hall of fame
In case anyone wanted some new games writers to follow, someone was kind enough to make this handy-dandy guide!
Do any of them have Tumblrs?
Jeff Gerstmann, Brad Shoemaker, Patrick Klepek, and Alex Navarro do. Dunno about the rest. You should probably follow Zoe Quinn too, considering how this all started.
Cara Ellison is definitely worth following. Her Embed With series focuses on travelling across the world and sleeping on couches of developers that would have her, including Harvey Smith (Dishonored), Karla Zimonja (Gone Home), Nina Freeman (How do the do it) and many other fantastic game makers.
It’s a deeply personal series and Cara Ellison talks honestly about her life, sex, immigration detention facilities and journalistic integrity when sleeping with Alice O’Connor in the same bed and how it feels to be the smaller spoon and being forced to eat vegan food.
So great to see Jim Sterling on here. It really highlights how divorced from the real world these MRA dropkicks are. Is Mr. “I Like Boobies and Beer” on here as well? (I can’t remember if that was Ben Kuchera or someone else who manages to be a dudebro without being absolutely feral.)
