Ooh, another boring video game review! In response, GameDaily has a critique on the sad state of mainstream video game journalism; the reasons it got where it is, and what can be done to start improving. The article blames poor writing skills, overuse of cliches, cheesy punchlines (wha, wha, wha...), lack of original thought, and an overall level of immaturity.

For the record, I'll have you know my grammer is impeccable. So are video game blogs like Joystiq part of the problem?
