Game journalism...sounds so professional doesn't it? And all it is is paid advertising. Lulz.
And it's questionable how much bang for the buck publishers are getting.
Journalists let you know games are in the works, tell you release dates, serve you trailers, write you previews, and ultimately tell you whether or not to buy the game.
What percentage of gamers do you think hang out on messageboards like this? GTAV sold, what, 22 million copies? Kotaku, a standard games journalist, has 17 million unique visitors per month. Blues has, what, a few hundred regular posters?
We're the minority.
