About Pam K Ferdinand

Pam's Colecovision was her babysitter, from the age of 4 or 5, but the family only had one game. Over and over, hour after hour, she'd climb and jump through the three levels of Donkey Kong. But the real love affair began with the NES and Dragon Warrior, when she first experienced the depth and immersion possible in video game worlds. She's been hooked ever since and will be playing in the retirement home. In her spare time, Pam also dabbles in foreign languages, watercolor painting, and reads a lot of fantasy, sci-fi, and horror.

Favorite Games

A long-time fan of survival horror, RPGs of all kinds, and shooters, Pam's favorite series include Silent Hill, Fallout, Deus Ex, God of War (original), Far Cry, and the Souls games. Favorite individual titles include The Last GuardianPrey 2017, Cyberpunk 2077, and The Division.

Industry Focus

Pam started out doing QA in game development, then moved on to game localization and project management. Illness took her out of the game (so to speak), and she began writing freelance news, guides, and walkthroughs a very, very long time ago for a few different sites. She's now been at Game Rant for four years.
