Andrew Groen (Freelance)
Another one of the games industry's busiest freelance press people, Andrew Groen is the kind of writer you follow to feel smarter. His love of science means he drops a lot of real-world knowledge between thoughts on what the press can do to improve.
He has, um, a lot of ideas about what the press can do to improve, and they're all quite good. Groen has his head on straight. He'll champion great work as quickly as he'll point out something that's gone awry, in games or elsewhere, and he's a good metric if you're want to avoid doing sloppy work.
