About Jeremy Parish

Hi! If you don't know me, I'm an ex-games journalist (having worked at 1UP, USgamer, IGN, EGM, etc. over the course of 15+ years). Since 2014, I've been increasingly focused on this project: The Video Works series, a companion piece of sorts to the Retronauts podcast. Beginning with Game Boy and expanding outward to encompass NES, Virtual Boy, and many more platforms, my aim with Video Works is to dig into the history of the "modern" (i.e. post-Atari crash) console games industry, beginning with the NES's trial launch at the end of 1985. Video Works approaches the topic on a granular level: Surveying games for individual platforms in the order of their original release, while painting a picture of the broader context behind their creation, diving into the studios behind them, and exploring both their impact at the time of their debut along with their modern legacy.

If you enjoy these video ventures, I hope you'll consider supporting them. Tracking down complete-in-box vintage games costs time and money, and my dream is to be able to be able to pursue these history-centered projects full-time. The Donkey Kong Jr. Math video I've posted here is a perfect example of what I hope to accomplish: In-depth examinations of games, however inconsequential or slight, that capture them in the best possible fidelity, show off their original packaging, and explore the circumstances of their creation in-depth. Thanks for your support!
