Taylor is an avid gamer, sushi lover, and overall nerd. After founding two gaming-related sites of her own, she went on to intern with G4, and can now be found across the interwebs writing about videogames and all their glory.
In the words of a very wise and obviously incredibly hungry individual, "Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts." My name is Taylor Stein, and I am honored to be a new member of the craziest, most outspoken, and wonderfully witty internet family that there is, Destructoid.
As a new contributor, I hope to approach all my content with an air of humor, personality, and a healthy dose of rant-worthy opinion. If you're wondering which side of the fudge debate I reside on, well you'll just have to find out.
To introduce myself a bit, I've been a self-proclaimed avid gamer since an NES graced my household when I was about 5 years old. I can recall playing original Legend of Zelda as a peewee: running in circles, cutting grass, and collecting rupees with absolutely no direction. Regardless of the initial confusion, I was clearly bit with the addictive and alarmingly expensive gaming bug. Since then I've added just about every major console to my collection, and I have no plan on stopping anytime soon.
What started as a hobby clearly evolved into a passion as I grew older. Playing videogames led to writing about games, which after a hearty serving of luck (and a little bit of talent) brought me to the ultimate home for gaming enthusiasts, Destructoid. I stared as a blogger on 1UP, founded a few gaming sites of my own, and interned with G4 where I decided that there is no where that I'd rather be than within the gaming industry. Love what you do and you won't work a day in your life right?
Besides all the nitty gritty stuff, I'm a sushi extremist, pet lover, cartoon aficionado, and fitness fanatic who would love to get to know the great people of Destructoid. Thank you for having me, I look forward to exploring the wonderful world of videogames with you in the future!
