Ones To Watch : Prudent Gaming




One of my favourite people to talk to on Twitter or Instagram is Michael from Prudent Gaming, he also makes some great content whether that is on his blog or his YouTube so I was delighted when he said he would be happy to take part in a little interview for here on my blog. Michael is a pretty recent discovery for me as we have only being following each other since this year but he has definitely become one of my favourite blogs to read and I find myself watching quite a few of his YouTube videos and honestly I think you lot with love his content too so let's find out a bit more about him... TNGG: So Tell us a little bit about yourself. Michael: My name is Michael Neale and my brand is Prudent Gaming. I have been gaming for as long as I can remember and it’s a real passion on mine, so I’m trying to share my passion with the world through my blog (www.prudentgaming.com) and YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/prudentgaming). Balancing this with a full-time job and a six-month-old son can be challenging, but I am determined to turn my passion into a career to support my family and bring myself happiness and fulfilment. I would be honoured for you to follow my journey.

 TNGG: What got you into gaming & what is your earliest gaming memory?

Michael:
The PlayStation One was what really got me into gaming. The games that came out for that system provided some of the best times and experiences with my friends and I’m so thankful for it. My friends and I would always go to each other's houses to play games like Spider-Man and Abe’s Oddysee. My earliest gaming memory is of playing Golden Axe on the Sega Mega Drive with my parents and older sisters. Was I any good? Most likely no.

TNGG: What got you involved in blogging about what you do?

Michael: I have a passion for gaming and I wanted to share that. I began seeing a lot of bloggers on my Twitter so I decided that I would try it out for myself. I looked up a tutorial on YouTube showing me how to create a WordPress website and Prudent Gaming was born!

TNGG: What are some goals you want to achieve from your blog? Michael: Some goals I want to achieve for my blog are to show people just how powerful games can be in terms of emotional connections. I would also like to create a robust guide on how to play all the games you want without breaking the bank. It’s important for me to put my readers and viewers first and to provide valuable content for them.

TNGG: What are some of the best experiences you have had thanks to your content so far? Michael: I consider myself to be quite new to blogging and I have had some extended breaks at some points so I can’t say I have had many experiences because of my content. However, I had a message from someone on Instagram recently, saying that my content and engagement has re-lit their passion for games and they have now started creating their own gaming content. That blew me away and I am incredibly happy for that person. I really hope they win at what they want to achieve.

TNGG: What is your favourite thing about what you do? Michael: My favourite thing about what I do is making videos and blog posts by being completely myself. It’s that simple. I love the fact that I can be unapologetically me and people will listen to what I have to say. I’m thankful every day.

TNGG: In terms of content what are some of your favourite type of posts to do? And what are your favourite types of videos to do on YouTube?
Michael: I don’t think I have posted enough to fully answer this question, but my favourite video I have made so far is the story of when I was stopped by police at a midnight release of World of Warcraft Cataclysm. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDR9Meqqy9c) I’m exploring different types of posts and videos so this will probably change in the future!
TNGG: If you could only play 1 game for the rest of your life what would it be?
Michael: One game I would play for the rest of my life is Final Fantasy IX. It’s my favourite game of all time and it always will be. It means everything to me. TNGG: Where do you see yourself in the future in terms of your content?
Michael: I see myself making more deep and meaningful posts and videos that people can look to for advice and can have in-depth conversations about the topics I discuss.
TNGG: Where can we find you and your content?
Michael:  You can find me on the following platforms:
Twitter - @_mneale (www.twitter.com/_mneale)
Instagram - @_mneale (www.instagram.com/_mneale)
So there you have it that is a little bit more about Michael and Prudent Gaming. I would 100% recommend you checking him out over on social media and his blog & YouTube because there is there is brilliant content over there. Personally my favourite blog post of his is the Great Video Game Soundtracks post. 

Who would you like to see me ask a few questions to in the future?

See you soon,
