About Us

Hi! Welcome to Gaming Symmetry. Here, we attempt to give video games the type of critical credit and attention we believe they deserve. We consider video games to be more than just entertainment; like film and literature, they can be art as well.

At present, we're staffed by a team of nine authors, writing pieces on the art, psychology, culture, and future of gaming. If you like what you see, follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook.
