WHAT IS THIS?
Welcome to my Patreon, I'm Gaming Jay, Canadian and avid retro gamer. I'm currently documenting my quest to try every game in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die, before I die, in an ongoing Let's Play series. From arcade hits to Commodore 64 classics, from DOS-era gems to NES treasures, from Sega Genesis to Playstation, Xbox to Atari, Gameboy to ZX Spectrum, my series explores the classic retro games that we all grew up with, have fond memories of, or heard of but never got a chance to try.

WHY SUPPORT ME?
This Patreon page is meant to be a simple and straightforward way for inclined fans to support my series. I'm not looking to make a living off my videos but if you do like watching them on a regular basis then throwing a few dollars my way each month would be a tremendous way to say thank you, and encourage me to keep doing what I'm doing. 

THE LOST EPISODES
As a Patron you'll have access to a few special bonus videos from time to time, currently know as "The Lost Episodes". There are episodes I filmed for my channel that I can't release for a handful of reasons (e.g., I played the wrong game by mistake, the game or the recording screwed up mid-way through, or I didn't like the way the video turned out and decided to redo it). 

LIVE STREAMS
One of my longer term goals is to eventually start doing some kind of semi-regular (maybe a monthly) live stream. To help me pick games to play for these events I'll be turning to my Patrons. If you'd like me to hear your opinion about what I should play when I do live stream, be sure to sign up as a Patron. Once we hit 20 Patrons I'll finally commit to making this happen!

THE REAL REASON FOR THIS PATREON
Though my Patreon setup here is rather simple, it has one other important role besides your support: to provide an official space beyond YouTube where you can find and connect with me. The unfortunate reality about gaming channels on YouTube these days is they are vulnerable to takedowns and I have personally seen this fate befall some small channels that I enjoy. If a game company suddenly decides to issue a bunch of strikes, YouTube can be forced to take almost anyone's channel down, with little recourse to get it back.

If my channel were to ever be taken down, Patreon here would be the first place you could come to find me, to learn what happened, and to find out where the series has moved. Of course you can always connect with me for free on Twitter if you prefer, and that's totally fine if that's what you'd rather do. In the end whether you decide you want to support me or not, if you are a fan, all I ask is that you enjoy the videos and keep in touch! ... just in case.
Tiers
8-Bit Player
$1 or more per month
You are an official supporter of the series. From the Patreon page you will have special access to The Lost Episodes and will have a vote on any live streams I setup through Patreon.
Super 16-Bit Player
$5 or more per month
You are super fan of the series. You'll also gain access to the Lost Episodes and I might give you a little more influence when it comes to picking games for the live streams (the live streaming stuff is all still TBD).
Player 64
$20 or more per month
I really can't offer you any more perks at this point in time, except for my sincere gratitude and thanks for deciding to support my channel so much. This level is really just reserved for those boss fans who want some bragging rights. Also, there are only 2 spots available. So maybe scarcity will drive a few of you to want to give this level a try ;)
Goals
7 of 20 patrons
If we can hit 20 patrons then I will find the time to schedule a few special live streams where I'll let the patrons offer suggestions and vote on which games I'll play!
