I have been playing games since I was about 4 years old. I started out on the NES and the Super Nintendo. Years later I acquired an N64 followed by a Gamecube about 1 to 2 years later. I also have a Nintendo Wii, X-Box 360, and a Playstation 1.
The game that got me captivated to the world of gaming was The Legend of Dragoon for the Playstation 1 back in about 2000. Not only that, but I became fascinated by the genre of RPGs due to the amount of story telling that goes into any good RPG. However, since it has always taken a long time to release good RPGs, I have played other genres of games such as Adventure, Strategy, First Person Shooter, Horror, Party, Movie Games, Fighting, Platformers, Sandbox, Flight Simulators, and the list goes on and on.
Specific games that I have played that stick out in my mind include: Donkey Kong Country, Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, Assassin's Creed and Assassin's Creed 2, Mirror's Edge, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Baten Kaitos, Baten Kaitos: Origins, Tales of Symphonia, Tales of Vesperia, Legend of the Dragoon, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Lord of the Rings: The Third Age, Brutal Legend, Custom Robo, Evolution Worlds, Skies of Arcadia: Legends, Crash Bandicoot, Star Ocean, Most of the old Mario Games, Darius Twin, Strike Gunner, Star Fox 64, and many more that I am having a hard time remembering.
At about the time that I started high school, I decided that I wanted to start making video games. As the years went by and I worked on games such as my 10 part series, I realized how much work has to go into making a good, quality game. However, I have found that I enjoy every minute of the work that I put into my games, and feel a sense of accomplishment that I have never felt before in my entire life when I finish a project. So now I have completed my undergraduate studies in Computational Media at the Georgia Institute of Technology and now I am pursuing a Masters Degree in Digital Media from Georgia Tech. And while getting a degree from Georgia Tech is very hard work that takes its toll on the students, it is my passion for video games that has allowed me to persevere and strive to be the best that I can be.
