Former Video Game Press/Media

This is a list of people who are no longer in the video game press/media and have been credited in a game, likely finding a job in the game-making side of the industry. This list is intended to be comprehensive, so notify me if you know of any more. I do not follow the games press as closely as I did when I started this.

To add if/when they are credited and added to GB: Alice Liang, Tina Palacios/Sanchez, Hilary Goldstein, Chris Watters
