Peter has been playing video games for over three decades and has been part of the video gaming press community for the last 10 years, serving in a variety of roles from reviewer to copy editor to freelance writer. Console gaming is his passion, and he makes no secret of his love for "retro" games on platforms like the Nintendo Entertainment System
, the TurboGrafx-16
, and the Atari VCS
. When he's not playing games, he's usually either selling them as a low-level manager for a prominent chain of video game retail stores or is writing about them in his Consoleation
blog, which he started back in 2008. Peter is somewhat of an "armchair analyst" and frequently breaks down and discusses business trends and sales numbers within the industry.
Fun fact: Peter has the distinction of holding the World Record for Mania Challenge
(as officially recognized by Twin Galaxies
) and held the record for Sea Wolf
for nine years before losing the title in 2010.
