Toxins are a problem in the gaming industry

After online abuse, Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert had no choice but to discuss the future release of Return to Monkey Island, and God of War Ragnarok''s producer had to ask everyone to remain patient while waiting for more information on the game.

It has since emerged that some members of the gaming community have even sent unolicited photos of their private items to members of the God of War Ragnarok team. They certain thought that this would suddenly make Sony Santa Monica give the world an update on the game''s release date... How they came to this conclusion is beyond me.

Since all of this has happened, prominent members from the country have made their voices heard and have called out the harmful behavior of these so-called fans.

Following the announcement that Gilbert had deleted his blog yesterday, Naughty Dog''s co-president wrote: "Wow, even healthy adventure games aren''t safe from toxic ''fans,'' who know better than the original creators?!

"Ron (and team) continue to make what YOU believe in! It looks amazing! I''m day fucking one!"

Wow! Even healthy adventure games arent safe from toxic fans who know better than the original creators?! Ron (and team) and yall keep making what YOU believe in! It looks fantastic! Im out day fucking one! https://t.co/3AiFyUrjUN

Ron Gilbert, a massive fan of a game series that changed my life, said on Saturday, "Honestly, as a professional jockey, I''m sure there''s no one else in the game."

As a massive fan of a game series that changed my life, I feel fortunate that Ron Gilbert received another Monkey Island from him. He is a genius and no one else.

Despite the fact that Dominic Armato, the actor of Guybrush Threepwood said, "For a city that fiercely defends its medium as art, there are an awful lot of people who do their best to treat it as a dumb commodity."

There are an awful lot of people who do their best to treat it as a useless commodity in a society that fiercely defends its medium as art.

Gilbert, a development director for EA, described him as a "when folks continue to wonder or question whether or not some game studios will not communicate or speak about games before it becomes available? Or why do they not engage with communities? This is 100% why; it''s not worth the personal toll [and] cost to mental health to continue to try."

When people ask why some game studios do not communicate or say about games before the release, or why they do not engage with communities, it''s 100% why; it''s not worth the personal impact & cost to mental health to continue to try. https://t.co/WKuVni1w7S

Cory Barlog of Sony Santa Monica expressed his support to Gilbert following the announcement, stating, "What the hell people? Please don''t be a dick to my gamedev hero. Sorry for the bullshit, Ron. Thank you for making things that motivate me to do things. Never stop that."

What the hell are you adamant to my gamedev hero. sorry for the bullshit, Ron. Thank you for making things that I hope will help me make things. Never stop doing this. https://t.co/yTx1i4cP4s

This was not the only tweet Barlog had to share with his followers yesterday about just being a decent person.

Barlog said, "Are you lying with this now about the previously mentioned NSFW pictures that was being shipped to the God of War Ragnarok team? "

"I cannot believe I''ll have to say this but I''m not fucking sending dick pictures to ANYONE on this team, or anyone in this industry for that matter. They are busting their ass to make some for you to enjoy.

"Settle some frolicking respect."

Is it okay to say this, but I am adamantly mute to send dick photos to any individual on this team, or anyone in this industry for that matter.They are fucking their ass to make some for you to enjoy. Show some fucking respect. https://t.co/o0xEZkWouj

Alanah Pearce, a Sony Santa Monica game writer, gave her followers a "Common Sense Reminder."

"Screaming at people over video game release dates does nothing at all. Even if harassing people did imply you provide a date (never), you also gain nothing at all by discovering before a team is ready to share."

Reminder of Common Sense: shivering at people over video game release dates does nothing at all. Even if harassing people did cause them to offer you a date (never), you also gain nothing at all by finding out before a team is ready to share.

Parris, the co-host of Gamertag Radio, spoke out about all of the discussions, tweeting: "Stop harassing game developers."

"Be better than this," he said.

Stop harassing game devs what I''ve seen the past few days is just awful be better than this.
