Yeah, stop working with a rapist, stop pressuring people to work with a rapist. Where does it end? Just one unreasonable demand after another! Next she’ll expect the rest of us not to rape people! I mean come on!

Sure, the abuser is bad, and the person who went to bat for the abuser is bad, but you know who’s really the worst? The person who noticed. And worse, wants people’s shitty behavior to improve. The absolute nerve.

If it were most industries, sure. But Hollywood has a entire-history-of-Hollywood-long problem with not hiring women who speak out against abuse, and labeling them “difficult” or even “crazy”.

There actually is a list of movie tie-in games (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_games_based_on_films), but I think you can make a clear distinction for games advertising consumer products and not films, if someone out there wants to compile that list.
