GamerGate 'must be condemned' - developer Zoe Quinn

Independent developer Zoe Quinn has been at the very centre of a controversy referred to as "GamerGate".

After a blog post detailing intimate details of her personal life was put online, she was subjected to abuse and threats to her safety - forcing her to leave home.

Some argue that GamerGate is about ethics in games journalism, and that it is bringing attention to "corruption" in the media - journalists too close to the people they write about.

But Ms Quinn told the BBC's technology reporter Dave Lee that big games companies must step in to do more to condemn the vitriolic nature of the GamerGate discussion.
