CaLea Johnson,Contributor

My gaming passion stems from my childhood when I had loads of time to play games on PC, PlayStation, and Game Boy. Since then, I’ve channeled my love for gaming into writing compelling pieces for websites! I like writing about games because there's always something new to learn in the industry. I dedicate most of my time to playing action-adventure and simulation games. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a special place in my heart, but I also appreciate the tranquility of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
