Kotaku is a video game-focused blog and one of the most important publications involved with GamerGate. Kotaku writer Nathan Grayson and his relationship with Zoe Quinn served as the starting point for GamerGate. Editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo defended Grayson's relationship with Quinn, and since then numerous articles have been written which attack GamerGate as a sexist movement, including their own participation in the Gamers are Dead effort. In addition, Kotaku writers Alex Rubens and Laura Dale are part of the GameJournoPros mailing list.
