Zoe Quinn: “Depression Quest Dead in the Water Without Grayson”

I’ve mostly stayed away from the notorious “video game” developer Zoe Quinn. She’s a hot topic, and guaranteed traffic, but she’s also radioactive. Every time GamerGate criticizes her, the media has a tendency to portray it as harassment, or everyone ganging up on poor Zoe....
