  • Since I never had an account on the GT forums, i think is appropiate do this:

    Name - Pablo
    Located - Chile
    For a living I - Do boardgame demos for a game distributor. Most of the time I study physics though.
    Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - I write reviews on a blog, but they're in spanish.
    Gaming Historical facts - I got into gaming when I was like 11, and haven't stopped since. Played a lot of N64 and Gamecube games when I strated and then got introduced to PC gaming and the marvels of the internet. I think that finding GT in 2013 helped me a lot with getting to know a lot of new games and genres that I wasn't interested in before.
    A few years ago, I used to administrate a gaming forum, go to events and organize tournaments. Now I'm happy with just being a normal user :p
    Firm believer that - Videogames are the artform of the 21st century.

  • Everything that I want to share at this time is in my profile.

  • Name: Caleb
    Located: Spring Hill, FL (USA)
    For a living I work at a local hospital while attempting to manage course work for my BS.
    Non-gaming Hobby(ies): Reading. Mostly literary classics. I enjoy writing, as well. And I collect vinyls of '80s rock albums like Appetite for Destruction and Pyromania.
    Gaming Historical facts: Played my fair share of PlayStation classics and even some 16-bit titles when I was very young. First console I owned was a PS2 when I was 8. I have owned each succeeding PlayStation and XBox console. Haven't owned one from Nintendo though (hopefully the NX will be my first). Fell in love with franchises like Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, Jak & Daxter, Mass Effect, and Elder Scrolls (to name a few). Got into PC gaming a few years ago. My library is now pretty evenly-split between my PC and my PS4. Haven't seen a reason to get an XBox One yet. My personal greatest games of all time are Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 9, and Final Fantasy 6 (in that order).
    I am a firm believer that a video game can enthrall you into a world, cause you to fall in love with a character, or take you on a journey of mystery and discovery far more effectively than a novel or film ever could. Also, games are not only used for escapism. You can actually learn a surprising amount about yourself from a game.
    Champion of: MGS3 multiplayer. Only one that I really got into. For some reason my brain could understand the horrible control scheme. Still miss it, though.
