Sameer Desai

The fearless leader of the editorial team of IVG is endowed with a deep-rooted passion for gaming and an equal amount of disdain for anything science fiction. If that left you scratching your head, you're not alone; the man is full of anomalies. His analytical skills cut across genres, and he can handle the M82 assault rifle in Killzone 2 as deftly as the steering wheel of a Cappuccino (his favourite car) in Gran Turismo 5. Having abandoned a far more lucrative career in mainstream media, Sameer has made his mark within the nascent gaming industry in India by writing for many publications (both print and digital), and by leading the growing juggernaut that is IVG over the last five years to a spot amidst the top Indian websites that cater to core gamers. While he may come across as a harmless, good-natured and friendly person, a word of caution here: do NOT utter 'Angry Birds' in front of him, or any casual game for that matter. You may end up walking away screaming at the top of your lungs, with a pair of sai lodged firmly in your nether-region.
