Life Outside The Cliques

Adam from Awesome Games writes: 'During my fledgling first year as a vehemently dedicated writer, I’ve encountered a number of unexplainable cliques in the industry; blurring the ever thinning lines that once separated supposed independent video game journalists from members of publishers’ PR. These groups of PR people and journalists regularly interact with each other over Twitter and at events, and seem to have more than a mere working relationship. They take turns to rub each others egos in a public domain and ensure that both parties benefit from their seemingly perfect pact: the journalist covers the game, the publisher gets the exposure. But there’s a deep, underlying problem with this type of cosy relationship.' (Industry)
