8-Bit Eric started playing video games at the age of four when his older brother bought a Sega Master System. From there he was instantly hooked on playing with anything he could get his hands on. Shortly after, his life was forever changed when he received his own NES for Christmas and the rest is history. In 2010, he created a video game review show called The 8-bit Eric Show on YouTube. Since then, he decided to start collecting video games again and became friends with many other gamers in the YouTube community.
