I'd like editorial staff who aren't immediately put on the defensive when their profession is called into question. In recent days there have been some extremely valid points regarding impartiality of the gaming press. Some of the community outpourings have been heard (albeit tentatively) by some, but others are actively deriding the concept. I'm speaking of tongue-in-cheek comments of "I did X am I still impartial?". It reeks of insecurity in the face of a paradigm shift and it feels incredibly regressive.
The mantle of journalism to either find a place or vanish completely from games media. It's a title that's tacked on and removed when appropriate. You can't try to persuade your audience, claim you adhere to standards, then suddenly throw your hands up in the air and go "but we're not journalists!" when shit hits the fan. That's straight up disingenuous.
Shifting the focus of games media back to games. I don't need opinion pieces of politically charged issues splattered all over gaming sites. I honestly don't need to hear how terrible some of the community is because scandal number #2524443 happened overnight. What I need is a competent, functioning body of professionals who understand their audience, improve their own practice and remain as close to objectivity as possible.
