Gameinsight Mindshare: Grand Theft Bribery

This month, our new contributor Jonathan Tung takes a very in-depth look at an increasingly disturbing trend in gaming journalism, where the line between advertising and honest reporting is becoming very hard to discern. (Dev, EA, Industry, PC, PS3, Square Enix, Tech, Xbox 360)

This is not a new thing has been happening for years. I don't trust any site that has ads for games on it when they review games. If you have an ad for a game on your site you have no right to be trusted for a game review plain and simple. Hence I will not be trusting a review of Gears of War when said site has Gears of War ads scattered around the website like a 2 year old decided to toss his peas all over the room. There are plenty of things you can advertise on a gaming site to make up some cash you don't need to take money for gaming companies.

While I do agree for most, if not all, of the bigger companies like IGN and Gamespot, there are the occasional individuals who do great and honest reviews regardless of advertising.
