Op Ed

Total Biscuit - Why you shouldn't be excited - A look at games media's role in hype. Thanks Ant via HARDOCP.
TotalBiscuit brings you a discussion video on the games media's involvement in hype campaigns for unreleased or in-development titles and the negative impact it has on the industry.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Videogames Are For Everybody. Thanks nin.
There has been criticism, too, which has resulted in gamers claiming that we hate them. We don’t hate gamers. We are gamers. Numerous (often offensive and widely incoherent) attempts to provoke controversy and scandal about the relationship between game developers and the games press have resulted in some people saying that RPS should be destroyed. Perhaps unsurprisingly, we disagree with that proposition, and we’ll explain why we disagree in this article.

But, ultimately, what do movie journalists do that you guys feel games journalists don't, or vice versa? Lengthy articles about the portrayals of women and minorities and demands for equality? Check. Working closely with the studios? Check, though less closely for film because it's review based, not preview based, and reviews are much cheaper.

Actually, the internet is killing off the professional movie reviewer as well. People are leaving in droves or being laid off as a result of the collapse of print media. Movie-specific sites like Cinemablend and Slashfilm are picking up the slack. As a result, payment for movie reviews has fallen to a tenth of what it was pre-internet. Due to the long rich history and culture of movie reviewing, I feel the quality is still their despite this transition, but that's probably only got a generation before it resembles the game industry.

I agree. And, for that reason, many of the movie critics are freelancers with other jobs. They do it out of passion. But they solely review, they don't do much in the way of editorials.

Even then, though, movie specific sites are a smaller game, I believe, to more wider media sites. Things like AVClub. Rottentomatoes has a hand in this, too - no need to check Slashfilm every day when you can just get the headline from RT.
