      Yes. Ganker and image board culture has always been a no-go zone but no one was really looking at Wii U-era Nintendo as a genuine competitor of the scene. Wii U-era Nintendo in general was fricking bizarre because they were really desperate with how horrible the Wii U was which is why I'm guessing stuff like pic related were given an 'okay' in addition to stuff like Mega64 and Robot Chicken being given control of certain Nintendo directs

        But the reputation of this website has also changed a lot in the past decade.

        Remember the Gaben birthday card? That could never happen today either. Imagine if Gabe Newell accepted this today. The next day there would be 100 articles on the front page of google titled things like "Why is Valve platforming the far-right website Ganker?" and "Gabe Newell accepts birthday gift from notorious alt-right incel website".

        The early 2010s was just a different time, man. Things were so much more chill.

          I miss it so much.
          Everything didn't seem better: it was better.
          Everything, and I mean everything, was better on the internet, everything was chill.
          >Oh but we had trolls that dox people and spammed gore
          >Oh what about x
          No time was perfect but you know what the main difference was? They weren't doing it because they thought they were fighting some culture war, or they were saving the world. We didn't have popular moronic e-celebs celebrating vigilantes causing everything to be constantly draining because no sin is too minor to punish.
          Frick everyone that made the world like this: Everyone kept saying for five years the world will become more forgiving and rehabilitation will be the norm but we got the exact opposite.
          It's kind of soul-draining because I wanted to make a video game when I was younger and now I'm afraid to finish it.

              The only way I think we'd ever back to normal is for mods to start handing out bans like crazy, which would no doubt cause another exodus but maybe this time things will get better if they did.

            It was also a time where /misc/ stayed in their fricking lane. People here talk about wanting to get politics out of muh vidja and then immediately post seven blacked bait threads. I can tell you this board would've gone schizo for new vegas if it came out today

              It really doesn't help when leftoids also try to bait the /misc/tards by making dozens of "chuds seething" threads per day.

              If this was 2015 Ganker the words "chud" and "woke" would both be filtered by now.

                I was referring to the fact that 2015 was when t b h and f a m got word-filtered due to overusage. Those words aren't even spammed particularly often anymore, but they're STILL filtered.

                If Ganker today had the same attitude, imagine how many buzzwords would have been added to the filter list.

                There's no reason to filter because this site got way more profitable once the /misc/schizos opened the floodgate. There was a decent Ganker thread the other day on 90s fast food mascots and the mods nuked it while keeping five santos and 3 troony hate threads up.

              It blows because I also want bullshit out of my games: I want games to not be censored anymore.

            Hate this shit, you probably just think that because you were a kid back then or something. The only thing the 10s did better than now was less woke shit in games or w/e. But they were just as soulless and corporate as the current year. Absolutely everything in pop culture from the time was horribly safe and manufactured. Horrible time for games too, I got into retro games really hard at the time because of how bad modern games were.

          Because board culture is hard to have when you have a million morons from facebook, reddit, and stormfront washing in during the late 2010s. Instead we get low effort morons like 659824706 who haven't been here when shit was fun and stupid and are more concerned with culture war over decent fricking memes.

    and then they started censoring games and went full woke sjw. Same year gamergate was born. Even the bawd pedophile Anita Sarkesian asslicker that moonlighted as an escort, was fired by Nintendo and then went on a tirade insulting fans on Twitter is in the picture.

    That's because it was a marketing scheme. Giving the worst members of something you like a big thank you card and then the next few years they systematically destroy their own reputation and reveal they've always deeply hated you?

    2014 was such a dogshit year for video games that the only company who released any decent (and had a decent E3) was Nintendo. Particularly with their treehouse streams.

    This was before Treehouse really started doing moronic censorship in their localizations.

      You think that if a video game developer posed with a card from Ganker in 2023 they wouldn't get insta-cancelled? You're rather naive, aren't you.

      Remember that Minecraft used to have a message that sometimes appeared on the menu screen which said something like "Hello Ganker"? Yeah, that's been patched out now. This website is treated as a leper by the rest of the modern internet, nobody wants to be associated with it.

        But it wasn't because people finally learned to stop waving their autism but because the world was so sanitized everyone's afraid of doing anything bad ironically making bad things more common.
