Probably the brightest and best looking contributor to WellPlayed, John spends his time buying and ultimately not finishing any game. When he’s not doing that he’s going back into the website settings to add words to his profile because the other admins wrote more and he feels inadequate. John enjoys any and all games unless it requires patience and skill. PSN: THAT77GUY7. Get around him on Instagram @John P Gray

When he isn’t killing pests in the real world, he’s probably killing them online. Taylor’s hobbies include yelling at the tv when things don’t go his way, and even when they do go his way. He loves anything multiplayer online, good rpg’s and playing with mates.

Has partaken in the realm of gaming for some time now. Usually the quiet guy in the corner breathing heavily into the microphone drowning out the sound of everyone’s gameplay, however can be relied upon to dominate anyone with a witty comment or meme at their slightest slip up. He considers himself a player of many games and a master of none, and will play anything at least once.
Writer (The Nintendo & PC Guy)
Aza is the site’s resident Nintenyearold, but is also proud to be part of the PC mustard race. When he isn’t floating on flamboyant air into the lollipop sky, he’s chowing down on cheesy foods and watching his semi-extensive VHS collection.
Writer (The Dark Souls Guy)
Jordan lives and breathes Dark Souls, even though his favourite game is Bloodborne. He takes pride in bashing his face on walls and praising the sun. Hailing from the land of tacos, he is the token minority for WellPlayed. His PSN ID is chillenotsomagic.
Mr Multiplatform just wants everyone to get along. Occasionally he gets called a Sony fanboy but then he spams haters with photos of his Halo, Gears of War, Super Mario and Zelda statues. When he is not gaming he is in legal courts thinking about video games or recording music thinking about games
Writer and Video Contributor
Known throughout the interwebs simply as M0D3Rn, Ash is bad at video games. An old guard gamer who suffers from being generally opinionated, it comes as no surprise that he is both brutally loyal and yet, fiercely whimsical about all things electronic. On occasion will make a youtube video that actually gets views. Follow him on YouTube @Bad at Video Games
Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (i.e., the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the centre of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
If they had waterproof controllers in the 80s, Edward would probably have been gaming in the womb. He’ll play anything with a pixel and would rather make console love, not console wars. PSN / XBL: CptLovebone
Larissa grew up with her Nintendo 64 and PS1 quickly growing her love for platformers, puzzles and adventure games. She wants to be Lara Croft, marry Nathan Drake and fit in as much gaming time as possible between selling video games, playing soccer, reading and screaming at the tv at her woeful footy team. Get around her on Instagram @larissahh_
Dylan is an avid gamer on all systems and believes that console wars are dumb. He owns over 60 amiibo however, which is a bit of an issue. You can find him on PSN @PlushyPants49 and Twitter @GrumpyGoron
Tegan began gaming with her father when they would play Street Fighter together on her Nan’s PlayStation. Since then she has fallen in love with indie games, AAA games (I’m looking at you Tekken) and everything in between. Starting off as a console player, and more specifically an Xbox player, Tegan has now recently begun her new gaming ventures on PC. You can find her playing dating sims on Steam @carrotphernelia if you so wish.
