Count me in the "I enjoy the reviews, even if I don't comment" camp.

I really love everyone's reviews in these threads, but Bone and Elkin give my favorite 16-bit platform lots of love, and so those two just stand out in my mind. That's all. I definitely read everything folks post in here.

I read pretty much everyone's reviews (exception being if I'm in a rush and then I have to skim some), but I don't really reply to a lot of them since otherwise I would just be essentially saying "Good review!" a whole lot and there's not much point in me doing that haha.

I do wish I was better at writing my own though. I'm unfortunately just not that great at writing. Especially doesn't help that I'm very slow and I often don't have a lot of time to put into making a good review. Hopefully I'll get better eventually ha...

Just keep doing it. Most of us have been writing for years, and we were far, far worse. Don't think of it as something you're bad at, just as something you're working at.

Yeah, I started participating in Games Beaten 2015 after Dsh's article on working on his backlog at the end of 2014 and my early reviews were terrible. Like anything practice is the key.

I love all the work everybody puts into this thread. Whether you're typing a full essay review, or just saying you beat something and giving a few lines on whether you thought it was good/worth your time, all of it is valuable information.

Yeah, I've only been writing review for a year, but I did a lot of writing of various types before that.

You did, but that is because you so often tell me to edit for you.

Sometimes I like to write full reviews, and sometimes I'm just too lazy. :lol:
