    Ditto ^

    For those that look surprised I just say the games I play are often like interactive books, good stories that keep your brain active (I tend not to mention the shoot them in the face games, no need to give them ammunition for their ignorance)

    TBH the only ones that have ever been surpised I game or even own a PS3 have been by mates kids.

    Edit: Oh and don't worry Dave, gaming would be well down on the list of things to judge you on :)

    Having just read this - https://storify.com/brett_douville/extending-the-branch - I not sure I agree with my comment here that it's all a bunch of kids...

    As a 48 year old starting gaming on Pong and Space Invaders when 11 years old I agree with this and would never deny being a gamer due to the behaviour of others

    I would have been in the same camp as you, thinking it's just a load of per-pubestent teens venting their angst and that it would just blow over so i didn't give much attention to these so called "gamers".

    But like ajfsound I'm starting to doubt my first assessment, normally something like the attacks first mentioned in the opening of this Bit-Tech article would have quietened down by now, but that doesn't seem to be the case, in fact the accusations seem to be gathering more evidence of something untowards going on in the upper echelons of the gaming press.

    The following article seems to be saying there is some secret mailing list, now i don't agree with the premiss of the article that some gaming journalists are shaping industry-wide attitudes, far from it.

    Exposed: The Secret Mailing List of the Gaming Journalism Elite
    Like i said i don't agree with the conclusion of the above article, am i missing something or being naive ?
