Sounds like you've not gotten the full story...

I thought Bowlers had rounded tops?


I was joking. hence the afterword prefaced with seriously. yeah bowlers have short upturned brims and round tops. I actually witnessed some hipster call one a Fedora though. At which point I figure a baseball cap can be a fedora.




So like basically is Indiana Jones hat the fedora.

Yes Indiana Jones and the Doctor with the stupid long scarf both wear fedoras. Stetson made mine. it actually says Indiana Jones TM on the label under the crown.

I would also again advise any who value their continued sanity to abandon the thread now. Only masochists and the insensible should continue for the flamewar is fast approaching and shall burn hot as hellfire.

Both sides are fighting a losing battle. I'll just be playing my games while they fight for all eternity.

This is one of the most baffling stories I've ever read about. Even if I give GG the benefit of the doubt and it really is about gaming journalism ethics, I still don't get it. Sports journalism has similar issues, yet there isn't an army of sports fans going after Adam Schefter and Adrian Wojnarowski like this.

GG was about serious issues on both sides of the argument, but it's long since been anywhere near anything useful. The people who legitimately cared about what they were talking about have moved on in a rational manner and are making/supporting the changes they want to see in the gaming world. At this point, though, if you're still beating the GG or anti-GG drum so loudly (unless in a position where you're basically forced to address it of course) then you just like the sound of your own voice screaming into a vacuum.

More ethical games journalism is a good thing. More diversity in gaming, both on side of both the player and the developer side is a good thing. It's not really that complicated.

I doubt it. It may sound bad, but in the long run it might do a lot of good for diversifying the gaming community.


Only way you'll get diversity in games is if it becomes profitable. Otherwise you'll get a bunch of token games with token game characters that will be good for a few articles and then be forgotten. Just like the film industry.
