A lifelong gamer that was first drawn in by the challenge they posed, but hooked by the beautiful, immersive worlds that can only be found in gaming.
I want to see video games continue to push the boundaries with bigger and bolder ideas; less sequels and more new IPs. The best way to do that is to be as honest a critic as you can be, no free passes.
Hello Everyone, my name is Alex!!! I am currently a History Major in College and would love to be a Professor one day. One of my biggest passions in life is video games, which would explain what I'm doing here. I also love music and have taken piano and classical guitar lessons. My favorite color is blue, my favorite football team is the Broncos, and my favorite food is Chicken Parmesan. I'm not sure what else to say. Thanks for reading :p
South African by descent, but a gamer by choice. I like writing. I like gaming. I'm a girl. Those are three sentences rarely said together, but should be. What else defines me as a person? Oreo McFlurrys. And RPGs. Put them together and you have yourself the perfect Saturday night.
Your favourite day of week decided to combine two of his most favourite things to do; write 'stuff' and play video games.
I'm 18 and like to play just about anything and everything that involves a great story and fun gameplay mechanics. It's an instant hit if it includes both of those things. The original Half-Life was one of the first, proper PC games that I ever touched and those pesky headcrabs haunted my dreams. I switch between games extremely often because I guess I enjoy a variety... I'm also a huge fan of every Call of Duty game. I promise I'm still a good person.
Also, that's my serious "I enjoy this game" expression. I can't ever take a normal selfie.
One day a worker from Santa's workshop decided to take a trek to explore the world and answer some of life's greatest questions: What are the reasons for Man's inhumanity to Man? Does objective reality exist? Who invented ceiling fans? How does one become a ceiling fan designer? His journey took him far and wide. He trudged through the rough but intriguing peaks of political discourse. He fought through leagues of sound as became encompassed in a sea of music. He even got lost in the weird but endearing play house of anime. However during his journey he found a place he could not describe in adequate terms. It was a place where the roads of written words mixed in perfect unison with the engrossing winds of video games; he had found a home. He then lived happily ever after. Well actually he just moved in on the border and spent his time throwing rocks at hobbits and yelling at tax collectors.
Follow me on Twitter: @RuskinOfBeard sometimes I tweet about sports (Go Saints, Red Wings, Pirates, and Celtics) sometimes I tweet about politics (why can't we be friends) sometimes I just retweet things I think are funny. Follow at your own risk.
I am a prolific gamer. Since the days of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, I have spent a fair amount of time playing video games. My favorite genre is RPG, emphasis on JRPG, with games like Final Fantasy 10, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Dark Cloud, Legend of Dragoon and many other classics. I am a big fan of PlayStation, which I believes speaks volumes to a lot of individuals in this forum. I am also a big fan of Super Smash bros. (Marth/Yoshi Main) and I enjoy catching up with the tournaments that take place on Twitch. I look forward to learning more about games and sharing my knowledge with the Keengamer community.
Just a fair journalist, always bouncing from one site or another, I write reviews and various articles on the gaming industry. While being mostly PC-centric, I do own consoles to cover the spectrum of releases, always looking to try new things in things and always going back to old classics like Megaman and Kingdom Hearts for reminders of what passionate game design is like.
I am a versatile skill-set gamer with a great enthusiasm to learn new things. I was born and raised in Brazil, and came to live in the United States with a luggage filled with dreams and goals. I enjoy writing and working on the next step to become better on everything I do. Aside from playing video games that range from Pokemon to FIFA, I also enjoy dogs, outdoor activities and traveling. I am always looking forward to new opportunities to learn, grow, and reach new dreams.

Hi, guys! My name is Dmytro. I'm 26 years old. I have been playing computer games since I was 3. Over the years, I played dozens of games. It is hard to remember or name them all. In my games section, you'll find the games that I have played/'am playing now.
About myself? Well, I've been working in games journalism industry since 2016. I'm currently acquiring a Degree in Journalism at the University of Regina in Canada and, in terms of gaming, I'm a huge fan of pretty much all genres, but in terms of consoles, I have to go with Sony.
