I love your article. I agree 100%

Thanks! The main one that annoys me is knowing everything about games. I know that's an odd thing for a journalist to say, but I do miss that 'mystery' you used to get with new games.

No disrespect... But couldn't you just, I dunno, NOT read every little update that is released about a new game you're looking forward to?

@nitrox, it isn't just a case of reading everything that comes out or skipping videos. Back in the day i wouldn't know anything about a game and you'd have to find out by talking to friends ect. Some of this is due to being s child and not having choice, but now it can be hard to avoid reading news about a game through headlines.

Final Fnatsy VI, could you really play as General Leo??? Did Shadow have more dreams than 5???
Looks at the internet: No and no......
Finding another game to play in disappointment...

The truth is not for yourself to find.

It's the people who use it - which usually turns them into, "Net ganstas."

Let me guess. The conclusion of your article is available for $3.99, right? A little trick you picked up after playing Prince of Persia, sell the ending separately?
Don't leave your readers searching the page for more article.

1. Tell them what you're going to tell them.
2. Tell them
3. Tell them what you told them.

It's not that hard.

On topic: the only bit that bugs me is patches; there were 11 for LBP when I bought it, and the Move patch for Heavy Rain was about the same size as an episode of Qore. But, I can deal with it if they make the game run better or add a feature or two.

"When I was in school the only way of getting the latest news on gaming was buying a good ol’ fashioned magazine."
Yup, I agree with the guy who wrote this article. I hate now how you pay for a game you download and you still need the internet to play the game..if you don't the game will turn into the demo version of it. I HATE ONLINE EVERYTHING NOW! IT SUCKS! Charging people money for stuff we just unlocked the old-fashioned way back in the day before the PS3/360...WTF is going on!? We pay for unlockable content now and the only thing we unlock today in videogames are some achievement saying I killed a hundred dudes in a row.
