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.

Certainly I’ve enjoyed stealth games, MGSV most recently. Maybe it was one of the Fallouts? Dunno. Maybe a superfan can come up with it. Do we have superfans?

Corey: 20+ completions of Human Revoloosh? That’s like a 20 hour game, isn’t it? Think of all the World of Warcraft you could have been playing instead.

That sounds right….

Thanks guys. I’ll take a mini-sode, then nothing at all. I tried playing mankind divided on PS4 but so many things in it made me, delay, playing the game. I’ll play it on PC in about a year or so. Or later. The early combat similarity of how familiar it was too human Revolution put me off a bit. Splinter cell blacklist combat quality, this game is not. Improved from HR but I’ll give it a chance to grow on me later The audio engineering mix overall was really poor. Gun sounds, environmental sounds and ambience, enemy voices etc, were… Read more »
