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."

Staff Writer

"I am a die-hard retro, Nintendo, Xbox, 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."

Eric Hall
Staff Writer

"For as long as I can remember, I’ve been playing video games in some capacity. Whether it was flailing about playing Gangster Town on the Sega Master System, or searing my eyes trying to get some enjoyment out of the Virtual Boy, gaming has always been a constant in my life. Due to my upbringing, console gaming remains at the forefront of my attention these days, specifically the PS4 and Xbox One. When I’m not playing something new or trying to pare down my backlog, I enjoy watching whatever happens to be on Turner Classic Movies or making my way through Parks and Recreation for the millionth time."

Drew Calise
Staff Writer

"Some of my most cherished memories revolve around the act of playing video-games. They have on, several instances, brought me closer to my family and friends (and hopefully vice-versa). I love to talk about them and now I have an official chance to do so. I primarily play on PC and generally try anything that peaks my interest. If a game manages to incorporate history/historical elements, I am all over it."

Staff Writer

"I didn't play a videogame that wasn't Snake II or Pokemon Red until I was about 12. Since then I've been trying to make up for lost time, loving anything with a sprawling single-player campaign - from Bioshock to Animal Crossing. And also lots of Halo."
