Satire Game Journalists Physically Unable to Write Reviews Without Adding a Number

At a writer’s workshop during last week’s PAX East, professionals in the industry taught newcomers on how to write a review. Unfortunately, the lessons fell apart after it was discovered that no one could write a review without attaching a numerical score to it. Surprisingly, this workshop actually had quite a few helpful tips on writing reviews. It was suggested that writers should start with an introduction that expresses how they feel about the game. Furthermore, they should always substantiate any opinion with facts based on what they played. It would have been extremely useful if the students actually got that far. Lastly, and most importantly, reviews should always depend on how much is "donated" towards your "research." (Culture)

Except for Abriael, of course, he's beyond the curve. He just adds "Fantastic", "Unbelievable", and "Mind-Melting" to all his stories. "AHEM"...excuse me!

Satire or not, you'd be surprised (or maybe not) at the number of paid journalists out there who review without actually playing. Our industry is one of the most corrupt I've ever dealt with.
