video game critcism…

There’s an interesting column in Esquire about the lack of video game critics in the industry. Note there is a big difference between a game reviewer and a game critic here. A reviewer simply tells how well the game looks, plays, etc. A critic aspires to tell you what a game means or, in the case of games, what it could mean.

I would love to be able to write something along the lines laid out in the article, but I fear my writing aren’t isn’t quite elite enough.

    Just pull the trigger and do it, dude. Remember last year when I sent out that post about the whole “New Games Journalism” thing? I want to read your take. Pull the trigger, yo.