Hey there! I'm Ewan. I've been writing for various publications over the past few years and have finally found myself writing for KeenGamer. I collect video games, amassing a collection of over 1100 games for various consoles. Other than that I don't really do much else, I write, I read and I game.
I also do a lot of karaoke, although have the ability to sing like a bear that has recently had throat surgery.
An enthusiast video game journalist, Gabriel is from Northeastern Brazil. Growing up with nothing but a GBC he fell in love with the industry and after acquiring his first computer, he made up his lack of previous experience with extensive research and hours upon hours playing titles such as Phantasy Star Online, FINAL FANTASY, and Dark Souls. Today Gabriel is the proud owner of an ever-growing Steam account, an old Nintendo DSi and an autographed photo of Kit Harington.
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.
Favourite games for selected consoles:
PC: Worms Armageddon PS1: Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon PS2: The Simpsons: Hit and Run PS3: The Last of Us (even though, technically, I played it on PS4) PS4: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt 360: Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 One: Don't have one, as I sold it because I'd rather not play a game of Minesweeper just to load up a game, after waiting an hour for the disc to install.
Other notable games/series include TES (personally I prefer Oblivion to Skyrim in all but mechanics - except for lockpicking. Oblivion's lockpicking was boss), Fallout New Vegas, LEGO Racers, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Crash Bandicoot, Rock Band 3, and, rather boringly, OMSI Bus Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2, because they're mindless procrastination fodder.
I can be found making Let's Plays and other rubbish content on YouTube- http://www.youtube.com/DevilboyScooby
I'm one of those people that loves video-games. But , perhaps more importantly , I love the industry. I play pretty much anything that is served in front of me ; with particular fancy to single player story driven experiences and a dislike for sports games. (obviously). I've ventured my way from Nintendo , through Xbox and am now a proud Playstation supporter. I'd rather not start wars over consoles , but rather the rising amount of trash that fills our digital stores - I also like to rant. When I'm not playing games , I'm reading about them ; and when I'm not reading , I'm writing about them.
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 similar. I love horror and action, and will most certainly try anything that seeks to combine the two!

Joel Franey was born in 1994, at midnight in the midst of floods, pestilence and famine. It was said that he would reveal himself to the world in order to bring about an age of darkness, and that only a true hero could slay this terrible beast.
The hero showed up later on, but Joel complained at him until he went away. He plans to begin the aforementioned age of darkness "when I've got some bloody time in my schedule, alright?"
I'm Jordan. A fan of all things games, but with a specific and some might say obsessive tendency towards FIFA. When I'm not on the pitch you can find me hundreds of hours deep into Western RPGS, getting the adrenaline pumping with some first person shooters or simply beating the life out of someone in WWE or UFC.
A young and limber guy who likes games as much as he likes life. I play a lot, an excessive almost sickening amount of video games. I almost have my Bachelor's degree in Media Studies with a minor in Film Studies. Basically I'm a nerd who likes anything technology, I build PC's and play mostly PC games. I also have a youtube, youtube.com/aburntturkey and a twitch, twitch.tv/aburntturkey I know a lot about tech and hardware also mobile devices!
~ See you all in the article/ game review section ;)
Salutations! My name is Kion Karimi and I'm an aspiring gaming journalist. My passion is to always to just write and inform people about the truth whether it be really bad or good. I am lead by my honesty and nothing else. I am currently in community college getting my journalism degree and I work a part time job. I like to work out, spend time with my girlfriend, listen to alternative screamo and play video games in my spare time. :)
I know the names, types and evolved forms of all 151 original Pokemon. I used to play Command and Conquer: Red Alert so much that I dreamt of completing the campaign every night. I've played over 1000 hours of Civilization V. I once played a 16 hour game of Risk and won. I have a deep appreciation for llamas, pandas and pizza. My elbows can bend about 30° in the wrong direction, obviously I use this to freak people out. I have a spectacular wife and a beautiful baby boy, he has my eyes.
If that's not a complete life then I don't know what is.
