About Geeky Gaming Stuff

Hi, my name is Dana and I love video games.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! As an avid gamer, I love to discuss everything about video games, collect cool gaming merch (and wear it proudly!) and research gaming topics that influence our society today.

Who Is This Blog For?

Anyone and everyone who is a gamer or knows a gamer in their life. It’s for people of all ages who:

  • are interested in other gamers’ opinions
  • love to discuss anything video game related
  • love to collect video game merchandise
  • love to nerd out over cool hardware
  • like to read game/product/service reviews before purchasing
  • don’t mind reviews of older games/products/services
  • like to learn about video games and the culture
  • and lots more!

If you found yourself in these few points, then you’ll feel right at home here! When I’m not playing video games, I love to browse the internet to find interesting video game facts and while I’m at it, I also stumble upon a lot of cool gaming merch that I’d all like to have if I were rich. 🙂

If you’re like me, you love video game merch. Action figures, posters, concept art books, t-shirts, accessories, kitchenware, you name it! I created this blog so I could show the stuff I find to other people than just my friends (who are probably annoyed at me for going “Look, I found this from [insert game here]! Isn’t it cool?”)

How many hidden gems are lying around and you don’t even know about them? I don’t look just for official merchandise, I also like to support fans in their beautiful creations. Large games, indie games and everything in between.

What This Blog Is Not?

This blog isn’t a gaming news portal. Others do it bigger and better than I ever could.

I like to take my time, so the reviews I publish can be of games/products a few months or even years old. I don’t think they lose value over time but can offer a new perspective.

My Story

Dana

I’m a 30-something year old and more of a gamer than I’ve ever been before. Ever since I was a little kid, I’d play games on our PC, which back then ran on MS-DOS.

Console gaming passed me by quite successfuly until I turned 28 when I got Xbox 360. When I was growing up, gaming consoles weren’t advertised and/or were very expensive. It didn’t help that my country was trying to get from under the Soviet influence at the time and it took a lot longer for western entertainment to reach us. It didn’t really matter to me, I had a lot of fun gaming on the PCs we had over the years (and the handhelds).

Now I have built my own PC from scratch, I own Xbox 360 and Xbox One. I’m hoping to get a Playstation 4 in the future too. Maybe even Nintendo Switch. So many choices!

A little about me

When I’m not working on this blog, I’m a freelance webdesginer and webdeveloper. I’ve been in the IT field for more than 15 years out of which I’ve spent a large portion building my freelancing business, which I officially started in summer 2010.

I also have a part-time job in a bookstore but I am eyeing the local game store for any new job openings. 🙂

In my spare time I like to read, write, make fanart, spend time with friends and family. I love dogs, music and good food (who doesn’t?).
