I've been a gamer since owning a Commodore 64 (favourite games: Operation Wolf / Batman The Movie / The Untouchables / Barbarian 2) in the mid-eighties. Since then I've owned a Sega Master system, Amiga 600, N64, PC, PS2 and now I own a PS3.
I'm a strong believer in getting games their rightful recognition as a respectable artistic medium and get very angry with critisism of games based on moralistic or social grounds from people who have no interest in games and have never invested any time in getting to know the subject they're so keen on berating (Anne Diamond - I'm talking to you!).
As a dad in my thirties and in full-time employment, I don't get massive amounts of time to play, but I usually manage a good few hours a week.
My favourite games of all time so far are Batman: Arkham Asylum, Heavy Rain, L.A Noire, Hitman: Blood Money, Goldeneye (N64), Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood & Left4Dead 2 (PC).
