    The Least Hideous Games Journalists (And Industry People) In Typo-Ridden Full


    “He’s probably slagging us off right now.”

    So said MCV when they printed the Top 50 Least Hideous Games Journalists (And Industry People) list in their rag a couple of weeks ago. We can’t imagine why they think we’ll be slagging them off. Because, hey, it’s not like they’ve made it easy for us by dropping no less than FIVE TYPOS into the piece, four of which are in the names that they only had to copy and paste.

    So the full list of fifty men and five women is above (click it to make it readable), but you’ll have to pretend that Ctrl-C Ctrl-V isn’t beyond MCV (or should that be CMV?), and replace Steve Hogart, Kristian Reed, Lee Skitrell, and Daniel Griliopolous with Steve Hogarty, Kristan Reed, Lee Skittrell, and Daniel Griliopoulos yourselves.

    “Head over to Rammy’s blog for more games journo controversy.”

    Yeah, maybe people would have done if you’d put the fucking URL in. Thanks, MVC.

      I LOVE the fact that one of the labels for this is 'Published Work'. LOVE IT.

      It's Rammy's work, and it's published, so what's the problem?

      It doesn't surprise me. He makes out like the GMAs are the worst, most corrupt and twisted awards in the planet but then begs readers to nominate him at every turn.

      Shut the fuck up. You're lucky they even mentioned your wanky little blog.

    6. Anonymous 4: I’m going to let you into a little secret. The first time you get something published, you feel on top of the world. The second time you get something published, you don’t bother to read it. The third to three-millionth time, you can’t even remember what you wrote to get published.

      One day, if you try really really hard and roll enough cocks around in your mouth, you might enjoy a modicum of success and get enough stuff published to discover that, actually, getting mentioned in a low-circulation trade mag is no big deal. Until that day, you can fuck right off.

      That's nothing. I got mentioned in a Manchester art and music magazine. I think. I never really bothered to verify it, to be honest.

      In passing, I still get a paper-buzz anytime anything gets printed.

      Christ, why do you think I do it?
