Jordan Minor's Reviews

Former PCMag intern Jordan Minor is a junior software analyst who really just wants to use his fancy Northwestern University journalism degree to write about video games. He's previously written for Kotaku, The A.V. Club, Cards Against Humanity, and 148Apps. In his spare time, he also writes dumb screenplays that occasionally become dumb movies.
