When I first met Jeffrey Wittenhagen a few years ago, I didn’t quite know what to think. He was friendly enough, but a YouTuber writing books? What!? In the time since, I’ve discovered that he has a lot of energy and enthusiasm for gaming, and that he's been writing game reviews since the 1990s. Our writing styles are decidedly different, but he has a devoted following for his self-published books, his podcast, and his videos. This video (adult content warning), made by a fan, will give you some idea of the devotion I’m talking about.
Moreover, Jeff has a trait I appreciate: he can handle constructive criticism and still remain friends with said critic. When I gave his NES book a middling review, he took it in stride, which shows me a great deal of character and confidence. Further, he’s since collaborated with said critic, contributing some very interesting stories to my SNES Omnibus project.
Here’s Jeff’s bio from The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendoand Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M):
