Patrick O’Rourke became interested in video games, technology and writing at a very young age while scouring the pages of magazines like Nintendo Power and Electronic Gaming Monthly.
Currently he's employed at the National Post as an online editor. He covers gaming, internet trends, cord cutting and file-sharing as well as general news.
He's interviewed a variety of notable video game developers, reviewed hundreds of games and has covered the PlayStation 4's reveal event, GDC, E3, the Game Awards, the Canadian Video Game Awards and many other local Toronto technology related events.
Patrick contributes frequently to the National Post's Post Arcade as the section's deputy editor and is a journalist with the Financial Post's Tech Desk as well as the National Post's news desk.
He also wrote a weekly video game column called Press Start for Canada.com and founded GameJudgment, a now retired opinion-based gaming website where he acted as the site's Editor-In-Chief for over three years. He lead a small but dedicated staff of similarly minded game enthusiasts and brought the site's reach to 5000+ unique views a week.
In the past he has freelanced technology and gaming related articles for Bitmob (now Gamesbeat), Techvibes and other technology websites.
