    Playing games on the computer has always been part of my life, since I was 7 years I think.
    I've started playing games with my sister (we're 1 year apart), gaming was our adventure together I think. We never stucked too long on 1 game, we always searched for others. But my sister was the most active of the two of us, and I believe she was the first one who discovered gaming and slowly brought me in that world too. (She is 1 year younger then me.)
    I don't like playing games with violence/battling/fighting/destroying monsters

    When I was still 4 years old, my dad and his technician taught me how to use the computer. And it all began there. hahaha! C&C baby!

    My first computer was an Amstrad CPC464, then I got a NES and later a PC. One of the first games that I remember playing was Ghostbusters. But Super Mario Bros is way much more fun.

    Well my mother told me I was playing Super Mario Bros (1985) when I was 2 years old. So I was playing games before I could talk. They were in the household and so I played them. Super Mario Kart, Sonic, and Donkey Kong Country 1 & 2 really won my heart. Made me a gamer for life. I hope.

    When I was a kid, back when a Crewman 1st class basically made minimum wage, whenever my dad wasn't on deployment, he was delivering pizzas for Dominos. About two or so times a month, that would coincide with my mom and my sister's late shifts, so he would take me along. The owner was this nice old guy who would unlock the door on the space invaders machine and lend me a nickel, and I would play away the night until my dad's shift was over. That's when I got started. We later had the Atari 2600 with space invaders. Then we upgraded to a Nintendo Entertainment System Action Pack, you know the one with Super Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt on the same cartridge, and that silly light gun everybody just pressed up against the TV. I still have the darn thing somewhere, and last I checked, about 1-1/2 years ago, it still works. I played the living daylights out of that thing.

    Games are a fundamental part of my personality. I didn't necessarily have much money (the first N64 I got didn't even have a controller, power plug or TV adapter), so gaming was something I cherished when I had the opportunity, and I usually played my games several dozen times through. As such, I've learned to appreciate games, even bad games, for the works of art that they are.
