Why trust us?

GamesRadar+ takes pride that our reviews and best lists are independent and free from any commercial considerations. We never take money for reviews or for placements in our best lists and buying guides. 

Our team will sometimes take trips and other hospitality to attend shows or see products. That doesn't affect how we think or write about those products or games, but it does affect whether we can cover certain products or events, particularly when otherwise we would not have had that coverage opportunity. 

The majority of review products are sent to us by the companies involved, and the majority are a direct result of a review request. We only review products that we have selected ourselves and that are worth reviewing. We always return products on request or at the end of our agreed loan period. 

You can read more about our approach to reviewing and scoring in our guide, which includes what our scores mean.

Affiliate & Advertising disclosure

We always aim to provide unbiased editorial created by our journalists and writers. We also need to pay our teams and website costs so we make money in a number of ways. We sometimes use affiliate links to products and services on retailer sites for which we can receive compensation if you click on those links or make purchases through them. From time to time we also publish advertorials (paid-for editorial content) and sponsored content on the site. When this is the case the content is clearly marked as sponsored or promoted, so you’ll always know which content is editorial and which is not. Future PLC is our parent company and has an in-depth terms and conditions page with a lot more information that you can read right here

The majority of the content on GamesRadar+ is created solely by our editorial team and its contributors. However, on occassion, we also work with external partners to create content we hope our readers will find useful and interesting. This article explains how we fund this content that's created for GamesRadar+.

Sam Loveridge

After realizing fashion journalism definitely wasn't for me while working in Singapore, I wandered back into my safe zone of tech journalism before landing a gig writing about my one true love: video games. I've worked at TrustedReviews, Digital Spy, Fandom, and dabbled with bouts of freelance prior to GR+, but my GamesRadar+ family finally feels like home. Particularly because they realize that my Pokemon obsession is a pro, not a con. Or at least that's what they tell me anyway. So now I'm the lady in charge of GamesRadar, but also getting all the reviews up on the website, so you can thank me for all those shining stars – or blame me for a lack of them. I also spend my time working my SEO magic to try and coax the Google Juice to flow in our favor.

Rollin Bishop, US Managing Editor at GamesRadar+
Rollin Bishop

My first job in this industry was managing the official unofficial Kingdom of Loathing fansite in 2006, and it’s all been downhill since then. Jokes aside, that position segued into freelancing for the likes of IGN, GameSpy, Motherboard, and many like them. Over the years, my beats grew more eclectic into anime, internet culture, comics, and much more, culminating prior to my current role in a position at ComicBook.com as Gaming Editor while still contributing across the site’s many verticals. As the US Managing Editor at GamesRadar+, I help keep the wheels turning during US hours.

Ali Jones, Deputy News Editor at GamesRadar
Ali Jones

After a few years writing for my university newspaper and with a shiny new gaming PC on my desk, my games writing career kicked off when I joined PCGamesN in the summer of 2017. Over the following two years, I wrote more about League of Legends than anyone outside Riot (or at least that's how it felt), and spent an extremely jet-lagged weekend in Seattle for Valve's reveal of Artifact. That was a more impressive anecdote in 2018 than it is now, but I did get to meet Gabe Newell. In 2019, I left PCGN to become Kotaku UK's news editor, from where I eventually joined Gamesradar in 2020. As News Editor, I'm running our gaming news output, working with my team to find the most interesting stories out there, all while working on my master plan - turning GR+ into a site where I can write all the League of Legends articles I want.

After fetching masters degrees in journalism and history, I spent a few years freelancing for local newspapers and gaming outlets like Kotaku UK, RockPaperShotgun, and VG24/7 before popping up at PCGamesN. I worked my way up to the role of Acting News Editor while shaping the website’s news output and reporting on all the weird and wonderful shenanigans that communities get up to. That’s not too different to what I do here at GamesRadar+, except I have the remit to tell you that Growlithe is absolutely the best Pokemon. When not bottom fragging in Valorant, you’ll find me tootling through Final Fantasy 14 looking for Eorzea’s hottest new fashion trend.

