Weekend Game Guy
Chris “Weekend Game Guy” Long has been a part of what some might call “nerd culture” for as long as he can remember, and he got his first video game console when he was three (a hand-me-down Atari 2600). Video Games have always been an important component to his life, but an evening birthday party at a shady arcade would send gaming to a whole new level for him. After watching some older kids performing fatalities on a Mortal Kombat arcade cab, Chris knew that video games were a much bigger deal to him than he initially thought.
Now in his thirties and a father of three, time to play video games has become a precious commodity. It was clear to him that there were many gamers in the exact same position as he was. He decided to share as many games as possible that the “busy gamer” could pick up and play in a relatively short amount of time. He shares the games he discovers through a few different series including: Arcade Overview, Weekend Game Guy After Dark, and of course the Weekend Game Guy.
In addition to collecting video games; Chris also has an extensive comic book and anime collection. You can check out more at his YouTube channel WeekendGameGuy1.
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.
