|About myself:||My name is Guilherme Chirinéa, but you can call me Gui (as in Guinness).|
My first console was, as for many other 80s' boys in Brazil, an Atari 2600. My first computer was a TK-85 (a Sinclair ZX81 clone), bought a couple of years after the Atari. I still own both of them. From the 80s up to 1995, I was primarily a console gamer (from the Atari 2600 to a NES clone and then to the Mega Drive). Things changed when I bought my fist PC in 1995, a then incredibly new Pentium 75MHz with 8MB of RAM. From then on, I endured PC gaming avidly. In 1999, when I first got in touch with the internet, I've acquired the bad habits of emulation and abandonware. I'm one of those gamers who can see beauty in 8-bit graphics.
MobyGames was a natural consequence of my oldies-craving disease. I started contributing to the site late in 2002 (in a shy way), despite of being around earlier. I just became really addicted to contributing after finishing the university (an idle mind is a devil's workshop), and from then on I've been a MobyZombie.
If things continue the way they are now, my epitaph will probably read:
