I am a video gamer because I grew up with the NES and would like to see systems evolve with what we have now and to also learn the successes and failures of each individual console or device. That way, I may become informative of how the gaming industy works.

Grew up with games from the Atari 2600 to now. Have gotten away from it, but always seem to come back at some point.

In a world where disappointment has made me a cynic about mostly everything, games are the only thing I love.

The same reason I'm the king of backyard BBQ and am constantly being abused by golf courses. I like doing things I enjoy in my spare time.

Because I like being lazy and doing irresponsible things with money.

I'm not too fond of the word 'gamer'. I'm a person who thoroughly enjoys playing video games.

Video-games is an endless and consequence-free way to satisfy my curiosity and love for exploration and experimentation. I just wanna do novel shit all the time.

Because I get bored watching movies or tv-shows, I need something for my hands to do.

So I do like story heavy games, as they feel like movies I can walk around in.

(obviously that's not the only reason, games are also fun on their own merit :)
