Staff

Join our team!

Do you love writing about games, and are you good at it? If so, you might be a terrific fit right here at HonestGamers! While we are always looking to build our team of volunteers (none of us are getting paid for this), we've found it tends to work best if we get to know you before taking more official steps. Just sign up for a free account and you can start submitting reviews today. If we like what we see, and if you find you enjoy participating in the community, that's a good time to talk about expanding your role and hooking you up with review keys so you can stay busy. Most of our current staff members started as readers, and look at them now. They're writing about games and living large. That could be you!

EmP
We wish we could survive without EmP, but he's long since become a necessary evil we endure rather than enjoy. We thought we got rid of him once, but he quickly rose back to power, like a British Mickey Rourke, just with laser breath and nasty habits like constant complaining and overt meanness. When he's not penning reviews on anything from cutting-edge next-gen titles to long-forgotten Mega CD games (he makes us refer to all consoles by their PAL name and spell 'colour' with the 'u') he can be found lurking in dark corners with a sly smirk and what we fear might be a tin of gasoline and a box of matches. Please help us keep him busy. Our homes may depend on it!

Jason's bio is the best of all, and the shortest too! Clearly he's not over-compensating for anything.

JoeTheDestroyer
We're pretty sure that JoeTheDestroyer was created in the '90s when a truckload of toxic waste collided with a video rental store. After rising from the resultant pool of sludge, he waited until 2010 to begin typing reviews of ancient and/or obscure video games and movies. While selecting a venue for his onslaught, he happened upon our site and we haven't been rid of him since.

Masters
Those who have contributed much to the site at all in recent times have probably run into Masters. When he's not updating listings (you know, the boring part of working on the site) and the like, he's providing critiques and making the site a better place to be in general. Always quick to lend a helping hand when it's needed, Marc has made it clear that there are many wannabes but only one master.

Rob Hamilton (Editor)

overdrive
When someone like overdrive asks if he can join site staff, you have to ask yourself the same question he did: "Why not?" So when overdrive did ask, our answer was the very same question: "Why not?" It doesn't hurt that overdrive brings with him some insane knowledge about old shooters and various other scraps of the retro realm. It doesn't hurt at all!
