Good question! (douche) Stick around and I'll tell you.
It all started way back in 1979 with the Atari--just kidding. I hadn't even spawned until 1983 so I won't regale you with my entire gaming history. I've been gaming since, well, as long as I can remember. My memory isn't the best but I do remember rocking some Burger Time and Pitfall back on the Atari whatever-version-was-the-last-because-back-then-they-released-new-updates-via-new-consoles-instead-of-patches. I believe that's how it started and how I got hooked(on hamburgers and jumping over gaping holes).
As most young gamers, Nintendo was the be all, end all of console gaming(until the GameCube happened, zing!) so that is where I got my real start, with the NES. I played the shit outta my NES, SNES, etc. Then Sega Genesis/PlayStation1 happened and I was 2cool4school to get one(read: mommy wouldn't buy them for me) so I skipped a generation or two until the N64 and I've bought every console since that generation.
Around 1998, my friend introduced me to PC Gaming and Half-Life(this is when he went from just a regular-friend to BFF)! Team Fortress Classic, Counter-Strike, Science & Industry, FireArms, so many a good times were had. Until 2005 when my PC became obsolete and couldn't run anything that wasn't running on a modified Quake1 engine.
So I bought a 360 and haven't gone back to PC gaming since. Not for lack of wanting, I just don't have the time/cash to invest in a whole new rig because I know I would want top-o-the-line parts.
I also bought a Wii and PS3(Slim) at launch!
As far as my name goes: When I first played Half-Life online, I needed a username and at the time I was kind of into Rammstein/Germany. Fast forward to 2010 and while I may not be into Rammstein as much, I've kept the name. Why? I am strongly opposed to the type of person who changes usernames on a whim. I made a decision, and I am going to stick with it! I'd rather be stuck with a less-than-desirable name than to be seen as fickle. That should clear things up for the "lol u liek rammstein so ur opinion means nothing" trolls.
Well, damn, there's no room left for the 'About Me' part! Oh, well, not that interesting anyways. I'm just a dude who likes games. A ton. It's my favorite hobby, so I've invested a few thousand dollars in hardware/software because of it.
I'm on Twitter. Hit me up, I spend a lot of time on it and I'll talk about mostly anything.
