About me

I’m Chris Schilling, a freelance games critic based in Stockport, UK. I’ve been writing about games for the better part of a decade – these days, I contribute to the likes of Edge, Eurogamer, Official Xbox Magazine, Official PlayStation Magazinem, IGN, VICE, GamesTM and Red Bull. In the past I’ve written for Official Nintendo Magazine, NGamer, The Observer, The Daily Telegraph and The Guardian among others.

I’m always on the lookout for more work, so if you’re an editor of a gaming publication or website – or, indeed, a mainstream outlet that covers games – and you’re seeking a conscientious, enthusiastic, experienced writer, please drop me a line at favoritet[at]gmail[dot]com.



  1. Dear Webmaster,

    Would you be interested in exchanging links between our sites?I have good quality sites from where you would like to have link from. And as you might aware getting links from good quality site would definitely help your site to get higher placement or ranking in search engines like Google, Yahoo etc.

    If you are interested, please reply to this email and I will be happy to discuss our link exchange requirements.
    Wishing you a great day and hope to hear from you soon.

    Best Regards,

  2. Hey there, my fine fellow.
    During my spare time I’ve been writing for a relatively new web magazine, (one that’s hosted by regular people with day jobs, families etc but all with a passion for gaming), and have decided that I would like to expand on this venture in a freelance capacity but am unsure as to where I should head next? The site I’m current writing for goes by the name 7outof10 and has been gaining quite a momentum of recent; particularly with publisher & developers who have been more than happy to talk to about any current projects they’re working on. As you might imagine this sudden interest in our site from those within the industry has been a major boost and as such is the reason I wish to take my own writing further in this field.

    I’m currently in the process of putting together a portfolio but, as I say and as stupid as this may sound, am unsure as to who to direct it at and where to go from here. Any help and advice you can share, Chris, would be much appreciated.

    Many Thanks,

    Joseph-aka Magius of GRcade.
