Eric “8-Bit Eric” Perez started playing video games at the age of
four when his older brother bought a Sega Master System. From there he
was instantly hooked on playing anything he can get his hands on.
Shortly after, his life was forever changed  when he received his own
NES for Christmas and the rest is history.

In 2010 Eric decided to start a video game review show on YouTube
called The 8-Bit Eric Show, since he decided to start collecting video
games again, and he became friends with many other gamers in the
YouTube community.

Eric’s favorite system to collect for is the NES, sitting at around
430 games, his dream is to own a complete collection. He also enjoys
playing Odyssey 2 and Atari 2600 games.

Some of Eric’s other hobbies are collecting toys, and watching 80’s
movies.  He is also an independent pro wrestler for over 12 years.
