Here's more of that "Nazi Germany" Neogaf has been come to know by.



Oh wait, that's not Nazi Germany. That's Resetera!

And it looks like SJW's are displaying extreme racism against other cultures.

Why ARE THEY GOING AFTER A GAME THAT IS NOT EVEN LOCALIZED IN AMERICA/EUROPE?

Could it be that I was right all along? That the goal of globalism isn't to just target Western countries, they also want Japan to be stripped of its own unique culture as well? Is that the "Nazism" I am being told when I want countries to remain unique and not just become monolithic blobs?

Yeah their goal is that all the world needs to follow western prudish moralism. They are the new version of puritan colonialism and they don't even notice.

The ban covers scenarios such as a man with his feet up while a woman cleans, or a woman failing to park a car.
Are they banning adverts from the 1950's or something? When has a recent commercial had anything like this. Most of the recent gender stereotyped commercials have just made the man or husband be the dumb dumb in the relationship. Are those banned too?

I dunno, but it seems like a pointless law to me (if it wasn't so insidious).

Advertisements are by nature supposed to attract customers, not repel them. So ads are already kinda-sorta regulated by society itself. If an ad is really offensive (by whatever contemporary standards in which it aired) then the company gets punished for it: damage to reputation and loss of current and future sales.

So I've been a member of GAF for years now and was around for the mass exodus a little while back that resulted in ResetEra. I stopped posting there last year after I came to the realization that they're just fucking insane. Regardless, they are a good source of gaming news despite the insanity. Everything I post here is probably well known but after months of just observing threads and watching things transpire, I feel the need to vent.

GAF was never perfect, it has its quirks, but I enjoyed the community and was happy to post here. After the exodus, I moved to Era because that's where the gaming community went and that was my sole reason for even being here. I love video games. I was with Era since it opened and then one day last year a thread about the suburbs appeared and long story short, I was accused of being evil and possibly racist because I prefer to live in the suburbs and drive a car. That's when it hit me. Era is fucking nuts. I made some more posts after that but eventually decided I was done. I continue to browse the site for gaming news and have taken notice of just how crazy they are. The sad thing is I agree with them on most issues but I just can't support their extreme responses and reactions. Below is a list of what I consider pros and "what the fuck" items that I've taken away from being on Era. This is all based on my views and opinions.

Pros
- They are progressive or at least consider themselves to be. Nothing wrong with that and I consider myself a left-leaning person or leftist if you will.

What the fuck?
- A so called "progressive community" left this place by posting nasty pornographic images of women to get themselves banned and "make a point". Point not taken.
- You can't create threads to discuss moderation or the site's policies. Why? I firmly believe they want to push a certain narrative and don't want anyone thinking outside the box. And there are definitely more "mods" on Era then they would have you believe. Any threads about social issues are usually filled with the same members enforcing right and wrong and making sure everyone knows it.
- If you voted for Trump or are Republican you're an evil, vile, scum-sucking maggot and a Nazi. Not even remotely true. Yes, Nazis/alt-right individuals are out there and are absolutely horrid but I do not think every single person who identifies as a Republican in America is pure evil.
- Every police officer in America is evil and racist. That's easy to think when all you post is negative stories about the police. To be fair, I do think there are serious issues within the police force that need to be addressed and there are bad cops out there. But I do not think every single police officer is a corrupt racist scumbag or complicit in a racial conspiracy. There are good cops out there, too.
- Hate by association. You do this, which means you support that, which means you really support this, which says this about your values, therefore you're a horrible person. No. Not how that works.
- "Agree with us or you're banned". This is basically the core issue with the site. I've noticed anyone who goes against or appears to disagree with the community will end up being banned for something at one point or another.
- Unjust bans. Just one example although I'm sure you will find hundreds more. A member made several threads to discuss the different "positive" aspects of the economy. He was eventually banned for "dog whistling". After that, I actually took the time to read the TOS and rules again and as far as I can tell, this member never broke any rules. If the topic sheds any kind of positive light on the American government, they refuse to accept it and attack anyone who expresses happiness about such a topic.
- The "community built on love" is full of hypocrites that seem to hate everything and are always miserable. They left this place because they didn't want to be associated with sexist behavior, among other things. They don't like to support any person, corporation, or community with toxic views. Yet, there are individuals on the Etcetera side that have called out the Gaming side as being toxic. Based on their "hate by association" mindset, why haven't those individuals left? There's a lot of doom-and-gloom on Era. We're all fucked, everyone is already dead, and it's everybody else's fault because they have the whole life thing figured out, right?
- "Don't support them" is more like "stop enjoying things". THQ Nordic, Rockstar, Amazon, Epic, Naughty Dog, CDPR, and the list goes on and on. Yes, many of these companies have had or still do have issues and they have to be brought up in every thread associated with them so we "don't forget" and as a result, the threads derail into the same arguments. I agree the issues should be addressed. But, newsflash, there is probably something - whether its a value, person, belief, product, whatever - associated with everything you "consume" that doesn't match up with your values exactly whether it's behind the scenes or in front of your face. Just because you know now doesn't mean shit. I bet a Republican works at a Walmart somewhere in America so I guess we can't shop there anymore if it's not already on the no support list. They all feel the need to constantly try and outscore each other on the moral purity test.
- Separating the art from the artist is "unhealthy" and the word "recontexualized". I've seen it expressed this way and I disagree and thanks to that website, I've come to really hate that word. In my opinion, Mel Gibson is a good actor. He's a racist but what does that have to do with his acting? I don't support his views but I'm not about to burn my Lethal Weapon blu-rays because he's in them. I will continue to enjoy my favorite buddy cop films whenever I want and still advocate for good causes. Watching and/or discussing a movie is not "defending" bad behavior.
- If you stay within the confines of the topic, you may possibly be ignoring an issue and should be ashamed. Example; if you're only discussing the gameplay of Cyberpunk 2077 - in a thread about the gameplay - it means you're not discussing the social commentary which means you're ignoring a real problem in the world and that's what's wrong with society. Apathy due to a lack of empathy. Because apparently they've all played the game that hasn't released yet and know what the developer's true intentions are. It's crazy.

