How to Become a Game Reviewer in ONE Easy Step

Step 1: Review games

Seriously, do you like games? I don't just mean that you like to play them. Do you like to analyze them? Can you enjoy a game at the same time you are looking at it critically? Then review a game. Set up a blog and contribute to it weekly at the minimum. Don't tell your readers that a game "is awesome". That doesn't mean anything. Pick apart every aspect of the game from the art to the story to specific gameplay mechanics. Explain why something worked (or not). You're doing all of this so that when you apply for a position with a company that needs a reviewer, you have something to point to that will show them you are actually capable of doing it.
