About Us

The Game Fanatics is a geek culture community run by a team of diverse content creators.  We are the nerds our friends ask whether or not the new Mortal Kombat game slaps, which anime not to miss this season, or if that new smart TV holds up to true 4K gaming. The weebs who’ll walk you through our personal ranking of Hov’s discography, the most useless keyblades in Kingdom Hearts history, and the Attack on Titan lore without skipping a beat or scuffing our grails. 

Game Fanatics at E3 2019
"Growing up as someone who looked like me - it wasn’t often you’d see someone like you on the other side of the screen. Especially when we’re talking about gaming and tech coverage. So 10 years ago I set out to do something about it. I created The Game Fanatics as a space for diverse voices to share their passion for gaming and geek culture with the world. From our exclusive interviews, event coverage, game reviews, podcasts, streams, and more. "
