I like to play

Hello! My name is Joe and I’d like to welcome you to my website.

Not long ago I began a quest to start replaying games from my childhood, as well as play those titles I had never conquered. What started as a series of Facebook posts and cold nights locked indoors keeping myself entertained evolved into a full-fledged bucket list with a plethora of reviews.

I hope you enjoy my site. Take a look around and be sure to check back often as I tackle more titles.
