I've been in the video game industry since 1995, working with such companies as Midway Home Entertainment, MacPlay, MumboJumbo, Sony Online Entertainment, TKO Software and SCEA. I won't talk about projects I'm currently working on, but I'm always glad to talk about classic gaming.
The companies I have the most respect for creatively (as a gamer) are Nintendo, Sega, Capcom, Konami, Activision, Square-Enix, Namco and Lucasarts.
My favorite game series are: Castlevania, Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Phantasy Star, Metroid and Dance Dance Revolution. I also love classic '80's arcade titles (Marble Madness, Robotron: 2084, Galaga), and have an extremely soft spot (and natural talent) for Ms. Pac-Man.
