Session Name How Games Get Reviewed
Speaker(s) Erik Brudvig
Company Name(s) EEDAR
Track / Format Business and Marketing and Management
Overview

A+, 9.5/10, 95%. You see these numbers all the time - but a review is much more than a number.


In this lecture we will provide an inside look into how video games get reviewed and answer some often asked questions. How do outlets decide which games to review? How are scores awarded? How long does a reviewer play a game before writing his or her assessment? What features of a game are most important? How are media outlets adapting to the changing face of games and the increasing importance of online play?
