Charles is the Founder of The Game Fanatics and nonprofit, United We Game. A Full-Time Creative Director and Graphic Designer, he loves video games with a fanatical passion and uses TGF as his outlet for all things geek culture.
Born in Boston, residing in Cincinnati, and playing far too much Magic: the Gathering.
Bridget is the Public Relations Director for The Game Fanatics and Executive Director for United We Game, Inc. She loves all things Marvel and Tekken is her favorite video game.
Nick has been with The Game Fanatics almost since it's origins. He has been in the industry for several years before that, with other sites. He is a married with kids type of gamer. Plays as much as he can, and spends time reading news in the video gaming industry. He is a Gaming Event specialist because of his experience in attending events. He is ALWAYS down to play some games.
When not criticizing some obscure aspect of a game, Ben enjoys relaxing by playing in the infinite pool of Super Mario Maker. He was a Genesis kid growing up but Ocarina of Time made him realize how awesome gaming truly is. Hobbies include: continuing to learn Japanese, videogames (duh), reading (in Japanese and English), writing (also duh), and rock climbing. He is also a secret member of the PC gaming master race.
Alena is a tech and gaming enthusiast. You can catch her on a live stream or run into her at conventions. Follow her on twitter for updates!
If he's not writing about video games or playing them, Carlos is likely drinking an ice cold beer.
What was once an innocent interest in video games has become Max's ultimate hobby. Ask him about Halo, Batman, Fallout, or Witcher and you'll get an earful for hours on end. When he's got the spare time, he likes to indulge in literature, working out, and going on runs with his dog.
More than a little coocoo for Cocoa Puffs, but great at hiding it. When Muaz isn't gaming he can usually be found reading from a mountain of comic books or watching an obscene amount of movies.
Richard is a super stuffy academic video game critic shoved inside a 19 year old kid who really likes large explosions, and tries to blend those two things into something that tricks people into thinking he's smart. He likes walking simulators, AAA blockbusters, and, sometimes, things other than video games. Rarely.
O'Dell is a Texas native who began his love of gaming in 1994 with a Sega Genesis and a copy of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. As the years went on his love turned into a deep passion causing him to do crazy things like travel the world just to play video games. When he isn't gaming he loves to eat, dance, and travel the globe. O'Dell is no super hero though. He is simply a Pokemon master who has conquered all video game genres except for horror because he will lose it.
Eva is a cheerful Spaniard living in Berlin, where she works as a community manager. When not dealing with trolls or leveling up her Diplomacy mad skills, she can be found gaming, tasting Belgian beer and travelling around the globe.
Graduated in 2014. Starting working in the real world. Retreated further into false ones. Started writing about it.
Jesse has been playing games since he could remember. Starting with Sonic The Hedgehog on the Genesis to The Last Of Us on the PlayStation, he plays everything he can get his hands on. He has been writing about games for over two years now.
Marcus loves games and it's as simple as that. Mostly all kinds of games besides sports. Marcus enjoyed gaming at the early age of 4 when he discovered titles such as Sonic, Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Is he a huge nerd? Yes... yes he is.
James graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a B.A. in English. Along with being obsessed with video games, he's a published fiction writer and poet.
Ryan is an aspiring game and media writer with a interest in anything vaguely nerdy. As you read this trust he's probably watching anime or playing some obscure JRPG. His spirit animal is either a coyote or Dame Judi Dench
I am a Graduate student at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, and I'm currently working on my Master's degree in English. I typically look at video games as though they could be a work of literature, and so I often apply literary theories such as postmodernism, deconstructionism, and structuralism to games in an attempt to find the hidden meanings within them. I do try to keep that side of me from overwhelming the part of me that just wants to have fun with gaming, however, and I do enjoy playing games just to blow things up and win the fight. Oh, and I recently married my wonderful Kayla last May!
Maie is a self-taught makeup artist who decided to merge her passion for video games and makeup into a single entity so that she could spend more time playing Witcher 3. You can find her on Twitter (@MaieAiyed), Snapchat (maieaiyed), and Instagram (@MaieAiyed).
Alex is an aspiring narrative designer. Much of his spare-time is spent delving more into the logic behind storytelling. When he isn't reading or gaming, he's probably sleeping.
Meghan grew up trolling through jungles with Crash Bandicoot. It was a pleasant endeavor but after a while she realized her tastes had changed and a little more violence was necessary. She lovingly transitioned over to Xbox and PC, blasting her way through the likes of Halo, Guild Wars, Smite, and a plethora of other games. Her love of gaming and nerd culture brought her to the world of cosplay, and she hasn't looked back since.
