Is the Mainstream Media bad for Gaming?

Video games can no longer be considered children's toys or a passing fad, like the slinky. It seems that the games with which we grew up and still enjoy today are entering the mainstream of American culture. And kicking a little ass in the process.

In these days of the drive by media it's headlines first facts later. The Fox story on Mass Effect was a perfect example of bringing on people with no idea about a topic. Then afterwards having even more people sit around and talk about it based off the previous persons uniformed comments. It's sloppy but just realize that CBS, NBC, CNN, PMSBNC, ABC, all do this but with more important stories like the economy, war, and politics.

as much as i hate the fanboyism of evil zhuk....he does have a point. hype sells...if its music, movies, video games....once mainstream its "cool". hell, i bought into the SMG hype and it fell short imo. mainstream = lemmings. think for yourselves ppl.

We need an Evil Zhuk (PS3 fanboy I think?) to counter Zhuk (360 fanboy)

I would say that mainstream media is very unaware on how video games as a culture and as an industry are growing and changing into a way of life in our modern day and age.

i will agree with you there. and welcome back Daxx :D

however as ive learned with music once mainstream, the quality takes quite a hit. hopefully, which i dont ever seeing in this biz compared to music industry, the industry and quality as a whole doesnt take a hit.

I really believe that the mainstream media is bad for everything that has a voice or isn't what the good ole boys running media outlets want. So yes I do agree that Mainstream Media will do nothing but call video games senseless mindless killing sims. And they will not shed any light on the artistic role that video games have.
