    Default video game expert?

    so, i was watching some videos that about people who attack video games and make an ass of them selves at the same time because i wanted to have a laugh, but one of the videos caught my attention: one of the newscasters called jack thompson a video game expert and i wondered how would you achieve such a title? i mean obviously you don't have to play video games in order to get it, so how do you guys think people attain such a title.

    video gaem expert (played 334 gaems completely)

    ... but yah, i would say someone who has experience with almost all mainstream consoles (possibly some obscure ones as well), played games in every genre, familiar with video game making processes/marketing.

    We call it mass media. Its typically known for not being very accurate.

    The titles in mass media are subjective. Unless you're the anchor then your title either makes you out to be an expert or someones fanboy.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Just go to career and find out how to be one. Not that hard. heh, this question reminds of of how to be a wine master.

    When i went to check how to be one, i was gob smacked with the amount of shit you gotta learn to be one. This thing is harder than photonics.

    Know how to properly set up any video game system avaliable on the market. That should be enough to be considered a "video game expert"
