About Way Too Many Games

Way Too Many Games is an up and coming gaming site run by gamers for gamers. Established in January 2017 Way Too Many Games began with the goal to provide objective reviews and better represent independent developers and niche titles, eventually expanding into board game as well. Since it’s launch, WTMG has been a presence at E3, Brasil Game Show, and Play NYC, with more events on the way.

At Way Too Many Games we feature a transparent review method divided into four segments: Graphics (25% of the final score), Gameplay (25%) Sound (10% of the final score) and Fun Factor (40%). Scores are always rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.5.

The Team:

Leo2Leo Faria – Founder and Maniacal Game Collector

Founder and mastermind behind Way Too Many Games, hailing from the southern swag that is São Paulo, a Sega widower who considers the Dreamcast to be the greatest console ever released, the greatest Guitar Hero and Tetris player you’ll ever meet. My favorite games include Perfect Dark, Banjo-Tooie, the Guitar Hero series, Bioshock Infinite and Star Wars Rogue Squadron II. I also own an Ouya. Never turned it on.

Jordan Hawes – Reviewer, Designer, and Cursed Ginger

Our resident Californian ginger, Jordan’s one of the only ones on the team who has a family (aka life). When he’s not taking care of sick kids he’s playing games with a wife who’s just as much a gamer as him or actually reviewing them for us, making him a valuable member of the team. Even if he’s pretty much stolen all our souls. His favorites include Dark Souls, Fallout 2, Majora’s Mask, and Shadow of the Colossus.

Jason Palazini – Board Game Division Head and Hipster in Chief

Boston born turned typical Brooklyn hipster with too much beard and too little time; trading off sleep for the chance to test his patience with the most frustrating games. From Dark Souls to The Witness to the ironman Xcom playthrough; if it offers a challenge, it’s on his list. When he’s not hiding in the mountains, editing music tracks, or pretentiously talking about craft beer, you’ll find him replaying the Bioshock, Mass Effect, or Soulsborne franchises.

Todd Eggleston – Reviewer and Reason HR Exists

East Coast Born and bred, Todd has been in this game for a long time. B&W TV in the kitchen with Pong hooked up to it. Atari 2600 with Pitfall and Combat. Commodore 64 with Wizardy. PC with King’s Quest on 5″ floppy’s. Nintendo, SNES, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, SEGA, PlayStation, Xbox… like previously stated, Todd has been doing this a long time. With his wife and kids, he is also introduced to gaming he would otherwise ignore like mobile, platformers and MOBA’s, but his main niche is those Action Adventure narrative games.

 

Heidi1Heidi Hawes – Editor-In-Chief, Reviewer, and Mother Overlord

As an avid gamer from childhood, Heidi has come to love and appreciate games from all genres and works hard finding time to play all of them between work and her two children. Some of Heidi’s favorite games are: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Dragon Age: Origins, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Bioshock, and Street Fighter 2.

AaronAaron Price – Reviewer and Lover of All Things Death Metal

As a long time gamer and an avid fan of music, Aaron found found love in old Gameboy games. As a teenagers, he became obsessed, and I mean obsessed, with the Guitar Hero and Rock Band series, probably having spent more money on additional songs than food. While they may be the most played games in his catalogue, they wouldn’t top out his favourites, which includes Dark Souls II (yes, the second one!), The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, Pokémon Crystal, and some free to play games, like Dauntless.
