About


Since it was founded in the Summer of 2009, This Is My Joystick (TIMJ) has strived to offer its readers a regular dose of quality, opinion-centred content.

While other independents try the impossible and attempt to compete with the big boys in an overcrowded, news-driven market, the staff at TIMJ have free license to add a much more personal stamp on their work.

Be it editorial, review, feature or news piece, not one person on our staff will ever talk on behalf of others or the site as a whole, and why the hell would they? Much like in any walk of life, opinions differ on all manner of subjects, everybody’s different, and we don’t just welcome that; we embrace it.

To that effect our aim, as it always has been, is to continually provide the means for intelligent and reasoned debate.
