Kotaku And The Problem With Inflammatory Headlines In Video Game Blogging

Forbes - This article over at Kotaku is focused almost entirely on the different mindset gamers and game developers have in Japan compared to the West when it comes to things like PC gaming, cloud computing, and so forth.

The story is too old to be commented.

They do it for the hits. I'm sure they know half their headlines are ridiculous. It's part of the reason you don't see their stories on this site anymore unless another site is reporting their stupidity.

That is the problem with sensationalism, and the hunt for hits. The real tragedy is ultimately that the truth finds itself lost in a sea of drama. I personally haven't taken Kotaku seriously in years.

Kotaku is the perfect example of a site eWhoring for web hits!

Video Game Industry is a multi Billion dollar industry but all we seem to get is Bullchip flaimbait articles.

take all that money you make from advertisement and bribe someone at Valve to give you REAL information on the Next Half Life game and we would FORGIVE and love you forever but until then Kotaku SUCKS!

Yellow journalism has been around for quite a long time. It is not exclusive to video games, either. It sucks either way.

Kotaku got banned from N4G?

Edit: Guess I misread the first comment. Thought he was saying Kotaku got banned. And yes, HHG did get banned, which makes me wonder why Kotaku could continue to not be.

Didn't HipHopGamer? That guy was like a TMZ reporter.

I haven't checked out anything Kotaku had to say for ablut 6 years now. Ever since they tried the hardest to put the PS3 down.

Wow, Forbes wrote this? That's awesome. Kotaku needs to be called out for that bullsh*t.

I never understood the negativity on N4G towards Kotaku until that headline. I get it now.

Kotaku is a piece of garbage! This is why i dont click on there articles anymore! And they will lose credibility amongst developers and the industry as a whole, those attention shoes bastards

Thank you, Forbes. Great read and so true.

It's a device to get hits that many people who post articles on N4G use, most likely learned from Kotaku.
