More video game news sites must place a spotlight on the misogynistic abuse that could drive women from the industry, a developer has demanded.
Brianna Wu, who said she faced death threats after speaking out, said the sites could help change the industry's culture.
A debate is raging in the sector about claims of corrupt relationships between some developers and reviewers.
But it has also regularly veered into the issues of feminism and misogyny.
"Every woman I know is terrified that what happened to me will happen to them next. And this is a true campaign of terror on women in the field," she told BBC News.
Ms Wu fled her home on Friday 10 October after graphic sexual threats were made against her.
The next day, she shared screenshots of tweets from one user who had threatened to murder her and her family, and had posted her home address to prove they knew where she lived.
The abuse came after she shared pictures on Twitter mocking players with sexist attitudes, who had used the Twitter hashtag GamerGate.
'Drive women out'
Her latest comments coincide with Ada Lovelace Day, an annual event celebrating women's feats in technology and science.
Ms Wu, head of development at games company Giant Spacekat, also said that internet services needed to do more to help police trace those who posted abuse.
"As it currently is, when crimes occur, law enforcement frequently cannot locate the people that are doing it," she said.
"We need to get more serious as a culture about making it possible for law enforcement to act in very serious situations like this.
"GamerGate could very seriously drive most women out of the industry. I realise that's a very strong statement and I absolutely mean it. I don't know a single woman in this field who is not asking herself if she wants to stay.
Ms Wu's experience was similar to those of games reviewer Anita Sarkeesian and developer Zoe Quinn, who were also on the receiving end of abuse.
Allegations about Ms Quinn's personal relationships with journalists were presented as evidence of "possible corruption" in the industry.
Ms Sarkeesian was hounded after releasing the latest in a series of video blogs that criticised bestselling games for propagating sexist stereotypes.
