About us

I’m Greg and I started cheapergamer.co.uk back in 2017. Being born in the ’80s, I started gaming at a very young age and decided to start this website to share my knowledge & passion for gaming! I’ve been gaming, modding and studying video games for over 30 years at this point (I feel old writing this.)

Over these many years, I’ve owned, loved, studied & played a lot of consoles over my years including: –

Atari 2600, NES, Master System, Mega-Drive (Genesis), Game Boy, Super Nintendo, Game Gear, Game Boy Pocket, PlayStation, N64, Game Boy Color, PlayStation 2, Game Boy Advance, Dreamcast, Game Boy Micro, GameCube, PSP,  Nintendo DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo 3DS, WiiU, Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck and finally PC. (Whew!)

For the past 20 years or so, I have found myself increasingly interested in console modifications and console hacks. I have modified almost every Nintendo Handheld I have come across and have a high affinity towards portable & retro gaming.

As well as mods and hacks, I’m also quite interested in game design. I enjoy analyzing aspects of a video game composition, especially older games. I love going back and seeing how they work compared to how I remembered them growing up.

To give you an example of my taste in games, a list of my favourite games in no order would include: –

Project Zero / Fatal Frame II

Final Fantasy V

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

Cool Spot (Megadrive / Genesis)

Zombies Ate My Neighbours

Silent Hill 3

Super Mario World

Earth Defence Force 4


Disgaea 4

Advance Wars


Dark Souls II

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

Resident Evil Code Veronica X

& Many more…

I hope you find this site helpful and perhaps, even somewhat amusing at times. If you have any suggestions or just want to reach out to me at any time, feel free to email me [email protected]

Thanks for reading!
