I am Jason Venter. I run HonestGamers and Gameroni. I am a gamer, a webmaster, a freelance game critic, a guide writer and a hobby novelist. I am fond of starting sentences with 'I' because I like talking about myself. Count the number of times that I used 'I' in this paragraph. You will see what I mean.

I probably should have done this sooner, before posting two posts here (one of which has since been deleted), so here goes...

Hello! My name is Jason Venter, and I play video games. I also watch movies and TV, and I enjoy reading fantasy/sci-fi and mystery novels. When I'm not doing one of those things, I'm writing or running a retro gaming site or I'm talking to people on Twitter. In a nutshell, I'm avoiding sunshine because probably I have some vampire in me.

I'm here on Destructoid because of the writing part. I've written for a number of outlets, including Hardcore Gamer Magazine (where I was an editor during its entire print run), GameSpot, GamesRadar, Joystiq and so forth. I've never been staff at any of those web sites, because I live in Oregon and that limits my role to freelancing. Plus, you know... it's always possible that no one would hire me even if I did live in California. Whether I'm currently being paid or not, I enjoy writing about games and movies and entertainment and technology, so I thought it would be cool to start blogging on a few sites, when I'm not busy with my ongoing freelance work (which for reasons related to keeping a roof over my head will remain my priority).

On this blog, you can expect to see me writing about the various movies I watch, the television shows, the anime... all of that sort of stuff. I plan to post completely original posts here a few times each week, and I'll be blogging elsewhere about game stuff unless something changes.

I'd love to get to know as many of you as possible, but I should mention up front that I especially love interacting with people who put love and care into whatever they write. If you leave a comment on this post or any other one I write and I can easily make out what you're saying (meaning that there aren't many grammar and spelling errors), I'll probably click through and follow you. I'm looking to interact with the bright gamers and movie fans who I know lurk and post here, and I hope that we can enjoy reading each other's posts for a long time to come.

If you'd like to know more about me, please feel free to visit my portfolio site, or you can ask questions here or just read more of my posts. See you around!
