Since Bill has been elevated to whatever his title is on GameShark, I have had to become more critical of my own writing. At the risk of sounding like a suck-up, Bill knows writing.
This becomes more apparent to me after reading the Forza Motorsport 2 review at IGN. Hilary has been at IGN for some time, and despite years on the job, either him, or his editor allowed this sentence in the review:
“If you love cars, you will likely love Forza 2.”
You are kidding me right? Likely? Nice qualifier so that it isn’t a finding of fact. But I mean seriously, it’s like saying, “needless to say Forza 2 isn’t for fans of soccer.” WTF?
Obviously it didn’t take Bill to make me notice this example, but you see what he’s trying to do at Gameshark to move above drivel like this.
