I've been an avid gamer for as long as I can remember myself. Between coin-ops and all kinds of computers, handhelds and game consoles, I've spent thousands of hours playing games. I've been a PC user since 1989 when I acquired my first computer, and I also own a Playstation (broken), a PS2, an Xbox, an Xbox 360, a Nintendo Gamecube and a DS. I play (or used to play) almost anything, but my favourites include RPGs, strategy games (especially TBS) and first person shooters. I've also been playing pen & paper RPGs since 1993. I've been working as a games journalist since October 2003.
