The FGC and Its Bad Habits

    By now, I’m sure many of you reading this understand the relevancy of the title, and the hot button issues that have sprung as of late.  I came across an interesting article this morning by Giant Bomb writer, Patrick Klepek, which shed some much needed light on the subject of collusion and it’s lengthy history.  I really applaud the article for it’s content and clarification on collusion within the FGC, along with incredible and undeniable evidence that dates back as far as 2004.  That’s something you don’t get from Kotaku and IGN.  Now naysayers have no leg to stand on, just their own ignorance.

I urge you to read as it is actually quite an interesting take on the subject of sexism, however a bit misguided. It’s not the tone that I found ridiculous, rather it’s attempt at defining misogyny and how women in video games are portrayed with all the sanctity of a rub rag. Squarely, I take insult at the jab of one of my favorite characters in video games, Ivy Valentine. To be fair, Spaniards love gold and absolutely relish the fur trade…
