The Life Of An IMG Writer
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

Inside Mac Games' reviewer, interviewer, and podcast host Jon Carr provides readers with a glimpse behind the scenes of game reviewing in his latest feature article.

Here's an excerpt:

There may be a notion that reviewing games means you get all the games you want and sit about playing games all day. There's a partial truth to that, but remember this is a volunteer job, not a paid one. And playing a game for review is much different than just playing a game for fun. It still is entertaining, of course, but you have to look at things differently. You have to think about graphics and gameplay. You have to notice flaws and bugs. You have to test performance. If it has multiplayer you have to explore it.
If you've ever wondered what it's like to write for a gaming website, or if you've pondered what motivates our writing staff, read on for an insider's view.
