Who's going to play all of these games?
John started playing video games in the 1980s and since then they've been a constant in his life. Now, as a full time student and with a looming quarter-life crisis, he doesn't have as much time to game. This project started as an excuse to play through his backlog and an outlet to practice his writing. It has evolved to include podcasting, live-streaming, and academic writing.
John's work can be found at his University's publication, The Capilano Courier. He has also written primers on Dota 2 and The International for SteelSeries.
He has given talks on military representation in games and was interviewed on the subject for Bullet Points.
The first thing John ever wrote was a short story about a super hero with the combined powers of Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Cyclops. He wrote it on a Commodore 64 and it was as terrible as it sounds.
