We at GAB have always been fans of Extra Credits. We’ve cited their “Harassment” Episode from Season 4 many times in conversations with devs. It’s fantastic. Two seasons later, they are still bringing it. Check out the video below about “Toxicity” in the gaming environment (a term made popular in the GDC Presentation by Riot about curbing toxic behavior in LoL, and a term we’ve since embraced).
One of our favorite takeaways:
“Sometimes a tiny bit of empathy, team-oriented phrasing, and finding something other than ourselves or our teammates to blame is all it takes to cool people’s heads and get them back in the game.”
What do you think about the video and, specifically, the onus they place on the individual gamer to clean things up? Let’s discuss it in the comments below.
