Critical Coins is a gaming source focused on providing a critical look at the gaming industry with content including analysis, features, and opinions, while also discussing, debating, and, above all, enjoying games and gaming culture.

What does that actually mean?
Critical Coins was born out of a shared idea of creating video game content that isn’t just product reviews and the latest news on the web and media-—there are plenty of sites that already do this. Instead, we provide a critical analysis of game industry, trends, and happenings with a mix of humor and seriousness.  One of our goals is to provide material that leads to meaningful discussions and debate, but we are not above having a good laugh at the latest DLC controversy with an absurd comic strip about Totino's and Assassins Creed. At the heart of Critical Coins is a desire to provide insights to and spark conversations about particular aspects, people, and events in the gaming industry—conversations that we feel are worth having about games and gaming culture that we enjoy.

Who is part of Critical Coins?

Mitch (Creator) — I am a long time gamer, podcaster, and marketer—I have always enjoyed discussing and analyzing games and the gaming industry. I have been playing games since I was little; hell, I got my first PC when I was four years old. My love for gaming began with classics such as Doom and Lemmings, both of which I still have on floppy to this day.

Back when I was around 7 years old, I would play Resident Evil, along with my Mom and Dad, setting up downstairs with the old pull-out couch and some popcorn. My dad and I would shoot zombies, while my mom would help solve puzzles. Ever since those early days of my childhood, I have been into games, and have been an avid, lifelong fan of series such as Resident Evil, Oddworld, Mega Man, Warcraft, Monster Hunter, and Half-Life.

Livnat (Contributor/Graphic Artist) — Gamer, artist, writer, and lover of ancient legends and myths; I am a girl from Israel that finds almost everything interesting and worth exploring, especially if it has something to do with the games I love (like Breath of Fire, Diablo, and The Witcher). I really enjoy motifs of angels and demons in gaming lore and designs, but also have a fondness for exploring the origins of names, heroes, and monsters in folklore. I also happen to find art in general to be very fascinating, and routinely try my hand at creating my own, including comics and graphic designs for Critical Coins.

Articles
We are first and foremost an editorial website, providing insights and perspectives on games and the industry that (we hope) may provide the catalysts to productive discussion on events, people, and issues in gaming. Here are some noteworthy articles we have written in the past that we invite you to go read!


These are just a few of the many articles you can find by visiting CriticalCoins.com!

Comics - "Take Out"
These arose as a joint idea to provide lighter, more comical fare to the more serious events and issues that we write about. The content of our "Take Out" comic strips range from happenings in the gaming industry, to parodies of news and related media, and even things from our own daily lives.  These strips are meant to represent a quick, colorful response as focused and swift as a dagger. But since it’s also funny, maybe it’s made of rubber, who knows.

What is planned for the future?

For the immediate future, we invite you to take a look at our goal tiers, but we generally want to create, grow, and provide more for you to enjoy! This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Creating a podcast that is focused on diving deeper into topics and issues directly related and connected to our written content, with the potential for subscriber input on topics and issues
  • Creating videos on game design concepts, the game industry, and some fun topics such as our favorite games and collecting! 
  • Streaming some of our most beloved games and live discussions on current or recent events. 
  • There's even a possibility, with enough interest from our subscribers, that we may create forums for discussion, debate, and general banter

Guiding these goals and others that we may add to this list in the future will be our guiding commitment to providing our personal perspectives, insights, and analysis to games and the game industry in hopes of fostering further discussion and debate about the topics and issues we have and will cover.  As we receive more support from you, our subscribers, we will be honoring your contributions with opportunities to participate in the experiences and products we hope to bring to you in a variety of ways.  We look forward to a future we can create with your help to make Critical Coins even bigger and better than ever!
