The "Are games art" question is a ridiculous catch-22.

If games aren't art, then they aren't protected by anything that protects art and can be censored and controlled at will.

If games are art, then artfags with an entire faggot of sticks up their asses can shit over everything with their priviledge checking idiocy.

There's literally no way to win.

What a convenient picture this guy is painting. Thankfully its totally impossible for such a large group of people to have differing opinions on the matter - that would completely blow his shitty argument out of the water. It isn't like the only people circlejerk over games are art are the ones who want to spew their bullshit criticisms - no that would be ridiculous. Actually I do believe video games are an artform/medium in which art can exist but very few games are elevated to the level of art. These people don't seem to understand the fact that I have no problem with video games being criticized, I have a problem with the dishonest manner in which they are criticized by these social justice fools and I am frustrated that a good majority of people eat this shit up. GG as a movement is fucking silly as all hell but these fucking assholes are literally scum that don't even bat an eye when their glorious matriarch claims in all seriousness that mass shootings are caused by masculine toxicity.

Just going to go ahead and post some quotes by Milo, hero of Gamergate, who was actually trying to get games banned

>So ignore the shoddy, opportunistic posturing from feminists about Rodger’s crimes. It’s the blurring of fantasy and reality in today’s video game-obsessed young men that’s the real enemy. If there’s a cultural milieu that contributed to the creation of Elliot Rodger, it was that of nihilistic video games, not the myth of patriarchal oppression.

>Counterstrike, which together with Halo and the ubiquitous World of Warcraft are mentioned frequently in Rodger’s manifesto, is the classic frustrated sociopath’s pastime.

>I understand why young people might get the odd thrill from beating up a bad guy, or catching a glimpse of a nipple or two. But there’s something a bit tragic, isn’t there, about men in their thirties hunched over a controller whacking a helmeted extraterrestrial? I’m in my late twenties, and even I find it sad. And yet there are so many of them – enough to support a multi-billion dollar video games industry. That’s an awful lot of unemployed saddos living in their parents’ basements.

also 4+4chan is still fueling this so stop acting like this is dead. Every comic artist is gong to make a statement about this and soon everyone and your grandmothers will know and take the radical SJW side

No, they can't.

I mean, you can't stop them from spouting their uneducated mouths, naturally. But spouting "muh soggy knee" isn't criticism, it's a morally charged condemnation. Which has no place in art criticism.

That's not to say that political and social issues within games can't be analyzed and critiqued, but game journos aren't smart enough to pull that off.

People who make stupid images like this should spend less time being whiny bitches towards an amorphous "game dev community" which consists of people who are just trying to make money, and spend more time telling their fat SJW friends to get interested in games so that they can create a sizable enough demographic for themselves to actually get companies interested in their dollars.

Because a meritocratic system like laissez-faire economics is anathema to the dumb, entitled millennials who worship at the altar of critical theory.

You have to remember that these people blame all their failings on perceived oppression, so that they don't have to confront what a sad sack of shit they are. The idea of being judged for their inherent, individual value is the worst thing that could happen to them.

There's a tweet from Zoe in that image wizardchan made to exonerate themselves that pretty hilariously illustrates the typical view these people have toward the idea of merit.

>Two other former writers, Margot Huysman and Mic Wright, say they are still waiting for a balance of about £4,000 each to be paid. Yiannopoulos paid each of them about £1,000 at the end of October and, they say, promised further payments each month – but those were not forthcoming. When Huysman complained of the non-payment on Twitter, he sent her emails saying “You’ve already made yourself permanently unemployable in London with your hysterical, brainless tweeting, by behaving like a common prostitute and after starting a war with me, as perhaps you are now discovering” and implying he had a salacious picture of her from a party that he would publish if she persisted in complaining.

>What does this story have to do with GamerGate? When I realized Locke was Zoe, I was disgusted to see she was still playing the same games. Stealing, cheating, lying and claiming to be victimized by anyone and everyone. Maybe she did stab some guy in the face, and maybe in the first week at every new job she had, some guy tried to extort sex from her. Maybe that doesn't establish an MO on her part. But I know, I did nothing wrong to that woman, and I did not deserve to be lied about. I did not deserve to have my time and my money wasted, and even now, I wonder if opening my mouth about this means she will think of some new horse shit to spread about me to try to ruin my career. And that does seem to be her modus operandi.

Trivia Question: Which fanbase has literally murdered more people, gamers or San Francisco Giants fans?
>>
If anyone actually has a problem with Anita and her ilk expressing their (incredibly stupid) opinions, I think they're kind of misguided. I think games, as the product of a creative medium, are art, and always have been, and yeah, that opens them up to criticism.

The problem seems to be that critics do not want discussion. People like Anita want to criticize games and do a terrible job of it, which is fine, but when someone expresses their opinion and says "hey that's wrong", it's seen as neckbearded manchildren who are afraid of women in their vidya.

