    There were. Hopefully some sites are quietly taking that stuff on board behind the scenes. But no site can be seen to be publicly going along with anything GG suggested, lest they give out the...

    It's not just that though. People are constantly claiming that games journalism is worse than others and holding up other journalists as examples of what gaming journos should strive for. GG think it...

    And if they were actually boycotting sites on their blacklist uniformly, then maybe, if they are big enough, they might start having an effect. They're clearly not though, as they quite obviously...

    Yeah, but under GG rules I can't tell my editor or I risk him being compelled to announce it to everyone.



    Are you constantly seeing disclosures in the national press, or on TV news, or in...

    If you want to point me at the places where you're arguing for higher standards in the national press I'd be up for reading that.

    Works if you write for yourself or freelance. Not so much if you're on staff and you're on news that day. Your editor says "get a story up about the new Assassins Creed trailer" then you do it. It's...

    Absolutely, I'm fairly sure Future have one and that their writers are held to it.

    Because we also give that pass to practically every other journalist? I'd be interested in any examples of publications that you think actually live up to that code 100%. It's good as something...

    No. But on one side you have primarily journalists who have their real names in the public domain and whose career and livelihood is dependant upon public perception of them. And on the other you...

    It isn't. You're asking for standards *higher* than those expected from people in these areas. There's nothing expressly wrong with that, but the GG demands are for ethical standards as tight as...

    Right, but what's to say they won't think about it some more and change their mind back again? Why is the debate over at this point, but not the previous point? Why are GGers allowed to lobby and...

    You don't negotiate with terrorists. That's the reason you won't see any established journos trying to actually engage with GG. Because they don't want to send the message that the horrendous tactics...

    Step one: define objective measures for the notion of 'friendship'.

    Once we've solved that one it's easy. If you're 50% friend level or more you can't review games by that publisher. If you're 80%...

    That's a fair point. But how come that logic didn't apply before they made the statement? When they had thought about it and decided it was okay for the writer to do news and previews for Ubi games...

    Other mods were combatants in those threads too, is it ridiculous that they weren't 'fired'?

    It's theoretically fine if one or two journos are taking bungs. No-one reads just one review, unless it's the aforementioned "reviewer who has my tastes I trust". Anomalies stick out. That's why I...

    I really enjoyed it, Spader is always wonderfully watchable, and shockingly dark in places (the 'adoption' agency).
