Let me preface this by first saying that this is a work of fiction based on a true story. Any and all events recorded here are for posterity's sake and should not be taken at face value. Thank you.

The year was 20XX, and I had just graduated from college. A friend of mine was restarting a hobby shop and asked if I wanted to help. Having nothing else better to do, I agreed and started working for free as the business grew. The hours were long, and as I spend more and more time at work, it just made sense to just stay there overnight instead of going home. With no income, rent got harder to pay each month, so eventually, I packed my things and moved them all into the shop, beginning my three year stint as a homeless gamer.

I have shared this story with a few friends and they encouraged me to write it down, so here it all goes. Most of what will be here are anecdotes of that three year period of my life as well as observations about the games I played and beat during that time. I am trying to write all this down while it is still fresh in my mind, but on occasion, I might mix up the timeline with some events from the present too.

It'll be a long journey, so I hope you enjoy the ride.
