James "The SegaHolic" McGhie


James became a SEGA fan in the mid 90’s through a dual-combo of Virtua Fighter in the arcade and the PAL launch of the SEGA Saturn. These days he's the co-host of The SEGAGuys RetroPod alongside Dan “The Mega” Driver, and you can usually find him playing SEGA Rally trying to shave milliseconds off his best times.
His favorite SEGA games, given his arcade “roots” are the arcade ports, primarily on the SEGA Saturn and to this day he still thinks Virtua Fighter 2 on the Saturn is the peak of gaming engineering.
