Variety on Games Criticism

This little thing could be the start to an interesting discussion of games criticism and journalism, making points like: game reviews are more important to their industry than film reviews, it’s hard to write game reviews for non-gamers, and game reviewers are too easy on blockbuster titles. Unfortunately, none of the points are really unpacked. What’s so hard about writing about games for non-gamers? I have some ideas, I’d just like to see this fleshed out.
