I'm extremely fed up with the reckless reporting by gaming journalists about Uwe Boll and Michael Bay. I don't even remember how it all started, yet the gaming press continues to obsessively cover it like the Paparazzi. The Boll and Bay drama has been mentioned frequently on every gaming podcast I listen to (including IGN, EGM, and 1UP) and as of this writing on 5/3 at 1pm CST it's on Joystiq's front page.
Although Uwe Boll makes terrible movies based on video games, all of this is nothing more than Hollywood trash and is irrelevant to the gaming industry. I don't understand why all this has been covered so closely.
Remember that being a gamer is heavily scrutinized by ignorant politicians, lawyers, parents, and other organizations and they're on a mission to destroy what we believe in. We cannot be distracted by insignificant drama like Boll vs. Bay and then turn a blind eye to a real threat to our freedom to game.
We as gamers are extremely intelligent. Let's stop following news that isn't.
