Posted 11/11/15
Not sure where to put it, but apparently there's going to be a Gamergate movie based on Zoe Quinn's memoir.

Meh. I wonder how many people are going to watch the movie. Also I heard that Scarlett Johansson might be in that movie.

Never understood gamergate. It seems kind of silly. Probably not worthy of a movie.

It's not so much that she deserves one, it's more that she gotta keep milking the attention of GamerGate or she'll fade back into irrelevancy.

And if it weren't for GamerGate this movie wouldn't be made, so what the hell?

Yep, it's a classic case of "there're no good sides to take" in this situation.
I'd bet that the script makes all feminists look like pure-hearted innocent loving people and everyone that opposes them look like conniving mean-spirited dumb misogynistic extremists.
We'll wait to see society's stance on this after the movie's released, how well the tickets sell, and how the movie is critically reviewed.

Depends entirely on those you ask.

One group will say it's a misogynistic movement out to drive women out of gaming and harass anyone they don't like.
Someone else might say they are fighting against social justice warriors.
Another would say they are worse than ISIS.
While yet another might say they are about ethics in game journalism.
Or someone might suggest they are a consumer movement.

If you use wikipedia, it will be all the negative things I said.
If you try different sources, you might get mixed results.

I would remain sceptical of what most people claim it is - yes that includes me.
Be wary of those that will easily label others as something terrible. Especially the so popular misogyny label, because whenever someone labels GamerGate with that, I think of all the women who support GamerGate and are supported back. Which is odd, if they are so misogynistic.

Personally speaking, I'd say GamerGate is a banner of sorts that many people have united under. Originally to expose unethical behaviour and make game journalism get its act together. Nowadays? It's more of a hybrid between clashing with people who disagree with it, trying to make things better (with sometimes bad and good results) and the constant reminder that there are people earning money from being "victims" of GamerGate.

don't think she (atleast Zoe and how they did google ideas.. google it XP) are able to do so.

fans will be all over this like the ones supporting Anita
