I have to admit I don't know what Gamer Gate is, I even tried Googling it and didn't understand. I think I'm too old.

What the fuck even is gamergate?

I went into that thread and I still have no clue.

A hashtag movement started by a long-forgotten actor to fix video games journalism. It was started up shortly after a blog was published by Zoe Quinn's ex-boyfriend, detailing supposed transgressions she had committed during their relationship. There are a few people that take the movement very seriously and aren't into the whole "attacking people online" thing, but they're just wasting their time, because the vast majority of the people who associate with the movement are. It's been a clusterfuck from the word "go".

Absolutely deserved. The only reason GamerGate could have not won is that "fail," is understating just how truly awful it is. Just absolutely gross.

It's too bad the Scamco DMCA attack on Dark Souls was too recent to vote for.

I'm still utterly confused about gamergate.

That made no sense. Sounds like high school drama.

Fuck you GamerGate, for being so awful Ubisoft or unfinished games didn't win.

What a terrible year for video games.

We need someone to photoshop a trophy for this kind of award. Our version of the Golden Poo if you will. :p

I remember trying to participate in the discussion during the early days of this whole gamergate debacle... I was almost eaten alive and every word I said was blown way out of proportion.

Never again. Glad I stopped before wasting my time on such petty matters.

Crazy people on the internet got involved. Started issuing death threats. I believe there was one person that said that they would conduct a mass murder at a University if they allowed a feminist to conduct a talk.

Yeah... I still have no idea what GameGate is, even after listening to repeated Podcasts on the topic and reading the GAF thread.

So maybe it fails, because nobody can understand what the fuck its about. Hating women, apparently.

As bad as Ubisoft were this year, they don't even come close to how disgusting GamerGate is.

Basically. Any other year Ubisoft would have taken this year with ease but this year we had shit stain after shit stain of news stories with GamerGate being the king of shit mountain.

Fuck 2014.
 
Or threaten to shoot up a university for voicing those opinions at a conference.

I would argue that Gamergate is the worst thing I've EVER seen in gaming, not just for this year.

Seems like a pretty easy argument to win.

Sold the worst out of the three consoles, even with it's biggest hitters released.
Embarrassing, the console is a failure.

Nintendo returned to profit this year. And basically all of their major first-party games a) were well received and b) fucking worked.

So, you know, pretty good round for the console, pissing wars aside.
