Half American, half Brazilian, playing video games since 1980's! My first machine was an Atari 2600 my father gave me as a bday gift when I was 6. It became my favorite hobby. My favorite genre became RPGs after I played my first game of its genre, Chrono Trigger. But my favorite series became Final Fantasy when I played Final Fantasy III (VI) on my SNES.
In the past few years I started playing more different kinds of games since RPGs weren't as strong and cativating as the ones on previous gens, at least for my taste! =P
