  • Nearly aggressively quirky, when I am not trying out some game no one's ever heard of I can be found writing, hiking a metropark trail, or taking care of my carnivorous plants. As much as I love triple A titles, I find the most joy in finding and telling people about games that they may have missed with major titles absorbing all the attention.

  • United States
  • A gamer at heart and a critic at brain.

    Writing has always been a very passionate hobby of mine, and combined with my interest in dissecting the interests I pursue, resulted in my aspiration to become a full-fledged critic. My love for games is more firmly entrenched in Nintendo's archive, but I'm excited about the opportunities present in other companies, most notably indie companies. Trying to find my place in the world, I show my hand more often than I would in the past.

  • Jake Mellor
  • United Kingdom
  • I'm Jake, you're not. I'm sarcastic, British, a Whovian, a YouTuber, a Slytherin, the Sultan of Brunei, Annoying, and have a tendency to lie when listing things (I'm actually a Ravenclaw).

    I play video games and write things. Not always at the same time though, as that's pretty difficult. I admire anyone who can, though.

    My favourite games of all time would probably be Worms Armageddon (the original), Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, The Last of Us (yes, I cried), TES IV: Oblivion (it's better than Skyrim, and Bethesda need to remaster it NOW!) and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which is, quite simply, the best game in a long time.

    I can be found making Let's Plays and other rubbish content on YouTube- you can check it out if you get very, very bored and have watched literally every other video on the internet: http://www.youtube.com/DevilboyScooby

  • Hey, I'm a very busy man with not much of a plan. I'm currently seeking employment to help support myself through this last year of college, and I write reviews here, for your approval. I mostly do retro or last-gen titles, since I'm not wealthy enough to grab new games and I tend to prefer AAA or generally well-built games to cookie-cutter indie titles or god forbid, shovelware. I love horror and action, and will most certainly try anything that seeks to combine the two!

  • Jorge C. Moraga
  • Spain
  • Since I was a child I liked video games and great stories, which made me start writing for myself and to love games with deep and intriguing narrations. RPGs are my drug and medicine. MMOs attract me just as much because of the people I meet and the gameplay they offer.

    PC has always been my console and my notebook. I can do so many things apart from gaming that I just can't find the same excitement in any other platform. Don't misunderstand me, there are lots of games worth my time there (Monster Hunter, for example) yet PC is my comfort zone.

    Finally, I do love to travel as well. Is my other face and to balance it with my gaming life is kind of hard to do but worth it nonetheless.

If you put 1 and 1 together you might reach the conclusion that I'm obsessed with Japanese games. Well, my friend, you are completely and utterly correct. I like almost any genre, but my favorite is, unsurprisingly, JRPGs. Now I'm working part time as psychologist while playing games and writing articles about those games!

  • Hello there,

    I came into gaming quite a bit later than all the cool kids. My first machine was a bulky, cube like PC that arrived one delightful Christmas at the age of eleven. Playing videogames has since been my number one activity in my spare time. So much so that I don't really remember what on earth I did for fun before the age of eleven! Fast forward a decade and my writing life has already involved running a gaming blog online, professionally editing documents for clients around the world and now - it's Keen Gamer. Happy to be here!

  • I remember the exact moment I first played a video game. I was roughly five years old, and my mom had just come up with a big brown bag. She had just come back from a yard sale and had brought something home for me. Inside was an NES, a copy of "The Legend of Zelda", and "Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt combo", complete with light gun. Up until that point, I don't think I knew what a video game was, but after getting it all set up, and playing for about five minutes I ran to that yard sale and bought every game I could afford. I walked away with "Metal Gear," "Lifeforce," and "Rampart." I was hooked. Later on I would try to rent a copy of "Tiny Toons" for the SNES and was confused why it didn't fit into the NES. I like to think I've gotten a little better at understanding video games since then.

    I can enjoy anything from an RPG whose hours go into the triple digits, to a casual match-3 game I can play in bursts of five minutes each. When I'm not playing games (and sometimes even when I'm playing games), I'm enjoying comics, movies, and television shows from today and yesterday (haven't mastered getting content from tomorrow, but I'll let you know).
