John Saavedra

John is an Assistant Editor at Den of Geek US. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, Details and Words in Gear. It was only a matter of time before he decided to start writing about video games. You can find more of John's writing at johnsaavedrajr.com. Or watch him kick butt in MOBAs 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 that new, fancy, HD version.
 
Here's a list of 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 
 
Journey
