If gamespot were 100% honest with us – game journalism is broken

There is a huge problem in the video game journalism profession. It´s been bad for years, but now it´s worse than ever before .

I cant for the life of me understand why anybody in this day and age still cares for or needs a review scores. I mean with all the videos we get on the net along with all the info. Its easy to know if you're going to like a game or not. I don't need somebody elses opinion of it to know.

"All I use gaming sites for is to find out what's going on with the games im interested in."

Exactly, that's exactly what I use them for too.

Pretty much. Some of the outlandish claims that have been inferred by some people in regards to the performance capabilities of the PS4, "The Cloud," Xbox One CPU, and more have clearly shown that either some of them have no idea what they're doing or some of them are just looking for fanboy clicks. You can see it now with DX12 and some already claiming that DX12 will give games a 50% boost, when in reality, the 50% figure is merely comparing DX12's performance gains over it's predecessor, DX11. All I use gaming sites for is to find out what's going on with the games im interested in.

i know its meant to be a joke, but it was a really bad video. why pretend to be jeff gertsmann?

lots of outlandish claims about getting paid for reviews, is there any evidence? developers paying for advertisements? developers develop games, maybe he meant the publishers who handle the advertisements.

user reviews? not on sites like metacritic. its full of the games fans(not fanboys) or haters who post them so its either stupid,y high or stupidly low. dude also hating on big/popular games. some of those games are that good. cod is an annual release but it doesnt stop that game from being any good.

dont waste your time watching this video.
