Some journalists give privileged access to the gaming industry based on friendship rather than on merits

And several more.

Here's a new COI you can add:

Added another COI regarding Chris Priestman's personal relationship with Robin Arnott. He wrote a total of seven articles about his games, while failing to disclose the COI in all seven articles:


>Chris Priestman published a total of 6 articles about the game Antichamber on 31 January 2013, all on the same day.[69][70][71][72][73][74] He failed to disclose a personal relationship with the developer of the game, Robin Arnott, in all six articles.[75] Another article was published about the game Soundself on 8 March 2013, in which Priestman also failed to disclose this conflict of interest.[76]

What's really funny is that Priestman himself realized that closeness between journalists and devs creates ethical problems:

On a second note, a Facebook friendship doesn't necessarily indicate an irl friendship, but publishing six articles about the same game on one day is a bit clickbaity.

Two Destructoid journalists gave positive review scores to Borderland DLC, without disclosing their personal and former professional relationship with the Anthony Burch, the writer of those games.

I found something interesting about Kirk Hamilton, I wasn't sure where to post this and eventually concluded that this is the most appropriate thraed:


>Ebert said he’d happily give a friend a negative review. So would I. But if a friend was accused of a crime, or of ripping off a game idea? I haven’t been at this THAT long, but long enough to know that eliminating potential conflicts of interest can make our jobs as reporters much easier.

If I understand him correctly, he seems to believe that it's ethical for a journalist to review games made by his friends, but not ethical for a journliast to report on news stories in which his friends are involved. Should this be added to Hamilton's deepfreeze entry as trivia so readers can better know his ethical standards?
