"Game Review Writing Competition" was arranged by The Business Standard along with "PS4™Bangladesh", a Facebook gamer group, to help young people flex and develop their skills since educational institutions are closed due to the coronavirus outbreak in Bangladesh.
The competition ended on May 7 with over 50 reviews submitted by young passionate gamers who are all students, ranging from school to universities. Their enthusiasms and passions towards getting emerged into the virtual worlds were reflected through their English writing skills, containing rich vocabularies.
Jawadul Islam, a first-year undergraduate student of North South University (BBA), secured the first position with his in-depth review of Persona 5.
