The Big Discussion: Should Journalists Contribute to Developer Kickstarters? (GamingSurvival)

Late today Tim Schafer revealed that Double Fine and 2 Player Productions would be starting a Kickstarter fund to help cover the costs of developing a new point-and-click adventure game along with documentary videos covering the process. Immediately fans jumped on board and began to invest in the development of this title. As of writing, the Kickstarter has received just under $250, 000. It is quite clear that the gaming community is interested in this project and willing to help support it financially. Of course, many video game journalists fall into this category of fans that are willing to financially aid the development of a new game. But being journalists, does contributing to this Kickstarter create a conflict of interest? (2 Player Productions, Double Fine, PC, Tim Schafer)

Who would invest in point and click? Prolly the worst, most outdated genre. In my opinion of course.
