I’ve long said that the big problem with game reviewers (and I was the worst example of this) is that they have no life experience to use when reviewing a game besides a life spent playing video games.
I think a review of FIFA by a football referee is far more interesting than a standard review. There was that piece on 1UP last year where they got real Yakuza to play Yakuza. That was awesome! I’d love to see an archaeologist play Dig Dug. Or a story writer play Scribblenauts, etc etc.
