Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Friends often tell me that I have the dream job. "It must be fantastic," they say, "getting paid to play games." They almost don't believe me when I explain the 18 hour days, the time spent in front of the computer and the distinct, specific lack of playing the latest and greatest titles. It sounds like a dream job, but if you want to get to the point where you can live off your work, you need to look past the dream and discover that the reality is far more gruelling than the average office job and with less pay. Requiring more self-control and a never-off attitude, if you think it's easy, think again. 

Paid to Play Games 

The first thing you need to remember is that you're not paid to play games. A games reviewer is paid a standard rate for their writing about games. This is an important distinction. Just like a travel writer isn't paid for travelling and a food critic isn't paid for visiting restaurants, it is instead just something that comes with the territory. You must play the games to do the write-up, but it is the write-up that's important, and the bit that's most difficult. Writing in an entertaining, informative way isn't like writing a post on a forum and it never ceases to amaze me when I consider the amount of reviews I have to edit that come across like the latter.

In fact, that's where the bulk of my time lies. Doing this for a living means being a jack of all trades, and if you can edit, as well as write quick, accurate copy, you'll have a much better chance of being a professional writer. To earn even minimum wage you must either get yourself a monthly salary or find yourself somewhere where you can write 30 articles at $30 each. In the current climate - with so many amateur sites and little advertising revenue to spread between them - this is difficult but not impossible. 

An Average Day 

Video Game On an average day, I'll wake up at around 7:30-8 o clock. This might sound like a luxury, but I've only usually been asleep a few hours, and that sleep is likely interrupted by important messages and emails. The first hour of my morning tends to be replying to emails, editing other people's work and making phone calls. If I've left my office before lunch, it's been a quiet day. Maybe I'll fit in a little news or will make a start on some of my own work, but that's usually left for the afternoon, where I'll write some four or five thousand words over the space of two or three hours.

After a short break, I'll write another couple of thousand words, interrupted by major news, emails and phone calls. While others are heading home for the evening, my day is just warming up and I'll continue to write until midnight. If it's a quiet night, I may just get chance to play a game for review, although it'll be interrupted almost constantly. 


Being a video game review writer can be very rewarding, but doing it properly isn't easy. Prepare to sacrifice almost everything you enjoy about the industry in return for the ability to afford food. There's no long gaming sessions here, instead there's just an awful lot of writing.
