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.
In the end, then, 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
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.
In 2018, Sarah was nominated for "Best Journalist" at the Women in Games Awards.
One half of the site's editing team, Ian's been playing games since before he could even read - or technically, at exactly the same time as he learnt to read, as his parents promised him an Amiga 500 once he'd mastered it. They probably weren't expecting him to nail it in a few days. A fan of pretty much every genre out there, and an avid collector of gaming devices and paraphernalia, there's nothing that Ian likes more than a mug that says Halo on it, a Damnation t-shirt, an Animal Crossing toilet brush - if it's games related, then it must be cool.
Before founding Everybody Plays, you might remember Ian from such publications as Eurogamer, IGN, Videogamer, Pocket Gamer, Total PC Gaming magazine, Gamerzines, and many others.
