    Woah, I didn't realize how every single thread in the news section is now about this lawsuit. I thought everything was relegated to just two threads, but look at this:

    It's all part of DU's plan to transform this site into a Taylor Swift fanclub.

    I wouldn't say there's some master plan to transform the site into anything in particular. DU has simply lost interest in games over the years and these days engages in MGTOW/idpol stuff instead.

    This guy's very enthusiastic about supporting Chris and very sure his evidence outright proves his innocence. Does it tho? In the eyes of a court does it mean something? Or is it just another thing to add to the inconsistencies with her story? Can't she say some bullshit like "I was a stupid girl back then, I understood what happened to me was wrong much later..." etc?

    No, there were not. Even with women like Roberta, we don't exactly know what they did, because women then (and now) were working with men, almost never as solo developers. I guess there are some women who are actually good game developers, but they are that famous exception to a rule.

    Almost every developer works with other men... I guess we don't know what *they* really did.

    Jane Jensen, Lori Cole, Amy Hennig are pretty good writers and mature women, that I'm sure. Looking to those three then looking to pink hair eternal teenager millenial garbage that replaced them, it is sad.

    Exactly! I think since Dark Souls became a hit they realized that we don't need brilliant writers or developers, because people will play almost anything. So who are they going to hire? You can hire minority to virtue signal that your company is trendy. Or you can hire women (also a minority according to them) like Alanah Pearce, because why not? She has an amazing body, why wouldn't you stare at that all day rather than some chess club guy like Avellone.

    GTFO. I have no recollection of being you. And I'm certainly not Black. I simply forgot he exists when I set my avatar to Sandro.

    Corelation does not imply causation. Games went to shit when and because they became mainstream. Mainstreamization of mechanics and gameplay was the cause of everything getting worse. More woman getting into development was just coincidental with games becoming more mainstream.

    Women generally follow men on any field that grows over time, men go there, create the field, once the field expanded enough to support low challenge, low stress jobs, women tend to gravitate towards those jobs. This happened on the health industry and is happening on games, the major problem isnt that but that most men are fucking disgusting simps that do anything and sell their houses for a vague promise of pussy. All those stunning and brave women of color on movies and games many times werent even ideas from the women but turbo simps trying to prove who is the biggest simp.

    You just can't stand that you are so bad as a person, and it's progressing, that you can't really enjoy anymore actually amazing games like Planescape: Torment or its Spiritual Successor, CODEX GOTY 2019 Disco Elysium, so you need to invent a specific reason of accusing other people in liking cool things they like. Disguisting.

    Yes, we've build a monument to Avellone for what he did 20 years ago. Honestly, he can justly retired right after that, but he gave us some other rough gems of his talent.

    Don't shit on the grave of the career of the great man. We symphatise for him because we are humans. We have empathy.

    This is you putting 2 and 2 together, but not really being correct. Or maybe trolling. I don't know. But I'm going to address this as you being serious.

    Dark Souls had nothing to do with this. If anything, gaming became mainstream to most people, and women, somewhere along mid 2012. That coincides with a different name becoming big: Clash of Clans. If anything, all the big streamers that got their audience *from* Dark Souls fans are pretty much all male. Women became interested in Dark Souls when the 3rd one came out.

    Just because indirect story-telling doesn't require much writing, that doesn't mean it doesn't require some brains behind it. Plus... Miyazaki has stated that he's fine with both direct and indirect story-telling. But then again, few women inserted a fucking Monty Python joke, and a World of WarCraft meme into a game and came out with a decent RPG, so there's that.

    So you're saying that a videogame crash could help us get rid of both women and hipsters in the gaming industry?

    Jokes aside, there is another factor that draws this army of dangerhairs into the industry: corporate culture. The truth is that men are far more interested in console and PC gaming than women and the workforce demographics should reflect that. But good luck convincing the PR department of any major company to state that basic fact. They'd rather hire a bunch talentless female hacks and promote lectures by Anita Sarkeesian in the name of diversity and inclusion. And I pity the guy who speaks out against those policies, since he'll be fired in a heartbeat and will never work in the industry again. That's how you end up with simps like Nathan Grayson and sociopaths like Neil Druckman being the (male) face of your industry.

    You don't need to hide your embarrassment by pretending that you attended a nerdcon ironically, across the globe, at a very high ticket price or that you're not familiar with the character names. It's ok.

    Honestly, a major economic crash would help on getting rid of alot of bullshit not only on the gaming industry. Most those companies are fine cosplaying about being stunning and brave caring about the gayzs but I dunno how they gonna feel when the FED and the European Central bank lose the control of this farce they call an economy.
