GamesRadar - Oh no, not this one again! As much fun as I had writing this Top 7 for our 2008 Week of Hate, I don’t think I’ve been as insecure about anything I’ve written for GR since.
Genuinely trying to be funny is terrifying. Intentionally pandering like a tabloid or being unrelentingly cynical leaves nothing to fear – it’s not you. But really, sincerely striving for humor leaves you vulnerable, not just the work. At the time I wrote this, I was a mere boy (I believe I’ve graduated to ‘big boy’ now), and still lacked much confidence in my voice. So I was terrified.
