    Although he has slowed down among years, especially with his gaming content, but his influence on the gaming scene on YouTube won't go uncredited.

    Miss Rene does a really great job in everything she's in from the various hosting partnerships she's had to now being one of the four behind What's Good Games. I like her takes when she goes into the news and being an industry veteran, she knows everyone and understands how a LOT of the business of games works.



  • @Brannox I definitely don't think it's intentional but now that you've put her, I realize this list is dominated by male ppl. So good to see another female added to the list. I count 3 now. Unless some are hidden under a more obsure name.

    I forgot all about her. I mostly saw her on GT and she was always good to listen too.

    @DMCMaster just the individual is fine.

    wooo 4 more to go!



  • @CGamor7 That's been the sad nature of games coverage which is slowly, but indeed surely, becoming less of a thing. Still a LONG way to go, but there are more women in the industry than there was I'll say 5 years ago.

    Say what you want about the fella, I think he's on the short list of reviewers that don't praise every single game that is released. As far as entertainment value, I'd place his reviews at the top - not all of them are fantastic, but many of them reach so far beyond the general structure most of us accept for reviews.

    Oh hey, I'm back on these forums. Glorious day!

    As the name implies he is far more involved with movies nowadays, that said his beginnings with the Game Overthinker series were pretty interesting to me, and for sure some of his content made me start to think more in-depth about gaming and the industry as whole, even if I think if his opinions on the matter can be somewhat close-minded, I still pay attention to pretty much anything he does related to gaming, and I always appreciate his film reviews/analysis

    Andrew Reiner-Gamer Informer Executive editor. He's been a videogame journalist since the early 90's & he still has the love & enthusiasm for videogames. He's not cynical & jaded like alot of his contemporaries, also he super funny & has interesting things to say. The GI podcast is the only one that I listen to beside the Easy allies one.

    There you have it. The top 25 ppl in games approved by the EZA community. There is no one better! Jk. But it's a great list. Thank you everyone to contributing or lurking.

    I've honestly only heard of half this list. I'll definitely have to check some of these ppl out.

    I also want to throw out an honourable mention to Keza MacDonald. She hasn't done much lately because shes been away on parental leave. She's a writer for Kotaku and usually writes really interesting articles. I first enjoyed her work at IGN where I remember her covering the underdog of a game Demon Souls which went on to be a very successful.
