Welcome to my side of Dtoid, the name's Johnny but I'm otherwise known on other circles around the internet as Fogo. A couple of facts that you should know, one is that I've been gaming for about 19 years now, and as you would expect, I have an eclectic taste in games. I love the old stuff as much as I like the newfangled current-gen stuff, but I do tend to hover around retro gaming whenever I get the chance to.
