Editorial Staff

Daniel George, editor

I've been an avid fan of video games since I was a wee lad. Toronto, Canada; born and raised. Staff writer for FanSided network blogs since 2012 and an Editor for GameSided since its humble beginnings in 2013. I'm not sure what's more likely to happen first: a Blue Jays World Series or a Final Fantasy VI HD Remake. I'll be patiently waiting for both. Contact me: [email protected]

Rebekah Valentine, Staff Writer

I'm a bookworm and a devourer of all stories. By day I keep busy with community theatre, gardening, improv, and writing, but by night I'm happiest with an epic RPG, a powerful shooter, or a colorful adventure game. My dream is to write an epic novel to shake the ages, or become a Pokemon master...or both!

I grew up in Wisconsin, where my brother and I participated in one sided battles where he'd beat me in everything from GoldenEye to SmackDown. Now I'm the older brother and do the same to my nephew. I'm just doing my part to make sure the circle of life continues.

Mytheos Holt, Staff Writer

Mytheos Holt has a long track record of experience publishing on video game related issues, especially those relating to the politics of video gaming. He first began writing on the subject for TheBlaze.com, where his review of Bioshock Infinite earned plaudits from Penny Arcade, Misfit Politics and Mic, as well as a personal thank you email from the game's creator for its balance. Since then, he has defended the idea of video games as a form of speech that should be free of government regulation at the R St Institute, and pushed back on the idea that video games cause violence/sexism in right-leaning outlets such as TheBlaze, Townhall and NakedDC. He has been playing video games since he first received a copy of "Donkey Kong Country" on Super Nintendo at the age of 7. He lives in Arlington, VA.

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
