This is me. Hi.
I am Liam ‘Doc’ Watson, a 25 year old video game enthusiast writing out of Wellington, New Zealand. I got a degree in Media Studies from Victoria University Of Wellington, and I used my time of study to add more academic looks at video games into the fold of their media studies program. The fact that they didn’t fail me for this must mean I can’t be all that bad at it really.
My previous writing projects include writing for the local university magazine, Salient, as well as a Arizona-based website called ByteSizeGaming (now defunct), and, until recently, a UK-based website called GamersFTW (also now defunct), where I was fired due to asking my editor one too many difficult questions. When I’m not working my ass off or sleeping, I enjoy pub quizzes, playing guitar and bass, professional wrestling and a little bit of cooking
Breaking Backlog is my first permanent project in video game writing. It’s a combination of talking about games that interest me right now, critical analysis of what particular games do and why it matters to us in the overall picture of video games. I hope if you are reading this and the site in general, you are enjoying it and will take something out of the stuff I am writing.
If you want to read about the genesis of Breaking Backlog, click here. Otherwise, I have another full catalog of work done for other companies, the archive of which you can find here. I also take writing inquiries, if you are interested in the work I do and would like more of it for your reading pleasure, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading. Seriously, it means a bunch.
