Writing About Games Isn’t All Fun and Games

This is kind of funny and I think that a lot of people reading will appreciate it. From the outside looking in, writing about games seems like it would be the most fun thing in the world, or at least the easiest. Because, I mean, it is writing about videogames, how could that ever go wrong? The fact is, not all games are particularly good, and even good games have portions inside of them that make you want to claw your eyeballs out and never play games again. Personally, I do it for a few different sites right now, and while I still absolutely enjoy it, there are some moments where you begin to question everything.

One proud game reviewer has opened up a Tumblr to collect some of his ridiculous thoughts while playing games to show that while you guys might get upset playing a game, imagine having to play a game in two days and then pump out 1,000 words about it. It can be exhausting and you can lose your train of thought or even drive to play, but you keep on chugging ahead. Hell, by the time I finished Assassin’s Creed 3 in a day and a half I was partially delirious from exhaustion when I wrote my review, but I don’t think that you can tell, right?
