Hi there, friends.
Are you a person that loves both Wild at Heart and Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels? Do you have a wild theory about how Malo from Twilight Princess is actually Josie Packard from Twin Peaks? Do you see parallels in the storyline of Kratos and Sarah Palmer? Do you regularly play video games, think critically of them, and want to share your thoughts on some of your favorites with the world?
Well, guess what?
Firstly, I don’t see how that Malo/ Josie thing could possibly work.
Secondly, I want you to write for us. 25YL prides itself on being more than just a pop culture website. We’re a celebration of pop culture, diving deep into why specific pieces of pop culture influence us so much and why people grow attached to them. We are always on the lookout for new talent, whether you’re a first time writer, or a seasoned veteran looking for a space to write the things you really want to write.
See, this website allows for almost unbridled creativity. We base the content we put out off of ideas from people just like you. Have a wild fan theory about a game from 1993? Pitch it, sell me on it, and chances are we want to publish it. Want to participate in series retrospectives, going through each entry one by one and examining how it affected gaming/ stands up to the rest? If you join the 25YL gaming team, you can participate in all that and so much more.
Here’s a quick rundown of what we do:
- Day 1 reviews, which are general impressions of a new release after a few hours of playing.
- 25 Days Later reviews, which are full reviews after you’ve completed a game.
- Indie highlights, showcasing a lesser-known game that deserves more attention.
- Examinations of popular games from a variety of angles.
- Series retrospectives, and so far we’ve gone through Zelda, Mario, Final Fantasy, and Resident Evil.
- Anything else you want to pitch to us.
We are open to anything. 25YL is a fast-growing site, and we are always learning, expanding, and looking for ways to diversify our content types. And here’s the thing: if you sign up to be a Gaming Writer, but find you also want to write about TV, you can do that. The most magnificent thing about 25YL is that you write about what you want, when you want, and you can engage with people who hold a similar mindset to you.
