Gaming Journalism Is Over

The gaming press declares that gamers are dead. But they are the ones who are becoming obsolete.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sounds like good career advice, to me.

one thing for sure is that with exemptions the gaming press are no longer one of us, they brought this on themselves with their lack of professional standards and conduct, disrespecting their audience and claiming moral superiority.

They got caught out and now they are in damage control mode trying to place the blame elsewhere.
They are desperately playing cards that a cornered sociopath would play. Unfortunately for them this is 2014 and we are no longer the dark ages. Their moves, motivation, and goals are too transparent.
Great that you mention them claiming moral superiority because it really highlights some of the hypocrisy.

They are the plague of the gaming community . I have never seen such stupidity in my life .

Not only them, but the whole SJW scene that was trying to sh*t up the gaming is shaking in fear right now and using every pathetic tactic they can think of.

For instance, after some a-hole (not associated himself with Gamergate in any way FYI) tweeted disgusting child porn pictures to Anita, she published the account's username on her Twitter, basically encouraging people to check it out for themselves.

And Anthony Burch (ex Destructoid writer, writer of Borderlands 2) exploded to Gamergate supporters by saying that we enable and legalize harrasment by encouraging usage of CP pics to harrass others. Which completely ignores the fact that we were the ones who were mass reporting that account to both Twitter and FBI while Anita was trying to exploit the situation by turning it into "LOOK AT ME! I'M THE VICTIM" by using disgusting child abuse in her favor.

And if these people have become this petty and pathetic, we can basically assume that their asses are on fire.

They have the means to spread BS everywhere and they are doing so to deflect attention away from their lack of integrity & skill.

Gaming "JOURNALISM" never began.. Gaming news has rather been here the whole time..

Only the game news "industry" would attack its own customers so brazenly.

I mean McDonalds wouldn't change its menu to salads only and then start calling its customers stupid, ignorant fatties for almost unanimously protesting against the change.

Indeed, games journalism needs to grow up and join the real world. At present it seems half-stuck in a college social studies class.

To hell and be damned with these corrupt advertisement agencies that pretend to be journalists.

Seems they are rustled that I would rather go watch a video to get an idea of what a game is like.

This is why Giant Bomb are one of the best, they have recognised the potential of video uploads and they do quick looks for games injecting their personalities to make an entertaining and enjoyable viewing.

Rather than basing their score on their advertisement income.
