              Of the three main newspapers, NYT is the only one that's independently owned. WaPo is owned by Bezos and WSJ is owned by Murdoch, but the NYT is owned by its own company.

        January 20th, 2016 was a horrid day for any real man. When Trump got in and all of his chuds cheered, thinking they had won and we had lost. Man I still get chills thinking about how we watched all the progress Obama made, become undone by that orange asshole. Real men were fearful for their families, while alt right incels with no one to love were cheering for the destruction of earth.
        Truth is I'm just making this post now because I'm still so fucking relieved. We fucking made it men. Through the worst years of our democracy, we overcame his hate and ignorance. But we lost a lot of good people in the process. Never forget that the 45th president killed more of his citizens than of all wars combined thanks to his mismanagement of covid.

          This on some real shit. We truly don't know how much of a bullet we dodged. That crazy fucker was planning on staying in office till one of his sons was deemed racist and insane enough to take over. I'm just glad we get to rub it in their hateful faces now. I hope more can be down to silence them so we can avoid this kind of uprising again. Might be a little too extreme for some, but I think employers should do super deep background checks to ensure ex-trumpers can never get a job again. I also hope that restraunts and other places will grow a spine and refuse to serve anyone still stupid enough to wear maga hats or any other alt right merchandise.
          Reminder if you see anyone still wearing Trump merch, harass them non violently

      Washington Post maybe is doing a good move actually. Why report on an industry that is such a bad shape that it’s becoming irrelevant to gamers themselves. People quit gaming (or drastically reduce their time gaming) on the daily. The industry is in shambles and only thing keeping it afloat is american lefty wales that have their grips on politics in the industry. We need to let it di. 50% of the game companies publishers and developers alike simply need to die.

      Aside from "lol WaPo/NYT", who fucking cares? I don't play games to pretend I'm some mature, cultured adult, I play to relax and enjoy some silly time in front of a screen. Why should I give a fuck about any "news outlet" covering games in any fashion? If they want to shit on it, so what? The only "news" in relation to games I care about is upcoming titles/release dates and that's about it. If I really want to deep dive in "gamer culture" I'll just go to Ganker or some other forum.

          Yes, idiot, obviously they do. I know no one on this board knows how investing works, but no CEO would ever choose investment financing over actual revenue. At best it’s an alternative to debt financing which may or may not be more attractive depending on the tax incentives involved, but it still involves selling an obligation to someone else.

        Manga mostly isn't made for everyone either. On one level, you oftentimes need to have an understanding for japanese culture or customs to understand parts of the story. On the other hand, most manga are very self referential and have in-jokes and tropes that enhance the experience but would fly over your head if you've never read them before. Manga is very much made for manga fans.

            That's because manga is a fucking shit format. Weekly trash is mostly silly romcom stuff, monthly shit gets 12 chapters a year and the other shit gets like 6-4 chapters a year. It's "decades old" because it takes fucking decades to finish a story. There's probably a good many LNs or even WNs that are promising, but in the sea of shit they have to get officially licenced first and then the releases are slow as molasses. It's not that different when you compare it with comics though. When was the last time a new comic book hero was created that people liked and not just some fucking replacement or reboot of an existing one.

            Actually all modern day American comic books only appeal and are marketing towards 35 to 40+ adult men. There's absolutely no room for any newcomers to start reading comics. Never has been.

      I actually agree. The idea of a video game "culture" is silly. it's literally just staring at the screen while sitting on your fat ass, moving the mouse or joystick around. That's not a culture. Shit, that's a lack of one. The only good thing about vidya is they can be a way for people to get together and have some fun.

        To be fair gaining popularity on YouTube/twitch in 2023 has to do more with having tits and a hot tub than brains. I've made a few decent videos and it's impossible to get eyeballs on them.

          Out of curiosity YT/Twitch anon, I've spent the past couple of years deciding if I'm going to get into the game or not and realize its pretty depressing on the surface. FOr what its worth, keep going - its hard to get eyeballs without either properly gently caressing the algorithm AND having time and an expansion strategy. If you just want to do it for fun, don 't worry about the metrics too much - its not a measure of the quality of video. It may just be that it didn't have a human face in the fucking YT screenshot or that some other person who is way the fuck more popular than you already talked about something kinda sorta similar and everyone went to his viewpoint first and got satisfied; its an uphill battle.

