Video Game Warzone #31: Who's Really A Game Journalist And Who's Not?

Torrence Davis of The Bitbag writes, "On todays show we debate journalism, what it is and what it's not. Can bloggers be journalists? Can a journalist be a blogger? Do you need a degree in journalism to become a journalist? We tackle all these questions and come up with some definitive answers. Also on the show:

* What 5 games would you take to the grave with you? (Commenters please list yours!)
* PS3 SFIV selling out like crazy.
* We talk about the possibility of Final Fantasy XIII being delayed til 2011 and what Square SHOULD do.
* Killzone 2 demo not up to par with the review build? It's unanimous!
* Wii games at comic con.
* Ghostbusters looks like an animated movie
* and much much more!"

let me say that though I never reported a HHG article, I was one of the people that said the grammar in some of his articles was so bad I would never read one of his articles again. I still look at a "journalist" that can't write a grammatically correct article as being similiar to a mechanic that can't fix cars. It's just so centric to the entire process of being a journalist IMO.

But my five games to take to the grave are:
Final Fantasy III (U.S)
Little Big Planet (Replay Value)
Guardian Heroes
Castlevania Symphony of the Night.

Downloading the show now and I can't wait to hear what I hope will be a significant improvement now that the show uses teamspeak.

1 luv and God bless.

My 5 games I'd take to the grave:

1.Metal Gear Solid 3
2.Metal Gear Solid 4
3.Shadow of the Colossus
4.God of War 2
5.Jak 2

and just for kicks, I'll name 5 more games:

- Donkey Kong Country 2
- Sypro 3
- Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
- Gran Turismo 3

soxfan20053628d ago (Edited 3628d ago )

My 5 games:

1)Donkey Kong
3)Outrun 2 - Xbox version. (Only because it also includes the original arcade version as well as the sequel)
4)Thunder Force III - Sega Genesis (Best horizontal shooter ever)
5)Ms. Pac Man

Amazing that 3 of my 5 favorite games all came out in the same year - 1981. Best year ever for video games. Other 1981 games include Frogger, Centipede, Tempest, and Gorf. Most of these games are still around today - 28 years later, either still being produced in original form, or having created legendary characters.

tell them you pay .50 for sneakers"

Really? Dawg, you are off the plantation.

50 bucks compared to .50 cents? And remember, you don't have to buy anything in Home. You don't have to use Home. So many podcasters out there continue to overlook that. I don't have to pay money to not use home. I don't even use home. I play games online. Really getting old having people act like the things PSN charges you for are things you HAVE to buy.

You guys opened saying Home is lame and then went on to bish about having to pay for outfits. Here's a tip: Don't use it!

tordavis3627d ago

I know you don't HAVE to pay for stuff on Home but I still think it's funny that Sony is charging for a beta. Don't take that statement too serious bro.

Consoldtobots3627d ago

I think anyone can be a journalist, you just have to follow the rules of fairplay for a story. AS IN REPORTING BOTH SIDES, just facts, no opinions.

Under that CRITERIA every blogger out there FAILS, even you.