Austin Wood, Staff Writer at GamesRadar
Austin Wood

I worked as a freelance games journalist for six years before wearily staggering into the house of GamesRadar+, where I was welcomed with open arms and a frankly alarming amount of dog GIFs. This means my soul is measured in content, and also that you may have seen me around. I've written for PC Gamer, Eurogamer, IGN, RockPaperShotgun, Sports Illustrated, and plenty of others over the years. I also received a journalism degree at some point and they haven't asked for it back, so here I am, writing the best bad similes of my career. On GamesRadar, I write about the day-to-day goings-on of the games industry. I spend most of my time picking out the important bits from the never-ending flood of trailers and announcements, but I also find some of my favorite stories in creative communities and weird rabbit holes.

Catherine Lewis

Ever since I laid my hands on Pokemon Pearl and discovered the joy of collecting cute and quirky virtual creatures, I've been unable to stop talking about video games. Many years later, whilst earning my journalism degree and filling The University of Sheffield's student newspaper with all of the indie game content I could, I realised that writing about games wasn't just fantastic fun, but also something that I could do for a real job. What a revelation! Flash forward a few years, and I've been a GAMINGbible journalist, TechRadar Gaming's news writer, and now I reside at GamesRadar+ where I work with the rest of the news team to produce cool gaming stories. I adore a good story-driven RPG (Xenoblade Chronicles is my all-time favorite), and I've never grown out of my all-consuming love of Pokemon, nor will I ever.

Author Bio
Anna Koselke

From the moment I took my first steps within Kokiri Forest to the fateful day I loaded into Skyrim as an angsty tween, so many of my most memorable moments relate to gaming somehow. When I wasn't traversing fantastical realms in video games, I was reading about them instead or world-building myself. I eventually went off to study literature at The University of Edinburgh, completing my postgraduate studies in medieval history afterwards. With two nerdy degrees under my belt, a penchant for writing, and way too many hours in games, I chose to work as a journalist while doing my own narrative design on the side. I wrote for Fanbyte, GameSpot, IGN, PCGamesN, and many other sites before settling here at GamesRadar+ where I now get to profess my undying love for Baldur's Gate 3 (professionally, of course). If I'm not romancing Astarion for the hundredth time, I'm probably feeding my Tamagotchis or am deeply invested in a cozy game.

After graduating from university with a BA (Hons) in Film Industries & Creative Writing, I attempted to start my career by running my own blog where I wrote about animation, film, TV, and video games. By late 2020, I managed to land my first industry job as a PR Intern at Player Two PR where I assisted in the release of several indie games. I was then lucky enough to get the opportunity to be a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar. I like to think of myself as the Animal Crossing: New Horizons news correspondent however when I'm not covering the latest on island life I'm also writing about The Last of Us, Pokemon, and wishing every day for some Kingdom Hearts news to be announced.

After discovering that rural Missouri didn't offer the most lucrative job market for a recently-graduated English major, I did the only reasonable thing I could think of: I started writing about video games on the internet. After years of freelancing, including a stint running Anime News Network's weekly gaming column, I became a News Writer at PCGamesN, and spent nearly a half-decade covering major industry stories, community goofs, and updates on major games. Now I'm doing the same at GamesRadar+, at least partly because I got tired of pretending not to care about the latest Nintendo Direct.

Jordan Gerblick

After defiantly earning an English degree against my parents' protests, I climbed the corporate ladder for a while in dreadful copywriting roles while silently deliberating how to admit I'd messed up. But eventually, exhausted from 60-hour workweeks writing financial documentation and freelancing over the weekends, GamesRadar rescued me from my cameo role in the real-life Office by giving me the dream job I have now. I used to run a pizza blog, I co-designed a once-active Ultima Online shard when I was 12, and I spend every work night in the company of a turtle named Myrtle (he's actually a Russian tortoise but the rhyme doesn't really work with that) and a mini jaguar named Milo. At GamesRadar, I tell you what's happening in video games, and occasionally, what I think about video games. My favorite part of the job is uncovering and shining a light on underappreciated indie projects.

