How To Write The Perfect Discription: Video Games

Like if this guide is helpful

This is a guide to help you make an easy-to-use attractive discription for your item. We're going to be thinking about video games. For example purposes our game is Roller Coaster Tycoon 3. It's a game for making your own theme park.

Key

Bold and Italic: Pointers and Information

Normal: Actual Discription

         Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 (RCT3) PC

You should have a very basic title with basic information (genre, name of item, platform etc.). Don't have something like:

rct3 da best game evr!

  1. People won't know what rct3 is.
  2. Platform: You don't want people looking for a Xbox 360 game and after bidding etc. finding out it's a PC game do you?
  3. If you do this it looks very improfessional (if that's a word). Do you see powersellers with titles like that?

RCT3 is a simulation game for making theme parks. You can build amazing rollercoasters with heights of over 100ft and twisting barrelrolls to max out the G forces! Or you can go for a gentle theme park with bumper cars, railways and observation towers. This amazing game offers awesome 3D graphics that brings your theme parks to life. But Now you have the coaster cam! Ride your own thrilling works of art and be amazed!

That is a DISCRIPTIVE attention grabbing discription. It focuses on the best features and dosen't go on about boring bits like elevators. The text is fast-paced and not a slow boring piece of acapella. I've also written a rubbish discription below...

OMG! PLZ BUY THIS GAME IT IS DA BEST. ITS SO KWL U CAN BUILD ELEVATORS AND BUMPER CARS! YOU WILL LIKE! BUY PLZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can probably see the problem with that. No real discription, goes on about boring bits and doesn't even mention rollercoasters. Also a million exclamation marks doesn't look very professional does it?

Shipping

Royal Mail First Class (Next Day)      United Kingdom 1.00

Royal Mail Second Class (1-3 Working Days)   Untied Kingdom  0.50

ParcelForce Worldwide    Worldwide  2.00

That is good. It presents it in an easy on the eyes format and shows you all the information you need. Below is not so good...

post. dont want to write da post it's written below

You've guessed. He hasn't even written it. Sure you don't have to write the post in your discription but it's much more professional. Either do or don't. Don't write I can't be bothered as you'll sound very unprofessional. Hope you like the guide. Enjoy.
