Retro Game SuperHyper is a videogame blog and fanzine over 35 years in the making!

I'm TJ and I've been a videogame enthusiast since 1980. I've been around the gaming scene for a loooong time, living through the Golden Age of arcades and all of the console generations, and having been involved in the online classic gaming community since the '90s.

Retro Game SuperHyper was launched in October of 2016 as a way to share the many stories I've accumulated in almost 40 years of videogaming, as well as musings on videogame collecting, design, trends, philosophies, and whatever else I think could use a good discussion. Or sometimes I might just feature a game I love, or a cool item from my collections, or an old game I've just discovered, or photos of arcades I've visited.

It's been a lot of fun working on RGSH -- so much so that once a year, around the site's October anniversary, I put out a physical, printed fanzine. The zine remixes some of my favorite blog articles with fresh layouts, and also presents all-new, exclusive content not found anywhere else!

I'm not looking to make a living off Retro Game SuperHyper, but in order for it to improve, it could use a little help. That's where Patreon comes in!

As it is now, RGSH is hosted on a Premium WordPress site. It's relatively inexpensive, but it does cost money to run the site, maintain a larger storage capacity, and keep it ad-free. In short, just a little cash would help keep the site going!

Then, with just a little more help, I could put those funds to use in the form of further projects such as publications, videos, trips to arcades or gaming events, or who knows what else!

And if RGSH were to earn funding beyond that, I could in turn use it to sponsor some major classic gaming events, such as Midwest Gaming Classic and Portland Retro Gaming Expo. So basically, your donation to RGSH could be put right back into the classic gaming community by helping to make awesome events like that happen!

So what do YOU get from donating? Well, I usually write my posts well in advance of posting them. Sometimes I take photos first, before I even write anything, when I just have an idea. Here on Patreon, you'll have first access to what I'm working on, as I'll post photos I'm taking, some rough drafts of posts, or maybe something secret that I wouldn't post on the blog OR my Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook accounts! You'll also get PDFs of the Retro Game SuperHyper Fanzines, as well as every issue released in the future. And you can get involved by suggesting topics you'd like me to write about on the blog! I'd love to take your ideas and explore them, and bring you more stories in the classic gaming world!

My readership is small, but growing bit by bit as people are discovering and enjoying the blog. The classic gaming community is generally made up of some pretty rad people. I hope that if you enjoy my work, you can find a way to help it improve!
