Most of the staff of my favorite video gaming news website just got laid off. Their print magazine, Electronic Gaming Monlthy, will be discontinued in the face of decreasing ad revenue. This adds to list of great video gaming journalism that has disappeared like dailyradar.com and Next Generation magazine. What’s left is gamespot, which is just a platform for advertisers since they have no journalist integrity and ign.com, which peddles sex to sell.
