He believes that journalists should try making games first to get a better perspective on what they are writing about. “I think all games journos should be forced to make a game somehow, see how they get on. It gives you a more rounded perspective,” he told Gamasutra. “It’s really interesting, because as a developer I think you’re slightly more understanding of the process involved, but as a gamer you know whether or not you’re having a good time.” Would love to make a game and all, but I’m too busy writing.
