How Can I Improve My Gaming Content?

I figured I might as well finish the whole personal post trend I’ve had this week off with asking for feedback.

I think out of all my content, my gaming pieces tend to be the weakest here and there. I’ve wanted to write about games, but I always talked myself down because I don’t have any journalism qualifications, my qualifications are all in children’s care, learning and development. I know I’ll make progress over time by sticking to writing, but feedback is good here and there too!

When it comes to reviews, I’m not sure if I should put spoilers or not. I don’t always tend to review titles as they are released, but even if a game is 10 years old, it’s always a new game to someone else. So I don’t want to ruin that aspect of it, though. I also remember reading something along the lines of try to avoid being “too personal” in regards to writing reviews for pieces of media.

I’m a fan of writing opinion pieces in general, discussion is always interesting, so I’m thinking about dabbling into pieces about articles, tweets or other things along those lines in the future.

So, if you have any advice or feedback, let me know! I’m here for it! 😊

Thank you for your time, I am grateful for you reading what I write! I post gaming content every Friday.

  1. Hi. First time commenter here. 😀

    I’m of the opinion that you should write about what you like in the style that you like. I know that if I forced myself to write in a particular away just to appease my audience, it wouldn’t feel comfortable for me. And thus it wouldn’t be sustainable.

    Also, you totally don’t need any qualifications to start writing game reviews. People have been reviewing games ever since magazines and newspapers existed, without having studied journalism or anything like that.

  2. At least to me, it would seem that people like the opinionated reviews with my personal experience mixed in, more than the ones where I just work through some facts.

    People have enough “objective” sources to form their own opinion, and I think they like to read stuff from “private” persons not to help them decide if they want to buy the game, but to see what that person thinks about a game they already know.

    But maybe I’m completely wrong here, who knows?
