A huge Thank You and hug to all Game-Rave and GameRaveTV viewers out there, specifically you. You're the reason I do what I love, and I love making your retro gaming life that much more complete. If you're only just now discovering Game-Rave.com, let me ask myself questions to help you learn more about me!

What's the Current Episode like?


You are?

Jason Dvorak from Game-Rave.com. Pleasure to meet you! Original PlayStation fan numero uno and long time contributor to the gaming world at large through various outlets.

What is it exactly that you do?
Game-Rave.com is the go-to source for gamers and collectors. Along with creating reviews, features, and video content, the site focuses on the literal full set of USA released Sony PlayStation game titles. This includes all known variations like Greatest Hits and Collectors Editions, obscure releases with the Lightspan Educational Library, and doing crazy projects like the 5 Second Video and the Living History Updates.

I also cover the Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, LaserActive, Sega CD, Turbo Duo / Grafx-16, and Neo Geo CD.

That’s actually kind of cool.
I know, right? I try and be as available to everyone as I can. You have questions, I hopefully have answers. Game-Rave’s database of information has been used in Wikipedia, in eBay seller descriptions, published in collector’s guides, and more. I was even featured in the Guinness Book of World Records: Gamer Edition. As time goes on, more and more content will be hitting the site, as future expansions are already being planned for more types of data.

So what happens with my Patreon Funds?
All Patreon funds go 100% directly back into the site and show. In the past, this included green screen special effects, allowed upgrades to the lights used, and more. Currently it includes software licensing (we use many of the Adobe Cloud programs for production), site finances, and other hidden costs. Once those are covered, the remainder is put towards any physical items needed to maintain a 100% accurate variant database.

Nifty. So what do I, the Patron, get out of it?
Your patronage supports the content you love, and allows for more of what you love to be created. Any amount - regardless of amount - is donated on a monthly basis. Think of it as a tip jar. 

For your patronage, various benefits are automatically included, and more arrive based on the amount pledged. No matter your contribution, you have your name permanently etched into the YouTube end-credits (even if you move on), early 3 Day Access to all new weekly episodes, and my behind-the-scenes commentaries and ramblings. Other bonuses include permanent credits at the end of every episode, your name and personal web-site linked from Game-Rave.com, as well as receiving an exclusive, hand drawn postcard from me. The postcards are individually numbered and limited to 100 total. You even get to request what gets drawn on it!

Give examples of the cool things you have done!
You’ve got it! First, there’s the PlayStation 5 Second Project, where not only do I feature every USA released retail game in one video, but there are tons of hidden transitions in play, like watching Shiva be cast across the entire Final Fantasy subset, or the Grand Slam set up across Sony’s MLB Series. Made with real games on real hardware!


Second, there’s the  Living History Project, where you live the PlayStation’s original release list in real time. Right now it’s 1997 (2017), and the project will continue in real time till the last game (FIFA 2005) is released in…in 2024 (2004)!



I wasn’t kidding about variant hunting. For examples of the extensive hunting and research going on, check out the Variant Tabs on games like Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy VII.



There’s also the dedication to the system’s rarities. Check out the full fledged features on promotional items like the  Elemental Gearbolt: Assassin’s Case and the long lost Lightspan Online Connection CD. You know, that disc that made the PlayStation connect to the internet?



And of course, there's our weekly YouTube shows Pause Mode and GameRaveTV. So what are you waiting for? Join the fun!
