About the Website

Gamers Tavern

This website was founded on September 21, 2002, and was formally known as Gamers Tavern on March 13, 2003. The first game review was published on September 21, 2003, and the first article was published on April 29, 2007. Gamers Tavern also established an official YouTube channel on September 20, 2012, with the first video being uploaded on March 21, 2013. From its inception, this has been a website dedicated to old school video games. Primarily a retro review site, Gamers Tavern focuses its reviews on classic video games released in the 1980s and 1990s. New games will occasionally be reviewed, especially if they bear resemblance to games of the past.

The main objective of this website is to keep old games alive by informing future generations of gaming's greatest classics. Old games, much like modern games, come in two flavors: good and bad. This site aims to educate the masses on what old games are worth checking out and which ones should be avoided. Even veterans of the retro game scene may find this site useful, as there are countless obscure gems just waiting to be discovered. Whether nostalgic or simply curious, Gamers Tavern is a good resource for those who are interested in gaming's past.

About the Webmaster

I'm a writer and coder proficient in the English language, html, xhtml, and css. I also know a little bit of php, javascript, Java, C++, C#, XNA, and SDL. I can do a few things in Photoshop, too. On top of all that, I have some minor video editing experience with Sony Vegas. I use some of these skills and my incredible tenacity to keep this website going. Someday, I hope to take over the world.

My favorite video game genre is the platformer, which probably explains why I've reviewed so many platform games. As far as consoles go, my favorite console of all time is the Super Nintendo, but the Sega Genesis is a close second. When it comes to portable systems, my favorites will always be the original Game Boy and Game Gear. I like apples, bananas, and grapes. I also like to jog. This website was a result of my passion for the games released in the 16-bit era, although I've expanded the scope of the site to include a couple of other eras, as well.
