I play a lot of games. Like, a lot. Probably more than you, or anyone you know. Some might say I have an addiction. I did in the past, for sure. These days, I try to monetize that addiction, especially since my primary source of income has dried up due to current plagues and so forth.
I mostly play on PC, but I also have nearly every Nintendo console ever made, aside from the Virtual Boy and Wii U. I recently built a new gaming rig, and even got a hold of a spanky 3080.
I am the super nerd.
I have over 700 games in my Steam library, and that grows by 5-10 games per month, quite regularly. I have over 30 games for my Switch, as well.
I put many thousands of hours into EVE back in its early days, ran the biggest guild on Lucius in the early days of ArcheAge, did a lot of warring in Black Desert Online, but I haven’t really played an MMO in years now. I cut my teeth on Ultima Online and Diablo II in my teens.
These days, I push the boundaries of relevancy as an “elder” millennial in his mid 30s. Since I was born the year the NES was released, I have a superstitious belief that it has some meaning to my interest in gaming. I know it doesn’t, but I like believing it anyway.
Either way, it’s safe to say I spend a lot of time gaming, and like talking about it. I am in a lot of developer Discords and am pretty on top of things, and have even been beating some major publications to the punch more recently (brag). But hey, I’m an out-of-work, live-entertainment industry worker with a lot of time on his hands.
