Game journalism isn't as easy as it looks. Oh, sure, you think we just sit around all day and play Max Payne 3, but the truth is, playing is just part of the job. Writing is a huge, fundamental part of it, as you have to be able to express yourself in the right manner, not just go "This is cool because blah blah." You need to FEEL right about the job. One step to getting an idea of what video game journalism is all about is getting the book Critical Path: How To Review Videogames For a Living, written by Dan Amrich. Dan, also known as One of Swords on Twitter (@oneofswords), worked in journalism for the longest time before taking a job working with Activision. Still, he remembers his days fondly enough, as he put his experience into words to help guide young minds of tomorrow down the RIGHT path of journalism. You know, the one that doesn't involve "blah blah".
