Video Games - Writer and Editor, Gamer & Food Group Abuser:D
Video games journalist, Editor-in-chief for a video games blog. From Los Angeles California in the USA, I work in the video games, online gaming and E-sports industries. I’m a food fatty, addicted to Mexican food, console and pc gaming, love movies especially action and thriller, I lurk voraciously on Twitch TV, read forums, books and check out video games review websites. I use Norton religiously.
I’m gaming constantly on both consoles and also PC games but these days I’m more of a mouse and keyboard guy, especially for third person shooter games and also RTS. I was a regular at the L.A arcades so I guess arcade games is where the addiction began. I further fuelled it by moving to console games like Sega and Nintendo and I was playing a lot of adventure games and also platform type puzzle games like Sonic or Super Mario bros. Next on the list was dungeon RPG games; typical hero kills monster, dragon kills everyone style and I was just getting into RTS games Like Command & Conquer, StarCraft and a bit of Warcraft. I was always into fighting games so I was hammering the arcade classics like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter 2 on a weekly basis too at this point. You can tell the sickness is deep when I’m still playing MAME versions of older titles by developer/publisher Konami and Capcom, that era of gaming is really special imo. Next we had The Xbox and PlayStation phase and I was introduced to what is now my first love, I played many FPS franchises over the years including Halo, COD and CS etc. I enjoy 2 player co-op but mainly online multiplayer battle mode and squad/team based gameplay. Tried MMO-RPG’s, not a fan. Barley played my Final Fantasy Online account and the same goes for World of Warcraft. I prefer playing different titles with better graphics tbh although strangely I love MOBA’s like LOL and Heroes of the Storm because of the instant action more than the genre or backstory. Atm I’m playing some interactive virtual reality games on a closed beta, really cool titles in the end on PlayStation. It’ll be interesting to see the reviews pre release. I also need help with my Steam and Xbox Live addictions.
