You know what? I’m having second thoughts about last Friday’s post and I take back the part about having an affinity for games to discuss them professionally. You don’t need to be a gamer or even like video games to say something about them. If there’s anything we’ve learned from Anita Sarkeesian it’s that you can be a charlatan peddling half-truths and still professionally talk about video games.
In fact, you don’t even have to be good at writing or talking to discuss games, or have meaningful or coherent thoughts on them. Heck, look at what I do on this website!
