About Tom Steel

Tom Steel is a senior writer for CBR, having covered all manner of topics across anime, TV, film and gaming. A university graduate with a degree in German Studies, Tom almost took the path of journalism instead, and is now excited to be pursuing it in a different capacity. At least he can definitely remember all the German he learned.

Industry Focus

Tom has been at CBR since 2021, and has amassed a library of lists and features spanning all manner of different media and topics. He has been able to test his editing chops with the updates initiative, and is now a senior writer specializing in gaming.

Favorite Media

Tom has always loved film and television, having experienced the very best and worst of British TV from a young age, before branching out to an appreciation for global entertainment. Ted Lasso, The Boys, Castlevania and Game of Thrones will always be up there as his favorite shows, while The Departed, Inception and Wreck-It Ralph reign supreme as his favorite movies. Yet his love for writing has reached its best and most passionate when it comes to talking about gaming. Pokémon and Marvel Snap may be his current passions, but he will always have an immense fondness for how games like Stardew Valley, Kingdom Hearts and Crash Bandicoot shaped his early tastes in life.
