You don't let someone referee a match who is clearly invested in one of the teams. It's as simple as that. Wikipedia are aware that their articles are often tainted by the ideological battleground...

Ah the wonders of globalization. Trying to sell to a global public is alright, but trying to buy from a global public is the worst crime ever. Except maybe if you're the one selling, then it's OK to...

Yeah Renegade was awesome. It came out a couple of months before BF1942 and did some of the things better than BF.
I'm terribly sorry for you and as much as I dislike responding with a quote, I find Epicurus to be quite fitting in this situation:
“Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come,...

I found "Matter" and "Excession" to be quite enjoyable. Matter has a bit of a rushed and unsatisfactory ending, but the build-up makes up for it. Excession deals with the philosophical gap between...

I watched a beta press build playthrough posted by some of the guys on their forums and I find the game to be very lackluster. You can simply outrun the enemies, so there is really no need for...

I concur, Red Alert 2 was one of my favorites for its added over-the-top'ness. Red Alert 3 was quite decent too and one of the last installments that felt C&C'ish. Oh and tiberian sun.

Very true, seeing people murder each other for their fairly tales makes it sometimes very hard to not lose faith in humanity. But then I look to the other side and marvel at the beautiful things they...

I dunno, the old Guild Wars forums that I visited were full of people congratulating each other for their well thought out skill sets and team builds.
More recently I've seen people cheering each...

If you don't want to be like this then don't. I'd say we're perfectly able to discuss these things within the border that have been outlined to us, without "slinging shit" at each other. It seems to...
One problem does not devaluate another. Were this a science or politics forum, people would happily discuss the same problems. So no, it's not that games journalists get singled out, this just...

I agree, Kad did not deserve this ban. I know that ultimately it is not for me to decide, but he's been neither abusive nor disrespectful, merely passionate about what he said. Some of his criticism...

I for once regret people being shoved into tiny little neat drawers, because other people refuse to observe an issue from different perspectives or are unable to differentiate between several issues....
Certainly it is debatable whether people were justifiably disappointed for being confronted with a lazy deus ex machina red-green-and-blue ending that completely undid all of the carefully chosen...

Give a child a knife and it will cut itself. I have only seen twitter bring out the worst in people. Maybe it's due to its unfortunate functionality (limited text length, any psycho can follow your...

I'm insulting people because I don't have much to contribute to a discussion about harassment, since it's pretty self-evident that it's a bad thing, but would rather talk about the other issues at...

They will and they are.
What is happening right now is the typical escalation of a social conflict that has no means of being defused. PEGIDA is only the symptom of a much larger and complex...

Does nobody else find it quite ironic that one thread gets closed and three new ones pop up?
Straw man argument, because nobody on these forums ever agreed to any kind of harassment. This has...

A good editor would offer a simple choice really, either disclose or reject the article.
Finally some common sense! I've said this a few months ago and it's been my mantra since. It's the only...

I'd consider a conflict of interest a "damn good reason" and if the editor doesn't agree, then he's no good editor at all.
For some people striving for honesty and transparency is self-evident, for others it's a punishment.

If you suspect a conflict of interest and don't want to disclose, write about something else. It's not like there is a shortage of possible stories out there. Gaming has become a huge cosmos.
Codes of conduct are actually a very common thing, from nursing services to teachers and most other workplaces. It's what being a professional is all about. Besides if you claim any sort of moral or...

GW2 was a neat game but couldn't hold a candle to GW1. I'd much rather waste my time playing the original again.
Maybe I said it poorly, I never said that games reviewing was science. But the gaming press seems to aspire for greater things than simple simply reviews, like social responsibilities, moral...
