Tokipost Gamer Debate: Journalist Comments

Some game journalists are very well known. So well known in fact, that when Kevin Pereira decided to become a gaming authority by posting a video of himself defending Too Human (Yes the word defending was used) people got on it. The question is, should journalists be doing this at all? (Culture, Halo 3, PS3, Too Human, Xbox 360)

Atleast not with games like Too Human
Why didn't they do this with haze or Lair? Why didn't they do it with MGS4 when the fanboys that don't even have the game were flaming it for the long cutscenes.

YES, journalists can defend games AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT FANBOYS TO BEGIN WITH.

Yup
Journalists should stay away from appearing bias and the rants over Too Human and Halo 3 (especially the Halo 3 rant) are just too much. I mean, sure give us a pe5rsoanl opinion, but make sure you base it as a personal opinion rather than trying to compare scores from other games or becoming a mega fanboy and telling others to "quit whining" even though you whine about the same things in other games.

Not saying they were bad games haze and Lair but maybe because Too Human was actually a good game. It's one thing to not like it but to go all out and over exaggerate how bad it is really is ashame. Review sites and gamers that never liked it to begin with are simply forcing it on people that it's a bad game just to hurt it's chances of making good sales and brand it a flop. Kevin did the right thing and sometimes it's good for people in his position to speak out against the review sites that unfairly rate games good and bad. Now the only people that complained cutscenes in MGS4 are people that played through the entire game and I haven't heard anybody yet complain about Too Human that played through the entire game. All of this comparison stuff is silly anyways and Too Human will be a good and successful I hope trilogy for 360.

sad part is maybe gaming is still being taken as joke

but one would think the parent companies would put a stop to it as it hurts their image... if viewers stop watching adam and kevin its g4tv that really suffers not microsoft...

as it is i hardly watch television, i download alot or buy my shows outside of LOST and Heroes....

as it is i stopped watching g4tv partly for their fanboism

i dont miss them and i'm sure they dont miss me

Why are they only defending xbox 360 titles? I mean, where were they when HAZE, LAIR, Heavenly Sword, and MGS4 was being trash by fanboys all over the net? That network is garbage, and I stop watching them about 3 years ago.

Journalism is dead in all shapes and forms. Monetary value attributed to words by advertisement has rendered all "professional" opinions irrelevant. Adam Sessler and Kevin Pereira are tools plain and simple.

Show me the money!!!
Well, its all about the money, and its really starting to show. Kevin is an Xbox fanboy, everybody knows that, I dont even think he has a PS3. But what really ticks me off is why they(g4) defend any 360 game while a lot of Ps3 games have been the recieving end of injustice in gaming reviews. Too human is an average game, IGN and gameinformer(to name a few), certainly thinks so, but X-play praised the game like its one of the best games ever. "It has a bad story, sound,and camera, and quirky gameplay, but its fun", what the hell is that? And kevin suddenly blasts Gamespot for giving it a low score, noting how their rating system is flawed;well it not a mystery,Gamespot's rating system IS flawed. Resistance(PS3)=8.5 - Perfect Dark(Xbox360)=9, just to set an example.Who defended Ratchet& clank and Legend of Zelda when they gave it undeserving scores? G4 was TV for gamers, but now I just dont know anymore.
