"No Cheering In The Press Box" & Other Rules Games Journalism Needs

GamePro: "Today at QuakeCon, developers speaking on a "Building Blockbusters" panel took issue with "stone-faced" games journalists at product demos, as if the absence of emotional displays in a journalist is somehow a bad thing. Sports journalists never cheer during ballgames -- so why should we?"

The story is too old to be commented.

For panels like at E3, not everyone in the audience would be a journalist. Seats not taken by a journalist could be given to an employee, third party developer, friend/family member of an employee, etc.

That's not to say all journalists are "stone faced" though since I'm sure some do cheer at announcements.
