Donovan Harrell is a Devil May Cry and Metroidvania enthusiast who loves fast-paced, single-player action games, especially indie games and action RPGs. He also considers himself to be an advanced scrub with several fighting games. He’s a lifelong gamer and can appreciate games of any genre, as long as he’s having fun. He also really wishes there were more diverse game characters and people in the video game industry. Or at least better hair options for Black people. We play games too, you know. With a decade of journalism experience under his belt, he joined The Punished Backlog in 2023 after a mild existential crisis pushed him to try and write fun things more often.
