David Earle, (president of Kid Video Warriors)
Officially the date has changed a few times over the years. Initially the date was July 8 until it changed to July 12 in 1994 and 1995. In 1996 Video Games Day was moved all the way to September 10. Since 1997 Video Games Day has been steadily on September 12. However, the first date is still celebrated independently alongside the September 12 date. This makes both dates celebrated enough to both count as the right dates.
