My gaming obsession began when I was given an NES for Christmas a quarter century ago. Spending most of my allowance on either buying or renting games helped expand my horizons and take me on countless adventures even if they were the same ones over and over again. Whatever money was left was spent at my local arcade which was a gathering ground for likeminded kids where we would trade games, duke it out on Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat or just hang out eating tons of junk food. I couldn't have asked for a better childhood. I continue to play games obsessively and when I'm not gaming, I'm either writing or reading about them.
