About G8R


   Justin R. James (L8RG8R2U) is a 24-year old Let's Player known for his love for video games, random references, spontaneous singing and whatever else he does while recording videos. G8R has always had a love for gaming, but it was Chuggaaconroy and Superskarmory who'd inspire him to make videos.

   Since the beginning of his channel in 2012, L8RG8R2U has made over thirty Let's Plays and twenty collab projects. While he mostly plays games such as The Legend of Zelda or Splatoon, he doesn't limit himself to just Nintendo, which can be seen with games like Tomb Raider or Spyro the Dragon. With more than one ongoing project always happening, there's usually something on the channel for everyone. Some current Let's Plays include uploading every Splatfest from Splatoon 2, and a 100% guide through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (which took nearly three years to plan out).

   In 2017, L8RG8R2U started a collab channel with his friends; TheJamesRolls, GreenCobrasGaming and Pancakearmorman. On G.A.M.E, the four friends have recorded over twenty collab projects, which include Versus (two or more players racing to finish a game the fastest), Co-ops (two or more players playing a multiplayer game together), and more recently Co-Stars (one player helps another through a blind playthrough). Beyond this, G.A.M.E also features various shows including the gaming trivia series called the Gaming Gallery, Roundtable Discussions, and more recently a review series called Game Bytes.

   Beyond G.A.M.E, G8R has also befriended other content creators online such as The Otaku Artist (who's performed voice acting work for some of his Let's Plays), GamingWithPie (who's collaborated with him on a number of streams, and is the cover artist for Yeti Man), and he's collaborated with others such as Lightsaga, MinnyMinccino, and more.

   Outside of YouTube, L8RG8R2U is also a published author with his first book, Korbet Adventures: Thunder on the Mountain, publishing in July 2019. He's currently working on three more books including Yeti Man: The Beast of Seaport, Korbet Adventures: Lightning in a Bottle, and a currently unannounced third book. G8R has also revealed that he's working on developing a video game in his own time, although no details have been publicly revealed yet.

   Some of L8RG8R2U's current goals: Reach 400 subscribers, Let's Play every 3D Zelda game, inspire somebody to make videos, visit every Disney theme park, publish every Buenayam novel and own a giant Mr. Saturn plushie! 

   "Thank you for watching our videos, and until next time, L8RG8R2U!"
