The Daily Show gets Left Behind

Take one part The Daily Show, stir in one part violent religous video game Left Behind: Eternal Forces, and roll it all up with a nice portion of This Week in God's Rob Corddry. The results: a delicous, snarky treat comparing "murder-simulator" Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas with, uh, saving-simulator (?) Left Behind.

"Damn! He just saved that guy right between the eyes!"

Motivated by either an unhealthy Messianic complex or a dearth of career opportunities (he never could decide which), Chris put his college education to good use as a carpenter before becoming editor-in-chief of Joystiq and editorial director of Joystiq's own Massively and WoW Insider.

In those roles, he's served as an IGF judge, an E3 judge, a VGA judge, and a podcast host; interviewed many of the industry's familiar faces, from Bill Gates to John Carmack; spoken at plenty of places from MIT to GDC; and appeared in or on CNN, The New York Times, BBC, all while reporting on the video game industry for the world's top gaming news and information site.

He hangs his hat in the cultural epicenter of the video game industry. Philadelphia.
