- General Manager
Darren Henderson (dizzypw)
Darren Henderson transferred from accounting to editor-in-chief of OnRPG in 2011, eventually rising to general manager of the GEE project overseeing OnRPG and MMOHuts. Although more of a console gamer, his love of writing and sharing breaking gaming features allowed him to grow a passion for the MMORPG industry. His articles tend to focus on the minute details and interviews drill down to the facts gamers care about when choosing game choices, rather than fluff and personal preference. You can usually find him in PvP intensive titles where skill-based combat allows casual players a chance to compete with grinders.

Jordan Hall (apocaruff)
Hello everyone, Jordan aka ApocaRUFF here. I really started gaming when I first picked up Star Wars Galaxies when I was twelve or thirteen, quite sometime ago. My experiences in that game has defined who I have become as a gamer - as such I love good Sandbox features, in-depth housing systems, and lore-rich worlds. I focus mainly on MMORPGs with strong sandbox elements and small, indie-developed obscure titles such as Wurm Online, Shores of Hazeron, Mortal Online, etc... Chances are you haven't heard of at least one of those, but they're all games I've played and enjoyed immensely. And that's what I like to do - play the little-known titles and help other realize their existence.
Remko Molenaar (proxzor)
Ever since I was young I have been hooked to playing games. I still remember the first games I played that were on a floppy disk and my first console which was the NES. The new technology interested me a lot and it was no surprise that it eventually became my biggest hobby and a huge part of my job. As a gamer, I am a fan of most genres and I will play almost anything that catches my interest. I am also a very competitive gamer, and love to try and get to the top of the ladder in each game. I also visit many events to either participate in tournaments or to check out the latest games. I am the typical stereotype gamer geek.

- Console Guru
Jason Parker (ragachak)
It all began in 1986; I begged, groveled and pleaded for a Nintendo Entertainment System. I was fortunate enough to acquire one but that sealed my fate forever. In the fourth grade I was handed “Nintendo Power” and I said even then, “This is what I want to do” and so here I am! My focus leans more towards MOBAs and MMORPGs, though my article list is incredibly varied, including card games, Diablo clones, and World War II simulators. Favorite games include: EarthBound, Final Fantasy IV, Dragon Quest III, and Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire. I have been actively gaming on consoles since 1986, starting with Nintendo, and currently I hold more Sony consoles than anything; though I am also an active PC gamer on Steam, League of Legends, World of Warcraft, and just about anything else I can get my hands on. More than anything I crave a well-crafted story, and as a writer and gamer it is my primary concern. My forte’ appears to be Alpha/Beta tests and sneak previews of games that are getting a relaunch, taking a good look at the changes that are forthcoming; I also have peered at my fair share of expansions to evaluate how far they have come from the original product. My goal is to offer as much of an unbiased opinion that I possibly can, and to word my reviews in such a way that everyone can come away from it with knowledge, whether they are a gamer or not.

Eric Kandel (misanthropologist)
My name is Eric. I've been gaming since the Atari. My first shooter was Wolfenstein 3D, my first MMORPG was Ultima Online. Being my first and still favorite hobby, I'm not ashamed to call myself a gamer. It has been my privilege to watch the world of gaming evolve over the past twenty years, seeing the leaps, both forward and backward, it has taken in the process. The name “Misanthropologist” is a portmanteau of “misanthrope” and “anthropologist,” first coined by Carl Abrahamsson, which essentially means “a person who loathes people but enjoys studying them.” This term has apparently come into some kind of Internet vogue in recent years, with numerous others claiming its invention. They are all wrong. It predates the Internet. And that's what you should know about me as a writer: I don't hesitate to say when I think someone or something is wrong. I do my best to be polite, considerate and objective, but you will encounter criticisms. When you do, I hope that you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.
