Andrew Reiner has been driving public opinion about games for more than 25 years now and I was incredibly excited for the chance to bring him onto KakeBytes to learn more about him.
Andrew, inspired by Todd McFarland and Stan Lee, sought to take advantage of his love for drawing by becoming a comic book artist, but after an epiphany while in college, he realized that writing could be a better path to success.
After a job opportunity with Paul Anderson in his time with FuncoLand, Reiner was quickly on the path to being a full-time Game Informer employee.
On today’s episode of KakeBytes, he talks about his early love of games and how he vaulted that admiration into a career in gaming journalism. For more than two decades, Game Informer has maintained a dominant position as one of the most reliable sources of game news and reviews and he breaks down the ways in which the magazine has adapted to the advent of the internet, the rise of digital media, and the various acquisitions they have undergone.
Andrew recounts the first article he published on the Death and Return of Superman and the ways that the experience has stayed with him through the years.
Thanks! Appreciate the kind thought. https://t.co/0XZWYh7f6B
