First-Graders Are Learning How To Write Video Game Reviews Now

Kotaku - My friend John found this hanging in a first-grade classroom here in NYC. It's for the kids' writing workshop. I think we're going to start using it as the Official Kotaku Review Guide from now on.

The story is too old to be commented.

Half of kotaku writers write like a first grader. One negative article after another. Kotaku can't write one article without writing something negative about Sony.

Facts are the facts. I didn't say anything fanboyish. Kotaku earned the reputation, they can live with it.

First graders could do a better job than everyone writing for Kotaku.

First graders are at least being taught standards, which is better than most average Joe fanboy review with crappy website. Gaming Journalism needs to have standards in place. It seems as though you can make a website and get on metacritic, which is not very professional at all.

While I've seen some lame Kotaku articles over the past year, this one takes the cake.

First off, what's so funny about there being no mention of scores? Several articles / writers have expressed interest in letting the words speak for them-self, so it's not like everyone loves scores. I personally understand why they exist and just wish more people tried to figure out WHY it scored whatever, over debates about how whatever score is right or wrong.

As far as the actual paper goes, writing a review is a nice way to teach kids critical thinking. It makes sense for a teacher to make the project interesting to them, since they would actually learn said skill. Perhaps if some writers at Kotaku did this, we wouldn't see so many worthless articles and hate filled replies.

I always tell the site I write for I prefer having no scores. It always get over ruled for two reasons. 1 People don't read....they just scroll to the score then leave. 2 You needs scores for sites that archive a games reviews.
