(Wondering where the name came from? Look here.)
Welcome to “You Found a Secret Area,” a blog all about the obscure, the odd, the unknown and other miscellanea about the world of video games.
You will not find this at You Found a Secret Area:
- Sizzling reviews and previews for the hottest new games. (Doesn’t mean this is strictly retro games only, I like all generations of games.)
- Stupid console war debates.
- Internet shows with obnoxious hosts.
- Articles about boots. (That’s silly.)
What you will find is this:
- Info about game modifications (like this) and retail game addons (like this one)
- Talking about obscure budget games you might not have heard of, like a video game version of a classic game show.
- Talking about times where video games and TV combine into some mish-mash of mediocrity. Wanted to hear my take on how CSI: Miami botched gaming in such a ridiculous way?
- My travel experiences at gaming conventions such as PAX, Portland Retro Gaming Expo, and others.
- Occasionally something non-video game related, like a travel Trivial Pursuit and a Price is Right electronic handheld game.
- Whatever else comes to mind, usually whatever junk I find at thrift stores.
I hope you enjoy what the site has to offer. This idea was in my head for years before I started it on January 2012, as there was a dire lack of places that cover some of this stuff. I’m not the first to tackle this kind of subject matter, but I hope you find what you see here interesting.
I do this strictly as a labor of love, and don’t get paid for my work. If you love my work, leaving a comment, sharing or liking the post helps, but if you really want to support my work, I have a Ko-Fi that you can support. Every little bit helps!
