I love playing video games. That about sums me up. To elaborate:
I started playing games around the age of 3 or so, I can't remember how young I was but I distinctly remember playing Asteroids, Missile Command, F1 Pole Position, Space Invaders, and Pac-Man on my parents' Atari 2600. I was born in 1984 so that would put me at 1987, which I guess would make sense.
I got an NES for Christmas in '89 and was basically a die-hard Nintendo fanboy until '99 when I got a Playstation. The Nintendo 64 did horrible things to Nintendo fanboys, I remember when Square announced Final Fantasy 7 was going to be on the Playstation. I wept.
Anyway, I'm still an avid gamer to this day. Here's a basic rundown:
Systems I own: Playstation 2, Gamecube, Nintendo 64, Gameboy Advance SP/Micro, Xbox, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, (PSP 2k soon)
Collection of games: Around 160

Pretty long list...
I'll play just about anything. I'm not attached to any particular genre, though I do love RPGs. And for some reason, I really like games that are excruciatingly difficult. Probably because I grew up with an NES and SNES when you had to be superhuman or have an unnaturally good memory to finish most games.
I loved BioShock just as much as the next guy, but I always have a couple minor little complaints about games that seem to slightly mar the experience. I'm a dick I guess.
Yahtzee however puts me to shame. I agree with everything he says in this post, which doesn't really discredit BioShock at all, he basically just says it "doesn't live up to the hype". And since in the last few weeks leading up to its release this game was touted as "the savior of the human race", it's fairly understandable.
