Oh absolutely. It's not even that rare. But honestly, after a game or two things calm down and the relationship continues. This industry has a short memory when it comes to that sort of thing, and everyone wants to start on a positive note for the next project.
This isn't a remark on Pitchford by the way, I didn't see any evidence of what you're claiming myself. I'm speaking in general terms.
Not really, I prefer reading stuff to listening to it. I do listen to This American Life, but that's mostly due to my wife being such a fan.
I think it's already happened, as most people who enjoy video games don't really interact with the more unseemly parts of the culture. It's not like that many adults are sitting there arguing over review scores, most just read about games, buy them and enjoy them. I already think the vast majority of people who play games are pretty well adjusted, no matter what the vocal minority would have you believe.
If you want a scary game, the first two Fatal Frame releases are absolute classics. If you don't like horror, you're not going to like them, because they're tense as hell. Some of my favorites, though.
I love trailers, and tend to watch them all. I love when one is edited very well. It's an art form.
I actually haven't done this yet, but I'll get it sorted tomorrow. I usually only need like 20 or 30 to get the job done. It's going to be tricky dealing with leftover since I'm trying to eat better, though!
Not many, honestly. It's just not my thing. Sometimes I'll see what's going on at Twitch when I'm in my Gear VR, but overall it's just not a scene I'm into.

Just give it time. The consumer version of the Oculus Rift is months off. We don't have a release date for the Vive yet. The Gear is a month off. If you're nervous I'd wait until everything is out, see which system has the most games you want to play, and then dive in. Wait for reviews and impressions. It's VERY early days in VR yet, and things are going to change rapidly.
Prune. I find it really relaxing, and it's such a great concept for a game.
