Two of the founding members of PC gaming site Rock Paper Shotgun are leaving soon, so they are having a look back at how the site came to be what it is (2 out of 6 parts are up as of now). RPS is the only video game site I check regularly because they seem to give their writers a good deal of leeway to write about what they want, how they want, and so the writers’ personality and passion comes through.
I actually learned about SU&SD through RPS. This Quinns guy who does the COGWATCH series also reviews board games? And there’s also Paul’s Stardew Valley article which, according to Paul on Twitter, he still gets comments on.
Friend of SU&SD Pip was, I believe, a former editor for RPS, and that’s where I got to know her work, like Pip making her and Alice in Sims 4 or them talking about Cookie Clicker. Both are very Pip, and I was brokenhearted when she left. Pip collected some of her best work here for her last Pipwick Papers column.
Leigh, Matt, and Bratterz have also contributed to RPS, and Brendan is a features editor. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I like the output of SU&SD and RPS and that they have so many people in common.