I understand that many members on Era have physical and/or mental issues which may hold them back socially or otherwise. Some are even suicidal based on some of the threads I've seen. I'm not blind to this and I do hope these individuals get the proper help they need which can be understandably difficult and costly given the state of the American healthcare system. I also understand that Era is made up of a lot of individuals that are part of marginalized groups. But their moral and thought policing is ridiculous and the fact that they enforce this type of mentality makes them borderline dangerous.

Shit's going down here, in our Off Topic.


Hey EviLore EviLore , should this convo be migrated here, or are you cool with posting in that thread? Had some thoughts on the matter, but it’s your forum and we already have 2 Era threads, including this one.

I feel you. I had my account deleted over there yesterday after just not being able to take their extremism and hostility anymore. Sadly it was the second account I had deleted as I left the first time after their reaction to James Gunn’s firing and seeing a bunch of “liberals”cheering the results of actions by alt right trolls. I eventually went back as it’s just hard to find a forum with good gaming news coverage and active game OTs. News mostly gets posted here too now, but game OT activity is low outside of major AAA releases. Hopefully that will continue to improve as activity as a whole increases.

But yeah, I just realized that despite being very far left in my views, never voting for a candidate on the right in my two+ decades of voting etc. that I just don’t fit in over there. Their views are just too extremist and I’m not going to apologize for making good money, owning a nice house and caring about what’s best for me and my wife above and beyond everything else, all while voting left and supporting liberal causes.

That place is just a magnet for people with severe mental illness, people who’ve failed at life (be it their own fault or bad luck or both) and struggle to get by and so on. Hence all the suicidal posts, and people being angry and bitter and resentful toward anyone who’s doing even ok, much less those of us doing well for ourselves.

Fuck that noise. I feel sorry for people struggling, but life’s too short to be around a bunch of miserable fucks trying to pull everyone down like crabs in a bucket to wallow in their misery. I vote against my own fiscal interests as a liberal voter with a $200k+ household income, pay $4,500+ in property tax, and pay a lot of sales tax as we spend a lot due to not having kids or caring about retiring early (we love our jobs and save plenty to retire in our 60s and live well). That’s the most help unfortunate people are getting from me. I’m not a people person and it’s not my fault that many poor vote against their self interests for social issue reasons or that the government blows our tax dollars on defense spending instead of helping its citizenry.

Thst sucks, but I’m not going to drive myself mentally ill over it, nor hang out with the angry, bitter nutjobs in the looney bin even if I share most of their views. Yes, I hate Trump and what he stands for and the policies he’s enacted, but it’s had zero actual impact on my quality of life. Thus I’m not going to let it make me miserable or crazy. Instead of being a deranged keyboard warrior I write/call my representatives, donate to environmental causes etc., all while continuing to enjoy my life and the fruits of my labor. I will also keep voting for liberal candidates who will hopefully change government spending in ways that help the unfortunate. The extremists who want/expect more than that can go fuck themselves.

