BENEFITS

There are a number of benefits writing for VGF.com will provide.  Among them are:

  • VGF.com has a large readership.  Writing for VGF is a good chance to have your work seen by a wide audience.

  • Writing for VGF.com provides good experience in the field of journalism.

  • We often receive reviewable games to cover on our site.  Naturally, these are shared with our writers.

It's also important to note that this is not a paid position.

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

The requirements vary depending on the position you will be seeking, but the most obvious requirement is that you need to have good writing skills no matter which position you're interested in. Prior web site experience is not necessary. Other requirements include:

  • You also must obviously like video games. Everything we do with this site involves video games, so it will be a necessity that you play them on a regular basis and have opinions on them.

  • Having a knowledge of what's going on in the video game industry is definitely a plus, but if you're just interested in playing games and writing reviews, that's fine as well. 

  • There really is no age requirement, but most likely we'll be interested in people who are at least 15, probably older, but we'll take that on a case by case basis. Unfortunately, anyone younger than that normally doesn't have the writing skills to make it on the site because they are still sharpening up their writing techniques.

  • If you're currently writing for/working on other video game sites, it will be necessary that you work solely for VGF.

RULES

VGF doesn't have too many rules, but there are a couple that are strictly enforced. 

  • Plagiarism is definitely not permitted. Anyone caught submitting work that someone else wrote will face severe consequences. Because of the legal aspects involved in plagiarized work, people who submit trial reviews to us that we know are plagiarized will not have a chance. If you decide to plagiarize something while you're on the staff and someone brings it to our attention, the most likely course of action will be elimination from the staff. This may seem harsh, but it's something we must do because we take plagiarism very seriously. If you submit something, make sure it's something you wrote yourself from scratch, and not something that you copied or paraphrased from another writer. This will not be tolerated. 

  • Another rule is to be careful of the vulgarity. Swearing is not a problem when it's controlled, but when something is riddled with vulgarity, it tends to lose its meaning and effectiveness, no matter how eloquently written it is.

POSITIONS

Writers: PSGF (PlayStation Gamers First) currently has three open writer positions.  These positions involve writing reviews, previews, features, etc.  You will be able to write for any VGF site (DC, Nintendo, PC, and XGF), but your primary responsibility will be to PSGF.  You will be expected to submit a minimum of three (3) writings per month.  Failing to meet this in one month is ok, but it will result in termination on a repeated basis.

Also, it's imperative that you own a PS2.  Obviously, you'll need these systems so you can cover their games.

If you apply for an open position, it will be necessary for you to submit a sample review of a PS2 game or editorial related to the PS2. Any application sent without a sample of your work WILL BE IGNORED.  This MAY NOT be one that has been posted on other websites, because if you are accepted as a reviewer it will be used as your first submission to VGF.  

Please also include a little bit of background information on yourself as well (name, age, systems owned, other information you feel is important).  Once ample time has been given for the webmaster to review all applications (writing plus personal info), the best will be notified and can begin work for VGF immediately. 

Your application can be sent here.  Yeah, just click on me.
