I Don't Want to be a Games Journalist

I'm happy just being a gamer. Let me start by saying that I'm not going to get into a debate about the term "Games Journalist", because that isn't relevant here; you know what I'm talking about. What I seek to do is to describe why being a games journalist is a shit job that I'd never want to undertake. To clarify a second time, I'm not suggesting that games journalists are terrible people or that they need to get "real jobs". On the contrary, I respect these people in a way similar to that which I respect blue-collar workers -- for taking on professions that improve my quality of life a great deal, professions that I could never take on myself. So let me detail to you the reasons why I could never be a games journalist.

And I couldn't be more glad to do that. Long Live Destructoid.

About NoFutureone of us since 10:40 PM on 06.15.2010

I'm Matt, a chemist, musician, artist, and most importantly, a gamer. I've been gaming since I got a Sega Genesis as a kid and haven't stopped since. I've been a lurker on Dtoid for quite a while, but now that I've graduated college(!) I think I can spare the time to write more.

I mainly play games on the PS3 and PC, because that's what I have. My PC isn't that powerful though, so it's mostly just indie titles and older releases. I'm a busy dude, and so lately I've been favoring the games on my PC simply because I'm there. Like, right now. I'm not sure what I'm going to write about in this blog thing, but I'll try to keep it interesting, at the very least.

Games I'm Playing
Super-Mario RPG - Legend of the Seven Stars
