destructoid Staff & Contributing Editors




True to our humble beginnings, Destructoid is not made up of (only) journalists; we view ourselves as critics. Our site is a curated, unique mix of editorial voices -- hired primarily from our community. This means you'll see different angles on all topics, which makes for some amusing debate.
