Well friends, E3 is now out of the way. The excitement can begin slowly dying down as we return to waiting patiently for the many announced games to finally release. Huge events like this really make you happy that this is your hobby and past-time of choice. This entire industry, both the game development AND the journalism surrounding it, is one that I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for. I love to write and create things for others to experience, whether it's meant to inform or simply ignite discussion and creative thought, and I love video games so combining these two is something that I'm passionate about.
As someone who has such reverence for this, I've recently been trying to get in the hang of writing more frequent and more varied material. I've posted a few pieces around here, mostly reviews but a couple of editorials as well. From this point on I hope to really expand on that. I usually play through games in relatively short fluid experiences, in most cases I'll have games finished within a day or two of release, so reviews come pretty easily to me. However, over the next couple of months leading up to October when our wallets are murdered, there are relatively few big releases coming so I'll be attempting to write more unique and personal content.
I have a few ideas for the kinds of things I want to write, from personal opinions on IP's that I love or even ones that I think have a lot of potential, to revisiting classic games to see how they've held up, to helping spread the word about fantastic games that many people may not have experienced like Shadow Tower Abyss. I was also lucky enough to get into the alphas/betas for Destiny, Battlefield: Hardline, and Playstation Now, so I'll have a bit to say about each of those soon.
If you're still reading at this point then I'm guessing you're not someone thinking to yourself “Why should I care?” If you are then here's the deal: while I love to write how I feel about things, it's so much more rewarding when readers like you write and comment on it. Even when someone leaves an opposing opinion I'm just glad that he or she took the time to stop by.
Without readers who are willing to get involved then all of this is for nothing. My goal from this point on is to, hopefully, put out at least one fleshed out piece of content every week. The last few things I wrote were Wolfenstein, Watch Dogs, and Murdered: Soul Suspect reviews that I wrote for my personal tumblr, but it seems a bit late to worry about moving them over here so I'll be starting fresh next week. If you've stuck around for this whole article then I thank you and I hope you'll stick around over the next few months to check out what I write about and hopefully leave feedback for me. Thanks for your time!
