A Word on Gaming Journalism

A quote from this Massively article.

"I've even been in contact with an insider who is scared of the risks CCP is taking with the jobs of over 600 employees in four countries, scared enough to leak internal documents and emails."

I have a lot of respect for the people at Massively, as they take their jobs as journalists very seriously. I would love to see more sites like this, where people choose to report because they want to be a part of the journalistic crowd, rather than write reviews simply because they want to make the connections in the gaming industry to get a job. I like this kind of journalism. There's a story behind public press releases that many "game journalists" are afraid to look for in the event they could lose their chance at getting into the industry.
