You're missing the point....the defense comes from the fact that GG (despite all propaganda to the contrary) IS about ethics in games
journalism...it's about the lies, the cronyism, the dishonesty, and all the rest of it...and yes, now, it's even about combating radical feminism, and
"social justice" ideology....because those groups have injected themselves into the conversation, because that's what they do..
They look for ANYTHING to claim offense to, and play the victim...they twist words, and fabricate whatever they need to, in order to garner more
sympathy, and the money that comes with it....because this is how they make their living.
I did not see it posted much of anywhere on the web or here in this forum, but the New York University school of journalism and gaming department
plays a very large role in this push.
The games as art is a direct backlash to games now earning more money than all TV and movies combined. The ideology preached vocally by just about all
political parties is that MONEY TALKS. Furthermore people spend hours and hours playing games when they used to be watching TV or listening to
This captive audience is the ideal target for social engineering which goes on from all political sides, but as far as art and visuals, the "left"
leaning crowd seems to be the most deeply impacted by it. It is a simple progression for a certain crowd to want to therefore dominate their favorite
medium with their propaganda of how things should or should not be.
When I first read about GG it was through the backlash of several "news" outlets such as Polygon (the offspring of VOX and the journopros scandal
among others), Kotaku (Gawker media partnered with National Public Radio for "culture content), Recode (NBC founded "gaming" and tech), Wired,
Arstechnica (usually "left" leaning opinion peaces but usually solid otherwise), NPR (National Public Radio when they began their women focused
content featuring SLATE, SALON, JEZEBEL, Vox, and all the rest of the media outlets which demonized GG), VICE (Rupert Murdoch's liberal media outlet
play) and the Guardian (they recently put out a piece about preventing white privilege in space on mars where there are only robots . . . .).
GG had KotakuInAction subforum on a website called reddit and twitter, both highly anonymous outlets which would be very difficult to actually match a
post to a name to confirm if the posters were in fact who they said they were.
The media outlets ALL demonized and character assassinated anyone who disagreed with the narrative they were trying to establish. Ran with stories
accusing GGers with crimes which were never confirmed or corroborated by authorities. A blatant public relations hit squad.
The media outlets area MULTIBILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY ATTACKING ANONYMOUS ENTITIES ON THE INTERNET WHO DISAGREE WITH THEIR AGENDA.
FBB thinks the media outlets have played victim while viciously attacking anyone who disagreed with them.
And recode the NBC company just awarded $10,000 to a social justice game marketed towards children and women which teaches how to play with the female
anatomy . . . .
Games as art my A............
