Matthew Kato

Senior Editor

Matt Kato has been a GI stalwart since 2000, starting out on the original Game Informer website. Kato's love of video games started with sports games, but he also enjoys everything from Assassin's Creed to Vagrant Story. Like most people back in the day, his interest in games started with the Atari 2600 and NES, but he didn't partake of the next generation of consoles until his brother informed him of an officially licensed football game called Madden for Sega Genesis. Hired in part because Andy McNamara thought a four-year degree in Japanese meant he could speak the language fluently, Kato soon proved to be more talented at putting together the magazine's news section - something he learned from the late GI luminary Paul Anderson.
