Meet the Team: Jason Dobson

In the world of professional game blogging, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups: the bloggers who investigate the stories and readers who make silly comments. These are the first group's stories.
  • Name: Jason Dobson
  • Job Position: Blogger, drinker of Kool-Aid
  • Past Experience/Education: I graduated with a BA in MIS from Northeastern State University in Oklahoma in 2000. I began writing about games on my own website etoychest.org as part of a senior project, which got my foot in the door with a handful of other gaming sites, including Gamasutra, Serious Games Source, and of course Joystiq.
  • Life outside of the 'Stiq: I'm 33, married, and a proud father of a young son who is well on his way to being a gaming nerd himself, and have 2 rambunctious miniature dachshunds and an Italian greyhound. The Dobson house is a zoo.
  • Why I'm blogging: Since I've been old enough to know spikes = death, I've been in love with video games, and if there's one thing I like more than playing games, it's talking about them.
  • First game experience: The first game I remember playing was probably Windham Classics' PC adventure game Below the Root, a game I have still never finished
  • Favorite games: Wizardry 7, bar none. In fact, Wizardry 6–8 make up one of the best trilogies of video game nirvana ever put to code.
  • Who shot the food? Duh, the elf.
There's more to come every Tuesday and Thursday.
