The Arcade: First Contact. Haaaaave you met Lesley?

It’s a little family what we have going on here at The Arcade. And because we want you to get to know us better, we decided to feature our staff members in a series called “The Arcade: First Contact”.

You already know we are no friends of conventionalisms, so we figured out what a better way to start this series than from the very bottom, meaning our last addition to the bunch.


Lesley arrived a couple of weeks ago but he’s already turned our worlds upside down. His enthusiasm is contagious and he seems to fear nothing, not even the longest most eventful night shift! He’s also a very smart cookie that realized that being a lover of all things video games,  movies, and pop culture, The Arcade would be a fun place to work at. And so far he has not been proven wrong…


Here´s a rapid-fire round of questions for our man L:

– Videogame I love: It’s hard to pick just one video game I love. But the one that comes to mind first is Xenoblade 2 for the Switch.
– Videogame I hate: I do not hate any video game. I mean, how can you? But if I think about one I don’t like I’d say Fifa because I just suck at soccer.
– Best superhero: My all-time favorite superhero is Spiderman. Ironically, because I am afraid of spiders.
– Best thing to do in Amsterdam: chilling with some friends in Het Vondelpark when we all bring food and beer and just lay there listening to music and talking. 
And that´s a wrap! If you stop by The Arcade and see Lesley, challenge him to a game or two, he won´t be able to say no…
