I think Mass Effect 2 is the best case scenario for this kind of thing.

It was great because Ryan is fantastic at talking about movies. Mad knowledge, good taste, and says intelligent things about movies without sounding pretentious. His guest spots on Screened podcasts were top notch as well. Ryan on movies is better than Ryan on games.

The problem is not many seem to be able to do romance stories well, or in an interesting manner.

It's all cookie cutter, hearts aflutter saccharine cute shit. The story almost always deals with the beginning, "honeymoon" phase of a relationship. My favorite romance stories don't follow those tropes. Like say the movies Blue Valentine and 500 Days of Summer, or the novel Fight Club (which I consider to be a love story between the unnamed narrator and Marla Singer).

Dark Souls and Journey for the way they handle multiplayer.

No surprise that a lot of you commenters are unable to communicate your views in a manner consistent with that of an adult. Being angry at the mere existence of this article is especially confusing to me. Argh what is this click bait that I feel like is beneath me yet here I am taking the bait!!! Good stuff Klepick.

While I don't find the content of the article offensive by any means, and these women are obviously entitled to these opinions; this is an article with an agenda dressed up like a news article. That's why I have a problem with it.

I guess I don't see where this is trying to pass itself off as news. To me it is very clearly labeled as 8 womens' reactions to a recent event in the gaming industry.

See the little text just above the headline? It says "Giant Bomb News". That means everything this guy (and others) writes, whether it be stuff like THQ's and Atari's bankruptcy, in-depth interviews with the guys who made The Walking Dead, or this editorial opinion piece are all listed under news even when stuff like the editorials and interviews isn't. If there was another category called "Giant Bomb Editorials" or "Giant Bomb Opinions," then I think there would be less complaints about this thing.

Ok, could you link to some examples?

This article for one. The initial one he made on the Dead Island statue and how it's sexist. And every other article he wrote about sexism in the industry (#1reasonwhy, the E3 Booth Babes). Barely any of those can be considered news, for they come off more as opinion pieces and "calls to action," if you will.

I see your point, and sure for the sake of accuracy having a separate opinion/editorial section wouldn't be a bad idea. Having said that, I highly doubt all this vitriol from people would magically vanish if this were explicitly labeled an opinion piece.

Of course, I'm a gamer.

I might not buy any of them right away, but I'm still excited and ready for that new new. Console advancements are a big part of what drive the whole industry forward, and this cycle has gone on long enough.
