My name is Forrest, I have been involved in video game journalism since 2011. I began my journey in freelance articles and reviews which later led to interviews with some of the top game developers in the industry for that time. 

In 2013 I began making game reviews on YouTube in efforts to score a job in the video game journalism field. I saw the median changing for how content was consumed with video game content such as reviews, going more towards a video based audience from a article based audience. I jumped at the opportunity to get videos made and learn the new exciting ways to bring life to my reviews that could not be achieved in writing such as making skits and throwing a very comedic and informal backgrounds story's in the mix that would have hampered a article based review.

In late 2014 I was hit with a major blow that destroyed my original YouTube channel which at the time was called Game By Night Reviews. I was hit with multiple false copyright claims that began to be a common and notorious problem within the YouTube community. I had no idea how to combat these problems, so what I did what dispute all of them at once not knowing how they could come back to haunt me. None of the claims made sense because they were in fact my videos I had created and used complete original work. I was hit with 3 copyright strikes within one week of my appeals of the claims and my channel was terminated.  I was in a major slump after that, I had lost two years of hard work just surpassing 500 subscribers and really growing a following. I loved making videos on YouTube but after I lost my channel I was so bitter over the whole situation I was ready to quit all together. In early 2015 I decided to try again, this time taking full precaution before making videos in learning how the broken copyright system on YouTube worked. I am still making videos as of now and still love doing it, while I am still getting false copyright claims on my videos I take them one at a time and do what I can to try to help fair use actually be known within YouTube. 

I would like to be able to throw myself at YouTube full time but I do have a full time job outside of YouTube so I have to work on videos mostly at night. I want to be able to put control into the fan's hands in helping support the channel directly while rewarding them, unlike how it would be with the ad revenue from Google. If you love honest hard hitting game reviews and want to show your support for the gaming community pledge freely.

I make video game review videos on YouTube among other video game related content. Any support that is given will go directly to the building of the channel.
