Alex Lifschitz

Alex Lifschitz, is the son of David Lifschitz, a Gehr Group executive. [1]

Game of Fear describes him as Zoe Quinn's boyfriend, during late February of 2015, when they both met Zachary Jason for dinner at Van Shabu, a Dorchester sushi joint. It also means that a week before Gjoni's "The Zoe Post."

Pre-Gamergate Controversies

March 16, 2014, at Critical Proximity, Alex Lifschitz held a talk called "The Treachery of Games." [2] Where he stated that "Depression Quest was more valid than any other mere video game could ever hope to be."

'I view creators, of not just games but all media, as cultural carographers, with a duty of "praising their maps" falling to you, the critics. Not just for their presentation and legibility, nor their format, but for their accuracy, and as the proverb goes:"The best way to learn about the journey ahead is to ask someone who's just returning from it." Except this industry, this readership, this consumer demographic, we demand knowledge of the route but shun knowledge of the journey. We want to muzzle your experience and call it "journalist impartiality."' [Alex uses air quotes whilst saying those two words.] 'Let's be perfectly clear: impartiality is bullshit.'

Role in Gamergate
