I think of myself as an equal-opportunity gamer. I'll try anything once, and there are no genres or categories I dislike overall. I'll usually pick an unplayed game over one I already like, because I enjoy new experiences. My favorites tend to be low on luck, quick to play, easy to explain, and highly interactive, though a glance at my Top Ten will tell you that none of these are ironclad requirements. For me to want to own a game, it has to be something that I think I'll have a reasonable chance of playing as well as something I enjoy. My Hot Ten are the games I'm most interested in trying.Video Games
I've owned 13 different home consoles over the years, although today I've cut that down to just 1 (plus PC) for simplicity's sake. I'm building a small arcade in my basement; pictures when it happens. I've essentially quit single player gaming and am focusing now on building up a good (not large, but good) catalog to play with my kids when they're old enough. I think 2D games at their best are nearly always better than 3D games. Hot Ten are the games I'm most interested in picking up.I was the 102nd Video Game Geek of the Week!
If you'd like more info on my video game preferences, that and the GeekLists linked from it are probably the best place to find it.Other
I live near Rochester, NY with my wife and 3 kids. I work as a software developer and have finally found a job that allows me to put my skills to use toward my two main passions, nutrition and the environment. My non-gaming hobbies include writing fiction, playing music, making movies, and designing games. I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one who believes.
