It's becoming clearer by the day that "gaming journalism" is still an industry run out of Mom's basement--nothing but man-children, playing grown-up w/o knowing how to tie their ties.

No standards. No professionalism. No reason to take any of it seriously.

BTW, Malstrom's quote "stuck on stupid" is great.

I don't even care if a reviewer doesn't like the Wii and the DS or their games....


But you would think you could expect some sort of professionalism from these reviewers....at least be neutral in your write-ups...you don't have to like the system to write a decent review (which constitutes writing a review that doesn't have excess of bias towards or against a product)....just don't look like a complete ass when you do write it.

Nobody here is claiming that we hate a person who is against our opinions. Far from it. I mean, what are we...Commies?

All we are asking is that when you are forced to write a review of a product you hate because of an immature attitude towards the system it uses, try to be fair and neutral about it....or just quit because you obviously can't man up and just grow up.

I am a Pakistani.....my name is Dan....how hard is that? (Don't ask about the 101...apparantely there are more of me out there....)

Every time I went on IGN, I would cringe when seeing Daemon's name as the reviewer, because I knew whatever the game was, it was going to be trashed.


Since he hated the Wii all along, none of his reviews can even be taken as legitimate at this point; another reviewer who really shouldn't have had such a job in the first place. I swear, it is all unraveling right before our eyes. It is no longer debatable that most gaming media hates the Wii with an unusual passion.


And Hillary is the same goof that went on an on about how GTA4 was a masterpiece. I really thought he was a woman. It is a stereotype that women are emotional and talk about feelings, but when I was reading that last April, I thought, "They should never let this woman review a game like this. All Hillary is talking about is her feelings about the game"


I''m not a bigot or a sexist, but that was what I was thinking.



Leatherhat on July 6th, 2012 3pm. Vita sales:"3 mil for COD 2 mil for AC. Maybe more. "  thehusbo on July 6th, 2012 5pm. Vita sales:"5 mil for COD 2.2 mil for AC."

"But the other systems are moving the industry forward with Fallout 3, Dead Space, The Orange Box, Modern Warfare, God of War III, Uncharted, Mass Effect, Alan Wake..."DH

 

So 4 sequels, an unreleased game and a couple of new IPs are moving the industry forward? It's a shame sales don't back up his argument. This clown has no right using the word industry. He knows fuck all about it.

Why is it that in every field except gaming the journalist actually knows about "the industry"? Even the weatherman can go into great detail when pressed.

I think it's time we all accept that these people are not journalists. They are just game critics who are lucky enough to play games for a living. Other than that they are no different to you or me.



Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

@pakidan - 100% agree. If a journalist prefer Xbox over Wii that's cool but acting like internet trolling teenagers is pathetic.

Eh, I got reviews from guys that had similar gushing. It seemed their need to prove hardcore gaming is better led them to review like that.

Also, what Wii ign games did he review?



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

Daemon comes across like a complete idiot. I swear to God, I don't know how he makes it up a flight of stairs.
