I was first made aware of this on IGN. Long story short, if you haven't seen it yet, there's a Kickstarter in the works for a GLBT-themed convention in San Francisco. While IGN didn't seem to be putting forward any opinion besides one of neutral awareness (for once,) the comments section was...heated. To say the least. Linkies: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gaymercon/gaymercon-everybody-games?ref=live http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/08/02/gaymercon-the-first-lgbt-gaming-convention So my question is this: Do you think that Gaymercon is creating an unnecessary rift in the gaming community by targeting a specifically LGBT audience, or do you think that it's serving a needed and appropriate purpose in the current world of gaming? To inquire further, do you think it's even a big deal to start with, or do you think that it actually brings some important and divisive issues to light? While I obviously have my own opinion on this, I'm curious to know what the HTL crowd thinks as compared to the IGN crowd. Discuss!