          I'm contemplating on ways to make some alternative platforms (open stuff - look into PeerTube and OwnCast ) and looking to see if people will actually support "anti streamer trend" content , but still just keep doing what you want. If you're trying to monetize as fast ass possible then run for the algo like everyone else but as you said , it still doesn't guarantee anything and takes time You'll probably be happier not all that.

It was meant to "counter propaganda", but it just ended up being a slush fund squandered on giving people's friends make-work jobs where they write garbage "AND THAT'S A GOOD THING" style articles. They're smug cosmopolitans who laid off laborers for the good old days being gone and never coming back, not realizing that their own good old days are passing them by and never really existed in the first place.

        To elaborate, essentially I recovered from the pit of despair entirely destroying their expectations, and through the experience of being subjected to their techniques learnt them, flipped the chessboard, and by my lonesome self mass harassed the shitbag glowies back thereby proving my superiority to the shitty CIA glowies. I am superior to the CIA by myself, I am literally above their techniques now.

          This isn't specific to Naughty Dog, but I prefer the company doesn't completely fucking burn out its devs, because on the off chance they make a good game and I'd like to see a sequel to it, that sequel will immediately be in jeopardy because half the team is contracted and won't be recalled because they might ask for more money or didn't submit to crunch, while others just leave the company altogether because their working conditions weren't worth the money. I know the current meme is that no developer does anything and they're all just morons, pajeets, women, gays and trannies, but there's far too many game series I like that got killed off because publisher/executive bullshit resulted in a subpar game, which the suits then concluded meant nobody actually likes the games anymore.

    Meanwhile what's his name tiddyhater mc problematic is still working at Bloomberg and will continue to polish resetera/kotaku quality turds through the sheen of his important journalism post.

    That said, I don't know enough about WP's specific games related journalism (and I'm a bit skeptical they'd do much more that didn't align with BUY WHATEVER BEZOS DEMANDS DID YOU HEAR NEW WORLD JUST PATCHED) but if "the papers of record" and others that do investigative journalism don't cover gaming, then almost all "journalism" will come from the typical bias of standard game sites which either fall into advertorials or Kotaku-style "we have a pre-aligned ideological lens we apply to everything about gaming" with the later seen as the "serious" ones. We don't want that.

    The ability to cover stuff like unionization, crunch, studio management and exploitation, shitty monetization, mega publisher fuckery etc.. is useful and can't be left up to those who are going to ignore all that stuff in favor of another article on "why Hogwarts Legacy had a "problematic" producer that should probably be fired and the game will be a hateful piece of crap because of it" . Actual investigative journalism, even when there is a slight if known bias, is useful vs poorly sourced garbage.

        >500k died from the coronavirus in ONE year? Lol who cares
        So why do Republicans obsess over "black crime statistics" yet downplay COVID, when the homicide rate in America is 5 per 100k, averaging to 15k deaths a year, while the COVID mortality rate is 200 per 100k and killed over 500k Americans in one year? Why do they say "lol only 1%" when it comes to COVID when homicides don't even kill .01% of the population each year?

        Also, why do conservatives call the COVID death statistics fake because they’re from the government but the FBI crime statistics 100% real when they’re also from the government? Why is the FBI to be trusted when it comes to black crime statistics, but when the FBI says that right wing terrorism is the greatest threat to America, actually, they can't be trusted?

          and yet the actual total death rate remained unchanged from the previous several years average, with no excess deaths to account for these coronavirus deaths, while cancer, heart disease, and the flu virtually disappeared. it really was a miracle.

            It really shows in that they stopped reporting organizing general crime stats by demographics and will label random latinos as white men just to desperately get those white crime numbers up. The media will also only report mass shootings when a white guy does it and none of the mass black shooters that happen nearly daily. They also redefined mass shootings to exclude gangs for this reason.

                I know there are exceptions. I actually heard about 3 different Asian mass shooters, all from Cali. Not sure which one you're talking about but I have been wondering if one of them was motivated by being anti-Chinese. It's kinda embarrassing that the media reports them all as "Asian Americans" and not seem to know that the Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Koreans are all different and tend to really hate each other.

