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 three years including news, reviews, guides, feature articles, podcasts, let’s plays, unboxings, and vlogs. I also hold a B.A. in English Literature with honors in creative writing.
I currently write news articles for PlayStation Lifestyle and features for Nerd Much. Additionally, I have my own YouTube channel and a Patreon for said channel. I stream regularly on Twitch. And, most recently, I’ve launched my own blog, Brown Gamer Girl. Bylines at IGN, Kotaku, and Hard Drive. For specifics please refer to the Writing Portfolio page.
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.
