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 mastered typing thanks to Space Quest, honed his poker skills on The Sierra Network, and learned to hate after a particularly traumatic game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
Today, Tim lives in Chicago with his three kids and strives to find that perfect balance between family, career, and Warcraft. He enjoys broadcasting, martial arts, rock and roll, growing and shaving his beard, singing show tunes to the homeless, and losing at Mario Kart to his lovely, talented, and amazing girlfriend.
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.

Pedro and Crofto summed up my feeling about Dylans passing very well.
Mike wrote an excellent letter sharing his scare with cancer too that was emotionally moving, and which was well read by Tim.
And just to bring it around into games somewhat, curious about how far into the future we will have to wait before we’re going to get a game that gets to gamers hearts and emotions, similar to Mikes letter about his experience and thoughts about his cancer and about Dylans loss.
Thanks for sharing guys, and goodbye to Dylan.
140+ episodes, and think this one was GC’s best show. Ever. The Dylan Tribute was honestly touching and the rest of the show I often laughed out loud. I think this show is really an absolute Gamecritics highlight. Since my two kids (will there once be a “Gaming with your children” show?) I actually have 0-time to game, but I keep on listening to the GC podcast anyway and after all these years you guys now almost feel like family. Almost;-) Some of the (Monstenhunter, Destiny) games you mention this show I don’t care much for, but when you guys… Read more »
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Dylan’s death. He did an incredible job on the podcast and was talented and funny as well as seeming like a great guy. That was a really nice tribute folks; sincere condolences to Dylan’s family and friends.
My thoughts completely echo those of Pedro above, but I would just like to add that, despite not being present, Mike Bracken’s contribution to this podcast was most poignant. Tim did a brilliant job of relaying something that Mike put a lot of thought into writing, and I felt quite moved as I listened, despite the fact I had never met Dylan or knew anything about him save for his podcasting abilities and presence. The choice of music – Jeremy Soule, Fallout 3 – following the segment on Dylan was also hugely affecting and completely fitting. As I listened I… Read more »
