Shameful

Over the past week or so, I’ve been trying to make an argument that there are some good videogames publications out there that do try to improve the sector. This is not an article about them. - PSLS (Culture, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

The video game industry is incestuous.

Nah. They're all pedophiles. Eldery pedophiles. Elderly, gimped pedophiles. Who only speak in broken English and are technically mentally-retarded.

Either that or it's all just one big not-so-subtle circle-jerk.

Time to add MCV to my "sites to ignore" list.

Really, this is ridiculous and embarrassing.

You gotta know who to listen to and who to ignore when it comes to gaming sites.

hope abandoned games journalism. when all the trolls are relieved of their duties only then will our beloved industry move forward. until then i'll continue to judge games based on my own opinions. not even sure why these people are needed anyway.

Love the article just goes to show how the industry REALLY works

I'm thinking that the moment Florence went too far was when he named Wainright. That kind of thing affects her working relationship with a lot of different companies. If you're going to call out obvious bias in the industry, that's one thing, but it's quite another when you go off naming names. It puts every published piece this person has ever done under a microscope, and now everything she's ever published will be called into question.

It's not as if these people have lessened the blow any by saying "I'm sure she isn't." after throwing around these kinds of accusations, either.

Personally, I think Florence was a little unprofessional when calling this out. Next time if he wants to write an article about bias in the games journalism industry, perhaps leave the names out of it?

You're probably right about leaving names out of it but i'm thinking it was the actions of that person that ultimately led him to write that article and name drop.

Still, was an entertaining read and a bit of an eye opener.
