What About The Game? was started in 2015 with the aim of reviewing games properly. No wishy-washy writing that seems to plague the bigger review sites out there and leave the reader none the wiser as to how the game actually is. What do you do? What’s good? What’s bad? Is it fun? Questions that are often forgotten when the writer is all too focused on analogies, exaggerated anecdotes and all round pretentiousness in order to make their bachelor’s degree in English Lit and Journalism seem worthwhile. Yes, I’m bitter I didn’t do it.
Anyways, it’s our mission to produce useful reviews for the consumer to use as a buying guide. We don’t use a scoring system because games are less straight forward than that. Video games can be seen from so many perspectives that it is incredibly naïve (and some may say cheap and lazy) to stick a number at the end and call it a day. You have to take into account genre, target audience, budget and even price. At the end of the day our aim is to say who we think will find the most enjoyment out of it, whether we recommend the game or not and why. Hopefully our writing will convey to the reader whether or not the game is for them.
