Daily reminder that game journalism is rotten to the core
Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn games.Make your own damn…
Everyone loves a good story.
Especially when it’s about someone they might be vaguely in contact with through one means or another. Someone they dislike, hell a good gossip story on someone they like.
We’ve all evolved to sit around the fire in caves and talk about heroes and villains, and…
You have to differ from a game and an interactive experience. You can enjoy it, but games need challenge if you want it to be part of art.
But muuuuuum I want my visual communication projects to be classed as games so they will sell!
Then you’re gonna have to make them emit more emotion, dear.
"I HAVE A DREAM"
That one day that every gamer in this industry will control their own destiny.
A hobby of Action not journalism!
Ruled by Strength not SJWs!
Where the games change to suit the gamers!
Not the other way around!
Where fun and happiness are back where they belong!
6 years ago, I imagined a future where games had reached a status, that there would be tabloid articles about them.
And here we are, much worse off than I could ever anticipate in the wildest of my dreams. The quality and integrity of games journalism is at an all-time low. It was never good to begin with, but the recent catastrophes makes me want to puke. Gaming journalism as a whole seems to be sick, most editors trying to out-art each others in their reviews and articles. Constantly over-analysing to uncover that hidden little gem of self-reflection they so desperately need. Noone bothering about the general state of the industry (except for one guy, if you follow me you know who), or how the customers and players can be potentially hurt by some of the popular trends.
tl;dr: Game journalism needs to step it the fuck up.
