Gaming started at a young age for Tim Repasky. The first console he owned was a NES, which he received for his birthday right after Kindergarten. His older cousins can be credited with exposing him to games before this time however and they continued to do so with new experiences as he grew up. Tim learned to love the classics early on with titles such as Super Mario, Contra, and Zelda (which would later turn into his favorite series).
After a few years full of wonderful 8-bit experiences, Tim would then move to consoles such as the Nintendo 64 and Playstation. He somehow bypassed the 16-bit era, which is a big pile of shame on his gaming experience that he is still uncomfortable with to this day.
The next major breakthrough in Mr. Repasky's gaming habits came when he received a Gamecube for Christmas one year. He ended up with a pretty decent library of GCN titles and many still stand among his all time favorites.
As far as current generation consoles go (even though the "current generation" is starting to transition), Timothy Repasky's preferred gaming device is his Xbox 360. He has appreciation for the Wii and will always remain a loyal fan of the Big N and it's games, but he definitely spends the most time with Microsoft's gaming machine.
Tim also does a little PC gaming and attributes much of this to Valve's incredible Steam service.
Mr. Repasky is pretty well-rounded when it comes to what kinds of games he plays but his favorite genre is probably FPS. His favorite series is once again The Legend of Zelda series, with his favorite game of all time being Ocarina of Time. Another game he deeply loves is Final Fantasy IX. Guitar Hero and Rock Band also play a big part in his gaming habits. Many say the music/rhythm genre was "just a fad" but they are still regularly enjoyed by Timothy. Whether it's the guitar or drums he still finds great charm and enjoyment in the plastic instruments.
Lastly, Timothy Repasky loves the industry. He has subscribed to GameInformer since he was twelve years old and really has a deep admiration for all things games.
