Editorial - Editor-in-Chief
Steve started Gamers Nexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"
First world problems, Steve. First world problems.

Michael "Mikagmann2" Mann, or 'Mik' for short, has been GN's boots-on-the-ground forum support specialist. After learning to build his own PC from GN's Editor, Steve, Mik quickly acquired the necessary skills to assist other forum users in their own PC build projects. Mik has since graduated into an editorial role, where his PC builds and weekly sales round-ups stand as some of GN's best buying advice columns.

Editorial - Sr. Games Editor
Martin Baker has been GN's longest-standing editor -- in fact, he supported GN by writing all of its initial content while Steve was still busy with web development. He recalls his gaming history: "I've been writing about video games for about 12 years now and have been playing them for even longer, starting off with a Spectrum ZX passed down to me in about 1988. Yes, I used to play games that came on cassettes. Yes, they were AWESOME!"
Indeed, Martin. May the cassettes rest in peace.
