There are a lot of things you think about as a gamer, the main thing being games! I have been playing games ever since I got my brothers second hand Sega Master system playing classics like Alex Kidd and Shinobi.
It took me awhile to get my next console, a PlayStation 1 for Christmas was the next installment in my gaming life with tomb raider 1+2 and World cup 98, the amount of time I used to play that game and get matches abandoned for having to many players sent off was amazing I think I loved that more than actually playing football on it!
I think as an 8 year old child Tomb raider was a bit hard for me, I used to spend most of my time getting Lara to do handstands as she vaulted up rock walls and shooting hundreds of clips at enemies that only needed a few shots to kill them.
There where many games that followed playing such classics (in my eyes) as Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the dragon as well as Tekken 2 these are such fond memories of mine whenever I see one of these games in a shop it takes me right back to my childhood.
Then as I got a bit older I was introduced to Final Fantasy 7 by my brother and I was instantly in love, Final fantasy 7 was one of the first games I ever played the hell out of yet I dont remember a lot of the storyline.
After I was shown this game I would spend my time trawling trough boot sales to find others in the series little known to me that there where only two others (that Im aware of) at the time. It took me awhile but I eventually found Final Fantasy 8 another game even though I loved I dont remember much about, as a young kid I didnt really play through the story I would just fight and fight for hours on end.
A year or so later I found Final Fantasy 9, to this day this is probably my favorite game of all time even though many dont see it as one of the best Final Fantasy, games I have always loved it maybe it was because the main character had a tail or maybe it was just Vivi. But there was something in that game that has kept me loving it in to my early twenties.
A few years later and another Christmas present was received and this was the Silver PlayStation 2, I got Simpsons skateboarding, this kept me entertained for a few hours on Christmas day and Boxing day then I went out and bought myself a few games one being Final Fantasy 10 this is another game I have loved since I bought it and the story always kept me wanting to play more.
Once I started getting older and being able to afford my own games I bought myself a Gamecube and Zelda Windwaker, this game was truly amazing and it was the first time I had played a Nintendo Console apart from the Gameboy which I had being playing since the Original Gameboy (Which I also picked up from my brother).
I was amazed by the different play style the controller introduced and the way the discs where half the size of the PS2 disks, About a year or so later I bought myself an Xbox as I had heard a lot about a little game called Halo and wanted to see what all the fuss was about, Im still a big fan of the halo games even thought I'm not all that good at them and ever since then I have played Xbox over PlayStation.
Now an owner of an Xbox360 and playing the new call of duty every time it comes out as well as the yearly Fifa installment, I fancied something different and so I bought a gaming PC, I now play games as varied as Diablo and Guild wars 2 to that of Day Z and Minecraft. It amazes me the difference between console gaming and PC gaming and the way mods can add to the experience if it wasn't for mods Day Z would not exist and it amazes me that people can make such great games so easily.
I must say in the last year or two I have been converted to a PC gamer and I am proud to say that!
I hope this kept you interested and I would love to hear what you think of my writing I know my spelling and punctuation isn't the best but I try! :D
