In interests of accuracy, Zoe Quinn's games were never reviewed by the fella in question. She was part of a panel interviewed for an article.
As to legitimacy. Nah. Were the fuck were they for, say, GameSpot and Kane And Lynch, to give one example? It wasn't until the lines of Quinn or Anita Sarkeesian crossed their radar that these fucking eejits got exercised.
I may have been too charitable to them before, reading back on it the whole video games angle is just so
tangential. A jilted ex-boyfriend revenge posting about his girlfriend who coincidentally was a games developer and one of her alleged paramours was coincidentally a games journalist which apparently is enough weight for conspiracy theories about how arty indie games are darlings of critics even though they've been rejected en masse "real gamers" that favour titles with skill challenges (usually measured by enacting some form of violence), so obviously there must be some corruption afoot
That's a shallow and insipid point to launch from and it becomes even more absurd when you consider the scale of harassment towards Zoe Quinn and eventually other targets. All because they imagined their safe male space was going to be disrupted by feminists. The irony is, most of these fuckwits are as radicalized as the ISIS muslims they take exception to.
