Sean Garmer has a long history with Video Games. He started his love of games watching his brother play Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System. His first system was the Super Nintendo and he literally spent days at a time playing Super Mario World. He later fell in love with Pokemon for the Gameboy and thus his Japanese RPG fandom was born. Sean has channeled that love of games into reviewing them. Not only that, he also analyzes the games industry on the Video Games 2 the MAX podcast, and writing about it on various sites. Sean pretty much plays any kind of game nowadays, but he still prefers his love the JRPG.
Marc Morrison brings years of experience writing about games and of course playing them. He currently writes a Top 8 column every week at 411mania and also reviews games as well. Marc plays different kinds of games and he takes analyzing games to heart. Marc is also a big fan of the classics and collecting games. He’s constantly looking for deals whether it is at the local flea market, on Steam, or another digital network.
