We remember when E3 was all about the games. It’s now, apparently, all about the perv-tacular harassment. As one video game developer so eloquently put it, “Video games? At an expo for... video games? Who wants that? No-one, that’s who. Shit to it. Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s groping time.” (he may --MAY-- not have said this at all). This week, Kotaku brought us 'The Creepy Side of E3,’ which exposed all kinds of dastardly and bastardly behavior from E3 2013. Among these horrors were, “the security guard that groped a journalist at this year's E3. Or the writer who gave a PR woman his business card by slipping it in her dress. Or the women presumed to be booth babes simply because of the way they looked.” You can get the full, questionable story at the link in the main article, but suffice it to say that the position of the fairer sex in the industry was done no favors at the showcase.
