Let's cut to the chase.
I am looking to be a really prominent user reviewer/writer on GB.com. I don't know if I am going to pursue gaming journalism as a career, but for now I want to be the guy on the site who can deliver some really good reviews from time to time (as well as give my share of curveball pieces) and at least have at least a handful of people (3 or 4?) recommend it and/or comment on it. That's not to say that I write for the sake of getting people to look at the work, but it is always icing on the cake when guys stop by, take 5-10 minutes of their time to read what I have to say and leave a comment or two.
I remembered when I wrote my Rapid Fire review of Nier; there was a tremendous outpour of people liking the game, disliking the game, comparing it to other games, the lot. Long story short it was a fun, fun time when I got to talk to and interact with members of the community. OK, 15+ comments from a couple of different users is not much, but it still felt great.
So help me out here; if I want to be a more known member of this community, what should I be doing to head in that direction?
