Alex V
Co-Founder, Executive Editor

"I have been gaming since early 90s, starting with the N64 and then PC a few years later. Much time has passed since those days, but the love for the industry grows ever stronger. And what better way to channel that passion than with an outlet. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope you enjoy our website!"

Ben Thomas
Co-Founder, Web Architect

"I've been playing PC games intently since the 90s, including greats like Diablo, Red Alert, Duke 3D. I'm a strong PC game supporter and try to help the platform as much as I can. I prefer First person shooters, but also play many other genres of gaming. My game collection is getting larger each year and I'm a big user of Steam. I play both single player and multiplayer games. I have done some modding work before on various game engines but I'm more a dabbler because I find it fun to learn how to mod games then move on. I visit many game related sites for news and discussions because I like being involved in the game community. Thanks for visiting us!"

Tim Reid
Senior Editor

"Having been an avid PC gamer from a young age, I enjoy playing games from virtually every genre apart from hard-core racing Sims and MMO's. I believe that for a game to be good, it must have well designed and well implemented core-mechanics before flashy visuals and gimmicks. I also enjoy working on and with computers; I am the go-to guy for friends and family when it comes to computer troubles."

Peter Ingham
Special Features Editor

"After a love affair with Mario World when I was about five, I became hooked on gaming and still am to this day. I studied multimedia at college and then went to university and obtained a 1st in Computer Games Design: Story Development (quite a mouthful) in 2009. At the moment I work for a creative content company, work on my own writing and of course contribute to NGN. Next year I plan to get some of my writing published and buy a pair of solid gold sneakers."

Staff Writer

"As a child I struggled against mad jealousy of those playmates who had an SNES or a Sega Genesis. In my teen years I learned to vent my frustration by building starship fleets and arming myself with rocket launchers. My only remaining task before I reach absolute transcendence is to discover the greatest video game in existence. In order to chronicle my quest, I've decided to write reviews. My favorite genres are puzzle and RTS, and my biggest pet peeves are trial-and-error gameplay, jump scares, and gold coins (the absolute lowest form of motivation in a game). I'm especially interested in the Indie gaming market, and I sincerely believe that video games can (and should) reach a level of high artistic value."

"I've been gaming since the Commodore 64 in the 80s, but I really fell in love with it with the Sega Mega-Drive and Sonic. Nowadays, I'm all over anything PlayStation old or new. I arrived late to the 360 party but I enjoyed catching up with some exclusive classics. My favourite genre tends to be the FPS, although my favourite game is Uncharted 2. Or is it Streets of Rage 2?"

Staff Writer

"I was introduced to video games at the tender age of 5, when I performed a hostile take over of Duck Hunt and Super Marion on the original NES. This blossomed into a full on love which drove me to play the latest demo at department store electronic section, invite myself over to a friends house to play the latest game, and eventually turning my mom's PC into my first gaming console. I have journeyed with video games from Sonic the Hedgehog to Resident Evil to Oblivion. I love how games not only show you worlds, you may never see, but they also extend the invitation to come and play in these worlds. Making them different than anything other art form to date."

Staff Writer

"I didn't even touch a keyboard and mouse until the 21st century dawned on us, but from there onward it was just a matter of time before I ended up where I am today. Raised on a diet of demo discs and Quake, with occasional dips into Nintendo's kingdom, nowadays I live for those precious few games that really show us how it's done. I'm stubbornly loyal to the PC and hold a great deal of concern for the future of gaming - indie, AAA, warts and all."

Alex Moore
Staff Writer

"I've been a gamer for as long as I can remember, ever since a SNES and a copy of Super Mario World was passed down to me and my brother in the mid 90's when I was about five. This invariably instilled a long-lasting love affair with not only Nintendo, but the medium itself. Fast forward to the present and I'm still as in love with games as I've ever been, if not more so. I'm particularly interested in storytelling in games, something that has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years. I've recently graduated from a Masters course in Creative Writing and am also working on a Young Adult novel. Frankly, it's madness I hadn't married my passion for writing and video games sooner!"

Staff Writer

"Gaming has made for a host of memorable and significant moments in my life, from the literal controller-throwing rage of Demon's Souls to the pride (and screwdriver-throwing rage) of building my first PC. I can enjoy just about any game if it's well made, and can find fun in poking at the ones that aren't so well made. The current landscape of the industry is strange and continually evolving in unforeseen ways, but that just makes for an exciting ride (most of the time). I'm glad to be able to be creative and produce some content for the internet out of my hobby of choice - gaming."

Staff Writer

"I am a die-hard retro, Nintendo, Xbox 360, and PC gamer, as well as a devout metalhead. When I'm not rocking some Metallica, burning countless hours on Xbox Live, or getting lost in some Super Smash Brothers, I am usually writing, drumming, or watching my beloved Chicago Bulls or Cubs."

Staff Writer

"I started gaming at an early age with the Sega Genesis and my love for the industry increases every year. I grew up a Nintendo kid with iconic franchises like Mario and The Legend of Zelda dominating my playtime. These days my console of choice is the Xbox, but I'll happily hop on any platform to play a game that catches my eye. I'm not picky with what genres I play, but I especially enjoy first-person shooters and open-world RPGs. Outside of gaming, I'm a big ol' history nerd and can probably be found reading up on any infinite amount of topics about the past. I'm also a huge sports fan and cheer on my lowly Buffalo Bills and Sabres. Zero combined championships and counting."
