I'm an Iranian gamer. I live in Iran. I think it's a shithole but hey, what can I do about it? Nothing yet, apparently.
Also, like many others my sole dream in this universe is to one day be a game designer and/or work with the people who develop and produce video games for gamers to enjoy.
I started gaming when I was about 8 with an ATARI 2600 (although I do remember having a couple of those black and white handheld systems before that. No not Gameboys.) I'm 25 now.
My Favorite game of all time is Grim Fandango.
