Here is its eulogy, a collection of the kind words written about it while still among the living. They shall live on forever in its place.

Author Comments

Anita Sarkeesian has not only scammed thousands of people out of over $160,000, but also uses the excuse that she is a woman to get away with whatever she damn well pleases. Any form of constructive criticism, even from fellow women, is either ignored or labelled to be sexist against her.

She claims to want gender equality in video games, but in reality, she just wants to use the fact that she was born with a vagina to get free money and sympathy from everyone who crosses her path.

Reviews

This game is disgusting and misguided, and the author's comments are nothing but hateful, biased lies.

As far as I'm concerned, this game should be considered hate speech and a personal threat against Anita Sarkeesian, and should be removed as such.

I'm not sure what she has done that is so terrible.

She originally wanted $6000 for 5 10-20 minute videos, which would be $120 a minute at worst. Between any kind of research, shooting and editing, she ain't exactly becoming a millionaire overnight. People ask for funding for podcasts and video series and stuff all the time. Sometimes people want to get paid for the time they spend working on/making things. The only kind of "scamming" I've seen is massive financial support because of all the assholes harassing her. I see no evidence of her getting that money through ill-gotten means.

I am not sure of the criticism of her ideas that has gone unresponded to. I am only mildly versed in this situation and would be interested to know if there were any merit to the responses she has gotten via this game/protest and other comments. In this game, all I can see is a attack against the person instead of the person's ideas. Facts are presented (her show, the kickstarter, the amount of money requested vs. what was actually raised) as well as unsupported claims (scamming money, she's a con-artist, not addressing criticism) and the game finally proceeds to ask the audience to "beat this bitch up" under the guise of equality and in the form of a cheap flash ad.

To an onlooker, this does not support your cause well. This reactionary appeal to emotion is a pile of garbage compared to your opponent trying to talk about sexism in media through a series of videos using different examples and actually talking about them to some degree. Her videos aren't necessarily perfect and I don't agree with all the points she makes. (Not sure what Sarkeesian is suggesting should be done from the tropes she presents. Extremist/ignorant/overly sexual women and men appear in real life to some degree, so it doesn't really make sense to completely get rid of them when writing for media, but I suppose we should be aware of their overuse.) Either way, its definitely more agreeable than what you have presented.

what a bitch! I enjoyed beating her to death thanks for caring

man you wrote all sorts of stuff, but it was too long so I didn't read it.

I think you're just mad because you can't get laid.

10/10 would play until death.
