About Matthew Magnus Lundeen

Matthew Magnus Lundeen is a writer, critic, and aspiring cinephile trying way too hard and simultaneously not enough. He writes anime features for Game Rant when he isn't trying to write his novel series.

Favorite Anime

My favorite anime is Bungo Stray Dogs. Come for the superpowers and beautiful characters. Stay for an emotional story with subtext about battling trauma.

Favorite Console

Living with a roommate that has an Xbox has spoiled me, so I don't really pick a side in the console war, but I'll always be a PlayStation boy at heart.

Favorite Games

There are several, but the easy choice is and always will be Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
