Zoe Quinn On Cracked – “5 Things I Learned As The Internets Most Hated Person”
Zoe Quinn wrote an article on Cracked today, detailing how she became “The Internets most hated person.”
Putting aside big game releases and the reviews that follow them, it’s hard not to notice that the recent big stories in the video game industry have been based around Zoe Quinn.
I, like many I’m sure, am just wanting these sorts of things to not be the “big news” of the video game industry and it’s a shame really that they are.
After the whole thing broke not too long ago, it seemed like things were beginning to quiet down and get back to the way the industry should be, with the focus being on video games. But, earlier today, Zoe Quinn, who at the height of it all could do nothing but watch as everything unraveled before her, wrote an article on Cracked under the headline; “5 Things I Learned As The Internets Most Hated Person.” The article came to life after Cracked “reached out to Zoe Quinn to see what it’s like to be the Internet’s Most Hated Person,” what followed was a five point article focused around what it’s like to be ousted by the gaming industry.
The article breaks off into the five categories she puts emphasis in and goes into details what it’s like when everywhere you look people are cursing your name. She describes what it’s like to see people dig into her past in an attempt to find anything that will help nail her to the cross, and what it’s like to have a Wikipedia page that lists your date of death as “13 October 2014 (We hope).”
Now, I’m not here to add more to the crusade against Zoe Quinn, and I’m not here to point any fingers or take any sides in the case. I’m more so here to ask, when is it time to get back to the way things were years ago? When the video game industry was reserved for video games and video game related news, that is the time I wish things would get back to. Don’t you?
