Born in 1982, I've been playing video games since being handed a Colecovision controller in my parents living room later that same year. Once I figured out that no, it was not a telephone, I was shooting down alien vessels and jumping over barrels. A few years later, when a Nintendo Entertainment System showed up under the Christmas tree, I really became obsessed. That obsession with games never once subsided.
While I have other hobbies, video games were my first love. I still play games ranging from Bronze Age arcade games all the way up to the latest console hits.
