MC Gamer from his vlog
|Alternative names||MC Gamer, McGamer, MC|
SuperMCGamer, also known as MCGamer, simply MC, or his personal name Matthew J Moffit, is an American Let's Play commentator and a member of Mindcrack, having joined the Mindcrack Server in December 2011 after asking Guude if he could join. His former Minecraft username was mcgamer.
MC Gamer's name came from the webshow in 2006 centered around gaming that he and a friend, named Cutter, created. "MC" was their initials. MC Gamer kept the name just as he was caught in the Minecraft craze. When he was registering his Minecraft username, he somehow was not able to place capital letters, twice (first for mcgamer and second for mc_gamer). This problem led some people to say or type his name as "McGamer". MC Gamer added the "Super" part to his username because the username "mcgamer" was already taken on YouTube, by a group of people he refers to as "the trampoline kids." His alternative account is used as an NPC in his Fun for Freedom server. MC changed his Minecraft username to "SuperMCGamer" in February 2015.
MC Gamer started a non-profit organization called Fun for Freedom. It aims to help people get involved with fundraising for charity through new and fun methods like game marathons. The Zeldathon Network, part of Fun for Freedom, runs gaming marathons for charities, including Child's Play, the American Diabetes Association, the American Cancer Society, and the Red Cross, since winter of 2009, and has raised more than USD$63,286.47. The marathons run twice a year, once in summer and once in winter. On the fourth day of the "Zeldathon Lives" marathon, MC injured his knee after playfully striking a pose in front of the camera. He was rushed to the emergency room shortly after, but returned the following morning.
On 22 April 2015, MC announced that Fun For Freedom would be shutting down within the following weeks.
MC Gamer is currently living in Meadville, Pennsylvania, USA. He has picked up the ability to play the piano and took up sculpting as a sort of hobby that does not involve technology. He had a snowshoe siamese cat for 12 years named Buddy. He currently owns a Siamese fighting fish named Stormageddon: Dark Lord of All after the Doctor Who character of the same name. MC Gamer is of Norwegian and Irish descent - Norwegian on his mother's side, while Irish on his father's side. MC Gamer has an obsession for many of the chat emoticons on Twitch, most notably: "Kappa," "TriHard," and "Kreygasm." MC Gamer is a huge fan of The Legend of Zelda series, he even has a large Zelda collection. His favorite video game is The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.

MC Gamer had a series titled "MCPlz," in which he played particularly terrible flash games. MC challenged his friend The_Silver to different multiplayer games in one of his earliest series MC vs. Silver. "MC IRL" was a series that highlighted the antics of MC and his roommates in real life. MCFAQ featured frequently asked questions being answered, as the title suggests. MC hosts a gaming podcast entitled "The Temporary Podcast," along with DireDwarf and several of his local friends. In addition, MC hosts the radio show "Hyrule Academy," available at radiohyrule.com, discussing the lore and history of The Legend of Zelda. In his most recent series, Zelda Weekly, MC discusses news, theories, and fan creations surrounding The Legend of Zelda. MC played the title character in the short series Mr. Ubiquitous. Mr. Ubiquitous was created for a high school vocabulary contest. The show was featured prominently on MC's first YouTube channel, TNMC Productions, alongside "enNemM," a series of short skits performed by MC and his friends. MC posts Weekly Channel Updates and Behind the Scenes videos after reaching a Patreon milestone.
MC Gamer has an unhealthy obsession for Lapis Lazuli. It is a running gag from an early episode of MC vs. MC. MC often says phrases in Minecraft to the confusion of others, including saying "bane of arthropods" whenever he attacks regardless of the mob or the weapon, and "bucket of caving" whenever he uses a Water Bucket. MC often livestreams speedruns of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, as well as various games from the Super Mario franchise for "Mario Monday," on Twitch.

At the age of 23, MC Gamer was considered the youngest member of the server for some time before it was revealed that Arkas is younger. He got involved in Mindcrack when he was looking to have a new Minecraft Let's Play and Mhykol referred him to Guude.
MC Gamer had a near-daily series titled "Good Morning Mindcrack." It's purpose was for MC to talk more often to the viewers about what is on his mind and about updates in the time it takes to eat breakfast, and was the main medium through which he played on the server. The intro scene was recorded in his Fun for Freedom Minecraft server. The scene is meant to represent a kitchen and the daily morning routine: putting something in the oven to eat, grabbing a cup of coffee, and throwing a newspaper on the table. At the beginning of each episode since 27 May 2012, pictures of his fans eating breakfast were displayed. A picture could be submitted to MC Gamer at http://bit.ly/GMMFormE2 but are no longer shown. MC does collaborations with Millbee in a series titled "Orange Wool." They reconstructed a village and named it Woolopolis, No Shoes. Now, they are working together on a town currently named Dooceaipolis 2poo, which is also part of their solo episodes. MC's solo episodes are known as MC's Orange.
MC Gamer had a previous series called "Challenge Mindcrack," in which he fulfills challenges submitted by viewers. Every time he failed a challenge, he throws blocks of Lapis Lazuli into Lava. MC had another series titled "Mindcrack at Dusk," it was streamed live simultaneously on YouTube and Twitch. MC also briefly played on the modded Feed The Beast server and had plans to build Emmett Brown's garage from Back to the Future.
MC Gamer's skin is based on Giovanni from the Japanese franchise Pokémon. The back of his shirt contains "The Spawn" logo, a gaming community website. The skin was custom-made by his friend The_Silver. MC Gamer's current skin differs from his previous skin in that shoes were removed. This is a reference to the Orange Wool town named "Woolopolis! NO SHOES!"
