Slow clap for this outstanding display of journalism.

Are kids even going to school for this stuff anymore? Because it sure looks like they're just making it up as they go along.

Didn't read the article, but it your title kinda reminds me of this 4 part series on YouTube about some guy speculating what gaming would be like today if Nintendo's NES completely bombed and they didn't get into the video game industry again.
