Thank you for taking the time to check out my PATreon page (get it?!), whether you decide to pledge to me or not. And thank you for your continued support in watching and sharing my work!

By becoming my patron, you can have a direct impact on not just the quality of my videos but also which future videos I produce! Your support here helps keep me going, and also makes it easier for me to connect better with you!

Who is Pat?
Hi everyone! I'm Pat Contri. I'm best known for my Pat the NES Punk comedic retro game series on YouTube, which I have been producing since 2008. I also produce a series called Flea Market Madness and am co-host of the Completely Unnecessary Podcast - one of the highest rated gaming podcasts on iTunes. There are also other various videos and series I produce as well, including being the co-producer and co-director of The Video Game Years - a fun and historical look at gaming history. I also run the NES Charity Marathon, where my friend Ian and I play NES games to raise money for children's hospitals. If you have contributed to that in the past, I appreciate it! 

What's up with the hair?
I dunno, it's genetics!

Why Patreon?
Since I've decided that being a content producer would be a full time profession, I've wanted to figure out a way to interact more with those fans who want to support me the most - you! Patreon supplies a platform to do so, with the ability to receive/respond to feedback directly in a better way than what YouTube provides. The other fact of life is that between ad revenue being inconsistent from video to video, false copyright claims, and more people blocking ads, it's a little difficult to predict month-to-month exactly what income will be from producing and releasing videos. I also work and have worked on projects that I receive little to no compensation for, like writing projects, The Video Game Years, and keeping my website thepunkeffect.com going. With your help, it makes it much easier to produce my current content without having to revert to cheap or dodgy videos that only exist for click-bait, or taking on too many sponsored videos for games/products that I'd rather not. I am offering some rewards in return for your support (early video viewing, Patreon-only rewards, etc.), so please look and see if there's anything that catches your eye!

Thanks again for taking the time to check out this page. :)

Goals
6% complete
If this very lofty goal is met, there would be enough funds to begin an actual TV style episodic series - hiring crew, hiring actors/extras, and everything else that goes into production of a show of that nature. Picture Pat & Frank from the Pat the NES Punk show, but on their own adventures outside of the game room! Picture a series like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and you'd get an idea of the style/tone of the series, as Pat & Frank would meet other strange people, get in and out of trouble, have relationship issues, deal with shady flea market vendors, and more! It wouldn't be a video game show necessarily, but something bigger...
