Random Thought About Gaming “Journalism”


Notice I used the quotations. 

Now getting to my random thought of the day, I always hear people argue that some gaming bloggers or journalists are idiots. I tend to defend them sometimes, but MY GOD sometimes I see pointless articles destroying my RSS feed.

Lets look at what I saw, this morning.

  • 2 Articles about how they hate GameStop
  • 4 Articles on how Nintendo is going to fail
  • And 6 Articles on Battlefield 3 Vs Modern Warfare 3 and of course Battlefield 3 is going to win
And it’s like this day-to-day on these sites. Plenty of these articles can be solved with these responses.
2 Articles about how they hate GameStop.
  • If you hate is so much don’t shop there. Crisis Averted
4 Articles on how Nintendo is going to fail.
  • Really?….Nintendo failing…. Hmm wasn’t Nintendo doomed when:
    • They stayed with cartridges
    • Made a Toon Link
    • Didn’t follow the online trend
    • Didn’t have many FPS’s on their consoles
    • Used Motion Control on a major console
And 6 Articles on Battlefield 3 Vs Modern Warfare 3 and of course Battlefield 3 is going to win 
  • I’ll see you back to playing Call of Duty in a week
I know many of these article are written just for the hits, but seriously…… STFU.  Sometimes we need an article to make us think, or maybe laugh. I don’t want to be pissed every time my RRS feed gets full of your fanboy BS.
