surface of how much of our shit this can kill (online downloads, mods, chans, doujiins, cosplay,…list goes on) on top of corporations being able to sue governments more liberally. This is SOPA and PIPA back and worse than it's ever been.

Fight the good fight, email your senators, post on social media, trend a hashtag, don't let a single politcian think they can keep their chair touching this

They claim no dates are confirmed and they need to re-draft the text- but you know how sneaky these bastards are.

Everything from before still applies.

Hiding draconic punishment by banning whole families from using the internet under pretext of copyright law in the deal.

Making ISPs capable of more monitoring than the NSA is in the deal.

Ignoring environmental and worker laws as they see fit is in the deal.

A nation's own laws mean nothing, and TPP overriding them is still in the deal.

Them making every attempt to keep it out of the public eye as much as possible is still in the deal.

Them making the document itself as hard to get a complete copy of is still in the deal.

Them keeping the document secret for YEARS after it has passed is still in the deal.

Because the TPP has never been about trade, and all of the above is the true goal.

Much of the redpilling material from last-time still applies (albeit, they're gonna carry on without the US). But we do have new tools:

- Trump is antiTPP. Even if he does nothing, his fan base might whip it up since he hates it.

- With all the Hollywood rape charges going around, trying to make sure they get every cent out of people for looking up even clips of their movies isn't gonna sit well. Get the Pedowood crowd in on it.

- Tagjacking is an option. FUCK playing nice- find a hashtag that's popular, and tag it onto the end of your TPP based tweet.

In Theory

It could help clean up a decent chunk of a gaming community, by getting rid of a large group looking to get a free ride off beta males, and subvert the community. That gets a few more people on GG's side as we try to make services and the like about games for gamers.

The admins follow the camwhores- so we've got more soyboys and potential "male allies" who are bound to get pissed their spank-bank got shut down. Yet, complaining about it would make them look bad, and get more eyes on the camwhores, proving Twitch can't do shit, and isn't advertiser friendly.

Twitch is also owned by Youtube/Google IIRC. So you're taking money out of their pocket.

Finally, Twitch banned "problematic" games in the past (not even porn games), and having a pseudo-monopoly on streaming isn't good for anyone.

In Practice

"GamerGate chases off Camwhores women off Twitch!" writes itself. We should never not do something out of fear of backlash (they'll pin fake shit to us, so why not)- but if it's not an essential target, we could drop it for more important things. Of course, each individual can do whatever Ops they see fit.

If you approve- find people who sponsor or advertise through Twitch- and let them know the admins are fine with nip-slips and softcore porn as long as they can see it as well.

I hardly ever go to Twitch but holy shit! I browsed through the live list and easily found some cam whores.

Yes, you're right. Amazon sniped them at the last second:

Not that Amazon is without sin.

>Amazon tracking data being sold IIRC, or some shit like that

> The CEO being pro Hillary IIRC

> And an advert where a christian/catholic priest and an muslim imam chat & have a laugh like all imams are kind and sweet.

To be honest, it could be owned by a blank slate- fucking up the worst of the website is nice as a show of power, plus forces SJW to rush to the defense of actual whores going against the sites TOS.

Twitch isn't being ethical.

Fair analysis from an anon in a GG thread:

> I'm sorry, but I can't see what this is going to achieve beyond inconveniencing a couple of camwhores and feeding the general "Get the lewds off the internet" institutional zeitgeist.

> This is a bad op. Not because it might give us bad PR, but because it doesn't actually help us in any conceivable way.

> We don't want to feed the "advertiser friendly" lobby more than actually necessary.

Fellow anons, I am arguing with a dude who, despite seeing all this faggotry https://twitter.com/sarahbuttnaked/status/551229091459125248?lang=en isn't convinced Laurelai and Dan Olson tried to honeypot 8chan and get it taken down for CP. He thinks screencaps might be fake, or that Laurelai citing Olson on her wiki isn't enough evidence they knew each other.

So if anybody can deliver: I need some more proof, preferably archives since they can't be shopped, or anything that shows correspondence between Olson and Bailey.

>all these people blaming trump on gamergate in articles everywhere

GET FUCKING READY

Gamergate autocompletes again on twitter, which means that the very second trump or any of his very close advisors starts even MENTIONING us, you have be ready as shit

IF IT HAPPENS YOU HAVE TO MAKE GAMERGATE TREND AGAIN WITH VIDEOS, GRAPHICS AND SCREENCAPS TO TEACH EVERYONE WHAT IT IS ABOUT, JUST LIKE THE GOOD OL' DAYS

>Get your GG folder ready anon, you will possibly need it VERY soon

The purpose of this thread is to gather and plan ahead the very high possibility that Gamergate becomes an actual, heavy, present matter in the soon-to-be American government, and to ensure it doesn't get turned into another loud and ridiculous shouting match.

Collections of facts, screencaps, graphics, videos, etc. are necessary for easy and quick sharing. Statistics about political affiliations of the GG population, wikis, history articles, anti-gamergate exactions, etc. will always be useful.

The point isn't "PR". The media is at an all-time low in terms of trust from the general population, which implies people will seek information and knowledge from social media first and foremost; spreading gamergate's victories, goals and supports will ensure we get fresh blood, sure, but also that it isn't driven away from its actual purpose.

For example, here's a list of important outlets which have openly supported Gamergate :

- Wikileaks

- the SPJ

- the FTC…

A list of developers :

- Mark Kern

- Ethan James Petty (not officially I believe, touchy then, but eh)

- Gilles Matouba

- Huniedev

- Denis Dyack…
