I try to remain cynical of guys like Jim Sterling, but it’s hard not to agree with this. Especially that bit at the end about it selling regardless.
I actually really like Jim, because he tends to be one of the few gaming “journalists” that calls out publishers on their bullshit. He’s crude and harsh, but usually honest.
It’s a nice contrast to Jonathan Holmes, who is almost romantic about games and always seems so optimistic.
Most gaming journalism seems to just regurgitate press releases, and I appreciate Dtoid’s writers because they really go above and beyond that.
