The recent coverage of Cyberpunk 2077 has got me thinking about what it takes to be a professional journalist in today's gruelling videogame world. But after much thought, I believe I've found the perfect formula.

"Games and gamers are bigots" I was literally playing a like, 10 year old game the other day, and was flirting with dude npcs just because I could. Mind you, I never bother with the relationship crap in games. I can tell you how best to enchant an item in Skyrim, or how to get rich quick, still no idea how to get married.

@walentaz He is doing what he has bashed others for and not finding out who someone is or has done. I get the point of this video and agree with it in most parts but Pierce is a gaming journalist, has been writing for years on multiple platforms, has degrees in journalism and plays video games a lot. Quick glance at her social media or even a proper google would of solved that. Shat the bed on that one Drinker.

The problem is that this type of marxist woke ideology is being taught in schools across all industries. The feeble minded get easily influenced and adopt this ideology during their younger more impressionable years.

Oldschool journalist: Needs to know how the world works, needs good shoes to get from one event to another, needs a solid knowledge of the history of the subject, needs to be unbiased. Newschool journalist: Needs an internet connection with a shortcut to Wikipedia, needs a twitter account, needs strong feelings, needs to be part of an agenda in replacement of talent ... or actual knowledge of any sort.

I love how all of the former main stream media managed in just a few years to castrate and kill themselfs with pure incompetence. Gaming Journalism apart from a hand full of CSshowsrs... Completely garbage, every magazine that was big a few years back completely suicided itself. I mean, it is impressive how well they managed to put every person in they target group of and plummed their whole reputation in a bucket full of shit. And now they complain that nobody gives a shit about their opinion. Truely impressive, what gigantic idiots...

It's nice watching kotaku get closed, Game Informer getting downsized while the man who created it jumps ship, GameSpot and IGN fizzle out, PCGamer lose market share, and all the other games pubs slowly die. Rest in piece, you bullshit publications that killed the golden goose.

You're slowly becoming my favorite CSshowsr, my friend..

Hey, let's lock the entire world up for a year, pay people not to work, dictate every part of their lives and make them take an "injection" for a "thing" with a 99.98 survival rate. Journalists in 2020 : yup there's definitely nothing that needs to be looked into here!

Politicians and the media are masters of this and even have a word for it, "negative campaigning" basically circling the toilet bowl of propaganda, why tell people how good something or someone is when you can play at their emotions and tell people how bad something or someone is. CSshows is no different, hate videos about item X gets more likes than an honest review video about item X, just shows you how many people like being spoon fed a bowl of shit. Apparently free thinking is a "boomer" thing.

I used to ignore politics and happily enjoy watching football, a movie, or playing a game. I had no Idea how much political BS was going on until 2020 and saw that it was absolutely everywhere. Politics belong in the political arena not in entertainment. Mainly because politics are far from entertaining.

My friend. Be more specific. Its not just medieval europe. its medieval Poland. I am as white as the whitest mozzarella, yet the polish actually surpass me. I doubt these snowflakes would want to see the black represented as there is a very minute chance they could have been seen in that part of the world at that particular time: slaves. There are no records of black traders let alone anything else. Only darker skinned people would have been the Turks.

You know its funny anytime I make this argument there are people who say something like "it's just a game man don't take it too seriously". I look back at them and ask if that's the case then why did they need to change it, because if its just a game there would be no need to add this bullshit into it. If it doesn't matter to you why did you bother to tell me that or moreover why did you continue listening to the conversation. They always have nothing to say after that

Why the hell do people feel the need to insert politics, personal agendas, and their own biases into everything? Wouldn't the world be a better place if people just stopped doing that? Maybe since I am a white heterosexual male it all goes over my head. I don't know... Looking at video games from the past and comparing them to what they are today, it's seriously disheartening. Most things that actually made video games fun and enjoyable have been stripped for the sake that everything and everyone needs to be represented... for people who don't even play video games.

So, it´s like, reviewing a series after the first episode? Yeah, that´s really bad journalism... Oh wait, YOU can say what you want, right? Not a journalist, hmmmm Don´t get me wrong, I´m with you on this topic, even if I don´t like many interpretations people make out of it, like "fuck journalism" - yeah, THAT is a pretty good solution...

Water isn’t just overrepresented in video games. It’s overrepresented in the real world. More than 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in the stuff. Dry land gets only 30%! If you care about equity and social justice, you’ll agree that this is NOT FAIR and must be STOPPED.

Imagine being so stupid that you criticize games like witcher 3 for having an all white cast even though its in Poland where the entire population is white, but when games like ghost of Tsushima have a all asian cast, its good, its just racist to have criticism like this considering how white people cant have diverse games in there continent but everyone else can? i would rather watch cats (furry the movie) for a week than read articles like this an polygon or kotaku

I'm kinda glad I grew up reading actual, printed gaming newspapers, where actual gamers wrote real articles about their actual gaming experiences, could put it into context and comparison to the other products of the industry and even had their independency so they could write a negative review about a big title if it actually turned out to be bad.

It's not enough to not be a gamer. You must openly despise and antagonise gamers and all what they like. Now I know what you're thinking: "it's insane to hate your audience openly" What? You expected me to say anything else?

I started writing for PC Zone magazine back in the day because I was highly vocal about games on the forums, and ended up playing left 4 Dead (the very first one) with one of the writers, until I was offered a sort of internship (meant they didn't have to pay me, which was good because Future Publishing was in the process of strangling them out of existence through budget cuts), which eventually led to freelance work. This included not only reviewing games... but I once did a couple of two-page spreads for the magazine about level design, in which I had taught myself, over the course of one month, to make levels for Left 4 Dead 2 and documented the experience, before putting the end result on the magazine's demo disc. I guess I represent the last generation of actual game journalists who were actual game enthusiasts - I got the job through gaming, and now here I am, working on my own indie title. Because it was always gaming that mattered to me. Somehow I don't see the current crop of journalists following this path. They probably won't even end up in PR, as many of the older generation of journalists did, because who in their right mind would want them promoting a game?

I would consider myself somewhat of an activist. But ya know where I'm going to go? on the streets. To the voting poles. Talking to the community. Places where you can actually make a difference. I'm not going to waste time throwing a bunch of pretentious lectures into video games or movies or the comics I write because those are an escape from busting your ass fighting the good fight. The extremism of "woke" culture is an insult to everyone who is trying to make a difference because it undermines everything we are trying to achieve.

I'm confused where people get the notion that games journalists get paid heftily. I REQUEST anyone here who believes that to actually ask a freelance games journalist, or a games journalist for a small site about that. PLEASE DO. Even ALANAH freaking Pearce, former IGN, now writing for SANTA MONICA stated in one of her videos she worked for free for her first SIX MONTHS. Please, if you want to know ONE THING about games journalists, it's that there's not a lot of pay in the work.

to be honest, the "too much water" one was a valid critisim that was just worded poorly, what they meant was "The new plethora of pokemon is heavily based toward water types over others, which cause non-water pokemon players to get less out of the game." IIRC
