For a living I - am a graduate student
Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - I read a lot, write some, draw a bit, enjoy most other forms of gaming too (board games, tabletop rpgs, miniature wargames).
Gaming Historical facts - My parents actually got me into gaming, they were gamers first. My mother played Shining in the Darkness for her entire pregnancy with me. We were a Sega family until my older brother and I found an NES at a garage sale and then my dad bought us a SNES and later an N64. I have owned every console from a major publisher at some point. I mostly play RPGs but I don't restrict myself by genre.
Firm believer that - Atmosphere is what makes a game.
Champion of - JRPGs! Especially Final Fantasy and Mother.

For a living I - I am a stay at home dad for my 14 month old daughter.
Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - Reading, writing and board games.
Gaming Historical facts - There is more than enough to fill a book, as I have been gaming for over 30 years, with the Atari 2600 being my first console and an Apple IIGS as my first computer. Favorite systems include the Sega Saturn, of which I have a collection that includes, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Dragon Force, Saturn Bomberman, Burning Rangers, Magic Knight Rayearth and soooooo much more. I also love the Sega Dreamcast and Sega CD, as well as everything Nintendo. I am a retro collector, but that does not keep me from loving modern games of the current generation.
Firm believer that - There is no need for negativity on the internet. We find entertainment in being judgemental and harsh towards everyone around us. We should be able to enjoy games with impunity and encourage others to enjoy games. It is alright to not like something, but it is wrong to tell someone they are wrong for liking it. Games are meant to be fun, so treat them as such.
Champion of - Retro game collecting and showing the good in almost every game, even the cheesy FMV games of the 1990's.

Gaming Historical facts - First game I can remember playing is Wolfenstein 3D on PC at the age of about 3, after that I got a Gameboy, right at the time when Pokemon really blew up in Europe. So that became my first real gaming obsession. PS2 era was when I really played alot. Some of my favorite game series back then where Time Splitters, SSX, Final Fantasy, Ratchet and Clank, Kingdom Hearts and Shadow Hearts. I worked for a gaming site during the 360/PS3 era and mostly stopped playing a couple of years ago.

Name: Jack C(haosBahamut) that's all you're getting
Non-gaming hobbies: Browsing the internet, playing with my dog, etc.
Gaming History: Started with the SNES and Super Mario World (which I still have, both in working condition), became a Final Fantasy fan in early-mid 98 with FFVII, and am now mainly a PC gamer who does some console gaming on the side. Also was a mod on the Gametrailers forums (random fun fact that I'm proud of) and have a lot of adbots and troll accounts on my kill list.
Firm believer that: Imagination kills people. (imagination created religion, religion is responsible for a lot of deaths throughout man's history, therefore imagination kills people; granted we can't live without it either so there's a conundrum :3)

Non-gaming hobbies: Making/listening to music, watching series, sometimes movies. I always welcome recommendations to all of them (especially electronic/psychedelic music).
Gaming historical facts: Started playing when I was around 4 years old on a cousin's NES. My first games were Kirby's Adventure and Super Mario Bros 3. Finished Final Fantasy shortly after that, without help and not knowing English. Played TLoZ for a short time but didn't like it much, of course that changed when I played A Link to the Past. Since then I've been hooked to videogames for life.
Firm believer that you should play in every console you can. We have enough coming from outside the gaming community, we shouldn't fight among ourselves.
Love and Respect!
