I’m not going to be writing reviews anymore. Not formal, analyze every aspect of a piece of media and throw a rating on it reviews, anyway. I’ve been moving in this direction anyway, but it’s time to make the call and make it official.
I love movies. I love video games. I love TV (when I actually get around to watching it). I’m going to focus my writing on those topics on that love more often than not. I’m not saying I’m only going to say good things or I’m only going to write about things I like, but there’s something to be said for reacting to something, to anything, emotionally and leaving it at that.
There’s a place for the technical, detail-oriented discussion, but I’m realizing that place just isn’t for me. Maybe what I’m writing could still be considered reviews. Maybe it would still be possible to slap a score on them and call it a day. To be honest, I don’t really care about that.
Movies, games, and TV (not to mention everything else) would be nothing without emotional impact. I’m going to see and play things, and I’m going to have reactions to them. I’m going to try to capture those reactions, those raw emotions, as often as I can. I’m going to try to focus my writing on here on those emotions, and on the works that really draw those emotions out of me.
I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
