What is wrong with Anita Sarkeesian at GenCon? Well there are a few issues:
1. Anita has been proven over and over that she doesn't play games, like games, or even understand games. So why is she speaking at a gaming convention? Would it not be a better service to the gamers paying to attend GenCon to invite game developers, game writers, or professional game players as speakers?
2. There are around 100,000 people attending GenCon 2018, how many of these people are able to see Anita's speeches? Anitia was scheduled to have 2 speeches. The room holds around 1,000 chairs (I counted). So how many people actually get to see what she has to say? Around 2,000 right? No. The answer is 160 people. They only accepted 80 people to get tickets to each show. So GenCon paid a speaker to talk to 160 people at a convention of over 100,000. Would it not be better to have speakers who can talk to a larger percentage of the people paying to attend GenCon?
3. No live questions would be taken. You had to write down any question you had and then Anita's team would pick which ones they wanted to answer. You got no follow up on Anita's answers. Would it not be better to invite speakers who actually want to talk to the people attending. You must really dislike gamers if you are not even willing to talk to them during live Q/A sessions (my opinion).
A gaming convention with people who are very, very, very passionate about gaming lost the opportunity to go hear a speaker who was also passionate about games. Instead GenCon paid for a speaker who does not like games or gaming, only allowed 160 people to attend and took no live questions. This was a staged fraud meant to promote SJW values and opinions. No opposition speakers were invited for a true 2 sided conversation.
Gamers have a higher than average set of values of no cheating and being fair. If you cheat, lie or setup up a game only you can win, you will be ostracized by other gamers. Yet this whole Anita situation was unfair and staged from start to finish. If GenCon was demo'ing a game there would have been nobody at their station.
I am extremely upset with GenCon's decision to bring a person who doesn't even like the gaming community, a person who will not even have open conversations with gamers, and someone who is pushing a political ideology at a gaming convention. This was a slap in the face of all the people who really love gaming.
