We are three guys who discuss video gaming (especially retro games), gaming trends, the history of video games and the impact the video game industry has had on us and everyone else. We've played a lot of video games in our life time and hope to share our experiences and opinions with you and entertain you in the process.Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, Three Guys One Joystick, is a team of two brothers (JOSH and DEREK) and their best friend (MIKE), who have been gamers since the 80's (playing games that date back as far as the mid 70's). We've all played the same games, on the same platforms and we (mostly) love playing the same video games. Don't be surprised if most of what we talk about was played on the NES, PC or SNES.Atari, NES, Game & Watch, GameBoy, Sega, Game Gear, Lynx, SNES, Genesis, Atari Jaguar, Saturn, N64, PlayStation, Virtual Boy, Dreamcast, GameCube, Xbox, PS2, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, PC Gaming, Dos Games, Windows Games, Mac Games, just to name a few platforms we've gotten our hands on... They all have impacted our lives in some way and we plan on taking a look back at everything we've played, provide you "re-reviews" of older games, and maybe just rant about some of the current trends and games we don't like...and of course talk about the classics we do like.We welcome feedback and input. One of our main goals is to form a community and forum in which we can all share our input on the topics we present and just talk about the great hobbie that is video gaming. We'd also like your input on what you would like to hear us talk about. We here at Three Guys One Joystick hope you enjoy this project, and we look forward to talking to you.

The new year is here, and we already have had a great start with such titles as Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Resident Evil: Revelaitons (typo intended…right Capcom?). In this episode we take a look at our backlog from 2011 and some of the games we’ve finally caught up on, and also discuss what games […]…
The holidays are just around the corner and we have been bombarded with some great games within the last couple months. The year started off pretty bad, but we ended up with more great games this year than anyone had time and money to spend on them. Since the three of us here at TGOJ […]
This week, we sadly lost Mike to the void that is “the holidays” and he wasn’t able to record. That being so, your hosts Derek and Josh went ahead and recorded without him! We decided to hold off on the Wolfenstein/Id Software episode since Mike is our resident Id games specialist, and instead discussed some […]…
DOOM!!!! Doom was one of the defining games in the early days of the first-person shooter genre, and it’s still a damn fun game today. But I won’t make you waste brain cycles reading text… when you can listen instead! Why is this Episode 6? What the hell? What happened to 3-5? Did we pull […]
METROID!!! So it turns out that it takes a while to talk about an 11-game (and counting) series. How long? About 3 podcast episodes. Here’s part 1 of our 3-part series on the Metroid games. This part covers Metroid, Metroid Zero Mission, and Metroid 2. Again, we’d like to thank Horse the band for allowing […]…
Since so many people have been asking for it (I was being funny just then), here’s the 2nd part of Episode 1! Should we have called this “Episode 2”? Probably. Did we? No!! Listen and send us your feedback, or just post a comment below. And don’t forget to listen to Part 1 if you […]
Here it is – the first part of the first episode of the first podcast by the guys at Three Guys One Joystick! In this episode, we discuss some of our earliest gaming memories. The episode turned out a little longer that we had expected, so we’ve broken it into two easily digestible parts. Check it out, and […]…
