Welcome to the first September 2019 Open Discussion. In this topic-driven series, you can post anything that you like about video games or other mediums and face no censorship when doing so. This discussion-based series changes every week and mainly revolves around video game culture.
The Open Discussion arrives every Sunday on this site and explores a variety of topics that include technology, interactive entertainment, politics, and other mediums. Moreover, like any other post on this site, no comment will face any form of censorship.
In addition to the above, if one of your comments happen to face a form of censorship — in that it’s removed or blocked — let us know so that we can address the situation and restore your comment. Due to the acts of WordPress and Disqus, a post of yours might face problems but, as mentioned above, shoot us a message, and we’ll try to straighten things out.
With all of that said, this Open Discussion is about the controversial “#MeToo” movement in gaming. I’m sure you have seen the eruption of accusations and stuff around the net as of recent.
More specifically, how long do you think this movement will last? How many SJWs will turn on each other through this movement? How many people will lose their jobs to accusations? How many lives will this movement ruin? And how do you think the games industry (both big and small) will react to all of this?
Most importantly, the question for you is, what do you think of all of this?
If you have something else on your mind and wish to share it on this Open Discussion, you are free to post it up here. This means that content or stuff unrelated to this very topic can be shared without being moved or taken down.
This week’s song selection is the Paul Oakenfold remix of “When The World Ends” by the Dave Matthews Band. Feel free to share your tunes below.
