|The Hockey Gamer|
The Hockey Gamer (goes by hardysforever on YouTube and "yellowapelsz" on Twitter) is a countdown maker and Let's Player. He has done many projects of varying quality, mostly focusing on video game music. Prone to long periods of inactivity.
After starting his YouTube channel in early January 2008, he remained unactive for over a year before posting his first video "Awesome Video Game Music 1: Seymour Omnis". He posted mostly AVGMs until his first countdown "Top Ten Boss Tracks". He also started a "Highly Overrated Video Game Music" playlist, then removed the word highly from the title, then dropped it altogether, also deleting his first 36 countdowns prior to his collaboration with RabbidLuigi. Started his first Let's Play, of Cave Story, on November 18, 2011, made his first review, of Bit.Trip BEAT, on November 3, 2012. All reviews after Call of Duty 4 done in one sentence, starting with Battletoads.
