American video game journalist and developer known for his association with mid-2000s New Games Journalism, his verbose writing style, and his video game reviews website

The Guardian cited his 2005 opinion piece "Dreaming in an empty room: a defense of Metal Gear Solid 2" as a core example of New Games Journalism, a style of video game journalism that emphasizes the author's subjective and personal experiences in relation to the game world.

Rogers has also written for Next Generation, GamesTM, Play, Game Developer, and Kotaku.

In game development, he is a co-founder of Action Button Entertainment, where he designed games including Ziggurat and Videoball.
