Yesterday was a sad day in the gaming industry. In less than 24 hours, we received the news that Ron Gilbert, the creator of Monkey Island, would no longer talk about the upcoming release of Return to Monkey Island after the online abuse, and everyone had to be patient while waiting for the creator of God of War Ragnarok. For more news on the game.

It has since happened that some members of the gaming community have been sending unwanted pictures of their private parts to members of the God of War Ragnarok team. They somehow believed that this would suddenly give Sony Santa Monica the world an update on the game’s release date … How they came to this conclusion is beyond me.

Since all this has happened, key members of the industry have raised their voices and protested the toxic behavior of these so-called fans.

Following the news that Gilbert had disabled his blog yesterday, Neil Druckman, co-chairman of Naughty Dog, wrote: “Wow! Even nutritious adventure games aren’t safe from toxic ‘fans’ who know better than the original creators ?!

“Ron (and Tim), keep making what you believe in! It looks so beautiful! I’ll be there one day!”

He went on to say, “Honestly … as a big fan of my life-changing game series, I’m lucky we’re getting another Monkey Island from Ron Gilbert. I want the vision of his team and no one else.”

Meanwhile, Guybrush thripswood actor Dominic Armato wrote: “In a community where his medium of art is strongly defended, there are a lot of people who try to treat him like a dumb object.”

Alex Mann, EA’s development director, also commented on Gilbert’s decision to take a step back from the Internet, writing: “When people are surprised or asked why some game studios don’t communicate or talk about games before they are released? Why 100 percent; it is not appropriate to take personal toll [and] Costs for mental health to keep trying. “

Sony Santa Monica’s Cory Barlog also backed Gilbert after the news, writing: “What’s up folks? Please don’t dick my game god hero. Sorry for the balsheet, Ron. Thank you for making me do things that inspire me. Never stop it. . “

Unfortunately, this was not the only tweet Barlow shared with his followers yesterday that is generally a decent man.

Referring to the previously mentioned NSFW pictures sent to the God of War Ragnarok team, Barlog wrote: “Are you kidding me with this now ???

“I can’t believe I mean this but don’t send dick photos to anyone on this team or to anyone in this industry. They’re blowing their asses for you to have some fun.

“Show some less respect.”

Sony Santa Monica game writer Alanah Pierce gave her followers a “common sense reminder”.

“Screaming at people on video game release dates doesn’t accomplish anything. Even if people are annoyed and they have to give you a date (never), you won’t find anything by searching before the team is ready to share.”

Gamertag Radio co-host Paris also shared her thoughts on everything going on, tweeting: “Stop harassing Game Davis. What I’ve seen over the last few days is pretty awful.”

“Be better than this,” he finished.
