The Daily Grind: Do you like political subtext and social commentary on gaming sites?

Jef Reahard

Recently Massively authored a Think Tank column that asked whether studio drama affects our perception of games and gamemakers. For today's Daily Grind, I'd like to turn a similar lens toward game blogging.

While most game journos are content to write about products and companies they love (or hate), there is a growing subset of politically motivated types who stir the pot by mentioning sexism, gun control, and any number of other hot button topics at every opportunity.

Whether this is good or bad depends entirely on your perspective, and naturally that's what we'd like to hear. Do you like political and/or social change subtext in your gaming coverage, or do you prefer to separate your entertainment news from real-world issues?

Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
