If the gaming industry collapsed, Google would be best poised to take advantage. They have the capital, and the only likely survivor of the collapse, Microsoft, would be too damaged and its reputation too marred, to put up any sort of fight.

Or the opposite could happen. If game corps start losing money, then investors may not be willing to invest in upstarts and they'd never get off the ground.
And credibility only matters if people know, care, and have somewhere else to take their business. If one of those three doesn't happen then the old structure remains in place, damaged, but still there.

Your words speak the truth. It kind of makes me understand why the corporations and journalists think of the consumers as sheep. It makes me sad. I'd almost say It'd be nice to see a second collapse of the gaming industry just to wash away all the corruption into a different market and hope for a new, better, and less corrupt reprisal but I am not so callous as to disregard the hardships that would be felt by thousands of honest hardworking people inside an industry with a jaded reputation.

The big reviewers, such as IGN and Kotaku are in contracts with the major corps. The corps are required to offer early versions of the games for reviews. So embargoes are out.
And yes, people will buy games they like. but how many gamers read reviews before purchase? and how many of those would be turned off of a game because of a bad review?
Could journalists destroy the industry? not likely. But they can severely damage the corps bottom line
User avatar #101 - drsandshark (12/07/2014) [-]
I did not know that. That's.... disturbing that those two entities are so intertwined and I'll have to think on that.
Reviews only have power as long as they maintain credibility. If they constantly use unethical methods to hype games that are undeserving of it, they'll eventually lose credibility. Reviews are very much like the product they're. If they really are unfit for consumption, they won't last or be gainful.
I'll have to theorize a bit on the state of the games industry but wouldn't hurting the games industry be a good thing? The demand for games is rising if anything, and if the old guard that is in place right now loses a customers, won't that allow for newer upstarts to join into the market at a higher lever, thereby increasing the competitiveness of the industry, making gaming better for us all?

At the end of the day, game journalists can damage the games industry pretty badly. These journalists write reviews on games that people who might buy the game read. If the journalists write a bad review, then fewer people will buy the game, damaging profit margins. Done over time, this can seriously damage a company.
User avatar #95 - drsandshark (12/07/2014) [-]
But at the end of the day people, will buy what they like and the industry will reflect the buying habits of the consumer. Even if journalist unjustly give out terrible reviews, if sales are appalling, the market will eventually pander to the demands of the consumer. Even if they can do that much, then if the journalist aren't careful and overstep the consumer's threshold of bias, they will eventually lose credibility. Plus with publishers wisely choosing to use tools such as review in embargoes, doesn't the majority of the power still lie within the major corporations?
