I think Brad ends up playing games he likes like NORMAL people do when they like something and their job isn't forcing them to move on the to next game to make new content for a website. For that reason I appreciate his passion. It's the same passion my 8 year old would bring to a Titanfall argument, because he plays that game every damn day and loves it. He's also really damn good at it.
Don't worry fellow parents, he's a well adjusted kid and does all his homework and piano practice before he can use game time.
By the way... Titanfall has made some SOLID improvements that are completely lost on these guys simply because they don't play it *now*.
I feel like the arguments *against* Destiny were born on the back of Jeff's passion. When that guy sees a flaw in something, he sure can single it out over... and over... and over... and over...
Sucks for people who want to play multiplayer... I joined a game in no time at all and got my ass handed to me. As an engineer I'd love to see a postmortem on this. There are some smart people that work there and if they didn't see this coming... what the heck is going on?

Q: If gamers have concerns about corruption in games media in the future, what do you think would be some better ways of pursuing the issue?
This is a giant thread and I just saw your topic after I posted... but I do have a suggestion for you. If you aren't monetarily or otherwise invested in how well a game publisher is doing, then I would simply try and decide for yourself which journalistic outlet isn't corrupt, then give them your patronage. If it isn't obvious, then the problem is likely unsolvable.
Shouldn't have run any articles about the topic in the first place. You've probably had that thought already. Though, I'm somewhat thankful GB was the first place I even heard about whateverthefuckthisis, because I've managed to avoid *most* of the junk surrounding it. Then I saw you running more stories about it and began to shake my head.
I can ask 100% of people I know, who are not from the Internet, and they would not have a CLUE what GamerGate is. Hell... I still barely know. This one fact... this ONE thing, tells me how ridiculous this all is. If people are being threatened over the Internet, that is something for the FBI to handle. NOT patrons of a videogame enthusiast site.
