is a non-profit videogame reviews site staffed entirely by volunteers. We’ve
been a presence on the Internet for over eighteen years (yes, eighteen!) and we’re firm believers
that a proper review scale employs more numbers than just 8, 9 and 10.

We’re always looking for new writers who would like to be published at our site, and many
people who have written for Gamecritics in the past have found great success in the industry.

If you like what we do and would be interested in becoming a part of our team, please contact managing editor Brad Gallaway for more information at

Please note, sponsored articles or link exchange offers are not welcome or accepted.

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 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.
