Writing careerEdit

Seanbaby's original website houses many reviews of old video games, a substantial section on the old Super-Friends cartoon, critiques on old DC comics, a collection of Hostess Pie ads (with commentary),[5] sarcastic commentary on Christian fundamentalists and hipsters, examples of poorly translated English, reviews of bad movies and comics, ineffective or overblown self-defense techniques, current events, and a photo gallery of himself with friends.

Seanbaby was a frequent writer for Electronic Gaming Monthly.[6] In addition to his reviews and other content, he wrote a monthly column concerning bad games entitled "Rest of The Crap." He was a frequent contributor on the popular gaming website 1UP.com, where his EGM work was posted. He provides commentary on bad games for 1UP's Broken Pixels show. He also writes a column called "The Final Last Word" for The Wave magazine of Silicon Valley.

He was also a writer for the short-lived MTV2 animated comedy show The Adventures of Chico and Guapo.[6] He has returned to regularly updating seanbaby.com and began writing as a columnist for Cracked.com.[7] Apart from the typical "listicles" of Cracked.com, Seanbaby's articles also include parodical comics, usually golden-age comicbooks with altered dialogue, and the running gag of 1930's ice-cream mascot "Popsicle Pete" being characterized as a supernatural monster. In 2020, he and fellow Cracked veteran Robert Brockway began publishing a collection of comedy articles supported by Patreon subscribers.

CalculordsEdit

Seanbaby is the creator of the mobile game Calculords, which combines elements of lane attack, collectible card games, and math puzzles.[8][9] According to Sean, "Calculords is a weird idea that I’d never get to see unless I made it".[3]

A sequel, Calculords 2: Rise of the Shadow Nerd, has been announced.[10]
