This isn't meant to be a jab at MMORPG.com, just curious how they see themselves.
Is this basically a site that sticks to reviews as their only source of independant "news" and all the rest of the news are basically press releases by the gaming companies?
Or Does MMORPG.com see themselves now or in the future of becoming more than that? Not only a place to get reviews and consolodated press releases from the companies, but also a place of where independant journalism is as common as press releases, where stories are told without the corporate spin?
I realize that there are interviews that take place and that can be a good source of information and an example of independant journalism, but if you only ever ask for the Developers opinion you are going to get a slanted story.
There are many situations in the MMORPG world that are worthy of some journalistic attention, I would usually site SWG as an example, but I think the most deserving right now is Dark and Light.
I realize that at times something happens in a game such as SWG which in turns sparts an article that looks at the general principles behind it, and that is good, and I really am wondering if it is generrally the direction that MMORPG.com is moving in.
