Video games magazines and me

“It’s fun to read angry reviews of rubbish things. But enthusiasm reads great, too. It’s why all those annual Best-Ofs or All-Time Top Tens are so satisfying. It’s a thrill to see someone take things so brilliant and familiar, and coil them into two or three sentences that spring on reading. Which I suppose is a bit like my love for video game magazines in general. Because even if you gouge the video and the game out of video games, reading about them is still a pleasure. Not just a proxy fun of games relayed and recounted, but games refracted – through an old-school static of fixed words and printed pictures – into something different and awesome and new.” – Omar Hafeez-Bore, Eurogamer
