How I Review video Games

So, when it comes to reviewing a video game, I believe it all comes down to the reviewer and not entirely the video game. It depends on how long they take to play the game and then follow-up with a review. On this blog, I intend to explain how I will structure future blogs against any other blogs on this page.

I treat my games like I would treat any film or binge watch on Netflix, for example it is 3 hours long, I expect to be entertained for 3 hours and fully understand the characters of interest, main story and possible twist at the end. How I relate this to video games is, if I sit down for 3 whole hours, understand what I am doing, forget the characters names and not remember the story plot, then something has seriously gone wrong.

This is where the 3 hour rule comes into play. After playing a video game for 3 hours, I will then conclude what I think needs to be spoken about, what I understand so far and this way, it gives every single video game I review a fair base to go from. One thing I don’t like is seeing reviews where people get only 45 minutes in, can’t understand it and give up, thus giving it a negative review or lack of a review and chance for the video game. No matter what the game genre is whether that be horror, Online MMORPG, FPS, Racing, Simulators, you name it, ill try it…for 3 hours. However, due to how addictive games now days, I can’t promise that I won’t go back on it again after finishing the review and possibly type up another one.

So, since I don’t want to make my reviews or articles too long or a horror to read, I will be cutting it short from here. I plan of having a similar layout with my other reviews, short, sweet and simple. It’s the only way I feel I can be honest without watering down the articles good and bad features without going over the 3 hour rule while writting the blog.
