FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Video Games Can Be Work Too

Posted on Thursday, October 7 @ 23:04:16 Eastern by
My review assignment this week was Front Mission Evolved, which I just finished. Gaming never felt like as much work as it did just now.

Don't take it the wrong way. I love playing video games. I love writing about video games. And reviewing video games is neat too. Sometimes though, I'll have to put hours into a game I would never have even picked up myself.

When it's a game like Monday Night Combat, that's just peachy! Dead Rising 2 was fun too!

I've been reviewing solidly for a year now and everything has been going smoothly. There were times when gaming in my free time felt like work so the load hasn't been too bad. I don't want to sound disingenuous, or like I don't know there's tons of people who'd happily step into my place but, when you're on a deadline, and you've got three hours of a game left, things just drag! I'll have my full review of Front Mission Evolved in tomorrow.
