A jab at gaming – with love

I am a Wisconsin native, currently living in Central Valley of California after having spent 6 years in Gainesville, FL for Grad school. I am engaged to a fantastic girl who tolerates my gaming habit, and will even play along if the option is there. I work a 7-5 job that I’m often at for hours at a time on the weekends, so gaming is my major outlet for stress reduction and I have been known to get cranky when I haven’t played for a while. Video games were not allowed in my house growing up, so I personally refer to my current habit as “Childhood-gaming-denial Rehabilitation.” I love any game that has the ability to draw you in and make you feel like you’re transported away from your everyday life, even if just for an hour. FPS and role playing games (particularily with good leveling systems) are my favorites, but I’m usually willing to try anything. I am a PS3 Trohpy whore and at times, an OCD-driven game completist.

Currently Playing:  BioShock 2

Favorite Games:  Fallout 3: GOTY Edition, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Rock Band (Proud ION drum kit owner), Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, BioShock, and Metal Gear Solid 4
