Gaming is an intense passion of mine, among other things....
Started gaming with the Sega Genesis, saving weekly allowances of 5 buckareenos to purchase new games. Really enjoyed the Alladin game, World of Illusion with Mickey Mouse & Donald Duck, FIFA, NBA Jam, & the Mortal Kombat series. Got into PC gaming, playing such titles as Kings Quest IV, Warcraft 2, Starcraft, Command & Conquer Red Alert 2, Diablo, Duke Nukem, & Serious Sam. I then proceeded to work my way up to a Nintendo 64 then Playstation and was blown away! Such stellar games like Zelda Ocarina of Time & Majora's Mask, Donkey Kong, Banjo & Kazooie, Goldeneye for 64 & Final Fantasy IX, Brave Fencer Musashi, The Tenchu Series, Lunar Silver Star Story, MGS, Silent Hill for the PS! Then mustered up the moola again for a PS2 which didn't seem to play DVD's all that well for me but had phenomenal games such as the original NBA Street, SSX, Final Fantasy X, Shadow of Colossus, God of War. Bought a PS3 along with an HDTV after saving for a year to travel to Europe. Thought I would buy that stuff before I returned with no money! Quite underwhelmed at first but then FIFA 08 came out which was unreal. Also bought the under appreciated Warhawk which also started to warm me up to this generation of consoles. Dead Space really intrigued me and gave me hope for the Survival Horror genre in this generation as well, although it seems to need some new life injected into it instead of all this action! PS3 broke in 2010 so decided to try out Xbox 360 and was thoroughly impressed! Mass Effect was alot of fun, Alan Wake too. Supermeatboy made me glad that games can still challenging and not hold your hand so much!
Enjoy reading sci-fi, Tolkien-esque fantasy ala Game of Thrones, & documentary novels. Exercising, playing soccer, dancing are also hobbies of mine.
