Video Game Journalism: A Look at Some of the Horse S**t

The video game journalism scandal ‘Doritosgate’ last year showed us that the industry has some serious issue, but it didn’t cover half of it with the industry consumed by rumours, a saturated market, dependency on ratings and more. Has anything changed and can anything even be done to change it?

The infamous Dan Hsu gears review springs to mind.
He lists things that would destroy any other games metacritic, and gives it a 10/10 at the end.

Good riddance Dan.

Control issues, A.I. problems, bad dialogue and storytelling, linear levels, online lag and limited modes.

Game Trailers is owned by Spike and spike currently operates as part of MTV Networks and Owned by Viacom.

Yet Geoff is still the guy who agrees to follow his superior's orders.

"I was just doing my job" only goes so far.

The only thing worse than bad games journalism is when someone critiques journalism and paints that as journalism.

Toadsanime1214d ago

I'm really not sure how to sensibly counter that. I suppose trying to become a games journalist whilst making a post criticizing game journalism on a game site is a bit... odd.

Still, it's fine for people to criticize something they're a part of. Shame I'm likely a hypocrite but it's nice to point the issues out anyway.

I'm not saying I'm in the right here or that I'm any better -- I'm not.

Not too different from actual news journalists. Imagine how many of them are just as phony.
