The Writers



Below you’ll find a list of the main video game luminaries that write for Non-Fiction Gaming.

Each gaming writer has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the area of mashing buttons and various other control devices.

And each one specialises in a specific area of gaming analysis. These range from JRPGs, Horror, eSports, News, Interviews, and Events Coverage that shape the gaming world.

What they all have in common is that they offer a unique and independent perspective on the gaming industry.

Of course, when you’ve got this many opinions it means they won’t always agree with each other!

Non-Fiction Gaming itself does not stick to one specific voice, we give our writers freedom to explore the space and give their best analysis. Importantly, this encourages each writer to back up their ideas and analysis. This can only result in a better quality of articles for our readers.

If you’d like to find out more about each of the Non-Fiction Gaming Writers they’ve got social media profiles, article archives, and sometimes even pictures.

Follow them on Twitter. By doing so, you’ll be kept in the loop of useful information related to their gaming interests, and news that could help you find that next enjoyable game.

(Including: being informed of when any new articles they have written are published on the web; being made aware of any special conference events they may be speaking at; and discovering noteworthy items of interest on the web, related to their particular style of gaming interest and platform world view.)

Daniel Ryan
Daniel Ryan – nfgDan

Editor and Content Manager, Non-Fiction Gaming
Dan brings the booming voice and sense of adventure. Striking heroic poses during meetings to try and instill a feeling of awe in his colleagues. Daniel spends the majority of his gaming time split between Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS and PC. If it wasn’t for Morrowind being bundled into a free package years ago Daniel may not have become the Dovahkiin that he is today.

Serena CutterSerena Cutter

It isn’t easy correcting spelling for crayon on the walls or translating words from tape recordings of ramblings that make up drafts at Non-Fiction Gaming. Serena delivers grammar and corrections like an Iaido master, stillness one moment and a flurry of red across your vision the next.


EmmaEmma K – Ekeet

Being the closest thing to an expert on technology and Internet systems, any questions aimed at Emma regarding networks or information technology are met with resounding silence and a blank stare before wandering off. Emma enjoys everything to do with Professor Layton and indulges her inner child with all games from Lego.


EdEd Bridgman – Ed

Strategy games both virtualised and tabletop, FPS, RPGs, MMOs and FPSMMORPGs Ed is a veteran of them all. He boasts a collection of games rivalled in size only by his 40K army and both keep growing and encroaching in to the space usually inhabited by a girlfriend.

KRS 2Christopher – KRS 2

Game Analysis and Reviews
Chris is a long time player of games, starting way back on the NES and having played every generation since. Between him and his brother, they have a ridiculously big library of games… BUT IT’S NEVER ENOUGH!

PortSteven – Mr Port

If you are angry about some obscure corner of gaming there aren’t many people who can say exactly what you were thinking and unable to articulate. Port brings just the right number of dong jokes to keep things light hearted, but through each full stop headbutted into the page you can feel the flared nostrils of bile and metal.


Aidan BAidan B – 

Horror Games, Reviews
From fighting games and Sega fanboyism to trawling the depths of horror, Aidan is a gamer that’s been there, done that, and bought the t-shirt. Nowadays, when not being maimed by zombie mutants in Amnesia, he spends time looking at how video games are fast becoming the next major art form.
