Interested in writing video game reviews?


Recommended Posts

Message from Jason Venter, owner of Honest Gamers, a site I've written at for over a year and have received many free games from:

"Hey!

We still have a bunch of downloadable games that we need reviewed. If you're interested, write back with your full name and the reason(s) that you're the perfect candidate. I'm including the available titles below (two that I've mentioned before and two that are new) with links to info on the HonestGamers site...

Streets of Fury (Xbox Live)

Madballs in... Babo: Invasion (PC)

http://www.honestgamers.com/news.php?art....ABO%3A+Invasion

Fallen Earth (PC) - 30-day access code provided

Gemini Lost (PC) - one-time download

As we continue to expand and provide more PC coverage, I'll continue to need people to step up and review any titles on that platform that interest them. If you know a fantastic writer who likes covering PC games, perhaps he or she can help with coverage in the future. Don't be afraid to refer talented friends to the site. We're headed into the busy season now, so let's try to get these covered quickly and with the quality that HonestGamers readers expect and deserve. Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for your ongoing efforts!"

Writing reviews has improved my critical eye and my writing abilities very much in the last year or so. I highly recommend trying it out to anyone who is interested in any form of writing. A little bit of journalism can go a long way, especially when you have to cater to a continual audience. It's also a great portfolio piece and, hey, you get free games.

If you're looking for console-based game reviewers as well as PC-based game reviews, I'd be absolutely overjoyed! While PC gaming is foreign to me, I have every current-gen console, lots of free time, and plenty of enthusiasm towards the gaming culture.

In fact, if anyone knows of an opportunity where I could break into videogame reviews on Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!

I should point out that I am not Jason. I am Jonathan Alisandyr, though I do write for Jason. However, if you email him at the address provided, I'm sure he'd be interested in taking all of you. To answer the main question that has been asked, yes we do console games as well (in fact, mostly we do console games). If you have some games you could review, please come join the team. When we get some more console games in, you'd be eligible for those as well, if you can show you are a consistent reviewer.
