    Didn't Modern Warfare have that airport level? It seems like they're doing the same type of stuff.

    It seems like most game journalists (and indeed popular media journalists in general) thrive on controversy and riling up arguments, legitimate or otherwise. I wouldn’t paint all of them under that (PlayStation Access and Outside X-Box has some fun videos) but you get websites like Kotaku and Polygon where every third article is a whiny speech about something they don’t like rather than serious game reporting or fun observations. A lot of the time it’s only to get clicks.

    Which is about survival. The problem is that as long as that's the economic reality of online media, anyone who doesn't put up clickbait will eventually go out of business.

    Maybe if they spent more time creating a group of game journalists with the skill and caliber of Jason Sheriver they wouldn’t need to.

    There are other people on Kotaku who are worth reading. Jason's the only one who does any investigative journalism is all.

    Thing is, with Kotaku specifically, they've never really shaken off enough of the Gawker style of writing articles.
