Hello Dtoid'rs, my name is Fico, and this is me, and my gaming mind in a nutshell.
I'm 29 years old and for about 95% of my life, I have played video games. My passion for them is something that becomes apparent to anyone that talks to me. I don't spend time psychologically analyzing them and get too worked up like some people, instead I try to enjoy them as much as I can and I remember that they are there to relax, have fun, and enjoy.
I got into video games when I was 5, when my Dad got me my first Nintendo Power, and when I started playing with his Atari 2600 and my very own NES. My brother and I spend hours upon hours that week and the following just sucked into the worlds that video games enriched us with. And while my brother is now an architect and lost interest a long time ago, my passion for them is stronger than ever. My dream job someday is to become a game designer someday, and to make games of my own and give the gift of a game made by myself or at least with a team, the same way hundreds and even thousands of people have been doing it for me for years.
My favorites include Super Mario Bros., The Legend Of Zelda, Metroid, Doom, Duke Nukem 3D, Unreal, Quake, Half-Life, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Wolfstein 3D, Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Street Fighter 2, Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Soul Calibur, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and among a huge amount more that is too big to put on this list. The ones mentioned were all launchpad games that led me to others and many were for the PC which I still hold to heart as my #2 all time favorite gaming platform next to the original NES.
I started even sharing with others on YouTube and got my own blog over at Blogger and someday hope to create my own website reflecting my username, Fico's Gaming Mind.
