I have a passion for video games, new and old. I regularly follow other gamers on YouTube and various social media, and thought I would throw my hat into the ring. I plan to post a variety of content and see what sticks, if anything.
My love of gaming started as a child in the 80s. I was born too late for the Atari craze, but I have many fond memories of the Nintendo Entertainment System. It seems ludicrous to younger gamers that when I was young, buying a game was a rare treat. I remember that my personal NES library topped out at 9 games total. With my Super Nintendo library only at 12 games, and 5 games for the Sega Genesis by the time I moved on to my first 32 Bit Console. I only got to play a variety of games through rentals or playing with friends.
The same can also be said for my computer gaming experience. My family did not get a computer until I was 10. We got a 133 Mhz, Packard Bell PC with 16MB of RAM and a 1.2 GB hard drive, complete with Windows 95. While this did not offer much with the gaming department I was soon hooked on Doom II, Need for Speed, You Don't Know Jack, and older MS-DOS games.
Since I was first introduced to the Playstation in the summer 1999 I have been hooked on Sony. I have purchased every Playstation after at launch, including the PS4 Pro. However, I really got into retro gaming through emulators while in college. Suddenly every game every released for the NES, SNES, Genesis, GameBoys, and even systems I had never heard of such as the Turbographx 16 and the Sega Master System were at my fingertips. Now I could play all of the games I could not afford and couldn't rent when I was a kid. However, playing on a keyboard was not my cup of tea. So when I got out of college, I started collecting the vintage games and hardware to experience games as they were meant to be.
So far my console collection includes, an Atari 2600, NES, NES 2, SNES, SNES 2, Genesis, Sega CD, 32x, Game Gear, Game Boy (and Color, and Advance), Sega Saturn, PS1, N64, Game Cube, X-box, PS2 (Original and Slim), X-Box 360, PS3, Wii, Wii U, DS, PSP, PS Vita, PS TV, PS4 Pro, and Sega Dreamcast. With a large assortment of games to play through. Many of these I have never played before.
