I like bikes and video games because they both spark my imagination and provide seemingly infinite possibilities and just generally make me smile.

Two things that have had a presence in my life from an early age are bikes and games. I have fond memories of both, and they intertwine. Sonic and Tails reminds me of my stabilizers being taken off.

Rift managed to distract me from bike rides and Yoga training long enough to submerge me in its engaging hammy world of dramatic deaths and beautiful landscapes... read now

Costume Quest's feisty pack of kids created a story I didn't want to end. Trundling around on my robot wheels was the most enjoyable challenge I've had, off the saddle, for a long time... read now

Winterbottom's off-kilter rhyming world of pies ensures that even its most complex levels are fun. It reached for laughs rather than intellect to keep me playing, something I preferred to overly worthy games like Braid... read now

Braid is an unusually difficult platform game. Being able to undo your mistakes by rewinding time sounds like it should help, but when you hit the difficulty wall Braid doesn't do enough to get you on your way again... read now

I just got a new bike. No, not in videogame land, in the real world where all the plants and trees live. A shiny 2011 Ridgeback Element, to be exact. I've spent a good few months looking around, and this is the bike that finally fits all my requirements... read now

I've had close calls on the road a few times over the year but luckily no actual accidents, so I don't need to be persuaded to wear something bright and hi-vis. In the warmer weather I'm sporting my pink Karrimor cycling top which raises the occasional snigger, but I can live with that if it means cars can see me and stay out of my way... read now

Trials HD XBLA hooked my bike riding glands as I kept coming back to throw my little biker guy into one more crash test hell... read now

Gaming and biking put me in a similar mental state - adrenaline filled, distracted and buzzing. My brain seems to go into overdrive and come up with all sorts of ideas. My last gaming session resulted in me signing up for a charity bike ride... read now

Because I'm used to customising my stuff in videogames, I've always had a penchant for tinkering with my bike in the real world too. Accessorising, adjusting and innovating make my possessions feel like my own - whether in the real world or in videogames... read now

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.

What sort of gamer are you?

Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
