Normally I don’t do these introductory type posts, but, I really want to try and put my best foot forward in this forum, so let’s give it a shot.
I’ve been gaming for somewhere in the range of 28-30 years. I cannot remember exactly when it started but I got my first console, the NES, the day after I got out of the hospital following a major trauma. My first game was the Super Mario Brothers/Duck Hunt combo cartridge. That began an obsession that has more or less ruled my life since.
My proudest gaming moment was winning the Super Starfox Weekend Competition at my local Walmart. Nintendo sent the winners of the various contests nationwide really cool flight jackets. I’ve never worn mine but somehow managed to damage the inside lining during one of my various moves, but still, it’s something that I’m probably overly proud of and I cherish the memory.
Beside videogames I have a variety of other interests such as NHL hockey, running, pets, professional wrestling, anime, (mainly older shonen series), manga, murder mystery novels targeted towards middle aged women, fantasy novels, and science fiction novels.
My favorite game genres are WRPG, 2D fighters, and platformers, but I’ll play just about anything.
Looking forward to being here more often!
