MyGameStory was founded in 2018 by James Fenn and Ed Acteson, two former colleagues living the width of a continent apart but still bound by a below average friendship and an above average love for video games.

The pair felt that most review sites were virtually identical in their analyses of games and wanted to do something entirely different. They believed that video games are more than just a series of technical specifications and can offer each player an entirely different experience and set of memories, so they created MyGameStory. The aim was to create a place where everybody would feel welcome to share their video gaming stories and experiences.

By encouraging reviews from people of all ages and every walk of life, MyGameStory is a community designed to share in the joy, sorrow and the power that only games can provide.
