forbes-are-dicks

Earlier today, one of the bigger names in publishing, Forbes, released an article on their site about the whole Gamergate controversy currently going down in the gaming media land. For a quick recap, basically this whole debacle began with the Zoe Quinn sexscapades, dubbed the “Five Guys Burgers And Fries” incident.

burgers-and-fries

This is probably one of the biggest controversies in gaming media to date, and it’s actively being ignored, or worse, swept under the carpet by some of the largest gaming (news) content providers out there.
