Check out this list put together of the top 50 journalists. If you keep a relatively watchful eye on the scene, there shouldn’t be any real surprises on it: Shoe, Brian Crescente of Kotaku (a former cops reporter) and Dennis McCauley of GamePolitics are all there, along with Morgan Webb and Adam Sessler.
It’s strange to see a list like this, especially since it was hard to name even a handful of game journalists 10-15 years ago. I think it’s safe to say to the haters — gaming is NOT a fad. Understand this, and move on. It’s not going anywhere.
