That's fine, apply for the job then, i'm really interested how informative your review would be vs joe's. God knows i'm not a blind follower of bit-tech reviews (just look up the threads for the Titan Fenrir reviews), but i'm with Joe on this one. He did not say you are an idiot, he was making a rather good point, namely that reviews ought to be written by somebody who is passionate about the genre, because that is his reader base. A review is a general buy/dont-buy advice, and as such has the function to inform those who were concidering the purchase anyway. Your point that this advice is hard to interpret for non-fans is not even disagreed upon by him, it's a conscious choice in the way he goes about doing his job. If you are not a fan of the genre, you are not a member of the target audience of this review, hence you shall have to do some thinking of your own before you can decide on your purchasing decision. Aside from the negativism, you seem perfectly capable of doing so, so what's your problem?
