I disagree. I think the quality of posts on RPS has gone down in recent years, mostly have Kieron Gillen left the site. Cara Ellison is no replacement for Leigh Alexander, who at the time wasn’t just “the token woman we’re not sexist guys no we’re so not sexist look we even have a woman writer!” Most of their articles are about the sexism in this or that, as if I have the memory span of a goldfish. And the linkbaiting in the site rework, oh boy. Actually, there was an interview by Nathan Grayson over Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard’s new MOBA-DOTAlike-whatever you want to call it, and he spent the end of the interview basically demanding that Kerrigan’s outfit was sexist. It very well could be, though I don’t know the difference between old Kerrigan’s skintight Ghost outfit and new Kerrigan’s skintight zergskin outfit. But his argument was terrible and I think he’d have got the point across better if he screamed and threw something. He didn’t know how to frame his point quickly, then he threw a FIT about it the next day because they “didn’t get it” when he completely failed to tell them why they should care at all. The dismissive statement used was, “We’re not running for President. We’re not sending a message. No one should look to our game for that.”
If this is the best representation that this movement has to offer, then it’s dead in the water. And the writing standards of RPS have gone down. Hell, Quinn had a small blow up over his New Vegas review and even that was better than the schlock that Nathan has churned out.
It’s a lot like fixing education- everyone knows what they want, no one knows how to get it, no one wants to do anything about it. Some people yell about it a bit but no one cares because no one has a plan. And the longer this goes on, the more laypeople like myself will question why should I care about this when there’s bigger problems to worry about and learn about, like South Sudan.
