Counterpoint TV Pt. 4: Is N4G Bad For Gaming Journalism?

By Evan Velez

December 24, 2009

If you weren’t already aware, our very own Editor, Joel Taveras was featured on PixelEnemy’s Counterpoint TV. At the end of the first 3 rounds Joel was neck and neck with PixelEnemy’s representative, Jay Michaels, but today brings us at the DualShockers an early Christmas gift.

The fourth part in the series was the most heated section so far. The subject matter was “Is N4G bad for gaming journalism?” Joel and Jay both made valid arguments, but Joel came out of this section on top. It just goes to show that we here at the DualShockers have the knowledge and evidence to back up our claims. The topic of smaller blogs, and their place in the gaming journalism spectrum came up as well. It seems unanimous, that the smaller blogs are what keep gaming journalism from stagnating.

Christmas day will bring us the final episode in this series, and Joel will be going into the final topic with a 10 to 8 lead on Jay Michaels. Regardless of who wins, we would like to thank PixelEnemy.com for allowing us to be a part of Counterpoint TV. Be sure to check in tomorrow and see who comes out on top!
