If you could work anywhere, irrespective of money or your qualifications, what would you most like to do?

I'd love to own an indie game and entertainment store or be a 'proper' (ie paid) Games Journalist.

The former is virtually impossible given the conditions on the high street and the economy and the latter is possible, and i really think i could get in on merit of experience, but looking at the salaries I'd have to take a pay cut and move.

Very difficult one... I guess I don't get anything close to the full experience of being a historian until I start teaching as well as doing research next year, but I like the look of it aside from wrestling with university bureaucracy.

And trying to get things published. Etc etc.

I'll go for TV personality. I can usually be relied upon to say something divisive/sickening/confusing and in some way related to 19th century history after a few drinks, would probably give me a long career on BBC3 and/or worse!

I don't mind playing bad games. I've put in 200 hours+ on at least 2 games I hate in the past year or 2.

As for running a site, I know nothing about that side of things and I can't afford to run even a cheap site at the moment.

Still that's a lot better than being a games tester. GP you should start a site like pb. I'm sure he has some advice. Maybe you could do some video reviews like the Nostalgia critic and the NES punk.

I suppose the test of any job is how you'll cope with the bad bits. Games journalism sounds great until you realise that a proper review could involve 10 hours of playtime of a game that is awful. And you have to sit there replaying bits of it to make sure what you've written is accurate.

I like the job I have at the moment.

I flitter between dream jobs though, on a daily basis. It normally depends on what movie/news story I have just read. Like a child ....... :(

I'd like to be a games journo. I don't really care about money. I get the feeling I would enjoy doing the job.
