See, we can be sensationalist too. This is called "yellow journalism
". And while the inclusion of 'experts' in this 'study' rebukes -- in language -- our claim this Four Corners piece
is yellow journalism, it's the sensationalist claims behind all the cited examples of addiction and developer exploitation of 'gamers' here that we have an issue with.
This is done so without acknowledging things like premium pricing over free to play, the warnings that come with that, player-intent or the level of intended investment in the first place (read: knowing full well you're spending real-world money on cosmetics and the like).
It's all disappointingly framed, to say the least.
