Work and Play: A Peek Inside the Lives of Gaming's Insiders

In the original Work and Play, we posted a collection of photos of game developers and journalists' desks and game setups from around the world. We are thrilled to be revitalizing this project in our new gallery system with several new additions.

On Wednesday, Crecente posted a gallery of developers and industry insiders. Today, we continue that trend by showing you the workspaces and homes of those who bring us our video game news on a daily basis – video game journalists.

With more than ten game sites and blogs participating, you will be able to see the offices and living rooms of journalists at IGN, Destructoid, BoingBoing, and even some of our own Kotaku editors.

We hope you enjoy the gallery!

I've got a cool pad. It's somewhere in between Niero's and Flynn's. Black leather, 2 pieces. When my girlfriend moved in, her cat scratched that all to shit within a few days, though. My fault, I should have bought those couch protector things.

LCD HDTV, 37", 1360 x 768 (anything more is just showing off, imo).
