"Hello World!" Those are the first words I learned to program and little did I know the journey it would take me on. Two years of college and three years of dreaming in high school, I always thought that I would be a video game programmer. Now I am in my sixth semester standing and those dreams ended in my fourth semester when I finally accepted that I was no good at programming or calculus, so computer science was not the major for me. So I had to take the summer after my fourth semester to find out what I was good at and I came up with two things: writing and video games. The first I always found entertaining and in school excelled at without really trying. As for the second, well, they have been my whole life.
I was about three or four when I had a run in with my first video game console; the Sega Genesis. It was a Christmas present to my brother and I. It opened a world that I never dreamed could exist; I played games throughout my entire childhood, my family always made jokes about me playing games and that I was addicted. They may have been right, but as I grew up I obtained an appreciation for almost any game out there. I saw beauty and creativity everywhere, so much so that now here I am writing in a blog on website of whose magazine issues I eagerly awaited whenever I had the money to subscribe (or in the case of when I was younger my parents would get for me). I used to just love to look at the pictures of the games that were coming out and never really read the articles. Yet, as I grew older I started reading the articles of games that were coming out that I wanted to play, or reviews of games that I bought to see what critics thought. Nowadays I take my time with each issue and see what games are coming out for each system, what people are saying, what the critics think, and how each game could influence the world. It is to the point that I want to try and write for the hobby that basically gave my life meaning. I want to try and become a critic of any magazine or website that would pay me, but as of right now my end goal is to try and create my own stories for video games. To write the stories for the next generation of gamers so that they may be inspired as I was when I was a child growing up with video games. My dreams have and always will lie with video games.
I apologize for the lengthy bio, but that is just another think about me. I can be a little wordy, but I try and always focus on the topic and not go off into rants thank you for your time if you managed to stick around to read the whole thing.
