Apples and Oranges: Chuck Klosterman, Lester Bangs, and New Games Journalism

I read a lot of gaming websites, play a helluva lot of games, and spend a not-completely-healthy amount of time pondering game theory, the game industry, and game writing. As such, Klosterman’s plea for a game-journalist version of Lester Bangs struck a chord with me. Coupled with a steadily increasing irritation with what passes for the gaming press over the past couple of months, add a dash of bitter, and boom.
