Earning our karma
I came across Destructoid back in 2006. At the time, it was barely a blip on the industry's radar. It was just a pack of dedicated bloggers with a rebellious streak. Now, this site has seen at least a dozen of its own graduate and pursue other roles in the gaming industry. It's grown to a site with millions of monthly views.
Somehow, this little robot army crawled its way to the top. We didn't do it alone though, and there's a new crop of really incredible writers and bloggers working their way up. It's time for us to pay it forward. So here's a list of some folks to whom we'd like to give a shout out to with pithy, Twitter-style descriptions.
