The idiots complaining about the 8 out of 10 from Eurogamer for BF3 and Uncharted 3 should take pause for thought.

A good look at the difficulties in today's gaming journalism.

Good article, I never knew game reviewers had it that hard.

Thanks! Everyone seems to think "they get to play games for a living, yay!", but when gaming is your job, it's not as fun.

I've been criticizing many of these points myself for a while now, as someone who's been writing reviews for years. And I don't even have to deal with half of the BS in this article (review copies, worrying about metacritic, etc.) but you can see that they're there, and that they're problems.

This industry needs some transparency and openness, but the problem is that the consumer base has already built up a set of expectations so much that it'd be difficult to truly change things.
