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."

Josh Hinke
Senior Editor

"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."

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."

"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."

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."

Charlie Nicholson
Staff Writer

"The Crash Bandicoot series saw my initiation into gamerdom, and since my infantile sausage fingers found comfort in the PS1's tethered controller, I've spent many a curtain-sheltered hour occupied within the realms of console releases, with the occasional venture toward the keyboard and mouse. Oftentimes I take a wrong turn and end up in Bubsy 3D, but it's all an adventure. Console romanticism aside, I'm interested in what games have to say, and how they're developing their own voice as a medium. And I'm only a little bit embarrassed that Super Mario Land keeps spelling my defeat."

"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."
