Nicholas JoebgenSenior Quality Assurance AnalystPocket Gems

Nicholas Joebgen has had a love for games ever since he could pick up a controller. His first true love, The Legend of Zelda, introduced him to the possibilities that game worlds can transport people to other spaces and times, letting them live out their wildest fantasies that they could otherwise never achieve. It wasn't until he was watching a video games tv station show doing a documentary on the development of a game that he realized it could be a viable career. Ever since that day, it's been his dream to work on video games and is one he's happy to live every day now. With a degree in computer games development, Nicholas has worked on titles for all sorts of mediums from VR to mobile, but can say with certainty that his favorite games to work on are live games because he's continued to be amazed by the communities they create. If he had to pick, his favorite games would probably be MMOs, with open world RPGs as a close second.
