Write for us!

TheGamer is a personality-driven site for gaming news, reviews, and features. We are funny, snarky, and informative. Our work strives to cover all corners of the industry, from niche fandoms the gaming community is known for, to breaking news that is shared far and wide. We take all comers, and value all opinions (except the terrible ones - you know which ones those are).

TheGamer has been the first to report on some major gaming-related events. Remember that time a theatre full of children accidentally watched a horror movie when they went to see Detective Pikachu? That was us. We wrote that.

Our writers and editors are a close-knit team, who take pride in what they do. We work together to create the best news, features, lists, reviews, and guides around.

TheGamer strives to create a welcoming and diverse workplace, where people of all backgrounds have a voice. We actively support and employ BIPOC and LGBTQ+ writers and editors.

We look forward to meeting you!

Here is what people are saying about TheGamer

  • @TheUriGeller

    I am truly sorry for what I did 20 years ago. Kids and grownups I am releasing the ban. It’s now all up to #Nintendo to bring my #kadabra #pokemon card back. It will probably be one of the rarest cards now! Much energy and love to all!
