About Janet Garcia

My name is Janet Garcia and I’ve been a video game journalist and content creator since 2015. Over my career, I've written news, features, reviews, listicles, walkthroughs, and interviews; I've done livestreams and hosting. And I've created podcasts, unboxings, let’s plays, and vlogs. Previously IGN editorial, I also have bylines at outlets such as  Kotaku, PlayStation LifestyleNerd MuchHard Drive, and more.

Now I'm looking to go after my own goals in this industry directly: to keep up with all the latest and greatest games, fill my gaming gaps, spotlight the best indies I can find, and to build a community that loves games as much as I do. 

Gameonysus is my personal brand (and handle across social media). The name “Gameonysus” (pronunced game-on-uh-sus) is inspired by the name Dionysus (the god of wine). For me, Gameonysus means “god of gaming,” which reflects my overall goal. This isn’t to say I want to be the greatest gamer in the universe; rather, I want my gaming experiences and the content I create to be a universe: expansive, beautiful, curiosity-driven, and inspiring. I strive to play a wide variety of games and offer opinions/insights that will benefit and enrich the lives of others.

Here are the projects my Patreon is currently supporting: 
  • Twitch
    • Black Lives Matter Fundraising (Tuesday; 3pm PT - 7pm PT): My weekly charity stream is raising money for Black Lives Matter related orgs by playing indie games from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality.  
    • Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) (Wednesday; 1pm PT - 5pm PT): I'm building my Animal Crossing island (without time travel) and working to do it all (build the island of my dreams, complete critterpedia, get all seasonal DIYs, own every K.K Slider Songs, full catalog, etc).
    • Best of 2021 Watch (Friday 3pm PT - 7pm PT): Streaming the biggest releases and the latest games on my radar to determine the best games of any given year: starting now with 2021. 
    • ACNH (Saturday; 10am - 12 pm): see above.
  • YouTube: Opinion videos, news reactions, reviews, spotlighting favorites, practical (gaming related) tips, and more. 
  • Articles: I run a content creation and advice blog called Game Industry Guides
  • A podcast: Gameonysus weekly - A weekly news show recapping the biggest stories and adding my own two cents.
  • Building Community: I'm active on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok. And you can engage with me and our community more directly by joining the Discord

If you want to keep seeing my work in the games industry, help me get to the next level, and be part of shaping what that next level looks like, support me on Patreon. Supporting me here means supporting more diverse, in-depth, and creative content. It means building a kind and thoughtful community. It means discovering games you may have otherwise missed. And it means bringing all this directly to you in a way that's as authentic as it is inviting.

I'm looking to do more of what I love while adding value to my audience's life through practical info and entertaining content. Your support here will allow me to continue this pursuit, create even more content for all of you, and elevate the production quality of existing content. 

Whether or not you choose to become a patron, thank you so much for your time, your views, your shares, and most of all your interaction. The connections games can foster is what keeps me coming back to the field every day. 

Here are just a few of the places your money will go:
  • Improved streaming gear.
  • New/additional music and art assets.
  • Help with video production.
  • Assistance with podcast editing.
