ALI HASHMI

Howdy folks, Ali Hashmi here! You’ve probably seen my name pop up under a review for that obscure indie game you really wanted to read about or how you can get rid of the dreaded chromatic aberration from the hottest new PC release. I’m the Reviews Editor at WhatIfGaming and run a tight ship with a crew of passionate writers who are complete nerds experts of a wide variety of video games from indies to AAA.

I play a lot of games every year, and I love writing about games that take risks, are centered around some unique mechanics, or have a voice of their own waiting to be heard. If your game has what it takes to stand out in a sea of mediocrity, you can count on me to write and gush about it.

I’m a PC gamer primarily, and do my best to assist people with modern PC releases, giving helpful tips to improve the user experience to get those FPS numbers up while maintaining visual quality or fix that nasty crash preventing you from playing your favorite Unreal Engine title (the stuttering will be the literal end of me).

I love Bloodborne, and I’ll never shut up about it. This is important for the bio, trust me.
