Games Journalist Duty: Portal 2

Written on April 26, 2011 – 4:21 pm by Ding

It is times like this I realise as a young and inexperienced gaming journalist that I have a responsibility to share experiences and offer advice for others who may not have played something yet.

If you ever play games or have an interest in games whatsoever, if someone starts talking about Portal 2 and you have not yet played it, do this one simple thing:

Run away.

Run away until you can not hear them any more.

If this requires you leaving buildings, crossing streets or jumping off cliffs, you might still be grateful of this advice.

It’s a remarkable game and one day I might write about it.  I can’t now for the sake of my games journalist duty, as it puts people at risk of finding out about the game before they’ve played it.
