Hello! My name is Adam Johnson and I am a District Underwriter for the Georgia Farm Bureau mutual & casualty insurance company. I know, I know. I'm off to a thrilling start. My introduction to games began with a trip to my cousin's house that resulted in me coming into contact with an Atari 2600. I was a fan, but my family was broke. Luckily, a friend of my family's sold their Nintendo Entertainment System to my parent's to give to us for Christmas. I was the happiest boy in the trailer park! From then on, Christmas and birthday revolved around video games. My parent's allowed me to combine what I would get for Christmas and birthday so that I could get a new system and a game as long as that was no more than 150 bucks. They gave me all they could and they were great! I cried as a kid when I got my first Sega Genesis for Christmas along with Mortal Kombat (the reason I got a Genesis and not SNES...ABACABB, baby!) and Street Fighter II Championship Edition and just as my dad got it hooked up the power went out. I wept like a girl that gets beat up by other girls for being too much of a girl.
But games and the video game industry in general has been a hobby of mine ever since. I fancy myself as a writer, although not a good one. Video game journalism has been a dream of mine for a while and hopefully you'll take the time to read some of my blogs when I get around to posting them. I'll update this better later on, but I need to move on. Nice to be a part of the community!
