Here's an interesting Twitter feed (https://storify.com/Pharniel/john-rogers-on-gg-pt-ii). Some of it is more anti-#GG than many of you will like, but it's an interesting fame of reference, and it...

It remains to be proven that she needs to cite the Let's Play posters. She cites the games; Fair Use may dictate that she doesn't need to cite beyond that.
