True & Honest Fan
They won in that they succeeded in gaining control of western gaming journalism and gaining control of mainstream western gaming culture and ghettoizing anyone that doesn't think like they do as "Gamergate"I get the sentiment as obviously SJWs/woke people are insanely annoying but they haven't really accomplished a whole lot that matters, I don't even consider it a win. Japan gives absolutely 0 fucks and is still putting out plenty of "problematic" games. These people are essentially reeeeing into a void. Even in this specific case, Dragon's Crown got a PS4 release in 2018 and had no censorship whatsoever and 13 Sentinels came out last year and still has plenty of big anime tiddies and high school girls barely wearing pants if that's your thing. We're nearly a decade from when all the Dragon's Crown yelling happened and Vanillaware is still just doing their thing.
All they've really effected is western game development which is currently shit right now. But considering how many games keep losing money that won't last forever. It's already been discussed in this thread multiple times but even the big western companies are starting to realize listening to these people is just costing them money.
The impact they've had on video games themselves has been varied, Japan gives no fucks as you pointed out, but the vast majority of mainstream western developers and publishers absolutely do care what a Schreier type thinks and want to make them happy first and foremost.
I did say "for now" and times can certainly change, but assholes like Schreier did score some major victories for years when they should have been told by everyone to fuck off when they started their shit in 2012/2013 and they should have fucked off.
Basically they really did win the battle of the 2010s, but will they win the battle again in the 2020s? That remains to be seen, but I'm just lamenting the fact that they won anything at all.
