SNES Omnibus Writer Spotlight #24 - Matt Miller

You’re not going to find a nicer guy in or out of the video game industry than Matt Miller, who I met a few years ago at an arcade event in Austin, and then again in Iowa. He became an instant friend and we’ve kept in touch ever since. Super cool dude. I knew Matt was a sincere and kind person, and a fierce competitor at video games, but I had no idea he was such a good writer until I sent out solicitations looking for nostalgic stories for my SNES Omnibus project. He turned in highly polished work with a personal, distinctive voice.

Here’s Matt’s bio as it will appear in TheSNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M), which will be out in June or July:

Matt Miller is a lifelong gamer and multiple video game world record holder, both as a solo player and as one half of the co-op gaming duo, Team Mayh3m. He has had records published in five books in the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition series. Matt has been interviewed in a variety of outlets, including Obsolete Gamer, Twin Galaxies, Extended Play Arcade, TheWalter Day Collection, and The Retro Junkies “Winging It” podcast. He also appears in the acclaimed 2015 documentary, Nintendo Quest, as well as its companion series, the Nintendo Quest Power Tour.
