About Chris Carter

Chris Carter is a gaming writer that holds a Philosophy Degree and a Political Science Criminology Degree. What does that have to do with the written word? A lot, actually!

He’s been writing from a very young age, particularly short stories involving his favorite fictional characters from various mediums. Chris has been an avid gamer since he was four years old, and has owned almost every system imaginable from the NES up to the current generation. Due to the uncanny amount of games he’s played over the years, he is well versed in just about every genre in the industry, from fighting games, to old school JRPGs, to modern shooters.

In his 20s, he became the Editor-In-Chief at Gamer Limit.com, editing well over 1,000 articles, and publishing over 600 himself: many of which were reviews featured on Metacritic and Gamerankings.com. To date over all sites, he has reviewed roughly 1000 games listed on both aforementioned aggregates.

Chris has a multitude of contacts in the industry and has covered E3 multiple times on location as well as many other industry events, in addition to setting up meetings and portfolios for eight other colleagues on-site. In 2012, he started contributing to Destructoid.com, providing news, features, and reviews, as well as contributing editorials to a variety of different outlets. In 2013 he became the Reviews Director at Destructoid, and in 2015, he was promoted to co-EIC. He is also available for freelance work.

What he brings to the industry is an honest perspective, with no genre or platform left behind.
