About Lerzone of us since 4:38 PM on 07.22.2009

Hello! I'm Liz. I am a girl who grew up in a family of boys who all played games, so I grew into gaming naturally from a young age. I am 21 years old, I'm from the Chicago suburbs, and I currently go to college at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am an art, philosophy, and poetry student. I am going to school for studio arts right now, and I am excited to learn about how to create my own games soon, and incorporate my ideas and aspirations as an artist into this new medium.

I grew up playing almost exclusively Nintendo games, and eventually branched out into PC gaming back in the 1990's. For me, gaming has always been about community and family. The reason I began playing games in the first place was because it was a way to relate to my brothers! I love games because of the closeness it establishes between people, and of course the medium's potential for storytelling, exploration, critique, etc.

Some of my favorite games are:

- Final Fantasy 3 (6)
- The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker
- Metroid Prime
- Age of Empires II
- Super Mario RPG
- Earthbound
- Concentration (NES)
- Braid
- Passage
- Cave Story
- Plants Vs. Zombies

(pretty standard list.)

And recently I have been playing:

- Plants Vs. Zombies for iPhone and Mac - which I absolutely love!
- Portal
- Bioshock