Everything is constantly clouded by these accusations of harassment. Whenever someone tries to give a criticism that doesn't fall in line with the opinions of the weird little cliquish group at the center of games criticism right now, they are branded as part of some sort of hate movement. It's misdirection, but it's hard to ignore because there ARE people doing harassing, and everyone who is uninitiated just jumps to the side of what is most easily identifiable as right (sexism and harassing is wrong, even if that's not really what the other side was talking about).

I guess my point is, yes, if someone is seriously mad that games are facing critique, they're stupid. But propping up a politically-based narrative and attacking any dissenters with misdirection and shaming isn't discussion, it's fucking propaganda.

And it's fine for you to feel that way. I mean, you disagree, so of course you don't want her opinions to have sway.

We have to let her express those opinions though, and let other people decide which is more valid. And yeah, that regrettably ends up with a lot of people picking her bullshit side. But the only thing we can do is better present our argument and hopefully actually affect enough people ourselves that we can turn the tide.

The only thing that really upsets me is the amount of misdirection and shaming employed in this debate. They are completely right in saying Anita should be allowed to express her opinions, however shitty, without being harassed for them, but then they make it absolutely terrifying to try to express any opposing opinions by instantly equating this person with this big bad bigot boogeyman that hates the person instead of just her ideas.

>>270400809
People do that in virtually any debate, though. Our goal should be to expose those fallacies. And I know people have tried to and have been met with "you're just SEXIST!!!", which is incredibly frustrating, but we just have to keep refining our argument and exposing her bad logic and hopefully our less stupid opinions will eventually reach enough people to knock some of the wind out of this weird clique's sails.

We just gotta out-debate them. Nothing else we can do about it.

You're the one misguided here, and I don't mean that in a disparaging way. You're on the right path, you just haven't thought about this enough.

You're right that Anita and her ilk have the right to express their incredibly stupid opinions, but it's important that you recognize these opinions for what they are: moralistic browbeating. It's not "criticism". There's a fine line between criticizing art and attacking it, and declaring a game to be "misogynistic", and thereby dangerous, very clearly crosses that line.

The worrying thing isn't that these people are expressing their terrible, pro-censor opinions, it's that they're doing so and are still being treated as authorities. Don't recognize these people as bad critics, recognize them as nothing more than intellectually impotent idiots.

Games are art. They have always been art. It doesn't necessarily mean they're 'high' art or 'low' art. That depends on the game and a point of view. And it doesn't mean they have to pander to the SJW worldview or any other worldview for that matter. SJWs aren't criticizing and demanding change from games because they're suddenly considered art, anymore than they're criticizing and demanding change of 'street harassment' because it was suddenly considered art.

They're doing it because they really don't like it when other people like things that they don't like, even when it doesn't violate the non-aggression principle. So they whine and cry and complain and shame and slutwalk to get their way. They're adult children.

That's debatable.

Would you consider the Nazi practice of labeling modern art pieces as "degenerate" as unethical?

Now obviously some dipshit at Polygon doesn't have a modicum of the authority that the Nazi regime had. They're not confiscating video games and arresting the devs. I'm essentially comparing a bank heist to shoplifting here.

But shoplifting is still stealing, and what Polygon is doing is still attacking a game and implying that it is dangerous, degenerate and unfit for civilized society.

But even if you don't consider that unethical, it is very clearly anti-aesthetic.

it's so fucking simple. jesus christ.

Allow me to enlighten you to the real goal of these feminists.

But first I have to explain the difference between equal opportunity, and equal outcome.
Equal opportunity is letting anyone take part in a marathon.
Equal outcome is expecting everyone to finish at the same time.

Equal opportunity exists and is protected by the law. Equal outcome is retarded and will never happen.

What feminists want is equal outcome, not equal opportunity. They expect the results of everything to be equal because if not it's sexist. If for example a man gets a job instead of a woman, it's sexist because if a man can get the job a woman should too. What they ignore is that the man was probably more qualified and/or experienced and the better candidate for the job.

Dumb picture. If the creator believes games should be made in variety and not for one demographic, why can't games that please misogynists exist? Games which, in reality, don't even exist yet.

No.

GamerGate has basically turned into a shit flinging war at this point. Picture related is what both sides of GamerGate look like.

Not long ago, I looked on Twitter and several GamerGate related websites (including boards on that other chan website). 95% of what people talk about in relation to GamerGate is negative. They focus on trying to remove problem websites and people.

So I asked them, where is the focus on supporting and promoting good video game journalism. The most common response I got was "fuck off shill" and "sage".

This is in a nutshell GamerGate right now. GamerGate might have been good at once point in the past, but now it's about arguing with SJWs on the internet and if you don't agree with everything they say you are against them.

Art constantly changes definition to appease it's buyer.

Typically art is whatever rich faggots use to create a cultural distinction between themselves and the lower class, like bohemian culture.

Right now Art can't serve any particular purpose except invoke feelings and shitty modern art doesn't even need to do that.

