Hey, my name is Robin. I am 23 years old and I live in The Netherlands.

At this time I’ve been on YouTube for over 5 years already. I was 17 at the time I started. It all began with doing the Uncharted 3 Top 10 Plays and by now it has become so much more, it really is a thing I put many many hours into every day. I’ve made around 1000 videos already, can you believe it?

Now I know I'm not your typical let's play guy or crazy personality in front of the camera and therefore I'll definitely never gain a real substantial number of viewers that will go in the hundreds of thousands. I'm just me, I'm a foreign guy with an accent and an opinion about games that I love sharing with you all, but that said I'm still really happy that there are people like you, the more core gamers that are willing to listen and appreciate everything I share with you. The channel is now over 100,000 subscribers strong, and so many people like you watch my videos which is something that is still mind blowing to me. For that I can't thank you enough.

I want to talk with you about the future. In 2017, I graduated from university and got my Software Engineering diploma.  After that I had two choices. The most logical would've been to use my degree, get a job in programming that is very safe, pays well, but requires a lot of time. That would mean I would barely have to put into videos and you’d slowly start seeing my channel fade more and more into the background. I will be completely honest with you: That is not what I want my future to be. I want to chase my dreams. I started realizing more and more how much I love doing what I do now on YouTube and what the possibilities are. I want to try and see where I can get with what I have been doing now for so long.

Of course you probably all know that YouTubers make a little bit of money that comes from advertisements on videos. The reality is that this system is just not viable anymore whatsoever. Advertisements barely make money nowadays, and on top of that 70% of viewers use ad block (don't worry, I don't blame you because I do too. Ads are just annoying). What it comes down to is that you literally need millions and millions of views every month to make a decent amount of money. And what if YouTube decides to randomly take down your channel for copyright issues that you were never warned about or any other random thing happens that means you don't have control over the situation anymore at all? You can see there a lots of risks involved.

This is why you see more and more creators asking their community for help and that’s where you come in. For those of you who dont know what this is, Patreon is a site where you can support creators like me with a certain donation per month that you get to completely decide for yourself, while having full control so you can also stop it at any given time. In return for that you get certain cool rewards that are displayed on the site. Really though, it is most of all simply meant for support. If you enjoy my videos and you want me to keep improving with better quality audio, video, more games to review, more frequent high quality content and all that type of stuff, this is the way to help me out.

Whether it's 1, 2, 5, 10 or 25 dollars, any donation is much appreciated. Your support will make it possible for me to spent my time working on YouTube videos, instead of working at an office doing something I don't nearly feel as passionate about.

It has been over 5 years now and I'm still having just as much fun. It's great to havea job that still feels like a hobby, to have a small but dedicated following like you all and I'm hoping for many more years to come. If you decide to pledge any amount on this Patreon page, realize you are one of the people that is making this all possible. Thank you for that, it truly means a lot to me.

- Show up in the credits of every special video: Everytime I create a new episode of a special series, like my in-depth gaming series, top 10 videos, or any other special video I make, your name will be displayed in the credits at the end as a way to say thanks for supporting!


  - Access to the monthly Q&A video: At the end of every month I post a huge video where I update you on what I've been playing, plans for the channel, and I also answer Patreon questions extensively! 


- Access to the exclusive Discord server:  I have a Discord server for Patreon supporters and Twitch subscribers only. In there you can talk with me and all my other supporters about games, movies, life, whatever and whenever you want!


- Access to the Patreon feed & Vote for in-depth video ideas: I will regularly keep you updated on everything I'm doing in the Patreon feed and you can always ask me a question in the comments of each post! I will also sometimes post polls to ask you which topic or game I should make an in-depth video about next. The winner will ultimately be the video that gets made first.  


 - A thank you message for supporting me!:  Supporting me at this tier means you want to help make it possible for me to do what I love. I really appreciate that.

 - Early access to special videos, as soon as they're done:  Every week or two, I aim to make a special video, that takes quite some more work to create than the average news or opinion video. These include my new in-depth series, top 10 videos and more. Pledge at this tier, and I will send you a link to these videos as soon as they're done, still hot out of my editing program! I usually try to upload videos like this on Sunday, so depending on the day they're finished, this early access can vary from a few hours in advance, to up to a few days early. One thing is for sure, once it's done, you'll be able to check it out! Don't spoil my videos to others in advance though! ;)

 - Ask Me Anything For The Monthly Q&A Video: At the end of every month I post a huge video where I update you on what I've been playing, plans for the channel, and I also answer any questions submitted by you! The length of these videos entirely depends on the amount of topics that get sent in, but you can be sure I'll extensively discuss whatever you want me to. These videos may go up later on YouTube, so everyone else can get to hear your question being answered too. 


 - Add me on PSN/Steam/Xbox/Switch: Wanna play some games together? I will make sure to add you on any platform you want me to add you on! Feel free to enter my lobbies and make fun of me when you beat me to a platinum trophy ;)

- Let's stay in contact: We will exchange information so we can stay in contact, whether it's via Twitter DM, Discord, Skype or any platform we both use. You can always come to me for help, questions, a discussion or if you have any suggestions. I'll be there for you.

- An exclusive personalized 'Thank You' video after every 3 months: Wow. You support me at the highest tier to help me keep doing what I do and that's amazing. As a way to say thanks, I will be sending you a special personalized thank you video, after every 3 months of support, that I record only for you! It would be great if you could help remind me when you're eligible for a new video via Patreon DM or otherwise, and in return you can also request me to talk about a certain topic of choice that I'll make sure to discuss.
