He started out gaming on an old school Atari and a Commodore 64. Defender of the Crown was the shit back in those days. He would also play things like M.U.L.E, Carmen Sandiego, Summer Games, and Mars Saga.
Once he had his first Amiga, his fate was set to become a gamer. He mostly played point-and-click adventures from Sierra and Lucas Arts, but his other favorites were Empire, Lemmings, Future Wars, Buck Rodgers, and Battletech.
These days he also enjoys The Witcher 2, Mount & Blade, Titan Quest, Europa Universalis, FTL, Dungeons of Dredmoore, and LOTRO. He likes playing older games, because they are classics for a reason. He doesn't hop onto the latest thing just because the cool kids are playing it, and he believes that 90% of what's released these days is absolute crap.
Right now his home is right here on Destructoid. He has also done some writing for Front Towards Gamer and BitMob.
I know I am late to the party, but I finally started playing Bioshock. No, not Infinite, just the original. I tried playing it when it came out, but my PC couldn't handle it so I set it aside. A couple years ago, I started playing it again, and it just didn't grab me in the first few hours.
With all the hub-bub about Infinite, I thought I would give the original a try again, since I am to broke to get my hands on the new one. I pushed through the first 2 hours, and I still didn't get what all the excitement was about.
After three hours, I finally started to enjoy the game a little bit. I can see why people liked it so much. It still doesn't feel like my cup of tea, but I think I'll stick with it until the end. I just got to the point where the sub gets destroyed, and it's an interesting story.
I don't think it will go down as one of my favorite games, but I think I'll enjoy playing through it.
