From the early days of gaming when about 10 pixels squirmed around in bland black backgrounds to today’s “triple-A” graphics and storytelling that often surpasses that of Hollywood films, games have been a great means for me to let off some steam, relax, think and challenge myself.

I am a self-admitted Nintendo fan since the Game Boy – SNES era and grew up with games the likes of Zelda, Super Mario, Star Fox and Metroid.

I have a great love for role playing games, platformers and indie games that give you that “old-school” feeling. Nowadays I am getting on board with the idea of online multiplayer but story and tight controls are what will always define a good game for me.
