Patrick Scott Patterson (Scott to his friends) is a Multi-Media personality specializing in video gaming and pop culture. His work appears across a wide variety of media, including live speaking engagements, television, film, radio and more.
Patterson fell in love with video gaming when he first encountered a Pac-Man arcade machine as a child in September 1981. So enamored with video games, Patterson eventually found interest in not only the games themselves but the history of the industry and the culture surrounding it. In time, he became the go-to guy for media discussions about gaming topics ranging from the controversies over violent video games to a variety of historical topics and chats about current industry events..
Among the media outlets that have cited or featured Patterson are USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, G4tv, Guinness World Records, ESPN, NBC News, the Chicago Sun Times and a variety of regional newscasts, newspapers and radio stations across North America.
Patterson appears in documentary films such as World 1-1, Pixel Poetry and upcoming documentary Nintendo Quest.
