About

Thank you for taking the time to check out my Patreon page! And thank you for watching my videos and reading my articles and books!

By becoming my patron, you get lots of extras, including my monthly column, exclusive articles and videos, advance articles and chapters of my books, behind-the-scenes photos and updates, and more, including archival stuff from my office and game room no one else gets to see. Plus, you have direct influence over the videos I make and the articles I write. Your support helps keep me going and makes it easier for me to connect with readers and viewers, which I love to do.

Brett Weiss: Author and YouTuber
Hey, everyone!
I'm Brett Weiss. I’ve been a gamer since 1975 and a professional writer since 1997. I specialize in video games, comic books, movies, rock music, and the like. I love creating content for people who share my interests.

Videos galore!
My YouTube channel, simply called Brett Weiss, features Tales from a Retro Gamer, where I share stories of gaming in the '70s, '80s, '90s, and beyond. I've got tons of cool stories to tell, like the time I asked Ozzy Osbourne to play Pac-Man. I also do pop culture tours, pickups videos, and interviews with famous gamers, comic book and pop culture experts, and other industry folks.

Books, books and more books!
I’ve written 10 books: Encyclopedia of KISS, How to Get Published: 50 Successful Query Letters; The 100 Greatest Console Video Games: 1977-1987; Retro Pop Culture A to Z: From Atari 2600 to Zombie Films; The Arcade and Other Strange Tales; Classic Home Video Games 1972-1984; Classic Home Video Games 1985-1988; Classic Home Video Games 1989-1990; The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M); and The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 2 (N–Z).

Articles! Articles! So many articles!
I’ve written more than 1600 articles for such publications as Fangoria, Filmfax, Game Informer, Game Room, Video Game Trader, Classic Gamer Magazine, the Comics Buyer's Guide, Toy Shop, Scary Monsters, Toy Cars & Models, Back Issue, Alter Ego, and Robot magazine, among many others. I also have a national monthly column in AntiqueWeek called "The Pop Culture Collective" and a national column in Old School Gamer, "Brett’s Bargain Bin." I also produce content for www.brettweisswords.com.

Why Patreon?
I spend many hours each week producing videos. It's a ton of fun, and I love talking about video games and telling stories about retro gaming. However, it doesn't really pay much, so Patreon is a great way to help keep me going and support the channel. It helps support my writing as well. Plus, I can pay my camera man and editor! It's also a great way to connect with you! Making videos is a labor of love for sure, and I will continue telling stories about gaming and pop culture history, regardless. Whether you decide to become a Patron or not, we are still friends! Thank you for watching Tales from a Retro Gamer, and thank you for your support!
