Storyline

Sparked by a public display of sexual harassment in 2012, GTFO pries open the video game world to explore a 20 billion dollar industry that is riddled with discrimination and misogyny. In recent years, the gaming community has grown more diverse than ever. This has led to a massive clash of values and women receive the brunt of the consequences every day, with acts of harassment ranging from name calling to cyber vandalism and death threats. Through interviews with video game developers, journalists, and academics, GTFO paints a complex picture of the video game industry, while revealing the systemic and human motivations behind acts of harassment. GTFO is the beginning of a larger conversation that will shape the future of the video game world. Written by Anonymous

I'm Confused About The Narrative
4 August 2015 | by CaptainPrivilegeSee all my reviews

I found this movie very confusing.

At first we're told that the video game industry doesn't cater to women but later we're told that 50% of gamers ARE women. These statements can't both be true and the fact that such a glaring plot hole made it out of the writer's room really took me out of the movie.

I also found the central performances lacking. Leigh Alexander appeared to be slurring her words and Anita Sarkeesian's acting (if you can call it that) was worse than Bart Baggett's.

If you want see a more realistic depiction of what it's like to be a woman in gaming, I'd recommend the Law & Order SVU episode, "Intimidation Game". They absolutely nailed it.
