As we all know, video games are doomed.
Embrace the Inevitable.
Welcome to Ruin Jam 2014.
What is Ruin Jam?
Ruin Jam is a game jam celebrating the nonexistent demise of video games, inspired by a lot of current events and a certain blog post. It's open to anyone and everyone who has been, is being, or plans to be accused of ruining the games industry. All Ruiners are welcome to contribute to the death of video games, provided that they adhere to the spirit of the jam.

@legobutts-senpai has a post running this down in more detail.
What Games are Welcome?
Any games that contribute to the downfall of video games are good candidates for submission. They can include items from the list above, or generally just be anything off the beaten path. Remember: different is bad, so go for that.
Since we'll all be equal in the apocalypse, this is not a ranked jam.
Please avoid making any references to actual people. This jam is intended to lampoon a cultural attitude, not bully, harass, or libel. Likewise, slurs and bigoted content are not welcome here. Unironically anti-SJ games will be rejected at my discretion because what is wrong with you.
EDIT: If you are making a game that contains graphic sexual, violent, or otherwise potentially distressing/triggering content, please consider adding a content warning on or near your title screen.
Who's That Cutie With the Fiddle?
Meet Nero, a genderfluid Social Justice Pirate! They're the official mascot of Ruin Jam; please feel free to write them into your game if you want.
