About The Preferred Nerd
The Preferred Nerd is a video game news and information blog. We focus on mostly video games, but also mix in some other nerdy pop culture stories. We also produce a podcast that comes out weekly, usually around Thursday or Friday.
The Preferred Nerds consist of:
I mostly play World of Warcraft in my free time, leveling up multiple characters to level cap and rarely raiding.
My favorite genres are: Sports, Racing and Music but I’ll try just about anything. I only play FPSs on PC because I hate aiming with an analog stick.
I’m a father of two young daughters who are both beginning to be interested in gaming and other nerdy things. I like Nerdy music, including MC Frontalot, mc chris, They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton, The Phenomenauts and The Aquabats.
My all time top 5 favorite games are: World of Warcraft, Super Mario Brother 3, Project Gotham Racing 2, Starcraft and Pikmin.
As the primary source for Call of Duty references and overly-forced sports metaphors, I help the Preferred Nerd Podcast reach a wider audience by giving chode and idiot listeners someone to relate to. My debate and discussion skills, honed while sparring with 12-year-olds on Xbox Live, provide the optimal level of d-baggery to make Preferred Nerd eligible for an EXTREME Mountain Dew and Doritos sponsorship.
My favorite game genres are: Shooters, Survival Horror and Music but I have a soft spot for classic quirky Dreamcast games and Grand Theft Auto clones.
In addition to gaming, I’m also a massive movie nerd with a taste for older classic and foreign films in addition to the popular geek mainstays. I’m a big fan of the best and worst horror movies of the 1970s.
My top 5 favorite games are: GoldenEye, Mario 64, Metal Gear Solid 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Maniac Mansion.
I’ve been a gamer since I was 5 and learned to read on Batman and Superman comics. I wanted to be Captain N: the Game Master and read almost every single Worlds of Power book put out there. Following the Tao of the Man-Child, I continue to indulge myself in videogames, cartoons, movies, and anything else “nerd” that I can get my hands on. I’m the idealist of the Preferred Nerd trio, persecuting the monsters of the industry and championing for the cute and quirky.
My favorite game genres are: RPG, Action/Adventure, Third Person Shooters, and puzzle games.
My top 5 favorite games are: Uncharted 2, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Infamous 2.
