MY NAME'S JONATHAN CULLEN. YOU CAN CALL ME JOHNNY.
This is a place where I write sometimes and also have other things of mine to show. A majority of what’s blogged here is about games, but there might be some off-beat stuff from time to time, like music and films. Or other things.
I’m a freelance video games journalist (Eurogamer/VG247/Official PlayStation Magazine UK/Kotaku/GameDaily.biz among others) from Derry, Northern Ireland.
In addition, I hosted the award-nominated podcast My Favourite Game, where folks from the games industry talk of their favourite game and the experiences they’ve had playing games growing up that have impacted their career in the games industry.
I also authored Level Up, a book about video games released in November 2017 that is aimed at those new to the medium, both old and young alike.
I’m a massive obsessive on all things Naughty Dog, Hideo Kojima, Radiohead, Jonsi & Alex, Imogen Heap, Lost in Translation, The Social Network, La La Land, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Arrested Development, 24 and wrestling (Bayley and Johnny Gargano mark).
PS: The name ‘StokkseyriBoy’ comes from two things. One, the name of an village in Iceland. And two, the main context for me, the name of my favourite song ever by Jonsi (of Sigur Rós fame) and Alex Sommers.
