  • Shaun Joy

    I've been an avid gamer since the young age of 6, and have taken a journey to start writing and producing video content to share my love of video games with the world. I have a degree in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and had worked in the transit industry working on Ticket Vending Machines, and fareboxes in mass transit. When it became clear that the kind of work that I wanted to do was eluding me despite always being considered an "up and coming star", I left my job and decided to start creating video content. I started a youtube channel,, to start sharing my thoughts on new games, as well as producing content in a variety of ways. I believe that every game has something that we can take out of it, even games that are negative experiences overall, and I want to highlight getting the most value out of games. I want to highlight deals to bring games that deserve the spotlight to light, and help gamers save as much money as possible, mostly to spend that money on more games =P. I love discussing video games, and will always be open to talking about them (granted, if I am working on something at the time, it may be a timely response.)

    You ever wonder why we're here? It's one of life's greatest mysteries, isn't it? Good thing games exist so that we don't have to think about it. Or at least I don't have to think about it. Instead, I'll just play Halo or something.
