It began with a Colecovision and a string of second-hand Nintendo Entertainment Systems, and I haven’t looked back. I’m an avid gamer, but with a background in film and video production, I put particular importance on story and atmosphere in the videogames I play. As a result, I find myself gravitating to adventure or horror titles that give a convincing sense of place, and I am less interested in shooters and button mashers.
I also love unusual and experimental games (Zen Bound, Endless Ocean, Puzzle Quest) that you might scoff at hearing an explanation of. I treasure these new and creative gaming experiences far more than the rehearsed adrenaline of an average AAA blockbuster title.
Most of all, however, I’m open to anything unique and fun.
