One Angry Gamer is a gaming-related blog created by William "Billy D" Usher. As the site has grown larger with more authors contributing to it, it has grown from being a rather standard pro-gamergate site to a "SJW rekt, get woke go broke, Feminazism is cancer" clickbait site with an extreme reactionary bias, to a full on alt-right website with sympathies to Neo-Nazis like Red Ice TV[1] and Nick Fuentes.[2] They are so abhorrent that Kotakuinaction, the most popular gamergate subreddit, disowned them for their hypocrisy. [3]

Anti-PC "Master" race[edit]

One Angry Gamer's main contributor Billy D and his smooth-brained brethren are an embodiment of all the worst stereotypes about gamers. Misogynistic,[4][5] homophobic,[6][7] transphobic,[8][9] racist,[10][11] weirdly obsessed with lolicon[12] and fan serviceWikipedia's W.svg,[13] which wouldn't be that remarkable if they weren't so obsessed with diversity (which they don't like) and non-white countries (which they really don't like) "infiltrating" the West (which they do like, if Westerners are alt-right reactionaries like them).[14] They also like to complain about everything being political[15] unless something happens to agree with them.[16] The problem with that line of thinking is that everything is political, especially One Angry Gamer, a website that is strongly politically motivated in complaining about anything that isn't a straight white Christian male. They only tolerate women in games if they're adequately sexualized, believe that people of colour or people of different sexualities in their games is "degenerate propaganda", or the left trying to force "diversity" into games (presumably to destroy the West), and like to paint LGBT people as pedophiles, while also running articles complaining about games that sexualise children being censored. They also like to complain about conservatives being "attacked" and the anti-white plan that they believe the "eevill leftist cabal" is participating in. Almost all of their articles are about how SJWs are ruining gaming, NSFW articles about which hentaiWikipedia's W.svg William Usher gets off to, and the occasional white nationalist op-ed.

The site is also heavy with ableism, pushing conspiracy theories[17][18] (note: these two articles were written a few years after One Angry Gamer correctly pointed out that while the Comet Ping Pong emails were strange, there was no evidence that a pedophile ring was involved)[19], white genocide fearmongering,[20][21] Islamophobia,[22][23] and fat shaming.[24][25]

Billy D, tear-slurper and Rorschach enthusiast[edit]

According to him, Billy D has been "rustling Jimmies for years covering video games" and "drinking the tears of game journalists". He also likes to say "niggertry" and "faggotry" a lot.[26] Amusingly, his avatar Rorschach is a WatchmenWikipedia's W.svg character written by Alan Moore,Wikipedia's W.svg a far left anarchist with extremely progressive views (Leftist infiltration must be extremely bad when the founder of a reactionary website proudly references one). Ironically, Rorschach is usually portrayed as a socially awkward person with psychotic outbursts and sociopathic behaviour. So maybe William chose the right avatar.

Even an angry gamer is right twice a day[edit]

Despite being one of the most obnoxious reactionary sites on the internet, One Angry Gamer does occasionally make valid points. They rightfully criticized Donald Trump and conservatives for claiming that video games cause violence,[27][28] as well as being heavily critical of Gab,[29][30] even if that's only because Gab doesn't like porn. They also made a rather nuanced article about ProJared's controversy, not resorting to "#MeToo is cancer", "Projared's a male feminist", or "Cancel culture is garbage" arguments that you'd expect them to make.[31]
