The Daily Mail’s stance on video games is not as clear as you might think.
The newspaper is known for running negative pieces about the industry’s alleged penchant for violence, but a few of its writers are keen to offset this with comprehensive video games coverage.
Daily Mail Games offers reviews, previews, news and interviews written by the Daily Mail’s editorial team. Articles appear in the site’s Science and Tech section. The site has over 45m readers.
“Video games can receive a harsh dressing down from most mainstream publications,” said Daily Mail Games writer Talal Musa. “We aim to show another side of them and what better way to reach out to people than the world’s largest website.”
Daily?Mail Games has been growing its audience with activity on the Twitter and Facebook accounts. Going forward, the site will offer more dynamic content such as video reviews and focus its coverage to match trends in the industry.
“There is a sense that the industry is finally warming to the idea of the MailOnline covering video games,” added Musa. “As the industry evolves, we must too. We’re determined not to be left behind.”
