Biography

Brothers and sisters, I am Andy Frogman, AKA The Priest Of Gamers. Please forgive me if the moniker comes off as lofty, but it was not a title of my choosing. For a few years now I've been known by many under that name, because I made it my duty to serve the gaming community, and attempt to heal rifts between fellow gamers. For that work, a number of people said I was like some kind of priest. A priest of gamers.     I have a passion for video games, Nintendo games especially, and the amazing gaming community, and it breaks my heart to see the rifts caused by internal disputes, trivialities and oppressive social politics, censorship and manufactured outrage. Games developers should have the right to create the game that they want to make, and not be forced to add to it, or take away anything that was not a part of their vision. On the flip side, the consumer has the right to purchase, or not purchase any game they wish, without fear of ridicule or guilt and shaming tactics from the perpetually offended. If you don't like a game, don't buy it. It doesn't give you the right to take it away. Despite my strong political opinions, I try not to include it in my regular articles, though I will point out wrong doing, censorship and hypocrisy as it arises in my Let Us Play series. A news project, the title of which derived from a play on words for the call to prayer "Let Us Pray" and a rebellious demand to those who would happily revoke our rights to play games, to stand down and Let Us Play! I'm also working on developing a number of other irregularly updated projects: Pixelvision - Lists and trivia Relics - A look at old gaming hardware Articles of Faith (working title) - Opinion/Editorial pieces related to gaming. Remember my friends, "Priest" isn't a title of power or authority. First and foremost it's a testament of service, to ones god, and that god's people. In this sense, I serve the Perfect Game, I study the works of it's prophets, and I try my best to bring goodness to it's community. Peace and High Scores to you all!
