Since this keeps being a reoccurring topic I thought I'd lend a hand and put together a comprehensive list of web shows and youtube videos that pretty much explain or talk about these various topics. The vast majority of these will be from Jimquisition and MovieBob's various shows (because in my eyes they're the two biggest proponents out there discussing this stuff on a regular basis), but there's a couple other web shows too. They've been all categorized and easily separated so you can pick and choose whatever you wanna watch. BTW: If you aren't already watching these shows, you really should be!

The format is (name of episode) (name of show) (web link). ENJOY!

Just so you know, "Heavens to Metroid" links to "Bat Slap".

I know you probably won't see this among your hundreds of other comments, but I thought it prudent to mention regardless.

Ah, Tom, the "Heavens to Metroid" link is incorrect, it leads to the "Bat Slap" episode. But, hey, thanks for the links!

Now that I've had a chance to calm down about your comic, I'm going to post something here. I expected this to be another soapbox journal, but I was surprised to see that it was more of an opening of discussion with a list of videos. I've already watched Jimquisition's video about the Dragon's Crown controversy and he makes so many of the points I was trying to make but probably never got through to you. You seemed surprised that people were annoyed with you before, so I'll tell you why. I genuinely want to reason with you. The problem with your Quiet comic is that you weren't inviting a discussion, but a "boob war" (a very important point in Jimquisition's video).

(I suppose you could just ignore this comment if your intention was never to invite a fair and calm discussion in the first place. I just get the impression that a thoughtful discussion was you were hoping for all along.)

I don't have a problem with you criticizing artist's work within the industry, but of you insulting them or making false, negative conclusions of their character and intentions depending on what they decided to create and presenting it as fact. It's completely disrespectful to the artist, his work, and his fans.

Calling Hideo's work "sexism" and saying that he "doesn't respect his audience" is unacceptable. Preemptively stating that "Any character development or interesting personalty will be a garnish at best" is unacceptable and jumping to a negative conclusion about something that isn't even released yet. The industry's officials and game journalists pretentiously calling an artist a "pre-adolescent" or "manchild" because of his work is unacceptable. This is why your comic generated backlash instead of respectful discussions. You're not being inviting, but insulting. You give off an aura of self-righteousness when you do that. You're effectively shaming the artist and his fans. You're dividing your fans between those who agree with your insults and those who feel like they need to defend themselves.

You'd get a very similar response if you made something about Nintendo, stating they are a stagnant and un-innovative studio who relies only on rehashes because they don't respect their audience enough to make new and fresh original content. It doesn't matter who's right, but how you present your ideas that's important.

If you don't want backlash, you need to respect the people who are going to read your comic. Be inviting, not insulting. Be constructive, not destructive. Think of ways to inspire calm discussions instead of angry ones. I mean, Jim Sterling did just that and his comment section for his dragon's crown video ended up way more civil and tolerable. He gained a lot of respect with that video because it was a breath of fresh air that allowed people to actually discuss things without either party (against or for) coming in and feeling immediately disrespected or like they need to defend themselves and their tastes.

Please, next time, try to be respectful with your comics so I don't have to feel like I'm defending what I like right from the get go. The people alienated by your comic have been alienated by industry officials, game reviewers, and more quite a lot by now, so you were basically adding fuel to a fire. And while you could make the argument that some people have been alienated by game designer's design choices for some time now, I don't see how adding more alienation is solving anything.

The people who truly are sexist will always be there. But the people like me who simply like something and would like to have a discussion about it would like to do so without feeling like the median is rallying an army against them or that they are immediately being made to look like the bad guy. That's all.

For all the points you made, it seems clear that Tom has NO intention of dropping the narcissistic "Us vs Them" mentality.
