Op Ed

Forbes - The Catch 22 Of Video Game Journalism [Updated].
"Hype. It’s all about the hype. Many critics of game journalism have complained that reviews are skewed by pressure from publishers or from relationships between press and developers. I’ve been told off the record that this pressure very much exists at many of the video game publications out there, but each tries very diligently to maintain a barrier between editorial and marketing. The larger the outlet, the less this sort of pressure matters. The smaller, and the more specialized, the more this pressure has an impact."

Interesting perspective from Double Fine, which I guess is a "mid-sized" developer

Similarly unimportant when it comes to moving the needle on sales was the traditional gaming press. Bailey said when he first arrived at Double Fine, one of his big misconceptions was that the press would have a huge impact on sales. Even with the company's Double Fine Presents publishing service, Bailey had expected that simply including these other games in Double Fine's press list would help them get a lot more traction and exposure, but that didn't pan out.
