Jeff represents the one of newest generations of gaming journalist; the generation that began gaming during the era of Playstation 2, Gamecube, Xbox, and, just to cover all the bases, Dreamcast. Despite being relatively new in the industry, he is just as passionate as someone who first picked up a controller thirty years ago, sometime before he was even born. Comics interest him, troll dolls confuse him, and the sun from Super Mario Bros. 3 haunts him.

James is a college student that enjoys writing about his passions, mainly video games. A staunch video game supremacist, his mortal enemy is the "cinematic experience." He prefers solid controls, intuitive game design, and fun game play above all else, because that's what sets video games at the forefront of entertainment. If you feel the same way feel free to follow him on twitter @JamesAdamWynne.
Max is the Managing Editor of The Game Fanatics. When he's not at the gym and or producing some fiction writing in his spare time, Max can be found regurgitating Halo's extensive lore to the unaccustomed or sinking countless hours into a BioWare or Bethesda RPG. Whenever Fallout 4 arrives, expect Max to hide away from all society for weeks on end.
Adam is looking for good storytelling above all else. Give him a Bioware or Telltale game and he’ll be unreachable for hours, maybe even days. Oh, he also likes writing. That’s why he’s here.
Myles is a soulless redhead that feeds on the innocence of children to survive. Video games, especially good ones (see Bioshock Infinite, Metal Gear Solid Series or Smash Bros. for examples) keep him satiated for the most part. He also sometimes bangs on a keyboard until words are made in the form of articles, tweets, books and otherwise. Don't look him in the eyes.
Keith's an explorer, someone who looks for adventure and fun. Sometimes it's seeking out breathtaking vistas in the harsh wilderness of Skyrim, other times it's running screaming from Deathclaws in the Capital Wasteland. Now he's an explorer of gaming news, bringing updates to the masses. Ask him about his video game tattoos, he won't shut up about them.
Zach spends most of his time digging up engrams by shooting into a cave on Earth...Joking, but seriously...He finds most of his time being spent around his Playstation consoles, digesting the newest information in video game related products/services, and bringing you the best in a timely fashion. That is until the raiding starts...Where did he run off to?!
