The Escapist's Game Writer Round Table

The Escapist's Game Writer Round Table

N'Gai Craol is an editor at Newsweek and writes for the blog LevelUp. Julian Dibbell has been writing about games longer than any of us, and is currently a freelancer working for The New York Times Magazine, among other places. He's also the author of the book Play Money. Kieron Gillen is a career freelance game journalist who writes for The Escapist, Edge and other magazines in the U.K. and the U.S. And N. Evan Van Zelfden is also a career freelancer, and has also published in The Escapist as well as The Economist, Kotaku and others.

All four were kind enough to take an hour out of their day to share their thoughts with me on game journalism as a whole, the art of crafting an interesting story about games and how they made into one of the sweetest gigs on the planet.

Anyone with any brian in their head

This man needs help. ;-)

Brians in the head are fine. It's the goddamn Jims who complicate things.

So does this (and the hint of a reunion post-E3) signal a new type of roundtable podcast show for the Escapist?

We're always trying new things. We don't have any immediate plans to do another round table like this, but it's entirely possible we will.
