About HeSaNaone of us since 7:56 PM on 10.01.2011
I spent much of my childhood in the hospital where the kind nurses oh so casually brainwashed my young mind into loving video games. Not that I was entirely unwilling. Video games let me do things I couldn't really do in real life due to physical disabilities.
Games have become my avenue of escapism. Like books, gaming sends me into new worlds. I begun gaming on the NES with a focus on beat'em up's like Ninja Gaiden, Double Dragon, and Battletoads. I moved to the SNES and my tastes expanded. I discovered the wonders of the JRPG and gaming showed me how compelling it could be. The N64 brought my friends in on the action with wonders such as Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and Rush 2049.
I started paying attention to developers as Rare was creating many experiences that I enjoyed. Then came Sony's Playstation and Squaresoft enticed me over with their impressive library; Final Fantasy, Legend of Mana, Front Mission 3, Parasite Eve, and more.
The PS2 primarily scratched my singleplayer itch and Xbox continued the local multiplayer tradition my friends and I held dear. However, I did miss out on many Gamecube experiences.
I know primarily game on the Xbox 360 and my wife, my daughter, and I enjoy some light Wii time as well. The DS and PSP has opened my family to handheld gaming which has been a blast. I never did get into PC gaming as I never really had a computer to call my own. I don't really look towards the PC for my gaming needs but I've been slowly seeing what it has to offer.
Wow, that's way more than enough, like anyone's still reading by now. If you are, thanks and take care.