After thinking I'd dip my toe into the waters of writing about games for a living, it turned out I actually quite enjoyed it. After working on USGamer's guides team and later news team, I've now landed in a similar news role at Gamesradar+. I'm lucky enough to be a recipient of the MCV 30 Under 30 award for 2021, and I've worked with countless other outlets including PC Gamer, Edge, and PLAY Magazine along the way. At GamesRadar, I write up the latest and breaking news for the audience of Gamesradar+, constantly trying to sift through the deluge of everyday news to bring you something you might not even know about. Keeping an audience well informed is a challenge, but it’s finding bits of brilliance throughout the industry that’s a genuine pleasure for me.

While I was still trying to cut my teeth in the journalism world, I worked at Game before ditching retail to do an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University. I then landed a job as the content editor for Stuff Magazine writing about all things game and tech related. Eventually I fell into the world of freelancing, and after contributing to Gamesradar+ for a few months, I somehow bagged myself my dream job. Now I get to do what I truly love alongside a talented team of writers full time. Yeah, I can’t believe it either! On GamesRadar, I'm part of the Features team, looking for interesting goings on in the gaming community, and help out with all sorts of bits and bobs for the site.

Raised in Hong Kong and having graduated with an English Literature degree from Queen Mary, University of London, Jasmine's passion for entertainment writing has taken her from blogging about horror movies and browser games to joining GamesRadar+ as a Staff Writer. She made the career jump from TV broadcast operations to video games journalism during the pandemic, cutting her teeth as a freelance writer for global publications such as TheGamer, Gamezo, and TechRadar Gaming before joining Future's in-house team. Whether she's researching the latest buzzworthy legal battles for a news piece or writing comprehensive Sims 4 guides, you will probably find her listening to metalcore at the same time.

I’ve been writing about sports and games – and therefore sports games – for 20 years since a post-Uni stint at Nickelodeon, and can lay claim to being the longest serving editor in Official PlayStation Magazine history. I departed OPM Towers in 2014 to become a full-time dad, but am proud to be able to juggle nappy changes and Disney Plus binges with my role as GR+’s roving, raving man-o’ -sports. I also write football and wrestling words for FourFourTwo, The Guardian, and Talksport. Anything and everything related to football (UK and US), hockey, baseball and wrestling. I've also been known to dabble in writing about movies, and am always free to ramble on about the brilliance of Black Panther.

After mixed career path of scientist, teacher and musician I ended up landing a job on Official PlayStation 2 Magazine. After working my way up the ranks there and eventually running the website, I helped launch and run Kotaku UK before joining GamesRadar+ to do news and tea. Now, I coordinate all the guides content on GR (there's a clue in the name). I work with writers to decide what to tip and what not to tip based on what I think people are going to want to know, and some numbers stuff. I then organize all the guides, video capture, scripts and so on for a game and, God willing, get it up for release.

I joined Future in 2012 to write tips and guides for CVG, before moving on to join the GR+ team. I’m known to many as ‘Mr Trophy’ due to my slightly unhealthy obsession with collecting intangible PlayStation silverware, and I now have around 200 Platinum pots weighing down the shelves in my virtual award cabinet. I do not care for Xbox Achievements. I help look after the guides on GamesRadar+, so spend most of my time either searching gaming’s darkened corners for those final elusive collectibles, or coming up with tips and advice to help you git gud.

I've been in this industry for several years, but writing and games have been a passion of mine since I had the manual dexterity for either. After I finished my Masters degree at Sussex University I worked my way through various sites and publications, including USgamer, Gfinity, Eurogamer, VG247 and Dicebreaker before eventually showing up at GamesRadar's doorstep like a mangy (if hopeful) street cat. If you want to splatter a big monster or get the best hat, I'm the one who's been balancing berets and testing the Legendary Hammer of GoonSquash for you. I tend to cover more story games and single-player stuff, being an antisocial writer-type, but you'll also occasionally see me panicking in online battlefields for the good of GamesRadar.

