Welcome to Common Sense Gamer, THE destination for complete PC and console game guides and tutorials.

This is an independent gaming website where common sense writing and gaming analysis trumps the crazed fanboy-filled world of gaming blogs and video game journalism.

Follow Common Sense Gamer below!

Common Sense Gamer was launched back in 2017, initially as a hobby project and one-man show, delivering news and guides related to the gaming world, but with a focus on PC games.

Over the years, it has evolved into the complete gaming blog it is today, focusing on delivering timely guides for the newest games on all platforms, walkthroughs to get you out of sticky situations and basically everything you need for an amazing, stress-free gaming experience.

The Common Sense Gamer team is composed of veteran, hardcore gamers with thousands of hours of gaming under their belt, millions of enemies defeated and billions of bullets used.

We can keep going with various in-game related stuff, but you get the point: we’re gamers at heart, we spend hours each day playing games, and we love to share our passion with the world.

Common Sense Gamer is a blog written by gamers for gamers. And we promise not to drive you mad with useless propaganda, biased articles or clickbait titles.

Instead, we’re coming with a no-nonsense approach to video game journalism, always getting straight to the point and delivering content you want and love to read: guides that are useful and complete! That’s a promise!

The Common Sense Gamer Team

Calin Ciabai

Calin Main Profile Photo

Common Sense Gamer’s founder and current Editor in Chief. Having a bachelor’s degree in journalism since 2007, Calin’s entire career revolves around writing about video games, but also a bit of travel and health.

His work was featured on notable gaming websites and blogs, including Softpedia’s gaming division, Games.com (now AOL) and various other video gaming blogs.

He launched CommonSenseGamer in 2017 with the goal of making it your go-to destination for game guides and tutorials and, overall, the best gaming blog in the world.

He’s been a gamer since his youth, when he started playing on a cassette-powered Home Computer ’84 and wasn’t able to stop since.

He loves playing RPGs and turn based strategies the most, although there’s no genre he will say no to. Unless it’s anything horror, because he’s a bitt of a wuss.

Even today, you’ll find him playing a good ol’ Heroes of Might and Magic 3 map or achieving world domination in Civilization 3, before jumping into a Fallout game or, why not, reliving great moments in Gothic I and II.

With thousands of hours played on MMORPG, survival, and FPS games, Harry is happy to share what he’s learned with others to make their gaming experience better – and he’s been doing it since 2020, when he started writing for various online publications.
