A Talk With Hip Hop Gamer Gerard Williams

A Talk With Hip Hop Gamer Gerard Williams


Oct 09, 2017 Dr Kristina Nelson

Recently, EventCombo sat down with the Hip Hop Gamer Gerard Williams to discover more about the secret to his success. Well known in the gaming industry for breaking the racial divide, Gerard Williams opened up and talked to us about his gaming and what he's up to.

Q: How did you get started playing video games?

A: My grandmother Margaret Williams taught me how to play videogames when I was 4 years old. She used video games as a tool to keep me off the street as I got older and a way for us to bond as well. Pac Man Atari 2600 was the first system and game I ever played and I've been a gamer ever since.

Q: What games did you play when you were growing up?

A: Everything man, from Contra to Mike Tyson Punch Out. I played Final Fantasy 7, too. My Favorite RPG as a child was Mortal Combat, but I’ve played so much more.

Q: Which game did you really hate the most and why?

A: I hated Friday the 13th on Nintendo. At first, I thought the game would be amazing since I loved the movie so much but the game was really bad. The sound effects were cheesy and you barely saw Jason. It was horrible.

Q: What is your all-time favorite game and why?

A: My all-time favorite is the first Super Mario Bros. on Nintendo because it created the passion for gaming that I still have to this day.

Q: What are you currently working on besides being the boss in the video game world?

A: Well, I wouldn't call myself the boss in the video game world, but instead I’m one of the dominate leaders in this field of gaming. I am the best at what I do in terms of delivering the most passionate content in gaming you will find. And currently I'm working on taking Logitech to the next level in the overall entertainment space. I am also working with B&H Photo to build a new outlet for them in the gaming space to help boost and develop their brand.

Q: Tell us about some gaming championships that you're interested in.

A: I'm not a pro player so I'm not winning championships in the e-sports category. But I am a champion in the industry simply because I've broken major barriers as a black man minority in the gaming space and that alone is champion worthy.

Q: What was your favorite gaming experience so far and why?

A: My favorite gaming experience so far is God Of War 3 because Kratos is my favorite character and he took down the Gods in the game.

Q: Which brands are you currently partnered with and what does that entail? 

A: Logitech, B&H Photo, and Hot97 are the brands I am working with now.  These brands pretty much allow me to bring authenticity to the expansion of their core as a brand to reach new audiences, create new revenue streams and boost brand growth.

Q: Where can we catch the Hip Hop Gamer in the next few weeks?

A: You can catch me at New York’s Comic Con doing my thing and watch out for my new content on Hot97.

Q: What's going down in 2018?

A: You need to watch and see…stay tuned for more.
