Review word/phrase ideas

Postby VideoGameCritic » February 13th, 2018, 11:11 pm

When you write 5000+ reviews it's hard to avoid using the same words over and over again. I try hard to avoid that. When I stumble upon a new word or funny phrase, I put it in a file called "words" for future reference. Hey - maybe I should post that list on my Patreon page.

I was just editing a review that had the word razzmatazz. That's a real word! I replaced it with pizzazz though, because it just didn't sound right.

Do you have any words or phrases you can recommend I use? I'm always looking for ideas! Let's hear em.

As an added note, I've been told by people at my work that my reviews are worded "exactly how I talk". They could tell by reading any of my reviews that it was my voice. I think that's a good thing. My reviews are less a report and more a stream of consciousness of how I feel playing the game.

I prefer a conversational approach. I was reading an NPR article today about the Smashing Pumpkins reunion (yay) but I couldn't understand half the article!

I’ve always enjoyed craptacular.
