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!"

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."

"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."

"Gaming has always been a part of my life. From my formative years playing any Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda title I could get my hands on, to this very day where I still surround myself in as many interesting releases as possible. I love games so much that I'm learning to make them, studying both Computer Science and Games Technology at University. I can't wait to one day show the world my games, but in the meantime I'm more than happy to share all the thoughts I have about them!"

Staff Writer

"The earliest gaming memory I have is bringing a Game Boy Advance and a copy of Pokémon Ruby absolutely EVERYWHERE with me. Actually, most of my video game memories seem to involve me gaming at inappropriate times, whether it was playing a Nintendo DS under the sheets past bedtime, or sneaking out my brother’s PS2 while he was at school. As a sort-of adult, the only real difference is that I own the consoles myself now, but that certainly doesn’t stop me playing the Switch when I should probably be doing something else. I recently earned my degree in English, so when I’m not gaming, I’m usually reading!"

Staff Writer

"My first real gaming experiences were spread between the PS1 and the PC with games like Lego Racing and Spider-Man 2 Enter Electro. Since then, I've worn out every Sony console as well as building up my steam library with a mix of classic and new releases. I have a real love for story driven games and RPGs like Deus Ex and Mass Effect as well as strategy games where you can essentially create your own narrative. I studied law at university and went to Bar school but right now I'd rather judge Phoenix Wright than be him."
