Alex Van Aken

Video Editor

From real-time strategy games of the late 90s to MMORPG's of the mid-2000s and all the way to current battle royales like Apex Legends, Alex has spent his life trying to find a better multiplayer game than Halo 2.

When not enjoying a weekend brunch date with his wife or spending evenings writing music, Alex loves to play video games (that’s obvious, right?). In particular, he enjoys competitive first-person shooters, strategy and stealth games, MMORPG’s, indies, and a bevy of battle royale titles. Van Aken’s favorite games of all time include World of Warcraft, Halo, Animal Crossing, Celeste, and more recently, Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
