My first experiences as a videogame reviewer


Fuck this game.

No seriously, I got Sonic Adventure 2 when I was 17, and I loved it. It was one of my first Gamecube games, so I was naturally looking forward to play the first game. Little did I know that this was going to be my first very negative review. But this was a necessary experience: To write a negative review is probably one of the hardest things you can do in this job. This is mostly due to the fact that you can't just use swear words in order to describe it as I do it here, and your criticism has to follow a certain argumentation. This also was the first time I had problems meeting the deadline: I corrected the review around ten times, as it was really messy. On the pro-side, it became my best review to date, because it is really fun to read, since it is... well, alive. It also showed me, how far I could go without making the newspaper actually edit my review in order to fit it in.

Well that's pretty much it for now. I might write one of these blog posts once per month, if people are interested. I'm happy about any kind of Feedback!
