What Is Wrestling With Gaming?


My name is Yahel and I'm the creator behind Wrestling With Gaming, a channel where I create documentary-style videos covering all aspects of video game history as well as the occasional game review. My videos aren't lazily made opinion pieces. They are well researched and meticulously edited mini documentaries, made with the goal of preserving gaming history and educating others about it along the way. Some of the topics I've covered include the history of the Game Genie, Sega's 32 bit internal war, the 3DO, the story of the Philips CD-i, the making of Superman 64, the story behind the Super FX chip, and the story of the Power Glove, just to name a few. You can view all of my videos at: Wrestling With Gaming on Youtube!



Why Now, Why Patreon?

I LOVE researching gaming history and creating these videos for people. Producing these videos takes a lot time and surprisingly, money. Until now, WWG has been supported by Youtube ad revenue. Unfortunately Youtube ad revenue is very unreliable. Your donation will help the channel acquire rare and obscure pieces to cover, help with upgrading equipment, and hopefully allow me to expand these videos to include in person interviews and to create more content more frequently.

What Do You Get?

Although Patreon will let you donate as much as you want, I want to keep our tiers simple and reasonable.

$1 - Early access to new videos & Patreon only videos
With this tier you'll have access to new episodes early as well as Patreon-only videos such as:

- Early access to trailers for upcoming videos
- Vlogs
- Behind the scenes videos of upcoming episodes
- Access to recording of Youtube Live Streams. In the past, I would delete my livestreams after I was finished. Going forward I'll post copies here for Patreon supporters only. 


$3 - Participation in Q&A/discussion videos plus perks from $1 tier
With this tier you'll have the ability to submit questions and discussion topics for Q&A videos. The videos will be made public but topics and question only come from you! The goal is to make these videos monthly, perhaps more or less frequently depending on the volume of questions. This tier will also allow you to access the WWG Discord server (coming October 2017).


$7 - Custom NES WWG Video Game cartridge every quarter! (Plus all previous tiers)
Wow, I'm floored you would think enough of my content to donate $7. Thank you! With this tier you get all previous perks and also you'll receive a NES video game cartridge with Wrestling With Gaming or other custom gaming themed art every 3 months. In other words, you must be an active $7 a month patron for a minimum of 3 months to be eligible for this reward. Cartridge art will change at the beginning of each quarter, this will make sure that I send you a different and new cartridge each time. This is an empty cartridge shell, meaning no game is included. Cartridges come in assorted colors. You may message me your color preference and if available, I will send it in that color but I can't guarantee the color you'll receive. Below is 2017's Q4 (Oct-Dec) cartridge.


The Ultimate Goal


If this campaign reaches its  $3000 goal, I will now be able to work Youtube as my full time or part time job. Reaching this goal means a minimum of 1-2 videos each with at least one of those being a new documentary-style video every two weeks. This is on top of Patreon Q&As, Vlogs, behind the scene videos, previews, etc

Goals
$126 of $500 per month
Covering obscure games, consoles, etc. can be expensive. This will help offset the cost of covering obscure items such as the Famicom Network System and Phlips Cd-I, both of which I've previously covered. This will also go towards covering my costs for some of the software I use, music purchase/licensing, and other random costs that come up producing these videos. This will help ease the financial burden for me and I thank you!
