- Brief Bio
Cleveland native Tim Spaeth grew up in a happy household – a household with a father whose major client happened to be an Atari games distributor. This led directly to Tim's first nickname: "The kid who got Atari games before anyone else." Indeed, he knew Pac-Man and E.T. were colossal bombs weeks before the rest of the world, and the resulting celebrity brought him great pleasure.
Through the years every aspect of Tim's life has been touched by gaming. He learned to type playing Space Quest, honed his poker skills on The Sierra Network, and fell in love with his wife over a game of Super Mario World.
Today, Tim lives in Chicago with his wife and twin daughters, and strives to find that perfect balance between family, career, parenting, and Warcraft. He enjoys broadcasting, martial arts, rock and roll, growing and shaving his beard, and singing show tunes to the homeless.
In late 2008, Tim became the producer and host of the GameCritics.com Podcast, and he's thrilled to be bringing GameCritics' unique editorial voice to a brand new medium.
