Hello! My name is Marcus Stewart. I’m a video game writer and content creator. This is my gaming life story in Spark Notes form.
Video games have been my biggest passion since receiving an NES with Super Mario Bros. when I was round four years old. I eventually went from playing a ton of games to having the hobby consume my entire life in one form or another. I created my own games as a Game Art and Design student at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. I sold them as an employee at GameStop. I even voiced a character in a shipped video game, Elo Hell, in 2019.
Despite all of that, discussing games, whether in print or in audio/video, will always be my favorite way to express my love for this medium. I kicked off my writing career in 2011 writing game reviews as a member of a wrestling forum. Shortly thereafter, I launched my my first blog. After plugging away at that for a couple of years, I took on an Associate Editor position at the now-defunct UK gaming site, Gamer Attitude. During the fall of 2015, I worked as an intern at Game Informer Magazine. Since then I have freelanced for sites including The Gamer, Extra Life, Paste, and Screen Rant.
This blog features game reviews, opinion pieces, and whatever dumb ideas I feel like translating into words. Since the site doubles as a kind of portfolio, expect to also see published works from other sites. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer and appreciate any feedback and support. You can follow me on Twitter @MarcusStewart7, YouTube at Marcus Makes Media, and Twitch at MarcusStreamsGames. For professional inquiries, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading.
