    I'm genuinely interested to know if you've actually thought about this for yourself, and come up stumped. Or if you just don't care, and believe the question rhetorical?

    What utter nonsense - you remember no such thing, since I'd never say anything so overtly idiotic!

    The majority of the posts I write are positive, about games I'm enjoying.

    As far as I can tell, you're suggesting that I'm lying or insincere. Neither is true.

    You are such a nitwit.

    My complaint about E3 was major publishers' offering dated, tired presentations of sequels, in ugly, bombastic shows. If that happens at Rezzed, then yes, I'll certainly...

    I'm not sure a sentence has made less sense. What is your complaint here? That the gaming site RPS covered the gaming show E3 with articles about games, as well as articles discussing the event...

    To be completely clear about this, RPS pays attention to games because we're interested to write about them, or we believe our readers will be interested in reading about them. That's pretty much it....

    Quite a few people have said they don't care about indie. This is a statement I've found really rather strange. Not having a publisher doesn't strike me as such a massive distinction that the entire...

    Yes, you're absolutely right - I am guilty of that.

    Thank you everyone who's said positive and constructively negative things. It's very much appreciated, and taken on board.

    One thing that does seem to be revealed here (by a few, not most) is a peculiar narcissism when it comes to desired content.

    A little grumble back at you

    Right, so here's a thing.

    A repeated refrain on these forums is to claim that RPS is not, in some form, As Good As It Used To Be. Generally these claims tend to centre around our no longer posting...
