Hi, I’m Scott Nichols, freelance game journalist/critic/writer-type person extraordinaire.

I have been laser focused on the videogame industry since I was a little kid. I played and read about games constantly, even getting a job at GameStop in high school to be involved in the industry. In college I studied writing and received my BA in English while also starting my first freelance gigs writing for PC World Magazine’s website and GayGamer.net. I still write for GayGamer.net, and over the past three years have expanded to also write freelance news, reviews, and feature articles for GamePro, G4, IGN, Digital Spy, and others across the internet.

As the name of this blog implies, I plan to collect my gamerly musings here. This is where failed feature pitches go to shine rather than die, and where I can post thoughts not quite developed enough to pitch but are still worth sharing. I’ll also do a fair amount of linkage to my various freelance articles and reviews in hopes of creating some sort of unified portfolio.


If you would like to get in contact with me, there are plenty of ways to do so.