These faggots are going by the "hidden motive" concept where they believe every art piece has a definite form of symbolism or is a form of criticism of something which is why they force shit like Bioshocks weak "Ann Ryand was a bitch" philosophy spewing or shit like gone homes "Muh lesbians you'll never understand 2deep4u" shit.

I don't disagree with you, but I think it doesn't really change what I said.

The most offensive of her arguments, and the one you seem focused on, is that a game can be harmful. Essentially, that misogyny in a game can cause its player to be misogynistic. And I agree, that line of reasoning is completely wrong and entirely unfounded in anything but feelings. But it's STILL just an opinion from a critic, even if it is an opinion that would damage the artform as a whole if instituted as some sort of rule.

I'm not saying her opinions should be given any credence, I'm just saying she should be allowed to say them, and people should be allowed to either agree or disagree with them. If a lot of people agree with a really, really dumb opinion, well, that's indicative of a larger problem. But to say she SHOULD NOT be able to express that opinion because it's based in a moralistic, political form of reasoning sort of uses her own logic. She thought dangerous games should be banned, and we think that idea is dangerous so... we ban discussion of it?

It's a tricky territory, and I know they're not playing fair by pulling out stupid misogyny cards to try to prop up their terrible arguments, but playing by their rules is going to convince no one. If one side is playing with facts and the other with bad substanceless ideas, one side is at a clear advantage and hopefully neutral parties, once they're properly informed, won't buy into the bullshit. But if we start trying to put a gag on her opinions, it becomes censorship vs censorship, which isn't going to convince anyone of anything. Everyone will just stay on their sides and nothing will be accomplished.

We can't just beat her. There's a thousand more Anitas waiting in the wings. We have to beat her in the right way. We have to prove her IDEAS wrong, not try to stop her expression of them.

Holy fuck games ARE art though. This isn't even up for discussion, games are art by definition. The majority of gamers would have agreed with this sentiment even decades ago. These fuckheads are the slow ones that need to catch up. An "art game" without gameplay isn't "subversive", it's bullshit and it's been done plenty of fucking times in the past. Gamers are more than ready, and have been since gaming began, to call games "art".

Why do these pretentious "progressive" fuckheads have to police and piss all over every hobby they touch?

I agree it is sad how easily we fall for this shit. I mean, like you said, she isn't even manipulating WELL, she's just obviously twisting things into half-truths and riding on a Jack Thompson-esque wave of emotions and gut feelings to an audience who agreed with her before she said a single word.

And maybe it isn't possible to convince some of the people engulfed in the weird little clique at the center of this. Maybe they're just too used to seeing it in the way they do. Maybe the goal should be just presenting the best argument we can so the more undecided parties can see our line of reasoning, compare it to the opposition's, and realize we make more sense.

I know that's an optimistic way to look at it. These people misdirect so often because it WORKS. The audience they're preaching to is swayed by arguments that are essentially:
>Person A: I think that [blank].
>Person B: What? No, [blank] is wrong.
>Person A: Only people who hate Person A's think [blank] is wrong, you bigot!!!
Yeah, it's frustrating and frankly scary how effective their shitty, thinly veiled manipulation is.

But there's nothing to do but keep trying.

Don't let them beat you with such bullshit. You just have to keep presenting your argument, and continually refining it, until hopefully their supporters scratch their heads and dwindle away.

I know two people personally who were extremely pro-Anita who have slowly gone through the stages of "anti-Anita is evil" to "anti-Anita is mostly bad" to "the bad minority of people against Anita outweighs any good points they have" to "wow i did not understand this thing at all when I started." One of them has backed out of the discussion altogether and the other has actually talking against Anita and co.

I'll say it again.

Anyone is going to be mad at losing money, especially if it's hundreds of thousands of dollars. These are businesses we're talking about, they exist purely to make money.

But Gawker makes more in a day than all of GamerGates efforts have caused them to lose. You've done no lasting harm to them.

Criticisms generally hinge around the idea that the concept is generating negative behavior or reinforcing degenerate ideas, anon.

Also, few people are condemning creators based on their work. Creators in film and canvas and music have all come forward to discuss their more negatively charged work. Even Comic Book artists have discussed why their comics feature rape scenes and other sexually violent segments in one way or another, offering appropriate and acceptable answers.

Suggesting game creators are not capable of the same behavior is infantilizing and unfounded.

"Bigger the population, the more minorities. Don't step on the toes of the dog lovers, the cat lovers, doctors, lawyers, merchants, chiefs, Mormons, Baptists, Unitarians, second-generation Chinese, Swedes, Italians, Germans, Texans, Brooklynites, Irishmen, people from Oregon or Mexico. The people in this book, this play, this TV serial are not meant to represent any actual painters, cartographers, mechanics anywhere. The bigger your market, Montag, the less you handle controversy, remember that!... Authors, full of evil thoughts, lock up your typewriters. They did."

Holy shit, Bradbury was right

Some are assholes, some are well-meaning people who've swallowed the con. Either way, Anita doesn't deserve the money, and gaming doesn't deserve to have to put up with her.
