I've considered myself a "gamer" since I got an NES and Super Mario Bros. back in the mid 80s. With every generation, I added at least one new system: SNES, Playstation, Dreamcast, Playstation 2, Xbox, GameCube, Wii, and Xbox360. Of course, I wasn't content with just these. I had to play video games everywhere, so I needed portables as well... Game Gear, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, PSP. This still wasn't wasn't enough, so as other systems went out of production and out of style, I picked those up too, often at a deep discount. Then there were the accessories: light guns, joysticks, memory cards, and so much more. When my girlfriend moved in with me (you might know
her), she had to bring her collection too.
I play many games in many genres, but I'm a sucker for platformers, shooters, action/adventure games, fightiing games and music games. I used to really like RPGs, but I don't have much time or patience for them lately. Some of my favorite series include (in alphabetical order):
The Legend of Zelda
Super Mario Bros.
Of course, there's probably at least a hundred more I can add, but I won't for the sake of everyone's time and sanity. (Maybe I'll add a few more later)
I'm currently co-chairman for the Miami video game convention Infinite Bits at the Doubletree Miami Mart Hotel and Convention Center on October 23-25 2009. To all who'd like more information, you can find it at our website, http://www.infinitebitsconvention.com
