This is an excellent episode of Extra Credits about harrassment in game communities.


every single reference to “us as a community” makes me go “???” and i don’t quite know why

maybe something about using media as an identity and a basis for growing a community feels really… off? i don’t know. it just seems weird to not only make the type of media you enjoy a huge part of your personal identity but a basis for the construction of a community of like-minded people.

It seems strange to me that you think community membership and personal identity are the same thing!

    i see them as both toys and as young adult genre fiction, honestly. a medium with potential that’s not quite realized...

    I think you do attach too much significance to it. I’m not a gamer except in that I play games and like to talk about...

    idk, that’s basically how fandom works. people form communities about serious things but they also form communities...