I'm 20 years old and I've been a gamer since I was 10, when I fell into the wonderful and amazing world of MMORPG's that led me to experience heavier game genres in the long run such as action, adventure, simulation and strategy. I do tend to focus a little bit more on Role-Playing type of games, because it's my root in the gaming world, but I intend to cover every news and make reviews of any interesting and relevant game around. I also like to talk about controversial titles, anyone remember No Man's Sky ? Yeah, I like to talk about this kind of contoversial titles, so you all can expect that too. My writing style is personal and close to the reader while trying not to be too informal.
Hello! My name is Michael Keener, and I am an aspiring student of Business, with a passion for writing about videogames. I've been participating in the journalist community for awhile now and have loved every minute of it. My goal is to bring enjoyment and personal opinions that may help you make the hard choice between which games to play next.
I'm a dad, and a long time gamer going right back to the days of Pac Man and Kings Quest 3. My favourite pass time has lead me into becoming a freelance writer, researching and expressing my love for gaming through the written word.
Someone in his early-20s who has a knack for gaming, writing and unpopular opinions (all three tend to go hand-in-hand sometimes). I've been playing video games since I was 4 years old and I also create music and edit videos in my spare time. Favourite game of all time has to be Crash Bandicoot 2 for the PS1, but I love puzzle games, simulation games and platform games with a passion.
Hey! My names Michael, im an aspiring video game reviewer, recently finished college after passing a two year course in video game development. Trying to achieve my goal as becoming a full time video game journalist, along with writing for this site i also write for my own blog and also have my own YouTube channel!
I'm a huge Kingdom Hearts fan and also a movie lover. My favorite movie of all time is The Dark Knight. I make youtube videos as well as write about all kinds of things. I hope to continue making people happy with gaming news and one day write stories for video games!
No holds barred Editor-at-Large and definitely not the intern of a bat themed masked vigilante. My quest to uncover the hidden gems of the gaming world will never be complete, but siren call of discovery is too much to resist. I've immersed myself in countless virtual worlds from the sand, sharp-toothed shores of Ark: Survival Evolved to the pixelated paradise of Dad Quest. I've gone toe to toe with heroes in Overwatch and most recently stepped into the shoes of the samurai in For Honor.
Gaming is a passion I live and breathe. Story, artwork, adventure, music...the medium is truly unique in its presentation and design. Just when I think I've finished that last quest and gained the last experience point, there's something new and fresh on the horizon.
I'm a mid-twenties lady from Scotland, who has a mad obsession with video games, and everything that goes along with them since I was about 3 years old. I mostly play FPS's and RPG's but also love a good third person shooter, and will honestly play just about anything. My favourite games of all time are 1. Mass Effect 1 (even though 2 is the best in the trilogy), 2. Borderlands 2, and 3. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
I am generally an optimistic person, easy going and laid back. Just started trying to get into video game journalism as a career and studied the art on various websites for about 30 minutes last week. Now, I will hope to have a long and prosperous career with this site and the many who will hopefully read the content presented. On my days off I usually watch kids and enjoy whatever comes to mind, be it a game, movie, show, or just going out with friends or family. Overall, I live simple, yet enjoyable, life.

I was born in Oxford in 1998 and have been gaming for almost my entire life. I want to see this industry evolve as a storytelling medium and deliver experiences that stay with people. Interactivity is a narrative device that only games can employ, and I'm looking forward to seeing where it can take us.
Gaming enthusiast who has recently graduated from university. First discovered a passion for gaming at a young age when I had my Sega Megadrive. Gaming isn't my only hobby as I also like to keep healthy by going to the gym and travel! I enjoy a good story driven RPG and recently became a fan of the MOBA genre.
A good ol' boy from South Carolina, I now live in the Land of the Rising Sun, training under only the best samurai and fighting giant robots...and occasionally finding the time to play games. I love movies, music, books, foreign languages, and of course, video games.
I was was born in the states (Maine) and am currently teaching English in Asia. I love video games, music, hiking, and learning new languages. I also enjoy to read, and I studied a lot of literature and creative writing in university.
I absolutely love adventure and RPG's but I am open to all games and genres and enjoy anything that is new and different from the pack.
