  1. 1. REVIEW
  2. 2. Proposal for Video Game Review for Vibe Productions From Elliot Jones Henley College Student Introduction I am creating a Video Game Review for the recent release BioShock: Infinite. I am using the PC copy for my review. Not a console version. I have chosen to produce a review so that I can show content and gameplay for people to then decide if they believe the game is worth buying for them or not. This is important because when paying out £40 for a game, you will want to know 1) It is worth the money and 2) that you will enjoy it. Proposed Approach I will be creating between a 10 – 15 minute video game review detailing different aspects of the game such as Characters, Storyline, Weapons, Combat, Vigors, Setting and Transport. The way I plan to set these out is have myself use a screen recording software called Bandicam to record my screen as I play through the game in full. With this 10-12 hours of game footage I will then edit it down to the parts that I will be talking over. I will be recording myself read out a script in front of a green screen where I can then change the background into the gameplay footage. This makes the review more interesting and personal then just my voice.I made an online survey to find out exactly what my audience wants to see, and believes is most important. It is clear that I need to fit in as much information as I can, but without boring the audience. They’d like to be able to see as much as the game as possible to know if it is worth their money and time. Keeping my review informative while being entertaining I believe this can be done well if I focus on making the points fast but in depth. Having the footage will help me explain game mechanics and scenes that may be hard to describe without visual help such as powers and weapons. The age rating for my review is age 18 because I will be using in game footage, the age rating of the game is 18 because of violent and graphic nature. The USP of my product is that I will have high quality footage, informative information and also I will try keep it fun. I am the only talent for my production as I am the presenter.
  3. 3. My Findings During research I have found the video game reviews are not something that a lot of people produce, but it is something that a lot of people have said they need. Sites such as PC Gamer, IGN and Metacritic have reviews on games but these are text based. This is why I have tried something different. Other highly known reviewers like Angry Joe are known because he is informative, funny and still has great quality. But he is one of the only ones I’ve seen with such excellence about him. The review is important to let people know if it is worth them spending their money on and also if they will enjoy it.Video Games have such a broad spectrum when it comes to age range. There are games for kids when they can just pick up a controller all the way through to when they’re in their older age. The target audience for my review is 18+because of the games violent nature. I have set no limit to the age of who may watch it because it is there for information. Though from doing research, 30% of gamers are 50+ but they have not been known to regularly watch YouTube. Gender is also something I didn’t focus on. My reason for this being that 58% of males take up the gaming community, meaning there is still 48% of gamers being female. It is very close, and Im sure in coming years we will see them numbers level out, so gender was not a game changing aspect for me. The game also sets out to impress both males and females with the characters Booker and Elizabeth.My main competitor for video game reviews is a YouTube star called Angry Joe who has a YouTube show called The Angry Joe Show. He makes video game reviews about the latest games that come up. They’re always great quality, informative, hilarious and greatly thought out. I aspire to bring my production to his level as much as I can, while writing a script and editing I want to bring in some of his techniques to my production such as use of a green screen. With over 659,000 subscribers he has a huge audience so it can’t only be me who believes his content is great. Of course all other producers of video game reviews are competitors, I want to do a great job and produce high quality entertainment.
