How is this “reminiscent of #GamerGate” exactly? It wasn’t sparked by a questionable gossipy smear on someone, there’s no hashtag sparking a bunch of backlash, and this write-up doesn’t even outline any widespread harassment happening in response, just the writer preparing for harassment. All I’m seeing here is someone writing a critique of the game and the developer writing a response that may or may not be in line with what one side of the argument wanted to hear. Neither of these things happened in GamerGate, which was mostly anonymous trolls harassing people, not developers responding back to writers. You can’t just invoke GamerGate every time people disagree on a social justice issue in video gaming.
