    This is the bit where we tell you how brilliant VG247 is.

    VG247 is no spring chicken, having burst onto the internet through a cloud of smoke back in February, 2008. While it started out as a news blog, publishing the latest news around the clock, today it also offers high quality reviews, features, videos, and guides by some of the best people in the business.

    VG247 is designed to be a kick-ass, no BS destination for discussion of the biggest topics in video games. We'll kick-start the conversation with news, articles and videos from the VG247 team, being brutally honest so you get to know the staff and our points of view. Then the discussion continues - over to you.

    When it comes down to it, we're just a lovely bunch of people who care a lot about video games and the brilliant people who make them. If you want a basic primer as to who we all are individually, you can check us all below - and we've got a full list of VG247 contributors for you to peruse that includes all our lovely freelancers.

    It's worth noting that while we want to engage with you, we do have some rules, so do take a look at our Code of Conduct so you don't fall foul of a moderator. Essentially, be nice to people, yeah?

    We've also got info on how we review games and what our review scores mean (just in case you can't work out what a number from 1 to 5 means), and you can read a little on our Editorial Policy, how we work and who owns us - perfect ammunition to throw at us in the comments when we give an event simulator a 5/5 review.

    All questions, comments or enquiries should be directed to VG247 at contact@vg247.com.

    The entire VG247 team works remotely - so if you want to send something to the team, you should reach out via email. For more general postal correspondance, our head office address is:

    Kelsey Raynor

    Guides Writer

    Kelsey's passion for gaming began with Resident Evil, and it's been rather difficult to get them to shut up about horror games since. When they're not scoping out new scares or commiserating the cancellation of Silent Hills, they can often be found fawning over cute Pokémon and Kirby, or being very average at FPS games.
