Is the HipHopGamer an amateur journalist or an entertainer? Understanding that difference is crucial to the future of video-game journalism.
yeh most journalist nowdays are entertainers reading the teleprompters the corporate elite give em... Thats why the ones who do give us the real deal should be supported. Hgg for all his faults is as much a game 'journalist' as anyone at the likes of kotaku or gamespot.... Promoting rather than reviewing creating hype spin and bs rather than giving us real game news. On second thought hgg is maybe a step up from those particular sites but only a small one.
<deleted> wrong post
a game comes out that game gives a site money to advertise their game than the game ends up being not good get a 6/10 than a good reviewer get's fired! honest reviews problem is now a days on almost every site people who are reviewing games are THE BIGGEST FANBOYS. Go to GT and listen to SHANE and you will see what i mean anyone who disagrees with shane on anything is gone for sure right now epicbattlecry guys are the best along with HHP i know i know he raps lol but atleast he gives the news to us as a gamer sometimes he overhypes thing like we all do
its the previews i will give you an example ign the guy who does wwe game reviews is a huge fan on his previews he builds the game up like a 10/10 than boom every thing he praises the game about is the same reason he hates the game ALL WE WOULD LIKE IS REPORT ON EVERYTHING ON EQUAL BASES: let me ask one simple question if RROD was a ps3/wii problem do you think it would be treated as with xbox360. it was oh MS is giving 3 years of warranty everything is fine and all. call me a fanboy or disagree all you want! if any other device was as faulted as xbox360 was in its first 3 and half years that company would most likely would be black listed but being american media and MS's money it was never that big of an issue BE FAIR TO EACH CONSOLE AS A GAMING REPORTER YOUR JOB IS TO COVER NOT TO HYPE/COVER A COMPANY/BE A FANBOY etc,,,, you know i was talking to one of my friends he said something very simple yet true THE WAY GAME COMPANIES TREAT US AND WHAT THEY GET AWAY WITH IS AMAZING LFD1 in 12 months lfd2 RE5 dlc on disk but yet pay $5 we buy games but yet if we sell themm to friends or trade them we loose extra 9.99 and i know its not that much money on some dlc's part but still some dlc is worth the price most dlc should be free
Kinda agree with you. But... reading your comment is a pain in the ass.
Your comment was stupid and you know it. . Every once and awhile everyone says something stupid, right now that person is you.
lawl, using his/her own words!
LOL. Gaming journalism is Dead. BTW, I like the NEW avatar XD XD XD
A journalist is someone like HHG in backwards world.
It doesn't take much, and for the most part I find alot of them to be very bias toward one console or another. Or they don't really report facts as much as rumors. And like football they are throwing pretty girls that don't really know much out there to talk about games. Gaming Journalist=Hype Machines
no such thing as journalism in this territory.
their out there, it's just hard too pick out amongst all the crap.
Someone NOT LIKE PATCHER
What defines game journalism? A lack of research + flamebait titles to attract hits. Gaming journalism - oxymoron
In all seriousness they bow down to hype, money, and the xbox brand(this gen), they hate on the PC and act like it does not exist anymore, they think that GT5 had more than 2 or 3 delays, rate a game high because of the dev that made it(bethesda and rockstar), they promote too much, most dont even play the whole game before reviewing, they dont like chuck norris(made that one up) and most dont do there research, and they dont even do there job well enough to get paid.
Fuck you, I love Chuck Norris ... and America.
At this point? having a blog and getting your submissions approved on N4G. Standards are very low now days.
this is the 2nd article ive seen on N4G today asking whether or not HHG is a journalist - lolz. The guy must be dong something right.
About to say the same fucking thing lol. Wanna-be, coppy-cat, rip-off merchant websites smell like pooey from a mile away.
And other things should but all that it doesnt need to be said pointing the obvious is already to dam boring for me to care. Many gaming journalists are obvious attention whores that want more visits or their website each day.And its not that the internet is not the only to blame there´s also gaming magazines that started this score based reviews after all. The casuals started all this unfornetly, true gamers play plenty of games in world that some games deserve more attention than others but it should stop enjoying the less good ones in the first place.But game reviews are the complete opposite.
Appealing to the masses, posting cosplay and sexual titles for hits.
Being able to overhype unfinished games is probably a key criteria these days...
A real game journalist? The guy from iWaggle. Who's with me?
Hey, I waggle too, but the Judge was very clear that I don't waggle in public anymore; and certainly not in front of a news camera. ;)
A gaming journalist to me are the guys over at www.cheatcc.com. hands down the most informative well written, justified reviews for ps3 games. i say ps3 games because those are the only ones i read and i agree with a lot of their final scores.
Hey bitmob, why don't you be a little more introspective in regards of who is or isn't a journalist? Putting names of people more popular than you in something you do is also sensationalist.
Bias, lack of respect to the gamers etc.
CLOSE THE THREAD. This one had a better image. Oh and it was first. http://n4g.com/news/666304/...
