YAY Gamepolitics! Let's show them how biased we can truely be! Remember we only post things about vile Republicans no one dares to speak ill of their lord and savior here Barrack Obama who is god

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Hate to break it to you, but it is GP's right to be as biased or not as they want. Besides, it is a fact that a higher percentage of people reading this tend to swing liberal, regardless of whether it has to do with Age, Education, Location, or whatever. If you don't like it, don't read.

I, for one, don't listen to or read anything by Fox News, because of thier rediculous conservative bias, not to mention, they are on the bottom rung with regards to how they represent Video Games.

Anyways, I also wanted to point out that your posts practically OOZE with ignorance and stupidity. They kind of have a "Hannity and Limbaugh said this so it must be true!" vibe. There's a reason the country is in the process of moving left, and you are a perfect example of why.

I can't wait until Nov. 4th Rolls around and your "Maverick" and his Woman are put in thier place by the American People. It's about time, too, considering America has been SO far behind the rest of the Western World with regard to Health Care, Economics, Social Policies, and Ethics. It's no wonder Europe thinks our country is nothing but ignorant rednecks..

I hate Barack Obama's love of gun control and I know I'm not the only here that does so. Although if you know of a flash game that makes fun of Obama or a machima vidoe let us know and it'll probably be posted (in fact I wanna see some Obama bashing from someone other than Mad Magazine).

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Yee-haw!  Let's put the Republicans back in so we can all keep our guns.  They'll come in real handy too when the economy REALLY goes down the crapper after a couple more years of the same failed policies, and we're left to fight over the last remaining fuel for our SUVs.

Yeeeeee-hawwwww!

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Remember kids it's Ok to engage in stereotypes if the other guy has a different opinion than you do.

For the record I still am not sure who I'm going to vote for.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Is it just me, or do most gamers lean toward the Democratic party?

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

People under the age of 35 tend to vote more Democratic whereas those over 35 tend to vote more Republican. I'm sure you know that most gamers under the age of 35.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

And majority of the world too.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Hilarious! And full of that delicious political satire we've all come to love. I'm getting hungry for 'more of the same' goodness just through watching! XD

Game on, brothers and sisters.

E. Zachary KnightNeeneko, Matthew, yeah, there is no "wrong" way to review a game. It all depends on who the reviewer wants reading the review.10/30/2014 - 10:48am
quiknkoldhas their own stream, you are a gamer. I think the only prerequiset is to Play Games for Enjoyment10/30/2014 - 10:21am
quiknkoldI always felt the Gamer Identity was expressing an enthusiasm for Gaming in general. There are different degrees to that. If you say "I love this game and play it, lets see what else" with Ipad game, you are a gamer. If you are a retro game collector who10/30/2014 - 10:20am
NeenekoIt is long overdue, and things will probably settle down when they accept that the industry does not cater to them and them alone and go back to posturing within their own subculture.10/30/2014 - 10:10am
NeenekoThe community has always been split, with many factions within it, and they used to not interact all that much. Now they are having to confront they are not alone and thus not the one twue gamer identity.10/30/2014 - 10:09am
CMinerMW: The two are not mutually exclusive.10/30/2014 - 10:05am
Matthew Wilsonthe gaming community is going to split in to 2 groups. one wants games reviewed as product, and the other as art with all the social critique that comes with that. at this point i dont think it can be stopped sadly.10/30/2014 - 9:56am
NeenekoIt is a wonderful example of the heart of the issue, people accustomed to being part of defining value slamming into people who have other values.10/30/2014 - 9:53am
E. Zachary KnightAlso, this is a hillarious view of Kickstarter "Fine, still doesn't justify taking people's money they gave her to do a project for herself." talking about Sarkeesian.10/30/2014 - 9:35am

E. Zachary KnightApparently, it is ok to review a games art on whether or not you like the style, but not ok to review a game's story or theme based on whether or not you like or agree with it.10/30/2014 - 8:40am
MechaCrashComics never change because the people in charge now read comics when they were kids, and keep reverting comics to what they remember. As long as that cycle holds, change will be slow at best.10/30/2014 - 8:18am
Neeneko@ MechaTama31 - That is the big reason fansubs were tollerated for so long in the US, japanese studios kept watch to see which ones became popular via those networks.10/30/2014 - 8:11am
quiknkoldJournalists shouldnt be bigger than the stories they report or products they review.10/30/2014 - 7:48am
E. Zachary KnightHere is some food for thought for gamergaters who want politics out of games journalism. https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20141026/06425828942/journalists-need-point-view-if-they-want-to-stay-relevant.shtml10/30/2014 - 7:18am
quiknkoldI didnt say all games are like that, Conster. Princess Peach was....different. though I had fun with it.10/30/2014 - 7:00am

MechaTama31AE: Japan's doujin scene illustrates an interesting potential solution to that problem. Let people play around with the characters, and keep an eye on things to see what people are buying.10/30/2014 - 12:07am
ConsterI bought, played and liked the game (unlike Smash Basketball *shakes fist*), but that felt iffy to me.10/29/2014 - 10:52pm
