I Have Been Blacklisted By The IGDA!

39 posts in this topic

i play a lot of video games, buy plenty on steam, played since i was 11 years old back in 1997, i have fragged plenty on FPS games on the internet and have owned every sony console except the newest, played lots of xbox related stuff, done some nintendo and so on.

 

yet i have absolutely no idea what IGDA is, or KFC, or gamergate. i think your reviews will do just fine.

The IGDA is the International Game Developers Association.

INB4 this thread gets locked:

 

I sent an email to Github saying that the repository is defamatory. Best case scenario is that they request that the publisher to remove the label of "harasser", and the IGDA follows suit.

 

I personally think you should be able to block whoever the hell you want, labelling someone as a "harasser" just for supporting GG is defamatory.

Well this is Stupid just because you disagree on someone political agenda does not mean you blacklist them or shut them up...

I really couldn't care less if people get blocked, I care more about the defamation associated with being labelled a "harasser" by the IGDA.

I'm a little late to this discussion but I would just like to say that I enjoy your reviews. I want to keep seeing them and this list is clearly bullshit.

Sensing a shitstorm coming towards IGDA aka actual legal actions.

The first time people actually hear of them, and it's something negative.

Go figure.

They're not the ones who made the blacklist, but they are endorsing it

still have no idea what this is. why does gaming need FBI / CIA like associations or groups? why can't companies just make games, and journalist companies publish reviews of those games.

 

i would assume the IGDA, whatever it is, is setup entirely to buy off journalist companies to get top rated reviews on the bad games they deliberately produce. of course that assumption may be wrong but here i am, a gamer, and i just play games and buy what i want. why does the gaming industry need an IGDA, KFC, MCDONALDS, GAMERGATE, bla bla bla.

 

i smell a lot of bullshit in the gaming industy today. A LOT, of bullshit.

Love the quote of "not a blacklist but a blockllist" while endorsing banning people from the industry based on the list.

Seems awfully alot like 1950's US with the "communist" blacklist or Soviet union and Nazi germany with their lists of enemies of state.

But that's just me. I'm sure that totally won't happen. At all. Ever.

What they don't realize is that by endorsing this blacklist (oh, I'm sorry, blocklist), they're only proving the GamerGate movement's point.

While we recognise this situation is negatively affecting our members our policy, which many of you whom have posted in this topic realise, is that we do not support discussions around gamergate because they, the discussions, have continually strayed away from anything gaming related, they become political and feelings are getting hurt. Discuss it elsewhere.

Another note; "in before the topic gets locked" is the most disrespectful thing you can do to a moderator. You're flagrantly stating you know you're breaking the CoC but simply before the topic is locked. If you know something is breaking the CoC our reasonable expectation is for you to report it not for you to contribute to it. With this standpoint made clear small punitive action is going to be handed out now and in future when people behave in this manner. You have been warned.