After realizing I hated writing local news when I started my journalism degree back in 2017, I decided to make it my mission to combine my gaming interests with work and become a games journalist. After years of sometimes tenuously relating my uni projects to video games, and with my final year cut a little short by a small virus you may have heard of, I managed to graduate from Kingston University London. I’ve been doing freelance guides writing since the start of 2021, starting at Game Rant, but now I'm over here at GamesRadar+, spouting incomprehensible Destiny 2 jargon to my colleagues and to you if you read some of my guides. I’m a Freelance Guides Writer on GamesRadar+ which means I try and break things down in video games with words and nice images with big, orange rings in them so that you can hopefully learn a thing or two about whatever’s got you stuck. I’m most often covering big service games, including Destiny 2 (duh), Fortnite, Warzone, Sea of Thieves, and more, but I’ve been lucky enough to cover some sweet solo games like Psychonauts 2 and Sable.

Considering I was scared of the cinema as a kid you may be wondering, why are you Entertainment Editor at GamesRadar?! Well, The Dark Knight changed everything for me and since watching that movie you simply can't get me away from a screen. Like all good journalists should, I started writing about film and TV on my own blog as a teenager - one day my dad told me that I should pursue that as a job and I did! Since then I've worked for the BBC, Zavvi, UNILAD, Yahoo, Digital Spy and more, now finding my home here. When I'm not writing about film and TV I'll be found cuddling my cat on the sofa, likely bingeing New Girl for the millionth time (Nick Miller is the love of my life). And of course, I haven't forgotten about where my journey started so you can also find me waxing lyrical about Christopher Nolan on my podcast dedicated to him.

Hello! I’m the Senior Entertainment Writer at GamesRadar. Pretty sure that’s code for ‘I’m getting old.’ Away from the existentialist dread beat, you can find me covering the good and the great from the worlds of film & TV. Whether it’s the latest Marvel theories, Oscar predictions, or what you should be watching next on Netflix, I’m here to keep on the pulse of all things pop culture.

I have previously written for OPM (now PLAY magazine), FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution, and even managed to find space to squeeze a year into studying literature over in the US. I’m still an honorary Hoosier to this day. Outside of GR, you’ll find me talking people’s ears off about anime, football, and preaching the gospel of Cobra Kai’s Terry Silver to the masses. If you’re feeling brave, you can even follow me on Twitter for a rotating selection of decades-old Simpsons quotes and room-temperature takes.

I began specializing in entertainment journalism when I landed a role as an SEO TV writer at Express Online before going on to work as a Senior Showbiz Reporter at the same publication.

Now I do similar fun stuff for GamesRadar+ – only this time, it’s alongside a fab team and I don't have to bounce my ideas off of my cat. (Thank goodness, his feedback leaves a lot to be desired). My film and TV interests really run the gamut, and I'm just as likely to chew your ear off about Downton Abbey as I am the latest horror movie. Don’t worry, though, I’ll try not to.

Heyy! I am an Entertainment Writer here at GamesRadar+, covering TV and film. I have always dreamed of becoming a writer of sorts, and after graduating from university with a Bachelor's Degree in Media Production and Journalism I decided to explore a career as a freelance journalist and social media content creator until I was accepted into a Master's program to study Fashion Journalism at The London College of Fashion at The Univerity of The Arts. As much as I love fashion, I soon realized that the world just isn't for me so I teetered over to the other love of my life, film. My obsession with film started at a very young age when my mother introduced me to her favorite movie Kill Bill then later let me watch The Blair Witch Project, little did she know that I would soon make horror my whole personality. In the past I have written for local UK and US newspaper outlets such as the Portland Tribune and York Mix and in 2022 I created my very own single-issue feminist horror magazine, before landing my dream job here at GamesRadar+.

After graduating with a BA in English and Sociology, I followed the great Irish tradition of emigrating immediately. Nine months into a retail position at CeX, while lost in the deeply meditative process of cleaning gamer gunk™ off an Xbox 360 controller, it occurred to me that there had to be a better way to make a living from my love of nerdy guff. And so began my freelance writing journey. And so it continued until I finally landed the fabulous role of Tabletop & Merch Writer here at GamesRadar+. As someone who is as artsy-craftsy as they are tabletop-gamey, I love tending to the fine details of miniature painting just as much as I love roleplaying crushing my foes in combat.

