Hi, I’m Jeff Rud. I’ve been doing this video game thing since I was about four years old.
In 2011, I decided to start using my video game powers for good. I helped organize the first Giant Bomb Community Endurance Run, an event which has raised tens of thousands of dollars for charitable organizations over the years.
From 2016 to 2018 I was the editor and booking agent for HardcoreGaming101’s Top 47,858 Games of All Time podcast, upon which I made occasional appearances to make dubious rankings of games. In the same period I worked with Dylan Cornelius on a brief relaunch of the Sega Does podcast.
I began the NamCompendium in late 2017, and intend to keep working on it until it is finished or death prevents me from continuing.
If you’d like to contact me directly with questions, my Twitter DMs are open and shall remain so unless otherwise stated. You may find me on that platform @electricviking. You can also send me a message right here.
If you’re interested in ways to support the NamCompendium, consider becoming a monthly subscriber to my Patreon! Or if you’d like less of a commitment, there is a link to my Kofi account at the bottom of this page, and I would gladly accept a (digital) cup of coffee as a thank you.
