|About myself:||I've been playing video games since the age of 7, both in the UK seaside arcades and later when I was lucky enough on my first home gaming PC - a Commadore C64.|
As I got older (and remained an only child lol) I was able to get a NES which jumped to a SNES (best Xmas present ever). I then started saving/working to get a Sega Saturn, followed by a Playstation, then a N64 much later all aided byb the power of trading.
Around the time of the UK release of the Dreamcast (1998) I got my first time job and have continued my obsession with gaming ever since always owning a current console.
Now I am 31 years old, and am a branch manager of a well known video games retailer. I have a total of 11 years experiance working in video games retail and still thouroughly enjoy it today.
I love games, gaming and my work and have seen the changing face of the medium over the past 20 years first hand. I very recently (April 2013) started collecting vintage consoles and gaming again, focusing on 8Bit & 16Bit eras to begin with. This will be my 3rd collection (having sold my other 2 - regretablily) of retro gaming. Collecting will hopefully go alongside retro reviewing this time however. .
I hope you enjoy my reviews - which are only ever from my current collection of physical games I own and play on the original consoles also in my current collection.
Thanks for reading.
