Gaming

I livestream 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/ecmyersvids) at least once a week, usually Wednesdays from 10–11 p.m. Eastern, and I sometimes play other games on Friday nights or whenever the mood strikes and I have time. For my “NES Alphanumeric!” series, I’m blind-running my way through the unplayed games in my collection of 325+ NES cartridges, in roughly alphanumeric order from 1943 to Zen the Intergalactic Ninja. My running commentary typically covers writing, parenthood, gaming, television, current events, life… whatever. Please feel free to watch, hang out, and ask about anything!
