Yes, Journalists Write Articles "For Clicks," So Get Over It

Those who complain bitterly about journalists writing articles that focus on trending topics are in desperate need of a reality check.

People are just sour that the Wii U and Xbox One are under performing in comparison to the PS4 and their previous consoles, so they complain about sites, personally attack people and place blame on everything except the system they are in support of. It's a defensive tactic, nothing more.

When the Wii U isn't selling it's "I play games, not sales"
When the Wii U is selling they're all "The Wii U is getting back into the race"
When the Xbox 720 was suppose to be a powerhouse it was "The Xbox One is going to dominate with photo realism, Microsoft's rich"
When the Xbox One was found to be inferior it's "Only gameplay and fun factor matters, not graphics"

It's been quite hilarious to watch whenever a glimmer of hope appears for either system. Then they get mad and again blame everyone else.

This sums it up perfectly.

I agrer with ya but it's the same for the PS4 too. "Pfft halo isn't even that good" "OMG DESTINY GOTY" or "Nintendo is too kiddy for me" to "LBP 3 is going to be great". That and back when the PS3 wasn't so hot sales didn't matter but now that the PS4 is PS2 incarnate it's all about sales. It's all silly to me. Wii U, PS4 and XBOX ONE all have fantastic games and more coming.

"Journalist" is definitely a generous term in this case.

I get it but that shows the journalists have their priorities in the wrong place. I get it more clicks means more money but integrity and reporting accurate stories with appropriate titles goes a long way with gaining notariaty and respect (which could build a loyal fanbase)

You're half right. Clicks mean more money.

No clicks mean nobody is reading.

I wish it wasn't that way, but it honestly is. There are sites that everybody knows go too far, but they get a bunch of hits every day for doing exactly what you're saying they shouldn't. And if they didn't? Nobody would have ever heard of them to talk about it anyway.

I can't name a single site that consistently writes clever, thought-provoking articles and reviews. They're probably out there, but I can't name them.

what a joke. Get over it? Why dont journalists get over it!?

If you write clickbait, you are a joke and not a real journalist. Plain and simple.

I dont have to settle for mediocrity , i can mostly ignore the content of articles with flamebait titles too , like i will right there

Exactly what I was going to say. Get Over it? Why? I don't have to and don't want to. Such a thought is extremely mediocre and complacent.
