Screen Rant Video Game Review Writer in United States

Position: Remote Video Game Review Writer

ScreenRant is looking for a new Video Game Reviewer to review the latest and greatest video games. With the release of major AAA titles around the corner for the new video game consoles, this is the perfect time to apply!

The ideal review writer will have experience with video game analysis, including critical experience in either reviews, previews, or editorials. The review writer will be responsible for communicating with the editorial team on which titles they are interested in, maintaining that level of communication during the reviewing process should any issues arise, and writing a critical review of the game they are assigned to with emphasis on analysis of gameplay.

Screen Rant's reviews are much more focused on what playing the game itself feels like. There is room to offer up thoughts on how a game situates itself beyond its gameplay merits, but first and foremost, our readers want to know how a game works, whether or not it is entertaining/innovative, and where it falls short.

An ideal candidate will also need to be comfortable with short deadlines and must be prepared to meet embargo dates whenever possible. Timeliness, communication, and clean writing are the three most important elements - alongside a love of games, of course!

Expectations:

  • Must be able to write a minimum of one video game review per week.

  • Write quality video game reviews while meeting assigned deadlines.

  • Communicate effectively across multiple teams.

  • Take detailed notes during reviews that can be used by the ScreenRant guides team.

Requirements:

  • C.V.

  • Cover Letter.

  • Entry to mid-level experience writing in the games industry is required - preferably reviews, previews, or op-eds.

  • Experience with WordPress is an asset.

The hiring team at ScreenRant will be back to you as soon as possible if we think you'd make a solid addition to the team. Only applications containing relevant experience will be considered.
