Game Journalism Site Offers Critique of Video Game Journalists

GameDaily Biz has an interesting article up about how video game journalists give shame to the word "journalism", and offers critiques on how the wannabes in the lucrative industry need to improve on virtually every aspect of their writing. Chris Buffa, the editorial writer, comes short of saying that all these pseudo-journalists have never taken a writing course in their life. Here's a quote:

"Being rejected and having to rewrite are just part of the process, so instead of shying away from hateful eyes, always welcome advice from your peers, because if it were up to most writers, they'd be award-winning novelists their very first try. But it usually takes a few different pairs of eyes to tell people just how bad they are."The article has a different tone than Buffa's original piece, Why Videogame Journalism Sucks, but sounds as condescending, leading me to believe that Buffa just wants to re-package his opinions to strike some more controversy and get noticed for his radical stance.
