About Gamester81

John “Gamester81” Lester started playing video games at a very young age. His first ever console that he played was a Colecovision, quickly followed by an Atari 2600, and his passion for video games hasn’t stopped. In 2008 John decided to start a video game review show on YouTube called Gamester81 by reviewing rare and retro video game systems and games. His show quickly grew in popularity, and he became friends with many other gamers in the YouTube community.

He is also one of the hosts of the All Gen Gamers Podcast which is a bimonthly podcast for people and video games of all generations.

Some of John’s other hobbies includes collecting Star Wars memorabilia (YouTube channel Starwarsnut77), playing classic arcade games (YouTube channel Gamester81Arcade), watching sports, and listening to music. John is a big fan of the 80’s and 90’s and in 2009 started a YouTube channel called NEStalgiaholic where he talks about nostalgic items and memories from his childhood.

    How did this even make it to market back then? Sure, in concept it’s a decent idea, but it’s just very poorly done. Great review, John!

  • It’s good to know what the true meaning of LJN stands for lol. The nerd calls it Laughing Joke and Numbnuts.

      I always refereed to LJNs video game line as Fruitcake Video City until they they started putting good games on the SNES.

      Laughing Joking Numbnuts is the Nerd’s accurate name for LJN because they’re a bunch of Laughing Joking Numbnuts (capitalized on purpose) who never stop ruining everything to do with video games!

    Lord Jesus No! An “art system” that is outclassed by Mario Paint.
