UPDATE: Well, it looks like folks are almost unanimously in favor of longer reviews. Longer reviews it is! Thanks to all who contributed their opinions. I appreciate the feedback, both on the site and on Twitter/Google+.
Hello Sega friends,
Since the end of the Sega Does podcast and my working on the ever-forthcoming NES book, the site has felt a bit wanting in terms of content. I’ve noticed it, you’ve noticed it. It sucks, plain and simple.
That being said, I have an idea to pump out new content on a more regular basis: shorter reviews for games that aren’t worth the extra time/words. When I say “short,” I mean a return to the 1-2 paragraph days of questicle.net. And when I say “games that aren’t worth the extra time,” I mean stuff like my last review, Casino Games. Not a bad title, but did it need 700 words devoted to it? The goal isn’t to rush through the Sega library, but to devote more time to games that deserve it.
I leave this in your hands. This sounds like a nice idea both for me and for the readers, but ultimately, you all are the ones consuming said content. If you prefer the slightly longer reviews and are fine with the current 1-2 reviews/week system set in place, I’m ok with that. If you wish the site had more content and are open to shorter reviews, let me know.
The comments are yours! Thanks for the feedback.
Cheers to artist EdoBean for this cracking image of a confused Sonic.
