Take a look at this. No one cares what game journalists say anymore. Just as print magazines were replaced by digital magazines, digital magazines are being replaced by Youtube Personalities. And you know what? Five years or so from now, Youtube Personalities will be replaced by something else.
I cannot wait for the day when AAA game marketing campaigns are found to be irrelevant. Can you imagine what will happen when buying purchases are governed by people’s experience of the product instead of the hype of the product? Oh, the Game Industry will rue that day.
