Re: Advice on game journalism?
As someone who currently works in games journalism, I'd say your best bet is to just put your skills into practice. I got my start writing a personal blog about games, discussing everything from the games i enjoyed, to my thoughts on the latest industry controversy. Even though very few people actually read what I was writing, it really helped me hone my skills and helped me think critically about the industry i wanted to work in.
In addition, try to reach out for an internship if you can! Learning from working professionals is an excellent way to learn about your dream job, and sometimes it can even lead to a full-time gig! Send some emails to your local publications and perhaps one of them can offer you an internship.
Hope this helps!
