Gamesindustry International: The State of Games Journalism
IGN’s Peer Schneider and Red Robot Lab’s John Davison discuss paid content, video growth, tracking new audiences and the end of a generation

Game journalism on the internet saw many changes, as sites conducted minor or major overhauls, merged with other sites, or experimented with new ways of presenting game information to consumers.
