  1. 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.

      Steam has a new policy where you can buy a game, play it less than 2 hours in 2 weeks and get a refund. Time to start pro reviewing!

      I've gotten one review 2 years before after accidentally buying a gift copy for the wrong product. Took 2 weeks and they told me I couldn't get another refund.

      According to the official page they reserve the right to deny you refunds if you start abusing the system. Using refunds to try games for free is explicitely mentioned.

      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.
