Lifewire Product Review Editorial Guidelines & Mission

A Message from Thomas Hindmarch

"I fell backwards into video game writing back in 2002, when it was still in its Wild West period. It's not that much less crazy today, but what's kept me here is the chance to be on the forefront of covering a rapidly evolving medium as it's moved from a niche product to a cultural force to an international juggernaut.

"Also, I like shooting zombies.

"'s mostly the zombie shooting, now that I think about it."
