About Courtney Ehrenhofler

Courtney Ehrenholfer is an aspiring novelist and screenwriter, and current journalist who greatly enjoys video games, especially those of the point and click and JRPG varieties. Having previously written at Adventure Gamers, she has a deep knowledge of the adventure genre, and strongly contends that Lucas Arts games were better than Sierra.
A fan of pirates, wholesome games and gothic horror, Courtney prefers games that generally don't push reflexes as a necessity for enjoyment. Additionally, she pushes for games to be more accepting of players not interested in romance and for more diversity in gaming as a whole. She's also a huge fan of kick-ass female protagonists like Lara Croft, Aqua and Estelle Bright.
