About ErbilTone of us since 6:54 PM on 01.02.2008

I guess I was a hardcore gamer before I knew what hardcore gaming was. I'm a 35 year old lifelong gamer who lives in Campbell, CA with his wife and son. I currently work at an MMO/online gaming company in the Bay Area. I used to post on Destructoid a lot more often than I do now, but I have a lot less free time now that I have a family.
