A round-table discussion of game journalism

As part of my game journalism mentorship I asked a group of talented and experienced game journalists to sit in on a video chat with mentee Andrea Ayres Deets. The result was a chat with Polygon’s Tracey Lien, Cnet’s Ian Sherr, USA Today’s Mike Snider and Kotaku’s Stephen Totilo about game journalism.

Also, feel free to discuss the topics in the comments below. The more involved the merrier.
