So you think you can be a game critic? GameCritics.com is issuing an open invitation to the gaming community to review games for our site. Game review submissions will be rated by the community and staff and the best game reviews will be published on our homepage.

Here's how you get started:

  1. Following our review template while keeping our mission and game review philosophy in mind, please post your review in our Community User Game Reviews forum with "Rate this Review" in the title.
  2. If your review impresses our submissions moderators (please pay attention to their feedback), we will work with you on your review to have it published on our main homepage.
  3. After 5 of your reviews are published on our homepage as part of this process, we will invite you to join our staff in a more official capacity.

Even if you aren't interested in writing, you can help by reading, offering feedback and encouragement to all aspiring game critics.

We look forward to seeing your work!

In the 1980s, Chi grew up in small town on the outskirts of New York City called Jackson Heights. Latino actor, John Leguizamo referred to the town as the "melting pot of the world," and while living there, Chi was exposed to many diverse cultures, as well as a bevy of arcade classics such as Pac-Man, Space Ace, Space Harrier and Double Dragon. Chi's love of videogames only seemed to grow as his parents finally caved and bought him an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (after being the only kid in the block without one). In the 1990s, Chi finagled his way into the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts.

Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.

Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers GameCritics.com his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that GameCritics.com will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
