The lights are on
Starting on Monday, you'll notice something new at the bottom of all of our news stories. After you're done reading the facts, you'll have a chance to hear from the author in a new section we're calling "Our Take."
The purpose behind Our Take is to give a bit more context and color without compromising the integrity of the factual reporting. The new section will give Game Informer's editorial staff a chance to contribute additional analysis to all of the day's news.
This won't appear in every piece, just our news stories. Our features, opinion pieces, previews, and reviews won't be affected (they are already full of opinion and analysis). We're eager to hear your feedback as we pilot this new format, so be sure to sound off in the comments.
Email the author Mike Futter, or follow on Google+, Twitter, and Game Informer.
This sounds cool. Being able to hear opinions on news written by the GameInformer writers is something that i'm interested to see.
I actually think this is a really great idea. I mean, let's be honest, if a gaming fan is looking for news, they can go to a million different websites and read the same rehashed facts in slightly re-worded articles. By injecting a bit of their own person opinions into news pieces, GI is offering a new informative (and most likely pretty funny or clever) take on how a specific piece of news can affect the industry.
Sounds like a great idea
And how does this differ from the current state of things?
Sounds great. It should help lend some perspective to the news pieces.
sounds like a good idea , i've been wondering ( as i'm sure others have) about the guys opinion on certain news that sprouts up too
yeah i would to see the staff's views
oh nice. looking forward to this!
This could be interesting
More mike the better. But It might lead to staff trolling
Heh, depending on the editor, this could be REAL interest'in, but it sure sound intriguing if nothing else. One thing I must know: How often do you plan on unleashing the Ryckert take on articles?. . . ;)
I'd love that!
I think it's good that it's addition instead of an incorporation, that way the articles stay purely good old reporting.
Sounds like a good idea to me.
