Be at one with the hivemind

Apparently somebody thinks video game journalists need a style guide to keep things consistent from one publication to the next. David Thomas, Kyle Orland and Scott Steinberg have teamed up to give the gaming media its own manual of style, including, it appears, deciding that, per the title, video game is one word, and not two.

The blurb teaser that asks “What defines a good game review?” should be fun. I’ve spent a lot of the day reading some really bad reviews from high traffic sites, but I’m betting the authors have better advice than “learn to write” or “hire better editors”.

The style guide arrives in June.

    They’ll almost certainly be at GDC; it might be fun to ask them about it personally.
