Journalists bashing videogames and gaming for the sake of sensationalist press is becoming a worrying trend that must be thrilling the world's anti-videogame activists as they look to tie gaming to the behaviour of dangerously imbalanced sociopaths.

Well - if you are in the industry - yes. Other industries had similar issues. All it proves is that the games reporting industry was very very naive to think that they will get away with it, and that they are really very immature and unprofessional with no ethics.
