GTFO pries open the video game world to explore a 20 billion dollar industry riddled with discrimination and misogyny. In recent years, the gaming community has grown more diverse than ever. This has led to a massive clash of values, and women receive the brunt of the consequences every day, with acts of harassment ranging from name calling to cyber vandalism and death threats.
Through interviews with video game developers, journalists, and academics, GTFO paints a complex picture of the video game industry, while revealing the systemic and human motivations behind acts of harassment. Females crashing a sacred male club? Hardly. In 2014, women gamers surpassed men at 52%.
