Game Journalists Fail in Their Duty, Side with Publishers Instead of Gamers Over Diablo 3 Fiasco

Posted by | May 18, 2012

There’s a strange reflex in the gaming journalism community, a reaction we have seen before. For some reason, some unfathomable reason, the journalists of our little hobby are quick to side with the publishers and game-makers over the very people who buy the games and read the news stories. When the community calls out a game for its failures, like the ending of Mass Effect 3 or the broken launch of Diablo III, the journalists lash out, not at the companies who pushed a defective product out the door, but at the gamers who bought the digital lemon. Here’s an article about this interesting trend. Cinema Blend has the story.

    It’s strange. Gaming journalism relies on gamers to survive, but yet when the gamers and the game companies are at odds, the journalists line up to defend the massive publishing companies. You’d think there’s some kind of behind the back dealing going on here.
