How to become a game tester and reviewer?

I'm a huge gamer and it would be a dream to test and write reviews but not as a career, more as a hobby,(unless a 16 year old can legally have a job writing reviews.) My question, ( and or questions,) 1st) Do I need to have an official college education to write reviews? 2nd) Is there an age requirement? 3rd) How do you even get started with something like this? All advice appreciated! In case you're thinking negative of my age here, yes, I can write, that won't be a problem. It's just one of those things that comes natural, ya know? Never made below a 90 on an English essay! :D Two things I love to do, write and game. What's better than doing both? Thanks all!
