This is an interesting article about the state of video game journalism. The author, Torrence Davis, talks about how the big game sites simply copy and paste articles and do not do any fact checking and references this recent event where major game sites were fooled by 4chan.
Now, I'm not sure an enema is required, but incidents such as that one, plus uncritical previews and questionable,"happy-happy" game reviews, call into question the impartiality of some sites.
Where do you get your game information? Do you read the big sites?
I would like to put together a list of good, small sites. Please add your comments and link to small sites with integrity.
I will get us started with Out Of Eight.
