About Norgorone of us since 4:21 PM on 03.31.2008
I'm an aging gamer (24) with a passion for videogames. I've been playing games ever since my dad brought home an NES way back in 1988. I currently have an XBox 360, a Wii and a Playstation 2 (can't justify buying the PS3 just yet). I'm recently married so I don't get to play videogames for hours on end like I used to. However, I've been moderately successful at getting my wife into gaming so she has a newfound respect for my hobby (thank you Rock Band!).
My long history with gaming has made a huge impact on my life. I designed my first text-based game on my TI-86 graphing calculator during high school math classes. I chose to pursue a Computer Science degree with a focus in programming after reading about the backgrounds of famous videogame designers and programmers. I still dream of working in the videogame industry but, in the meantime, I work on small Flash game projects to keep my programming skills sharp.
I play any videogame I can get my hands on but I prefer to play first-person shooters and role-playing games. I also enjoy playing games with unique game mechanics that bring something new and refreshing to videogames.
Grand Theft Auto 4
Mega Man 9
Rock Band 2: Wii edition
A personal project of mine has been to play the entire core Final Fantasy series from the first through the current generation. In one form or another I own Final Fantasy 1-12 excluding 11 because I'm not a huge fan of MMOs. My current Final Fantasy series status is: Playing Final Fantasy VI
