VGChartz Staff - Jake Weston, Writer

Jake Weston began his life long love of gaming with his Super Nintendo, beginning with Super Mario World and Mega Man X. After a childhood satiated on super-powered plumbers, blue bombers, anthropomorphized bandicoots and radical hedgehogs, Jake discovered that his passion lied in this interactive medium, and decided to try his hand at his own gaming blog. Soon after that, he began writing for other various websites, and was brought on board the VGChartz staff in the summer of 2011. In between playing and reviewing games, composing music, and working on that movie script that will totally be finished one day you guys I swear, Jake Weston received his Bachelor of Arts in Cinema Studies from University of Oregon in 2013. His favorite games include the Mass Effect series, Metal Gear Solid, Valkyria Chronicles, Final Fantasy VIII, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
