Hello! My name is Gus and I play video games. I’ve been a gamer all my life and its the one activity in my life that has been constant. I have picked up different hobbies and skills but gaming is the one thing that has never left my life. I have been playing games for as long as I can remember and will continue to play for as long as I can.
I’ve had many jobs, been to several schools, and received a couple of diplomas through the years but my focus has always been unclear. I wasn’t completely sure what I wanted to do or what I wanted to be. I knew that I was passionate. When I found something I enjoyed there was nothing to stop me for learning as much as I could. I wanted to know the whole story. From there, once I knew the whole story, I wanted to tell others. I wanted to teach. When I learned something new, it fascinated me and I scoured to learn the story of whatever I was into at the time. History called out to me. Something that can’t be changed now or a hundred years from now. It is what it is.
I knew I wanted to write as I briefly had a series where I reviewed smartphones. I knew all the specs, the software, the quirks, the flaws, and the good. While I enjoyed my work reviewing phones, there was something missing. They were just slabs of glass and plastic. The personality and the character was in the content viewed on the devices. These reviews helped me understand that while the tech was important, the software was what people remembered.
That’s when I decided to start LifeLong Games.
LifeLong Games began as the idea of focusing on the games we can’t live without. Games that are a part of history and have their place set in stone. We look at the history before its release, the development cycle, the story, and, of course, the gameplay. We want to create videos that can be watched today, a month from now, and years from now so that anyone can come in at anytime and enjoy what LifeLong Games has to offer.
I will be trying to do a historical video every two weeks with smaller and more casual videos in between. I will also have recent game reviews if time and money permits. The focus for the channel is evergreen content about video games.
I still have a part time job and will be doing this, by myself to start, in my free time. The only goal I have for this site and my YouTube channel is that I keep this going. I will be posting the scripts and historical articles of my videos here in addition to my YouTube channel. I am not going to stop and eventually would like to turn this into a job opportunity or be able to commit to this full time. I will be leveraging YouTube ads to grow this channel as well as Patreon for those who enjoy my work enough to support this humble venture.
I am excited to talk about some of my favorite games of all time and hopefully teach many people about the games they might have missed or should take a second look at.
