Re: The (new) Fail/Win Thread

I kinda think she's cute.

PS: I didn't suggest watching all of that was necessary, but offered it as elaboration for anybody who was interested.

Re: The (new) Fail/Win Thread

Okay, I'm sorry if I was unclear (apparently my english isn't as good as I thought). What I meant was: do you want to tell me why you think she is unethical in a way that requires 5 minutes or less of my time?

Again, I'm only curious since there seems to be some kind of consensus about that when "gamers" talk about her without anybody explicitly saying why. I haven't cared about watching her videos since the point she is making should be fairly obvious. Video games aren't an exception when it comes to using traditional storytelling techniques which use stereotypical ways of pigeonholing characters based on gender (shocking!). IMO, the backlash is insane and I'm wondering if there's some other reason why people are so fucking mad.

Re: The (new) Fail/Win Thread

To be fair it was cummulative "work", and by "work" I mean an interest that probably lead to viewing out of curiosity, not due dilligence.

How do you know if her point is valid, or if the way that she goes about presenting her point of view is acceptable/ethical if you don't watch the fucking videos? Is this such an elusive notion to grasp?

I've read about them and I've watched some of the material. Much like I haven't read any great philosophers original work but have read other peoples opinions, synopsis and critiques of their work. Strange concept, I know.

You made a claim and I asked for a reason for that claim. If you asked me why I think Bill Burr is an asshole I would just tell you, not give you some dudes wannabe TED-talk about it. Jeez, this is like pulling teeth.

Yeah, it is a strange concept to compare in depth monographs & treatises of world renowned philosophers to vlogs from vidyatards regarding a barrio pendeja.

The problem is not that she has a point. She has a point. But she deliberately misinforms and misuses the games she shows:

She shows scenes completely out of context of regular gameplay, all the time.

She ignores the fact that game mechanics apply to the game as a whole, not only to females (e.g. critisizing that you can drag female hookers' bodies around in Hitman, when you can drag around just everything and everyone in the game).

She ignores that there already is a huge load of games, and always was, that has "strong female characters". She instead nitpicks negative examples from certain blockbuster games and projects those nitpicked findings on gaming as a whole. Apart from that, she indirectly suggests all games would fit into her scheme, when many if not most games don't even care about characters, and thus gender, at all.

She obviously has no clue about games. There is even a recording of her stating in some university seminar that she doesn't play videogames as they are stupid, or s.th. along those lines. Most likely she started her interest in games just prior to her youtube project. Yet she claimes to be a seasoned gamer.

She promised a professional documentary to her kickstarter backers, when everything she did was a bunch of videos videotaping herself and commenting stolen (!) scenes from other youtube videos.
For the money she gathered, you'd at least expect some interviews with genre VIPs and actual camerawork.

Yes, the footage she uses is stolen from other youtubers, it's just re-edited material from a huge number of "let's players", so really the only thing she did by herself was recording her face while talking.
