I've been reviewing games as a sort of closure for a long time. Over the years, I've got 500 reviews in a document. Some are lazy, others have bolstered 1,350 words.
Out of boredom I thought well I'm going to write game developers and get free games. It worked! Within an hour, I had 4 review copies granted out of 5 attempts. 2 of the 4 are awful games, but whatever. If anything its just someone to tell them where they're going wrong.
I'm just really shocked how easy it is to get a review copy. Even a game with a publisher gave me a review copy. I'm a nobody, unpaid, but my reviews are pretty damn detailed and even if I don't like a game I still give it a fair shake, which confuses a lot of people.
So wow this is easy, all I had to do was ask and cite 10 reviews, 6 good and 4 bad to show I'm capable of negative reviews. Maybe I can get $60 AAA titles for free.

I've wanted to bow out of reviewing games. I just feel like there's better things I can be doing with my free time.
However, publishers that I've asked to review a game from them have just started sending me review codes. Not asking hey would you like to review it? Nope just send me codes along with a long press statement even if I'm not press. I have a few PS4 codes even if I don't own a PS4.
One publisher / developer told me I need to start making videos and I can really take off.
