About GmanLives

Hey Sonny Jims,
I'm GmanLives! You might have seen some of my videos floating around on Youtube. I'm well known (kind of) for doing reviews of first person shooters, both old and new school. I grew up playing violent games like Doom, Quake and Duke Nukem 3D and even 25 or so years later and these are some of my favorite video games ever made.

Infact, when you search for reviews for such games as Blood, Quake, Shadow Warrior and Half-life, my reviews are always showing up as the top response, if not 2nd or 3rd. I also do videos I call "Mod Corner" which showcase popular and obscure mods for games like Doom and Half-life. Over the last 3 years, I've built up quite a loyal and fantastic following of people who share my love for first person shooters, but as the audience is growing, so is the demand for video content.

It's a lot of work!

I'm not sure how many people know the amount of time and effort that goes into making these videos. I'll spend at least as long as it takes to finish the game itself, which could be anywhere from 4-5 hours into upwards of 30 or 40. Then there's writing the script, recording the voice over and editing it all, which can be another 4-5 hours on top of that. It's a lot of work for a "hobby" and juggling it with other work is tricky.

What I'm all about:

What you can expect from my videos is a no nonsense approach to game reviewing, I try to avoid most of the politics surrounding the gaming industry, involving sexism, racism and all that kind of stuff, instead just focusing on what I think makes a game good or bad. My eventual goal is to do a video review for every single FPS game ever made. This is no small feat, so I will need the help of others to keep me motivated so I can accomplish this.

Will Patreon change anything?

Not at all. Regardless of how things progress on Patreon, my approach to reviews will always be the same. I've always tried to be as honest as I can when reviewing video games and you know that everything I say is coming straight from the heart. Thanks for supporting the channel either way and for stopping by!

If I reach this milestone, I will regularly review games outside of the FPS genre. Again, this will largely depend on games requested by viewers, but there will be other games included as well.
