My name is Janet Garcia and I’m a freelance video game journalist from Chicago, IL. This site serves as a hub world and portfolio of my work. I’ve been creating video game related content for over 3 years including news, reviews, feature articles, podcasts, let’s plays, unboxings, and vlogs. I also hold a B.A. in English Literature with honors in creative writing.
Bylines at Kotaku and Hard Drive. Previously a staff writer at Bit Cultures and produced over 80 podcasts/videos for Bit By Bit, a project that ran for 1.5 years with Jess Reed. My branding across social media is Gameonysus.
The name “Gameonysus” (pronounced game-on-uh-sus) is inspired by the name Dionysus (the god of wine). For me, Gameonysus means “god of gaming,” which reflects my overall goal. This isn’t to say I want to be the greatest gamer in the universe; rather, I want my gaming experiences and the content I create to be a universe: expansive, beautiful, curiosity-driven, and inspiring. I strive to play a wide variety of games and offer opinions/insights that will benefit and enrich the lives of others.
