About 5WG

Welcome to 5WG!

Named for the “Five Ws” of journalism and gaming, and launched in September of 2006, 5WG was envisioned as an alternative to mainstream videogame sites, many of which have reduced constructive criticism of this burgeoning art form and large-scale entertainment industry to an overly-simplistic marketing tool.

At 5WG, co-founders Shawn Drotar and Mark Fossen believe that modern gaming is a sophisticated and vibrant experience for both game designers and game players, and as such, deserves thoughtful examination without bias.

We hope you enjoy what you find here, and we encourage you to participate, as well.

Thank you for visiting and sharing our enthusiasm for this unique and ever-evolving medium.
