About Me

Having lived in small towns my whole life, video games were never something I was exposed to on a regular basis. I grew up around rodeos (yes, the things with cowboys and horses and manure) and motocross races, so with this in mind it seems a bit unlikely that games would ever become my passion obsession.

Since you’re reading this, you’ve probably figured out that they did!

And with the miracle of the internet, I soon discovered that even if my obsession appeared unhealthy to family and friends, I could always log on to a world just brimming with people as excited about the next big game as I was. Dozens of websites have built up communities of people that eagerly anticipate even the tiniest tidbit of news from the industry, and I’m definitely one of those people. I love reading about video games, but I love writing about them even more.

For now, blogging on this site lets me express my opinions on games and the state of the industry in any creative fashion that I want, while giving me a good outlet to improve my writing abilities and simultaneously stay close-knit with the happenings of the industry.

Games that have impacted me:
