A British Nintendo baby, the first console Adam ‘the 16bitbrit’ owned was a NES that his parents’ purchased for him one Christmas. He surrendered hours to Super Mario Bros 3 and marble madness…yes, marble madness 🙂
His “Nintendoholicalism” continued into what Adam describes as the golden age of gaming – the 16bit generation and the Super Nintendo. He loved playing all the Donkey Kong Country games, the plethora of timeless 16bit RPG’s, along with other classics such as Super Mario World, Street Fighter 2 and Mario Kart.
As a keen video editor and fan of YouTube gaming channels such as gamester81, the Happy Console Gamer and Pete’s game room, Adam decided to start his own YouTube gaming and tech channel – 16bitbrit, giving him an outlet to share his gaming and tech passions with the YouTube community.
Some of Adam’s other hobbies include looking after his newborn son, picking up as many game deals as possible and running. He is also a big football (soccer) fan.
