Veteran Member - Level 13
Now a veteran member and a regular visitor to Game Informer for nearly a year now, I've come to love the site and it's news, but what's more I've come to love its people even more. In particular, it's stories, game replays, and special features would be nothing without its fan community and especially its wild, wacky editorial staff.

7/10 + Bonus! I love Replay and Super Replay. I started watching soon after it started, when I saw they did Superman 64 and I had heard about how bad it was so I wanted to see for myself. It was really bad. And I have been addicted ever since. :)
8/10 correct. Awesome quiz!
i got 6/10. Not too good, but not too bad either. I have to say, I don't really pay much attention to the editors key details. Just their blogs and news. Although I should. I mean I get their magazines every month !
I got 9/10, not including the bonus question! I spend too much time on this site!!
I never knew that Ben Reeves was a twin.
Cool blog though.
