Occasionally, I leave reviews on the games I play. I mostly use "the player" or "players" in my text to have a rather formal tone. However, my formal writing is not as rigid as you may suspect as I keep it simple and avoid the use of unnecessary fancy words. I can't help but feel it's getting heavy with too many "players...players...".
Would it be OK to address the reader with personal nouns (you), or even a mix of "players" and "you" to keep it diverse?
