    Watch Me Play Cuphead! ►►

    Cuphead broke the internet. When Cuphead gameplay of a journalist struggling to finish the tutorial hit the web, an age old debate was rekindled: Should gaming journalists have to be good at games to write about them? Or does writing come first and foremost? We'll be debating this very question, but in the end your answer will be the one that needs to be heard!

    Also note that all sides of the debate are RANDOMLY decided, so the debater may be arguing for a side he or she doesn't agree with. We wanted to keep this as neutral and unbiased as possible. NO HATE!

    If the writers dont try out video games how are they gonna find out what the game problem is or what would make it better.

    Game journos don't play games for a living...
    They spend all their time looking for other jobs so they can start making a living! :)
    Why play the game at all? No one reads game reviews that aren't on their steam page..
    They may as well just guess, then get back to job hunting.. ;)

    Steam reviews are from ppl who like and play the genre of game you are looking at..

    A writer, if they are performing badly at a game for a preview or review, should at least have the knowledge and foresight to acknowledge that it's their inexperience affecting their bad experience and not any fault of the game itself.

    I think matpat is correct, since we never asked for the reviewers to be pro, just that they could at least be able to understand simple mechanics

    If game journalists actually loved gaming they'd be committed to mastering "hard" games. Most of them should be writing about something other than video games. You guys got this thing 100% correct though. Great job

    if the writer was a better gamer, he could've beaten the game faster, while getting better at that genre of games and being able to give an accurate review. If every video game writer was an average gamer, they could very easily give accurate descriptions of a game, especially about difficulty while being able to put out good reviews faster

    My argument is that the game reviewers have to not be too biast about what they write. Sure they have a deadline, but reviewing a game needs full gameplay. Same goes for gamers, there are gamers out there that review games, there are some play little known games. For example there is 8-Bit-Ryan with his 3 random game series with around 61 episodes, 183 games reviewed that would not be reviewed. If I had the equipment, I would do a 3 random game series in my freetime. EVERYONE HAS EXPECTED DEADLINES!!!! We can't review everything with limited time you know.
