Javy Gwaltney

Associate Editor

Javy has been fascinated by games ever since his father brought home a PC with Warcraft and Hover! installed and plopped it down in front of him. A demo for Half-life spurred his interest in the medium to full-blown obsession, leading him across galaxies and beneath seas, letting him explore a myriad of interactive universes. Before joining Game Informer in 2015, he was a teacher and freelance writer who contributed to Playboy, Paste, Killscreen, Vice, and other publications. When he's not busy clacking away at a keyboard, he's making games or watching foreign films.
