Not much to say here, other then the fact that I love video games ( my main form of entertainment) and that I love practically every genre aside from Sports, Racing and typical licensed games ( movie shovelwear). I grew up in the late 80's and just barely dabbled with Nes and the Snes Despite not owning either console, I remember playing the hell out of Donkey Kong Country, Jurassic Park, Metroid and Mega Man at my friend's or cousin's house. I also spent time in the arcade during the 90's. Street Fighter 2, Aliens VS Predator (beat em up), Galaga, House of the Dead and Gauntlet where the most fantastical arcade experiences ever.
The first gaming device I was able to own & given be my parents was the Gameboy in the slimmer model. I played the hell out of that whenever I wasn't outside with friends or at school. The first gaming console I owned was the first Playstation, this is where I truly saw the potential & understanding of video games. This is where I saw them as more then a 15-25 minute form of entertainment. The immersion & powerful story telling, characters as well as the gameplay itself, was truly amazing. While growing up I also got into card and table top games heavily, most notably were Magic: The Gathering and Warhammer & Warhammer 40k( WAAAGH!!!) and eventually D&D campaigns. While I never mastered or became super good at these games, I really enjoyed the mechanics, the lore, artwork and designs of these games ( and still do today!) I have always been a fan & rooted for the "Evil" side of media ( games, table top, movies, books, anime etc) always felt that they were the underdogs given how often the good guys are generally the ones to come out on top, not to mention "Evil" is given more room for the imagination and have amazing designs ^ -^.
Reading has also been a strong point of my childhood, growing up with reading Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings, Goosebumps, Animorphs and tons of other books that escape my mind atm. I think I was one of the very few who really enjoyed reading while others were more into sports and such. over the years I've come to love & enjoy the works of H.P. Lovercraft, Clive Barker, Ayn Rand and Dead Koontz.
