Gamergate is really starting to tick me off now. It's been around far too long. It's the same fucking argument, day in, day out. It's half of my twitter feed most of the day.
They're crying that it's "about ethics in games journalism"
You want ethics in game journalists? Fuck, what about actual news and journalists? You think gaming media is this huge conglomerate that can be regulated? Are you out of your fucking minds?
Do what the rest of us do. Think for yourself. Multiple sources at all times. If one says "IT'S AWESOME" and two of them say "Oh, could be better" and one says "Pretty much shit", don't take the "best" answer and then be disappointed that 1 out of 4 review sites misled you.
Gaming review sites are nothing more that extremely popular blogs when it comes down to it. None get any backing from government or any kind of media source. Their only way of staying afloat is advertisements, or - surprise fucking surprise - endorsements.
Someone, somewhere will bend a rule.
Sling your shit as far away from me as possible, please.
