Rovio’s VP of mergers and acquisitions, Mr. Teemu Huuhtanen, recently said that casual gamers are not those kinds of people who read about game reviews and stuff like that. They get all the updates and game related news from friends and colleagues.
So literally, casual gamers get game reviews from word of mouth. It’s like the old days when folk songs pass from one generation to the next not by manuscripting the lyrics but by word of mouth.
He did say that for the initial pull, internet reviews and flogs along with social networking sites help in the process. But after that casual gamers don’t seem to pursue online reading.
So what is the point in putting up all these on the internet? Even more exclusively, what is the significance of this article, if casual gamers don’t read it? Well, the answer is simple enough.
People who like games (when I say that I intend to signify hard-core gamers) and people who are related with gamers go through these articles all the time. They do these mainly out of 2 reasons.
One is that they are enthusiasts. Second one is that they need to talk to gamers and this will be an awesome pick up line if you know what I meant.
So if you are reading this article, it means you are either a hard core gamer or a game enthusiast. There is nothing more to say regarding this and the best way I thought of concluding this is by saying that do try to read all kinds of game reviews as possible.
It’s because of the reason that it is the only way we can check a game’s authenticity and entertainment value. Before you purchase anything, do ensure that the game is worth it and for that do check out game reviews even if you are a hard core gamer or not.
