do you remember the first game you ever played?
how did it make you feel? did it shape you in any way?
i was introduced to the pc at a very young age. i can remember acing the magic school bus space game
i was hooked right then and there
next my brother, my sister and I got a N64 one Christmas. from here i feel like my life was shaped. being 3 years younger than my brother and 4 than my sister, i would always be struggling in sibling competitions solely from the age disadvantage. that was until split screen gaming. i was unbeatable in diddy kong racing, they refused to play me in 007 goldeneye, they were astonished by my progress in banjo and kazooie. they were beat on all fronts. video games was where i had them
then after going to school and being able to compete against my classmates and friends was a whole new world. i defined my skills across all genre’s and had the time of my life doing so
i can remember playing the RTS PC game “Seven Kingdoms” to help learn to read
i feel like all of this background in my youth is what gives me such a strong connection with games today
