About Joe D. (Joe Goes Retro)

Who Am I?

Elsewhere in social media I often answer this by saying “I play and collect games from every era but my first loves are Nintendo, Atari and Sega.” But there’s more to it than just that. I’m a producer of internet videos on the subject of video games, or more specifically those that I consider “retro”. Stuff I grew up with or just enjoyed playing in years past. I’ve been creating new videos almost every week for over three years.  I started off with very simple videos back in the summer of 2013, which were very low-budget.  As time went on, I decided I wanted to take things a bit more seriously.

The primary feature of my channel are my game reviews. I have been honing my craft of making to the point reviews and overviews of games since February 2014. I also do top 5 lists and a number of other features. I’m always coming  with new ideas for content, and I am dedicated to improving my content as best as I possibly can.  From 2014 to the present I've invested thousands of dollars in buying video equipment and computer hardware out of my own pocket for the purpose of making better content.

Here are examples of what I'm doing on YouTube currently:

Now, what is this Patreon thing about?

Not just would I love to improve the content which I create, and be able to implement new ideas within my content, but also make more content more often. However that requires two very precious commodities: time and money. Without beating around the bush, that’s where Patreon comes in.

Patreon is a subscription-based fan-funding service for us creative types out there. If you find what I do worth supporting, you can choose to send a few bucks in my direction. This is completely optional and I will never charge for my content.  You can choose how much you want to contribute and cancel whenever you want.

In return for your support you will have access to some exclusive content such as blogs and of course the forum here.  I might do Q&As in the future in which I will answer questions posted by patrons.  Or I may possibly poll my patrons for suggestions on video topics or games to review.  There may be other perks as well.
