ICYMI: Our Chat with Byteside's High Resolution Podcast in Relation to the Four Corners Gaming Report
We came out strong in relation to the written article that preceded the Four Corners report on gaming. The report covered so-called gaming addiction, loot boxes, gambling tactics in games to get people to spend more money on them, and a few other hot topics in relation to some of the perceived negatives around gaming. Our response to this wasn't done so with a view to quiet those points of concern, but to call out the way in which they were first framed in the written piece, and then second to discuss them further after seeing the full video report.

ABC's Four Corners Program Launches Archaic 'Study' into Gaming Addiction, Sets Videogame Perception Back 1000 Years
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.
