#welovegamedevs hashtag brings the love to game developers
#welovegamedevs hashtag brings the love to game developers
August 22, 2014 | By Mike Rose




A Twitter hashtag dedicated to showing support for game developers whose games have touched our lives is trending today.

The #welovegamedevs hashtag was started by The Guardian's Keith Stuart early this morning, and has since snowballed with fans, writers, and other developers expressing their love for their favorite games and devs.

Plenty of big names are getting involved with the hashtag, while companies like Sony have also jumped onboard to fuel the barrage of tweets.

If you're looking for a great way to start your day, it's well worth checking out the hashtag, and maybe even tweeting at those developers who have inspired you.

So that's why the #Ilovechocolatemuffins hashtag failed so miserably this morning... world gone mad.

Seriously? In the face of what is probably some of the worst abuse in the history of games the games community responds with an outpouring of positivity and your first thought is "yeah, but I'm angry about a thing".

If you think I'm just "angry about a thing", it looks that you are already subscribing to a narrative where this is all to blame on the "mob", the "gamers", the "4channers", and other ethereal entities.

Abuse is never, ever justified, but all situations are more complex than just us versus them. There were real issues, about trust, coherence in jornalism, and favoritism among friends and coleagues (even here on Gama, apparently), they got sidewiped because of larger the political issues.

I suggest of you to search for more information, and listen to people you might not even ordinarily trust. But to cling to one narrative, the "poor oppressed developers vs. the angry mobs of the internet", is a waste, and a sad thing. The amount of hipocrisy in this whole debacle is unnerving, and made me question if I still wanted to be part of it.

News outlets declining to comment on a made-up conspiracy and the private life of a developer, which is private and not ever news, is not a political issue.
