So currently I happen to be doing a paper for University which revolves around gaming! I’m asking myself what traditional media outlets (Newspapers and TV) think about gaming and how they portray it. Good topic but it got me thinking about actual gaming media.
We all know about our IGN’s and our Gamespots and I wanted to ask you all what you think of them? Being technically in the gaming media myself they are of course very valuable to me as lots of news is passed around and without these media giants I wouldn’t be able to keep up to date with news. However some people see these organisations as tainted, corrupted by bribery for good review scores and misinformation towards the consumer. That is of course an understandable view as there has been a lot of corruption within the gaming media industry as of late and I do think some serious changes need to be made in order to combat this.
So what do you all think about the gaming media in general? let me know in the comments! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
