I have also been deemed overqualified because of my degree, I don't care if I am, give me the job!

Sorry but this seems like a pointless article. Other websites already covered this yesterday and it just comes off as an attempt to create controversy.

Why have so many publications thrown themselves in front of the gamergate bus? Supporting antiGG has made so many places look bad, now we have to add GB to that list, why??? Why support Alex giving 5 star reviews to his friends (Jazzpunk)

Sometimes games are good and deserve 5 stars, shocking.

I want a friend named Jazzpunk. Maybe a dog?

Jazzpunk is a great dog name!

@vinny: Thanks for the reply Vinny, it's great that you are answering these questions. For the record Shooter: The Big Shooter was my favourite 360 game of 2007.

So here's a question to you pro gamer gate people.

Even if games journalism was the hot bed of corruption you think it is, so what?

Whats the worst thing that can happen?

Excellent point. This isn't the actual news people, this is videogames. Dumb, stupid videogames.

@vinny Yo Vinny, I've heard some people hating on journalists for taking free swag at events. I don't see the problem with journalists getting free stuff at events, free stuff is great and I know I could trust myself to not be bias just because I got a t-shirt from the developer.

Do you think the problem here is that if people see you taking the free stuff then they won't trust you if you ever write about the game? Wondering what you'd think if you saw a journalist friend receive free stuff.

Nice write-up Jeff, it will be interesting to see how GG people will respond now that they have heard your side.
