Cheating in Gaming

This is a great article about cheating in videogames and looks at a specific user, John in Canada (represent!). No, its not me.

A few of the commenters take the writer to task about his sympathetic view of the subject. I thought it was balanced portrayal. It laid out the facts and let the reader decide.

Some time ago I railed against the dearth of good journalism in gaming, the rah-rah press release article with the skeptical "..will it live up to the hype? Only time will tell." at the end to salvage what shred of the writer's credibility was left.

Kudos to Stephen Totilo for a piece of real journalism in the video game industry, a somewhat rare sight.
