In 2022 Brad Burton started up a games convention that was all about reliving the glory days of the 80's in the 2020s with a gaming event that was known as Nerdcon. Middle Aged Gamer Guy and his producer AimeeEve took over that event in 2023, seeing a gap in the market that was not just about reliving old classics, but celebrating the timeless nature of the best games in the world, no matter when they were created. This was the birth of Timeless Gaming Convention, celebrating gamers and gameplay from the past, present and long into the future.
