Zap Night was created out of our love for video games and to share our experiences to the online community through podcasts, streams, and other social media formats. Each one of us brings to the table our own opinion on each video game title we play. We encourage you to join us on our adventures and be a part of the conversation.
We set a goal for a new game and review each month. No game is off limits! We play games from all genres and on any console, from new gen to retro. We will announce the next game we are going to play at the end of our posts to give you a chance to play along with us and share in the journey. There may also be opportunities to vote for the next game we play!
The ZapNight Team:
Danny - Host and CreatorI'm a tech geek who loves to collect games and game consoles. I had been finding it challenging to find time to play anything so by creating Zap Night, I aimed to dust off my games and play!
My favorite genre is J-RPGs and I'm a huge Final Fantasy fanboy. I know its cliché to say, but Final Fantasy VII is my all time favorite game. But, don't be surprised to get caught into a debate with me over the coolest Pokemon. Gotta catch them all!
Kaylie - Host and Co-CreatorI'm a lazy smart-aleck lady who enjoys long naps on the couch and traveling (mostly to the fridge.) I started playing games when I was really little after watching my brother play various games back in the day. I hope by joining Zap Night I can return to my love of playing games and revisiting those good old nostalgic feels (and maybe new ones!)
J-RPGs are also my favorite genre of games to play, Final Fantasy being my favorite series (I'm a long time lover of IX!) I also have a shameful amount of time invested in Pokemon, Animal Crossing & Harvest Moon games. Ah the countless virtual corn I've harvested over the years...
Lori - Website Manager (and occasional guest host)I'm just a girl who loves the games I can pickup and play for 10 minutes at a time or 2 hours if I want. I grew up on Dr. Mario, Kirby's Avalanche, and playing the first few levels of Super Mario World over and over. I wasted my teen years on Neopets playing mini games and teaching myself some basic html skills. My favorite games include Banjo-Kazooie, Mario Kart, and just about any Yoshi game. These days you can find me playing Emoji Blitz on my phone, clearing land in Minecraft, or fighting machines in Horizon Zero Dawn!
Evan - HostI'm a gamer with a big passion for the FPS genre. Growing up around games like Halo, Half-Life 2, and Medal of Honor, I quickly became a fan of shooters. More recently I've taken a broader look into different genres of video games and have become very fond of other series like Kingdom Hearts, Sonic, and InFamous. I also have been known to get a frustrated on certain games, so be prepared for a little rage. I hope that by joining Zap Night I can share my love of the more hated games out there with the rest of you and hopefully change some people's negative opinions on shooters. | Evan on YouTube
Seth - HostI'm just a guy who loves nothing more than hanging out with friends and having a good time. Life is too short not to! Video games have always been a social thing for me, which is why I play them. They have a certain way of bringing people together and creating communities and friendships. It's because of these ideals that I started YouTube in the first place. I figured if people would like to watch videos of me and friends enjoying life, then good for them. Hopefully they can try and do the same. Because I love playing games and especially playing games with friends, I hope I can bring a lot to the roster of Zap Night. | Seth on YouTube
