Help Me Create More Retro Gaming Videos

Have you seen my latest video reviews for classic retro Sega Mega Drive and Genesis games? If not, you can check them out here. It’s all part of my continuous goal to keep creating better content about the games I love.

Sega Mega Drive and Genesis Reviews

I’ve had some really positive feedback so far and I’m trying to improve each one I make. It’s something I have a lot of fun doing and I can’t wait to create more! I have a huge list of games I want to cover, not just for the Mega Drive / Genesis, but for SNES, NES, Master System, PlayStation, N64, Dreamcast and loads more! There’s years worth of content – and that’s purely talking about the reviews and retrospectives. That doesn’t even begin to cover all the other great game related videos I want to make.

This is all a hobby, some fun, an interest and enjoyable way of spending my free time. At the moment I can’t commit to a set schedule, although I aim to make roughly two of these videos a month. I’d like to do more, but that is pretty much my maximum capacity for the moment and this is where you come in… how you can help!

Become a Patron of MyGamerXP

I’ve recently signed up to a website called Patreon, which allows supporters to contribute to projects on an ongoing basis. My videos will always be free, this just works more as a kind of tip jar, where you can offer thanks through a small donation per video – if you want to.

What do I get out of it?

Well, in addition to the usual videos, you can be rewarded with exclusive extras, all of which are detailed on my Patreon page. More will be added over time, so keep checking back for updates.

What about “Let’s Play’s” and Pick-up Videos?

These won’t count. The Patreon page is strictly only for what I deem as quality content – something that has required effort to produce. Pick-up and Let’s Play videos are nice and can be entertaining, but I feel these should be treated as supplementary content. So if you pledge $1 per video (for example), it won’t count for these types of videos. They will just come as a free extra.

I have more questions!

Then please e-mail me, leave a comment below, or contact me on twitter. I’ll be more than happy to answer any of your questions. I want to be as clear and transparent as possible.

How Will This Help?

Any contributions made will help make more videos in numerous ways. Any amount, large or small, will allow me to purchase new games, new equipment, or even take time off work to create these instead. That would be the dream! It’s not essential, and as I’ve said before my content will always be free! This is just an idea to help make better content on a more regular basis.

I’d really love your support and to hear your feedback (good or bad) in the comments below. Please let me know what you think of this idea or if you have any important questions.

Matt has been hooked on games since he received his first console (a SEGA Mega Drive) for his 7th birthday. He now spends most of his time on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS, but will use any excuse for a retro gaming night.
