I'm a game collector living in Silicon Valley, who loves coffee, pizza, & giving back to the gaming community.

Hey there, I’m Jason. Welcome to DownStab, where I share gaming news, insights, and reviews as I delve into my collection of 4000+ games! I have a penchant for retro games so expect to those here as well as random ones you’ve likely never heard about.

If you’d like to see me on other platforms, you can find me on my Instagram and streaming with RPGaymer on Twitch.

What would you like to know?

How did you get into gaming?

My brothers got me into it! When I was younger we had an NES. I remember having to share with them and playing games like Bubble Bobble or Super Mario Bros. 3. On Sunday mornings though, I’d get up early and play before they woke up. Mega Man III, TMNT, and Dragon Warrior were my earliest games!

Where do you find all your games?

Mostly I browse Facebook Marketplace and Craiglist online. When it comes to local stores GameStops are the most accessible but I’ll make a trip to some local game stores in the area. I’m always on the lookout for retro games.

WHY do you collect?

It has been a passion of mine for a long time. Growing up I would make some money and sometimes buy games. I realized I could get more games if I bought older, used games. Fast forward decades and huzzah, game collector! Also, it’s nostalgic fun to go back and play those older games I couldn’t get too years back.

Where did the name "DownStab" come from?

It’s from Legend of Zelda. Specifically, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. One of the special unlockable upgrades is a downward sword thrust called Downthrust. The move also technically appears in the Super Smash Bros. series as Link’s aerial Down-A attack. A bit of inside joking among my friends about the move, and the name Downstab was born and stuck ever since!
