John is an Associate Editor at Den of Geek US and oversees the Games section. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, Details, and others. You can find more of John's writing at johnsaavedrajr.com. Or watch him play games on his Twitch channel.
 
As he writes this bio, John is trying to beat Metal Gear Solid 3 for the first time and is loving every second of it. Okay, so you're wondering why it's taken him so long to get to MGS3...You're like, "Dude, that game's been out for years!"...John will have you know (a bit shamefully) that he never owned a PS2 as a kid. In fact, his first Sony console was a PS3 his parents bought him so that he wouldn't go out on prom weekend (and it worked). So he's stuck playing the fancy HD version.
 
John's favorite games of all-time: Metal Gear Solid 4, Resident Evil 5, Halo 2, Dead Space, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed 2, Killing Floor, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Pokemon Gold, and Journey.
