video games journalism dossier 3

This will be a collection of four pieces that you may complete at any time during the semester. They are:

1) A formal game review targeted to an existing games journalism venue (a magazine or website). This should be written with journalistic standards. I expect you to list your potential venue with the submission, and I expect the submission to seem appropriate for that venue.

2) An informal, or personality-based, game review. This would be more like a personal blog, or a Vlog sort of response. This can be much more embedded in the culture of the scene surrounding the game in question, and unlike the formal game review, you can use slang and/or profanity here.

The specific length of each of these will depend on the audience and venue, but less than 500 words and more than 2000 are both bad ideas. So let’s say each one must be 500-2000 words.
