Andrew Reiner has been a staple in the pages of Game Informer since 1995, but his
obsession with video games is linked to his earliest childhood memory – being picked
up by his mother so that he could view an Asteroids coin-op at a Pizza Hut. From
weekly trips to arcades to owning every system that hit the market since the Atari
2600, Andrew has dedicated his life to video games. He chose a career in game journalism
over game creation mostly because journalists get a chance to play everything coming
out, as opposed to a creator dedicating most days and nights to the same game for
years on end. True to his belief, Andrew plays everything, which is evidenced in
his ridiculously high Xbox 360 Gamerscore and PS3 trophy count. Andrew works side-by-side
with editor-in-chief Andy McNamara each month, giving input on cover decisions and
which games should be covered into the magazine. He also manages the editorial staff,
and believes that all big game release dates should be national holidays.
