Game Starter - Games Journalism

Gamecity
17. Juni, 2024, 18.00 – 19.30 Uhr
Meet professional Games Journalists to learn about their jobs and what they would have liked to know when they first started out.

Hamburg is not only a hotspot for the development of computer games, but also for numerous vocational schools and universities that offer courses specifically for future professionals in the games industry. For students and career starters, the exchange with experts in the games industry is essential in order to know the requirements in the individual disciplines and to prepare for them. The Game Starter is the perfect opportunity for such an exchange.

For the next installment of Game Starter on June 17, we will be talking about Games Journalism. Games Journalism is an important aspect of the industry: coverage of a game may decide on making or breaking it, by drawing attention and guiding players in finding their next favourite game. At the same time, games journalists might hold the industry accountable, and also inform the devs about developments in the market that shape business decisions. It's a multifaceted job, depending on the outlet, format, audience and much more.

Three industry experts will talk about their own careers, their everyday work life as well as what career starters who are interested in becoming games journalists should know about the industry. Later on they will also answer our viewers' questions.

Our guest experts for games journalism will be:

  • Géraldine Hohmann, Lead Creator GameStar Talk at GameStar
  • Leya Jankowski, Editor in Chief at MeinMMO
  • Sebastian Tyzak, Deputy Editor in Chief at Game Two

The event is free of charge. Participants can ask their questions via chat. All you need is a device that can play the live stream, chat, and a stable internet connection. No webcam or microphone is required.
