A little about me

Hi. My name is Nick Sinclair, the owner, writer, editor, and graphic designer on CareerGamers.

My first experience of gaming was in the late and great 80s when my father lugged home a commodore 64 after a long day at work. After unboxing the beige beast, I plugged in her cables and slid a cassette into her deck. A few moments later, the 64 flickered to life, rainbow lines kaleidoscoping across my 14″ portable TV. I was captivated. The interactive worlds, playing out pixelated on my screen, tugged at every fibre of curiosity in my mind. It was love at first sight and sound. Gaming would change my life forever.

From that young age, I knew I wanted something, anything, to do with the games industry. I tinkered with game code, played around with graphics, and designed levels for Mario Brothers on graph paper. I was obsessed. Probably a little too obsessed if you asked my parents.

But my obsession didn’t relax with time, It only grew. As console generations, burst into life and faded into shadow, I learned more about gaming, design, and development.

My GCSEs blurred past like a corner in Wipeout. My A-levels started and ended as quickly as a Super Meat Boy playthrough. And after all the learning, and the shock of actually passing my exams, I sat wondering, on the steps of my old college, what to do with my life.

Fortunately for me, the gaming gods were looking down on me that day. Taking pity on a gaming lost soul, they inserted a red keycard into the end-level door, and I walked through.

My local University had decided, that very year, to start a game design degree. Within days, I applied, was interviewed, and was invited to join the degree.

After 3 years, of playing, designing, and making games, I left uni with a 2:1 in hand and a determination to set up my own games company.

Banding together with a few Uni mates, we formed a small games company, at the time Wales’ first, called Chaos Trend. During my time there, we made some games, had some laughs, and learned a lot about ourselves. But most of all, I learned that my love of writing and graphics was greater than my love of making games.

After many late-night chats with the lads, I left to pursue a career as a freelance gaming writer. Since then, I’ve tried my hand at many forms of gaming content creation, including blogging, videos, and streaming.

In 2019, after managing the content for multiple websites and businesses for many years, I decided the time was right for me to create my own gaming websites. And so CareerGamers was born.

My mission is to create some of the best video game content on the web. I want my gaming content to educate and entertain in equal measure. I want to “edutain” the gaming world.

If my mission resonates with your own, I’d love to hear from you. You can reach me at:
