About SGR

serious game researchSGR is a group of tight knit friends that decided to come up with a gaming site FOR gamers BY gamers.  It is disgusting to see all of these corporate blogs out there that started gaming blogs just for profit.  Don’t get us wrong, there is nothing wrong with making money, but our belief is that you must provide value to your audience, then and only then should you worry about the money.

Nick: Nick is a full time gamer.  He is 30 years old and lives in Santa Monica.  When he’s not managing a local restaurant he is playing COD until 5 in the morning.  He is one of the founder of this website and the one who designed it.  If you have any questions you can email him nick@seriousgamesresearch.org.

Paul: Paul is the one who is responsible for making all of these posts.  Paul is a student and has a part-time job, which he normally ditches both to stay at home and game.  He is a super talented individual that will one day be a top-level game designer.

AndreaAndrea does all of our graphics, the logo etc.  She works for one of the top engineering firms in LA and is a big retro gamer.  When she is not posting on our blog or doing graphics, you can find her modding old school NES roms for fun and profit (ooops, not profit).

Derrick Legend Derrick is the youngest member of our team, but one of the most important. Derrick manages all of our social media accounts and defends us on the forums when we can’t be there.  Derrick is on his way to become a video game programmer at the University of Miami, and has been an avid programmer since the age of 12.  In his spare time he likes to skate, game, draw, and write.

We have a ton of contributors to the site, as well as a few staff bloggers.  Really we will take articles from anyone, as long as they are super relevant.  No, we won’t link to your site – we don’t do SEO on our site.  We believe that Google will give us love if we make an awesome brand, which we think we’ve done a pretty great job at.

We also wanted to give a shout out to Patrick from Elite Strategies for hosting our blog and being very cool.
