Two years later, he became an EGM editor fulltime, reviewing truckloads of games and hardware while making a name for himself in the industry. By 2000 he had been offered a promotion to previews editor, and a future in videogame media was his for the taking. Instead, he made a move that would shock any young gamer with dreams of breaking into the industry".
