Pretty much everything is the subject of massive shouting matches in "the gaming world" though (which mostly means PvP gamers, I guess). It's what competitive gamers do. They have no chill. If they did, they would presumably be doing something else instead... :wink: It's not everyone, of course, but that kind of environment attracts those types of people and that type of animosity.

So I still don't understand what is the purpose of that growing list. Any comprehensive list of "what gamers fight each other over" would have to include literally all imaginable (and some unimaginable) things anyone could fight each other over.

I’m back with another update! Also, as you might notice, I’ve once again changed which symbols I used for prefacing each question by using a different numeral system that I concocted myself. My reasoning is that I’m convinced someone might try to popularize my questionnaire without crediting me, so I’m putting my own personal touch on this list so that any potential plagiarists could be exposed even sooner. I apologize if it looks too counterintuitive.

I admit that I’m no expert when it comes to world history, but looking back, 2014 was a really rough year. Arab countries had to deal with a resurgence in Islamic extremism, people in Hong Kong tried and failed to counter the Chinese government, India’s government had begun fully embracing Hinduism’s answer to Islamism, online political propaganda became more abundant in Indonesia, there was more violence between Israel & Palestine, Russia had brutally invaded Ukraine and Venezuela’s economy really starting going down the tubes. There were even some events that affected people around the world that year, like a new strain of Ebola that spread to various countries (even though it was originally noticed in December 2013) and a serious software bug that was revealed to the public several months after it was mistakenly introduced. Of course, some hard right people and hard left people in the “Free World” don’t care about all that because pop culture is the only culture that matters to them.

It's always between a giant douche and a turd sandwich, isn't it? Just to be clear, I'm convinced that both of the main factions are two sides of the same damn coin that's definitely lost its value over the years, hence why I wish for nothing more than a plague on both their houses. As far as I'm concerned, it seems like the only winning move is not to play, but that won't stop some people with an ax to grind from siding with one group of zealots just because they only care about condemning the other side's sins. Since neither side is willing to apologize for any time their members harassed or doxxed those who disagreed with them, I believe anyone discussing this flame war should be afraid, be very afraid. The only solid advice I can give is to convince others to spit out the Kool-Aid that either cult offers them, because whoever wins, we lose. Also, please don't mention this schism by its name, since nothing good comes from directly mentioning That Which Must Not Be Named; don't think it, don't say it!

For those of you that correctly typed out You-Know-What, as in the name of the online phenomenon that's been traumatizing me for months on end, WHY DID YOU SAY THAT NAME?!

I'm convinced this whole thing is just a problem in the Anglosphere, because a good number of people from elsewhere didn't fall for the "my enemy's enemy" fallacy. Go ahead and check these sites out, assuming you're okay with learning about opinions that could be deemed problematic, unpatriotic or haram in general.

- Uncyclopedia’s Spanish-language counterpart hated both sides: [1], [2], [3], [4]
- Some Russian tropers took a third option: [5], [6], [7], [8], [9]
- A popular Hungarian gamer blog condemned both factions: [10]
- A popular French meme blogger didn't like either side: [11], [12], [13]
- Some South Korean geeks had issues with both camps: [14], [15]

Does anyone have some more thought-provoking questions to add to my questionnaire? What other websites are firmly neutral about this fiasco? Would you like to talk about some other tragic events from 2014? Feel free to comment away!

Should I cross-post this to the politics forum? I was really hoping to get some feedback on this project that I've been working on for the past few months.

RE: the aesthetic question, I do have an aesthetic but I would never condemn anyone for liking or disliking a character design. Heck, I like characters a lot more by personality than by aesthetic, and if I see a design as having issues (such as NSFW or objectification) I won't hesitate to point them out.

In other news, it would seem that some people in foreign countries have begun to think The Anti Side is the lesser evil compared to Team Pro, assuming these popular websites genuinely represent public opinion.

As a follow-up to my previous post, I'd like to say that while Google seems to have the same biases as the other sites I had mentioned last time, the search engines popular in countries like China, Czechia, Russia and Ukraine seem to be reinforcing a different partisan narrative.

I'd like to offer two more observations about all this talk about gaming culture:

1. As I said before, it seems that China’s most popular search engine, Baidu, has sided against the regressive left. To me, that indicates that all this infighting isn't really a conflict between moonbattery and wingnuttery. If anything, it's a battle between non-ironic political correctness gone mad and extreme rejection of identity politics.
2. Maybe it's my obtuse view on politics in general, but I think this event has more in common with the Endless/Eternal September of 1993 than it does with the Watergate scandal. Roughly twenty years (or one generation) before so many people raged hard about video games and the like, there was a spike in internet usage, and it led to all sorts of chaos and confusion that permanently changed internet culture for netizens at the time. The only difference here seems to be that today, some fringe doxxers with a taste for extremism can permanently violate your privacy if you condemn one or more groups of politically partisan hacks, or at least refuse to praise them, though if you’re really unlucky, you can be utterly misrepresented instead of hated for who you really are.

I really do wish more people would condemn both sides of conflicts like *********, like Galago, Se7enist and Tony Goldmark. Both sides have sown too much discord for either of them to be fully in the right. (By the way, I’m sorry if I’m acting like a noob by simply referencing a bunch of seemingly randomly selected people I’ve never met just because their ideas about this topic are fairly in line with my own.)

Okay, so I've already talked about how 2014 was a hectic year for several countries, but I want to talk a bit more about how this sort of calamity might have happened before. Instead of comparing this harassment campaign to the revolution of the Internet during the 1990s, maybe I should compare it to the backlash against the New Left during the 1970s (even though I'm too young to have witnessed it all unfold in the first place). In both of these situations, there was a rebellion against a tradition of neglecting minorities' rights, but the left-wing extremism and propaganda got so intense that many adherents started thinking to themselves that "liberalism was a mistake", so they jumped ship and made themselves at home on the other end of the political horseshoe. Now, we have to worry about two groups of pop-culture pundits so fervent about ideological purity that gossip about them reads lack a bad satire of new religious movements.
I know it's naïve and cliched to claim that society in the US changes regularly throughout generational cycles, but I don't know how else to describe how things fell apart these past few years. What do you all think about this? Am I ignoring something about either side or even entire patterns of behavior from third parties, and if so, what is it?

Considering that so many people involved in this discussion have been arguing mostly about video games from Japan, I think it’s worth noting that a major Japanese video game website (4Gamer.net) and two Japanese video game companies (Nintendo and Roninworks) have outright condemned this movement’s supporters without necessarily playing apologists to the movement’s detractors. It seems the only way anti-SJWs will get the game they want is to rely on coders in the Anglosphere, but only two companies (The Fine Young Capitalists and Anomalous Games) have tried that, and their respective games are mediocre and vaporware. By the way, is it okay if I start using the g-word that I omitted from the title of this thread?
