Gamepad Project’s Story
Gamepad Project started in 2015 by 4 colleagues who share a passion in video games. They decided to make a video game blog to spread their knowledge, skills, thoughts and ideas on anything about video games, however, after one year of running this blog, the three original founders left the site due to financial reasons and the blog was left to me – Mikez Ancheta, the sole proprietor of this blog – www.gamepadproject.com.
The site still remains the same being a video game news and reviews blog and is being run by one person.
The man behind the blog
I must say that I am an old school gamer because I started playing video games when I acquired an Atari when I was in 1st grade. It was a “hand-me-down” console from cousin as they will migrate in the US and can no longer bring the system with them. In that very moment, I fell in love with video games and spent my whole childhood playing games such as Atari, Family Computer, NES and SNES.
The passion still continues even if I am in high school and college, and the systems I am playing back then were PS1 and PS2.
Now, I still play video games…A LOT! and I spend most of my free time and day off from work playing video games from different platforms like handheld, consoles, mobile phones and PC, and the passion didn’t stop at playing video games because I also collect video game stuff like retro games, retro consoles, and video game related action figures.
As of the moment, I own the following handheld devices and video games consoles which I use for the content of this blog.
Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)
Sony Playstation 1 (PS1)
Sony Playstation 2 (PS2)
Sony Playstation 3 (PS3)
Sony Playstation 4 (PS4)
Sony PS Vita
Nintendo Wii U
New Nintendo 3DS XL (Check out my top New Nintendo 3DS accessories here.)
iPhone 6S Plus (for mobile games)
