I've been gaming ever since I can remember. My first system was my fathers NES that he bought before I was born and the first game I had ever played was Super Mario Bros. 2.
Fast forward 20 years and here I am now, your typical (or not so typical) bespectacled gaming geek.
Video games have played a huge role in my life. I've always loved going to buddies houses to play multiplayer games, not paying attention in class by doodling characters from the most recent game I played, and writing/talking about my most favorite form of digital entertainment. I have never been able to say this and that is my favorite genre, in fact I love them all. However, I can easily name individual video game favorites. Katamari, God of War 1-2, Uncharted 2, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 1-2, Street Fighter 4, Demon's Souls, and Mass Effect are just a few examples of relatively recent games that stand out to me.
Here's a few quick facts:
I wish there were still Arcades in the USA... well to be fair there still are but not the way they should be. I could go on and on about that subject.
I love everything about comedy (comedians, stupid television etcetc).
I currently go to West Virginia University. I'd like to find a career in the gaming field once I graduate, but it's doubtful what I'll be able to do with a nearly useless degree in history to my name.