I see various posts by recovering Reesetters saying they stayed for the gaming news.

Might I suggest using r/games for your gaming news. (Note that r/games is the "serious" one, r/gaming is the "lighter" one.)

Definitely a good resource. Had already been using that, and will be making more use of it going forward.

Only thing I'll miss is the fairly active game OTs for most every game on Era (or here prior), rather than just major releases. Most game sub-Reddits suck and are just full of kids/people posting memes/screenshots/gameplay clips etc. which just doesn't interest me vs. traditional Gaf/Era OTs of people chatting about games as they play them.

I'll do my part to help by making OTs for some of the smaller releases I play. Made one for Collection of Mana already, made one for Dead Cells in my last stint around here, plan to make one for Hades when I get back to it (if someone else hasn't in the mean time). Hoping it will be an "if you build it, they will post" type situation. Both in generating replies and encouraging others to make similar OTs for lesser releases by showing it doesn't need some uber elaborate, image and link heavy first post. People mostly look at that once and there after are just jumping to the latest page of discussion. A couple images, a trailer embed and links to some digital and physical purchase options is plenty IMO.

I'll leave the major AAA release OTs for people who make those kind of elaborate first posts as that's the norm/expected for major games, but it's not needed for niche games that will get a handful of pages of replies over a game's life at most.

The last post in the Birthday thread conveniently reveals Reset's bias.



3 years going, they still wont acknowledge he's the legal president of the USA.

Keep at it Resetera mods. You're only going to make the next 4 years hell for yourself and your website.

Just wanted to say that after that pedo thread here about that secret ERA Discord and overall ERA bringing me down with so much negativity Im heavily considering to just leave ERA and stay on MetaCouncil.

Wrote about it here before E3 that I considered leaving for a while when E3 is done:


The shady Discord channel is really disgusting. Unless I misremember, at the beginning of ERA, they talked alot about transparency, but that seems to have been a lie.

Very dissapointing.

It’s hard to control the narrative and shadow ban dissenters when you promise transparency.

There was a time I remember when being on the edge of new tech refreshes for GPU and more so Game systems was a huge time of excitement and everyone could kind of revel in their geekdom. E3 especially was a huge time, it is like Christmas for all gamers no matter what your platform of preference. For too long now that has swung over and now the priority seems to be shit on someone else's enjoyment and find the nit pick and flaw in everything and focus on nothing more. Even more so with the counting of inclusion or offense or what someone may have said on twitter one time or another. Some people just want to be miserable, it feeds their moralistic martyr complex and they can pat each other on the back in between self flagellation.

The male feminists made another thread:


What is Feminist Theory?

Feminist theory covers a broad range of topics, but for this thread we're gonna be focusing on feminist theory as it pertains to pieces of fictional media. In the case of this thread, we are framing anime and manga through a feminist lens and covering topics like gender inequality, representation, stereotyping, objectification, among others. The point of such discussion is meant to point out viewpoints and attitudes held by a work of art.

F fantomena I think you should stay bud. We're all building this again from the ground up. I know you had investment at era and there are no deep rooted personal issues. I get the fact that most of PC-Era went to metacouncil and that's where your main interest lies. But I'd ask you sill check in from time to time. The site has already changed so much in the last year and more software upgrades have been promised.

I'll see what I do. My main problem is that Im addicted to just reading news on ERA as I use ERA to stay updated on gaming news and different things , gotta get rid of that addiction somehow.

As discussed above, I’ve found r/games a great news aggregator.

Note it’s r/games and not r/gaming. The latter is mostly memes and people sharing screenshots/clips.

I would argue /r/games tries too hard in its defense of shitty gaming "journalists" and hosts many of the same type of people as Era.

Month long
Audioboxer got a bullshit month-long ban on ResetERA and he subsequently asked for his account to be deleted.
month long bans become a perma with the next "infraction" anyway. Dead man walking, might as well wait it out and suicide calling out thier pedo coverup. Then ask for the deletion.

This thread has it all. If there was ever a thread that summed up the current shitshow that is resetera in one go then this is it. Ridiculous bans, faux outrage, "tired" posters (its currently missing someone saying they need to "lie down"), calls for people to be banned for "wrong-think", the thread being locked only to be reopened again after mass banning, "read staff post" in the thread title, etc, etc.

Just incredible stuff. It's one for the ages.

Also, Mike Pondsmith is my fucking hero:

Yeah, this is the thread that finally broke Audioboxer. Truly one of the most mind-melting threads.

And of course harSon hates that quote from Mike Pondsmith.
