The best litmus test for situations like these is to see which side is most open to criticism and discussion. At this point all of the video game "journalism" sites actively refuse any discussion. The side that doesn't let the other get a word in is often the one who is hiding something. I'll continue to support GB by being a subscriber, but only because of this one fact that few recognize; gaming "journalism" has ALWAYS BEEN and WILL ALWAYS BE a fucking joke. Any pro GamerGate persons actions are ultimately futile. You're trying to fix a structure that was built from the ground up on bullshit. Giant bomb is a media website with fun personalities that I like, I hold no delusions of fairness or ethics of it or any website like it.
I agree and would also like to point out these proponents of ethics, seem to be the same ones demanding objective reviews with zero opinion. Like old magazine reviews where graphics, game play and story were reviewed separately. What is the point a review with no opinion.
