In 1999 I hosted my very first game show at an anime convention. “Anime Match Game” debuted at A-Kon nearly twenty years ago, and became a staple of that con and in my lineup for the next six years. On the whole I’ve probably hosted the game upwards of fifty times since then.
It’s now 2018, and in a time where this country is divided more than it’s been in a long time, people tend to be overly sensitive about certain topics, many of which make for easy questions to write for the show. I no longer feel comfortable writing those sorts of questions, nor do I feel like I’m doing enough due diligence with the celebrity guests playing the game if I put one on the show and they inadvertently (or purposefully) say or do something that will hurt their career down the road. I don’t want to be responsible for that, so as of today, Match Game is retired.
You can see my updated game list here. Thanks for understanding.