I’ve written about comics, film, TV and music for more than 15 years now. Consequently, I sometimes feel old and withered like Guy Pearce in Prometheus. I launched the late, lamented scary movie magazine Horrorville and the second run of Comic Heroes for Future. I’ve written about film and TV for every issue of SFX for over a decade, where I can usually be found covering stuff that’s either arty and weird or made on a budget of about £10. As Comics Editor of GamesRadar/Newsarama I’m covering comics of every genre, from superheroes to the aforementioned arty/weird stuff. My favourite writer is Grant Morrison and my favourite artist is Frank Quitely, so I’m sure you can all guess what my best ever superhero book is.

My entry into comic books came as early as I can remember, with my parents giving me comics and action figures as soon as I could hold them. I learned to read from the mini-comics that came with Masters of the Universe and DC Super Powers action figures, and haven't stopped reading them in over 30 years. I've been a part of Newsarama since 2009, when I began writing reviews, and joined the team full time in 2015 as Newsarama's resident comic book historian and Marvel Comics expert, a role I've carried over since becoming part of GamesRadar. When I'm not writing about comics, I'm drawing and writing them for myself, simply out of love for the medium. Outside of comics, I play guitar in a sci-fi themed metal band, and I love tabletop RPGs and really weird cult classic horror movies. I am also an advocate for queer and trans people in the comics and metal communities. (They/Them)

I've worked at super corporate places like The Financial Times and also more relaxed places like Unilad (where I managed to trick over a million people into watching paint dry for an hour in an April Fool's livestream). I will never get over the fact that I am one of the few people in the world lucky enough to be doing their dream job and being paid to talk about video games all day. I'm in charge of all the video stuff on the site and our YouTube channel. This mostly involves taking all the hard work the rest of the team do (articles, best lists, guides etc) and stealing them to turn into a video.

Serena Cherry, Social Media Editor at GamesRadar+
Serena Cherry

Aged 7, I aced the hang-glider level on Sonic 2 (Sega MasterSystem) on just my second try. That’s when my father turned to me in awe and encouraged me to pursue a career in video games. Just kidding. He said ‘turn that stupid thing off so I can watch Top Gear.’ Nevertheless, I was galvanised. Gaming became my world.

Being an aimless teenager making decisions on a whim, I completed an irrelevant degree in Sociology. I learned many theories that I don’t use in day-to-day life, but more importantly - I learned how to write. And I liked it.

I also liked heavy metal, so I wrote about that for Metal Hammer and Kerrang. I also liked alternative comedy, so I wrote about that for Bristol 24/7. I also liked rollercoasters, so I wrote about them for CoasterForce and started managing their social media channels.

But the thing I loved most was gaming. When I was offered to write a games column for Kerrang Magazine I leaped at the chance like Dante in Devil May Cry. Then in 2022, the big moment came and I joined Gamesradar+. As their Social Media Editor, I have a fantastic time interacting with the Gamesradar audience and resisting the urge to turn their socials into FromSoft stan accounts.

Maddy Kendall-Murray

At age 6 I was gifted an Atari 10-in-1 TV Games Plug & Play Joystick from my Dad, and needless to say the 1980 game Adventure changed my life. Every piece of pocket money went towards consoles, games and an incredibly stylish pink PS2 Lisa Simpson controller that I still think about to this day.

As a young teen I also found a love of acting that quickly spiralled into me being an extra on films like St Trinians 1 & 2 and The Dark Knight (thanks Christopher Nolan, I purchased a Gears Of War Xbox 360 with that paycheck!). From there on it only seemed natural to pursue voice acting and to-camera presenting work, right? Oh no…wait, is that an Animation degree!? 

Out of university, I became a video editor, but I was dead set on trying to make my passion for games a huge part of my life one day - be it creating content, or trying to pursue voice acting. After being stuck in a marketing role and then a YouTube video editor for several channels, GamesRadar+ came along and swept me off my feet and gave me my dream job as a Social Video Editor! 

Now combining my love of gaming, voice acting, and video editing, I am the entire package baby Maddy dreamed of being (except I’m not married to Farkas from Skyrim…). You’ll find me and my voice on the GamesRadar+ social platforms!