                NTA, but a lot of gaming journos hang out there and it has a clear influence on their personality and worldview, and those people go on to greatly influence the gaming community at large, even places like Ganker which claims to hate journos but follows along with anything they say. Jason will turn on a dev for not diversifying their medieval Euro setting enough, or not having a union, and put up some flimsy bullshit shield about it, and Ganker and redditors and all the rest actually buy into it.

                I wouldn't exactly say Ganker always follows journalists' BS. Id say a large portion of that are shitposters or legit shills. The gaming community at large, I can understand.

      To be honest, I PRAY AND HOPE for the day that video games are associated only with children/manchildren again. That stigma alone will filter out most people currently shitting up the space. Video games becoming popular and also being taken more seriously as (potential) art has ruined it. It's made things way more corporatized on one hand, and has become dominated by pretentious asshats who sniff their own farts and are offended by every little thing on the other.

        I'm okay with people shrieking about being offended to be honest as long as devs arent caving in to their demands. That was what made like like MK, Bloodrayne, and GTA special. Call me a sophomoric edgelord but it was a net positive that there were games that shocked people away and made the hobby controversial at times.

    You know what's great about all these lay offs? They probably kept all the low skill workers like the janitors because their contribution to the company is clear as day. It's a valuable service and if anyone is getting the boot, it's gonna be one of the overpaid lackeys who failed to prove their worth.

      Not always. I work for a huge globohomo company that continues to flood it's executive levels with retarded fake jobs while gutting the essential parts. Our customers bitch and moan that service and product quality is nosediving while prices rise, but they still come back.

      I suppose certain industries in America have reached their inflicfion point though.

    How recently is "fairly recently"? Because the video game industry eclipsed the film industry a decade ago in terms of overall revenue. Typical New Yorkers with their head up their own asses.

    I'm frankly amazed it hasn't happened sooner. Like who needs 500 pop culture sites posting the exact same blurb whenever anything happens or is announced? News trickles down to social media and places like Ganker instantly anyway, and I've never needed more than trailers, screenshots, developer pedigree and occasional user reviews/scores when deciding what to buy. I don't think I've made use of gaming "journalism" since I stopped visiting GameSpot mid 2000s.

        China is fucking insane and is probably going to go through a very violent insurrection soon.

        Russia's just weird. Every Russian I've talked to is weird, and dark. The relationship between the government and its people is one with undeserved trust, though.

Although I am not actually predicting some gigantic collapsing event, just everything very shitty for a long while before things start to get better.

            See

            Jokes on normies. I'm already on the bottom of the wagie rung and am used to living a garbage life in a globalized, neo-lib world.

            We had a guy who recently graduated law school working with us while looking for entry level jobs in his field and he lasted about a month before breaking and moving back to his regional town to live with his parents and "evaluate his next move"

            I've been living the bottom feeder life for years. It amazes me how bad with money normies are. People my age used to freak out when they found out I own my own apartment. Then they doubly freaked out when they found out it's in a very violent, run down part of the city. Now, post COVID, they are having panic attacks because they can't even find places to rent, let alone afford, in decent parts of the city and claiming they will have to move back with their parents in their 30s.

              They're likely the same kind to defend the speculation in housing with the old "if you can pay it why not?/if it's worth the price it's no problem", stupid as they are they didn't realize or even consider the effects it could had and only now see as it comes back to bite them in the ass and filter them.

                Yes and no. They believe in rent control etc etc...while also supporting open borders to "support the economy". They want cheaper services...while not realising that they need to pay for the infrastructure to support millions of pajeets and south east asians, and that there are so many places to go around.

    The staff list for Game Informer magazine is 15, and that's counting the graphic designers, video editor, web content. It does not take 20 people to do what they were doing.

    I feel like this is a great example of what nepotism inevitably leads to.

    Journalists used to cover wars and actual scandals and exposed corruption. Now they're all circlejerking about whatever gets them the most clicks and getting their dickhead friends and roommates jobs that they aren't qualified for. We went from motherfuckers risking life and limb to bring shit like the Panama papers to light, to "HERES WHY GAYMERS ARE MEAN FOR NOT BUYING GAME." Nuke it all and start the fuck over.
