Richard Naik

Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Richard received his first console (the NES) at the age of six, and from that point on games have been an integral part of his life, whether it's been frittering summers away with the likes of Mario, Mega Man, and the Zerg or partaking in marathon sessions of Halo, Team Fortress 2 or Left 4 Dead. After being a longtime reader of GameCritics, Richard joined the staff in March of 2009, and over the years Richard grew into the more prominent role of part-time podcast host.

In 2016, he spearheaded a complete rebuild of the GameCritics.com website, earning him the title of Chief Engineer.

His gaming interests are fairly eclectic, ranging from 2D platformers to old-school-style adventure games to RPGs to first-person shooters. So in other words, he’ll play pretty much anything.

Thanks guys for another terrific podcast! It’s great to have most of the gang back together and hearing your wildly different perspectives. I hope you’ll all return again for a later show to review 2013.

Having a fuller discussion of recently played games is what most listeners want most of all. Having Sinan as a guest works well ( how does he do those late nights in England ?) Big thanks Sinan. Tim is always a pleasure for his discussion and humour. For myself Arkham Origins was a poor money maker that proves the necessity of game rentals. I got to the 1st boss battle with Croc and that fight is a shit button mashing, linear, one chance to dodge scripted boss attack, time warp to the PS1. Fuck that. Beyond is a jumbled mess… Read more »
