Hey, folks! I'm Daniel Westrop, your friendly Editor-in-Chief at WhatIfGaming. Started my gaming saga in '03 with Unreal Tournament and never hit pause. I'm all about that PC life, though I cheat with my Xbox (only for Forza, I promise!). From being a Global Elite in CS2 to a Fortnite veteran, I've got tales. Minecraft architect? Check. MW2 strategist? Absolutely. My real-life "squad" is a league of extraordinary writers worldwide, making gaming lore legend.

Hey, awesome game enthusiasts! I'm Anwell, diving into the gaming world from the days of the Game Boy Advance SP with Pokémon FireRed, evolving into a pro strategist in the intense showdowns of Valorant and CS2. It's a thrill ride I never want to get off! But hey, I'm not all about the competitive scene. Sometimes I'm kickin' back with the latest indie farming sims, where my farm designs—though not award-winners—bring a quirky kind of peace. As for the tech side, yeah, I've put together a PC or two, and it's a blast. But let’s park that for now; we're all about the gaming vibes here! All this joystick joy turned me into a wordsmith in the gaming universe, with a sea of articles to my credit. And the journey, with you all by my side, just keeps leveling up. So, stay tuned, stay connected, and let’s keep this game-night rolling! Ready for more action and less talk? Onward to our next virtual adventure!

If you feel our articles are true and tested like a new bulletproof Tesla.. ok, bad example. But they are! And it’s because we live what we write. We wander from practice to theory to writing. It’s not just a matter of recycling others’ articles and looking for adjectives synonyms. We have our own tone, voice, and opinion. We hold accountability for what we write and publish. 

 

From hardware reviews to game reviews (our favorite part, games CD keys!), our reviewers study, experiment, play. And then, after grasping its core features and mechanics, they articulate their viewpoint and perspective on said review.

 

Our news editors are swift and accurate. We don’t just copy and paste press releases, but we try to make a parallel between them and other news in the gaming world. Our leaks are examined, cross-referenced, and often proven true. Unfortunately, we can’t tell you how we find them, otherwise, we would have to ki… ahem, moving on. 

 

We write up-to-date guides to games that are trending so you don’t get stuck in a game or in case you want some tips to get a headstart on your friends. Our guides are often considered synonymous with cheats because they will make your life so much easier in the game that it can’t be something honest or real. But believe us, it is.

 

So there it is. Each of us may have a different preference, perspective, and writing, but we all have something in common. Our passion for games and the drive to deliver something distinct to the community.
