In The Middle Of The Crossfire‏

On August 28th 2014, over a dozen articles were published by gaming magazines with titles that can be summarized as “Gamers Are Dead.” On that same evening, I sent an email to Ben Kuchera, the Senior Editor of Polygon, one of the magazines that attacked gamers the most vehemently, hoping that a journalist that I didn’t know too much about, but liked his articles, could voice the concerns of gamers who were caught in the crossfire of trolls harassing people on one side and a group of radical ideologues on the other.
