ComputerSnacks. I've been gaming since my dad got me a Commodore 64 when I was about 4 years old. I fondly remember Zaxxon and Dr. J vs Larry Bird.
From there, I developed into a young Nintendo fanboy, starting with NES, graduating to the SNES and then a Nintendo 64.
After Square made the jump to PSX, I followed and learned that Nintendo isn't the only company capable of making quality games hardware. Since then, I've owned a PS2, Dreamcast, Xbox360, Gamecube and Wii.
I've never been much of a competitive gamer, I enjoy story-driven games and co-op more than smashing each other to bits. Growing up a military kid made me more prone to playing single-player games. That said, I do enjoy multiplayer games, I just kinda suck in comparison to the elite players out there.
Sadly, I don't play as much as I used to, but still love to follow the scene and keep up with what's going on in the gaming world. Every so often, I'll find a game that sucks me in (like Borderlands and Limbo) and reminds me why I love gaming so much.
