sfge_johnsarcade_smallFor the past ten years, John Jacobsen has been a co-host on one of the longest running independent video game shows, and Xbox Live Community Podcast Of The Year, The Video Game Outsiders. In 2007, John was sucked into the classic arcade collecting world. His first machine was a Donkey Kong, his second a Ms. Pac-Man, within a year he turned his basement into his own personal arcade. Soon after John got his first arcade game, he started a website and weekly YouTube series called “John’s Arcade” and he immediately had a passionate following. Each week John takes his viewers on his arcade adventures in the form of road trips across the country visiting notable private and public arcades as well as gameplay and tech videos. John also shows his viewers how to restore and fix classic arcade games in a “you can do this!” type presentation. John’s Arcade currently has approx. 16,000 subscribers and over 2.4 million Youtube views. John’s Arcade can also be seen on over a dozen public access channels across the USA. In 2013, John started a spin-off podcast to the Video Game Outsiders podcast, Arcade Outsiders. Upon its release, it shot up the charts on iTunes and is currently one of the top arcade and pinball collector podcasts.
