I'm a college math professor for a technical trade school!
So I'll be checking to see that you did your homework instead of playing your games.
How I Got into Gaming:
I cut my teeth on Pong and Atari 2600 games. My dad would buy them at Goodwill for cheap when I was a kid. I was always a system behind all my friends growing up, but I'm not complaining! With that said, I didn't fall in love with gaming until I played Final Fantasy VI. (The purple FFIII as it was sold to us back in the day for the SNES, and I'm still waiting for my retro re-make!)
I completely missed the Playstation 1 and 2 and all the awesome RPGs because I was in college and didn't play games b/c I was focused on my studies and working to pay for college. After I was settled in my teaching career, I jumped back into gaming at the tail end of the original Xbox. I was overwhelmed by the graphic jump from my old SNES to the Xbox! I think my favorite game on the origianl Xbox was A Bard's Tale. I had a blast playing that game; the goofy songs were the best!
I currently play Xbox 360 and have 28K+ achievements! My plan is to get the Vita and go crazy downloading all the old-school RPGs that are on PSN that I missed out on while I was in college.
What Games I Play:
I love RPGs and Third-person shooters! I am terrible in any game that is FPS, although Borderlands is the exception. I attempted Morrowind one time and my guy got stuck on a rock with the camera angle stuck twirling around up in the air. That's when I pretty much called it quits for any game in the FP perspective.
I don't really care for MMOs; I just can't commit to one game and pay a monthly fee to play it after I've already bought it. I recognize that free-to-play is very popular now, but they just want you to buy the special money to do anything fun.
I subscribe to several game magazines, and I read Internet articles on GI and IGN everday!
