The people here at Giant Bomb definitely aren't. They need to stop referring to themselves as such, and stop hiding behind "Well the definition of journalism is so vague these days".
To be clear, the GB staff have already said, on multiple occasions, that they are not journalists, and should not be considered as such.
That gets a bit muddled when they're involved in the "Games Journalism Hunger Games" panel, and when pretty much all of their contemporaries refer to themselves as such.
To be fair, I think many of the articles that Patrick writes are closer to the idea of journalism that people have in mind, and there are very few people out there consistently writing like him (besides the occasional gaming blog piece). The rest of the crew has stated multiple times that they don't consider themselves journalists in the traditional sense, but the term is the closest they get to a traditional job description.
To answer the OP question, I want journalism about the people and the stories behind the games. Pieces like this or this. I believe there are fascinating stories to be told about almost every game, released or not... Real interviews, not scheduled or filtered through the PR department of big companies.
