One of the original game journalists, Andy McNamara started his career in 1991 writing
reviews of NHL Hockey and Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Genesis in the magazine’s
premiere issue. Named editor-in-chief in 1994, McNamara turned the quarterly newsletter
into the number one monthly video game publication in the world, with over 7 Million
subscribers and counting.
From the humble days of running the ASCII version of Star
Trek on a workplace server to years of joyously exploring Atari 2600, ColecoVision,
and Intellivision games during the golden age of video games, Andy immersed himself
in pixilated adventures right up to the industry crash of 1983. Between ‘83 and
‘85 video games fell off the face of the Earth, but Andy rekindled his love of interactive
entertainment when the Nintendo Entertainment System launched the modern era of
video games with classics like The Legend of Zelda and Metroid. Andy still attributes
Metroid as the reason he is involved with video games today. One of the longest
standing editors and journalists in the industry, sharing his passion for games
with gamers around the world is the reason Andy gets out of bed in the morning.
Sure, it¹s around noon, but those are gamer hours.
