Unlike the rest of the TechGeekGamers, I actually started playing video games at a later age. Growing up my parents sheltered me a little haha and it was not until Junior High School that I got my first REAL taste of video game addiction.
My friend had purchased a Playstation when it was still in its earlier years. Not having much experience himself, he asked the guy at our local game corner store (god I miss those, EB Games is close but just not the same!) what he should be with it. What was suggested to him probably changed both our lives…..Final Fantasy 7 and Gran Turismo!! I still remember going over to his place, enthralled, just watching him play through Final Fantasy. And the racing dynamics of Gran Turismo stuck with me also!
I knew I had to have one!! Later that year, for Christmas, I got my first game console in the form of the original Playstation. Ah, that sexy gray frame!! A tear forms in the corner of my eye just thinking about it. Since then I have been an avid Sony follower and own both an original PS2 as well as an original PS3. I actual had a hook up with a guy at the Sony Store that ensured I was on the list to get a PS3 when they came into town!!!
Of course I don’t just limit myself to Playstation! I own an XBox360 for the sheer joy of beaking teenage kids as my friends and I kill them in Call of Duty. I have built my own gaming PC and spent a good chunk of my early adulthood hooked on World of Warcraft…Lvl 60 High Warlord!! For those of you who know what that means, I will accept your congratulations for the time lost to a rediculous grind.
Gaming is a part of me and I only wish to share my love of it for all who care to listen!
