What does that mean? Well for starters, we’re completely open and approachable. Despite the fact that we work with hundreds of developers and publishers alike, we will always put forward our views and content without a shred of undeserved favour towards any serving body. That of course includes Microsoft. If they screw up or drop the ball, you’ll hear it here. We may well be an Xbox branded outlet, but we’re here to say it how it is.
Our team consists of individuals that have a great deal of gaming knowledge and passion for the brand, we use that to drive this site in the directions that it moves. You may not always agree with what we say or what we do, but isn’t that the point? It creates an excellent dialogue for not only us to engage with, but you too. Grab a chair, hang your hat, and stick around.
I was born to win, well, or at least try. I review games and post content here at Xbox Tavern. When that’s not happening, I’m collecting as many achievements as possible or hitting up the latest FPS / RPG. Feel free to add me – Gamertag: urbanfungus. @jerpeto
Born in New Jersey across the Hudson from Manhattan, I’ve been playing games for over 30 years. I can confidently say that I’ve played at least one game on every console ever made. I’m also an accomplished Forza artist. JPep715 on Xbox and jpepek715 on Twitch, feel free to add or give me a follow. @JPep715

Gaming, or, games in general, are in my blood. Just shy of an addiction but still an obsession. From opening my mind on the Commodore 64 I have kept up with the generations of gaming, currently residing on the Xbox One.@Grahamreaper
I have been gaming since I can remember, with some of my earliest memories being of the Sega Mega Drive. Games have always been an escape for me and I will be forever thankful for the opportunity to experience so many wonderful worlds. If you would like to hit me up on Xbox my gamertag is: vampkittie
I’ve been playing video games for almost 25 years, but escaping the Pillar of Autumn began my love affair with shooters. I can usually be found in Destiny, PUBG or FIFA. Follow me here @lloydcoombes
As a kid, I was very socially awkward and quiet. When I was introduced to Xbox, everything changed. I’ve met my best friends on Xbox, and had some of my absolute best gaming memories on Xbox. Gaming is something I could never give up, and I pity the poor soul who asks me to do so. Gaming is life, and I bleed Green! Feel free to add me – Gamertag: FatalShock v7. @FatalshockV
My first ever game I played was Alex the Kidd on Sega Master System II which fits really but been an avid Xbox fan since the beef cake original (Still have no idea how I used the controller) Got myself Into to FPS with Halo and never stopped shooting people since. Virtually of course… Feel free to add me – Gamertag: Aeone. @AeoneGaming
For me it started out on PC, back in the Wolfenstein 3D and Commander Keen days. Now I play across all platforms, but I’m gaming every day, mainly on xbox. I’m easy going, with a full-on achievement hunting addiction, but you mainly can find me getting my fix on Apex Legends (Caustic FTW) Gamertag: nuttywray @nuttywray
As a child I enjoyed Puzzle/Logic, Adventure, Platform, Racing and Simulation games on the PC, and keeping myself sane at numerous family events on my Game Boy Pocket. Now I generally play Action-Adventure and Music/Rhythm console games, but I will forever be captivated by a beautiful game soundtrack.
I was gaming way before it was cool or accepted, when games were sold in ziplock bags and gaming clues required a letter and a SASE to the actual developer. I’m not saying that like it’s a credential or an odd badge of honor, but as a statement that video games can be fun and engaging independent of graphics, the number of player choices allowed, or game mechanics. I felt the same sense of joy and exhilaration with text-based games of yore as I do playing the most advanced games of today. @turnbullr67
Double-jumping, coin-collecting, joystick-twiddling, medic-calling, lag-blaming, jump-scare-screaming, video game devotee. Old enough to remember the Vic 20. Enjoys long walks through Skyrim, long waits to respawn and propping up leaderboards.@neilbason
I’m a longtime Halo and anime fan. Been playing on the Xbox since release back in 2001.I strive to set dreams and achieve them every year, all while gaining new experiences. One of my proudest achievements so far is visiting the home of Halo, 343 Industries Headquarters. @Writing_Spartan
Although the genesis of my videogame addiction began with a PS1 and an N64 in the mid-late 90s as a widdle boy, Xbox has managed to hook me in and consume most of my videogame time thanks to its hardcore multiplayer fanaticism and consistency. I tend to play anything from shooters and action adventures to genres I’m not so good at like sports, RTS and puzzle games.
Born and raised in Northern Michigan, I have been playing Xbox titles since the original launch of Halo. Having owned every Xbox console since, I consider myself very fond of my Xbox lineage, even if I tend to write about Nintendo today. Indies are life. Gamertag: NindieNews @NindieNews
