Everybody Plays isn't a site "by the hardcore, for the hardcore". It's a website for people like you. Games for the rest of us.

Bringing news, previews, and reviews of games to an audience that don't care about polygon counts, Everybody Plays concentrates on the reason we all play games in the first place - the fun.

Helping you choose what is and isn't worth your hard earned cash, our team of experts strive to bring you the latest news and opinions about games that matter to you. Where other sites may focus on only one or two "big" games every year, we give equal footing to the titles other sites don't, from puzzle games to rhythm action games, from point and clicks to platformers, and everything in between. Even games aimed at young children.

To this extent, we also aim to be the internet's first stop for parents looking for games that are suitable for their children. Our Parental Reviews, found in a tab on most reviews, let you see at a glance whether a game's suitable for your child. While PEGI ratings only deal with content, we give each game two seperate ratings - an age rating for its difficulty, and a traffic light rating for its content. Helping parents see at a glance how old a child would have to be to cope with a game, we highlight any questionable content, and provide a summary of what the game's all about, and what your child will actually be doing, giving parents everything they need to make a decision about what's right for their child and family.

Wherever it's possible, we'll also test out the children's games on children themselves - helping get the most accurate opinion of a game possible.

But of course, we aren't just a site for parents looking for games for children. Our site's called Everybody Plays for a reason. Grandparents and parents, teenagers and adults, the young and the young at heart - people of all ages are getting into games, and we're here to help you find games you'll love. We strive to ensure our articles require no prior knowledge of a genre, development team, or series - instead, taking each and every game as a separate entity, explaining what it does well (and not so well) and why.

Meet the Team

Ian Morris

The editor and "founder" of the site, Ian's an experienced games journalist, having been playing since the early 90s with his Amiga 500. A fan of pretty much every genre out there, and an avid collector of gaming devices and paraphanalia, there's nothing that Ian likes more than a mug that says Halo on it, a Damnation t-shirt, an Animal Crossing clock, or a Sims pen. If it's games related, then it must be cool.

Favourite genres: From Role Playing Games to Strategies, from Puzzles to Flight Sims, and from First Person Shooters to Sports - Ian's played, and likes at least one game from pretty much every genre in existence. Bar Football Management.


Sarah Hadley

Although you probably couldn't tell if you looked at her scores online, Sarah's actually been playing games since she was "diddy", having been reared on the solid combination of Tomb Raider and Rainbow Islands. A fan of anything cute and cuddly, and more than a little bit apprehensive when games use more than a few buttons (or both analogue sticks), Sarah likes her games with simple controls, and bright, colourful characters.

Favourite Genres: Puzzle, Rhythm Action, Point and Click, Platform, Role Playing Games, and anything involving cute animals or bright colours.
