Hi, I am Simon Smith, I am an avid video game fan and love to talk about and discuss games, which is what brought me here. I have been writing about games since 2012, mostly I enjoy spending my time writing about the Nintendo Switch but I also enjoy the 3DS as well as the Playstation 4. These days I cover most things from news, to reviews (I always have something in the works) to random pointless opinion pieces.

I have been gaming for as long as I can remember. I have been writing about video games for a few years now, and love it. I am usually playing some kind of JRPG, though I enjoy any game with a great story. My platform of choice is the PS4, though I have come to love the Switch.

I'm a 23 year old UNC Chapel Hill grad who knows more about Pokemon than I do myself. I've been interested in video games from a young age, and they have influenced me my entire life, leading me to study Japanese in college, with a dream of someday being able to translate the games I love so much! I've been a lifelong writer dabbling in both fiction and essay writing and I hope to use it to share my love of video games with the world. In my free time I draw, watch anime, watch other people play video games, or play video games myself, with my favorites including any Pokemon game, Fire Emblem, Persona, Tales of, Okami, Xenoblade Chronicles, Bravely Default, and Final Fantasy 15.
