Jevon Jenkins, Senior Reviewer

Jevon has always had a deep "love for the game" even since the days of his early childhood when 2D gaming was more than just a fad and the arcade scene was larger than life. He is always ever watching and ever searching for that new, unexpected, and nostalgic element in a game indicating something far beyond a fancy jewel case, promising screenshots, or big time brand. Jevon plays and enjoys every spectrum of gaming across all platforms, because he never wants to miss out on any opportunity or diminish his gaming experiences in any way whatsoever. As a result he has developed a deep respect and appreciation not only for the game, but for the gaming industry as a whole and the work that goes on behind the scenes. And in his own words: "What better way to appreciate the gaming industry than from the view here at GiN?"
