Creative journalism

29 03 2005

I was forwarded this link to Gamers quarter. A magazine/PDF/zine on videogames with no review scores, no “exclusive” previews, and no cheat codes. a magazine with thoughtful analysis, well rounded criticism, and yes it is quite entertaining.
And it is edited by college students.
wow.
I have been trying for some time now to put together something similar for the UK.
more edge less gamer.
more art less code
more quality
something to read on the train, something to be proud of, and something without tits, arse, and 13 year old humour.
A filter for the web, a time saver, an entertainer, and something I am amazed by.

Time for IGDA UK I think.
