About Us

This is the bit where we tell you how brilliant VG247 is.

VG247 is no spring chicken, having burst onto the internet through a cloud of weed smoke back in February, 2008. While it started out as a news blog, publishing the latest news around the clock, today it also offers high quality reviews, features, videos, and guides by some of the best people in the business.

VG247 is designed to be a kick-ass, no BS destination for discussion of the biggest topics in video games. We'll kick-start the conversation with news, articles and videos from the VG247 team, being brutally honest so you get to know the staff and our points of view. Then the discussion continues - over to you.

When it comes down to it, we're just a lovely bunch of people who care a lot about video games and the brilliant people who make them. If you want a basic primer as to who we all are individually, you can check us all below - and we've got a full list of VG247 contributors for you to peruse that includes all our lovely freelancers.

It's worth noting that while we want to engage with you, we do have some rules, so do take a look at our Code of Conduct so you don't fall foul of a moderator. Essentially, be nice to people, yeah?

We've also got info on how we review games and what our review scores mean (just in case you can't work out what a number from 1 to 5 means), and you can read a little on our Editorial Policy, how we work and who owns us - perfect ammunition to throw at us in the comments when we give an event simulator a 5/5 review.
