Guess my dad was right, video games are for kids. That's probably why everyone in the industry has to act like a fucking 4 year old to get their way.

Nope. They act like that because they can.

Only a matter of time before insults reach the levels of "I know you are but what am I?" and the like.

I imagine if this keep going and growing in notoriety is gonna end up with at least someone getting hurt for real.

I've seen swatting threats flying around and since swatting is actually a thing that can happen, yeah, I wouldn't be surprised either if someone gets hurt.

Good for you man. As for me, I will not leave behind stuff like Metal Gear and the Souls series for a bunch of people being dramatic on the Internet.

GAMING IS SERIOUS BUSINESS meanwhile large swaths of Asia and Africa are fucked as fucked right now but nevermind that.

Seriously if the gaming industry ended /right now/ would it really be a bad thing? I think the world has enough games. Who here DOESN'T have a massive backlog?

How does that argument hold any water? Should break ins and burglary be allowed because people are murdered and raped?

I read it as satire. Although, since I'm not Mesh, I can't confirm if that was the feeling he wished to convey.

ALso, this happened. Even veteran game devs are allowed to act in such an infantile way. If I acted like this at my job I'd be fired ten times over.

I think he's just trying to put things in perspective. Gaming is not that important - people would be sad if it went away, and a lot of people would be out of a job, but it's still just first world problems compared to...well, even bulgulary.

Well, at this point it no longer is about gaming. It is about professionalism and respectability. These people have none.
