There probably is corruption in game's journalism, it would be ridiculous to assume no one EVER accepted any kind of payment, offer, gift, or backrub for a positive review. I just don't give a shit.
What I do give a shit about is people being abusive to each other under the guise of anonymity. It's ridiculous, on both sides. I can't help but wonder how much of the vitriol is done by teenagers that will look back one day and say "Man, I was a real prick."
I sorta wish everyone would just sit down, not argue for a minute and unanimously agree that being a dick on the internet has never been cool. And when we see someone being a dick not to attack them but just say "Hey, you're kinda coming off as a douche." And if they continue, quit engaging. The more attention we give to people lashing out on the internet, the more they're going to do it. They're like stupid little yorkshire terriers, just running around barking nonstop. I think those dogs are dumb, I think a lot of internet based discussion is dumb. Ergo, the internet is puppies?
SHHHH DONT LET RORIE FIND OUT DEAR GOD
