“I'm 18 years old, and I've been a gamer for 15 years. My all-time favorite genres are fighters, turn-based strategy and RPGs (particularly 90s JRPGs). Games/franchises that I love to death: Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger/Cross, Dark Souls, Metroid Prime, and Zelda, to name a few. Funnily enough, despite my affinity for turn based strategy and 90s JRPGs, I feel that games should be designed for game play first and story second.
Games are more important than paying for food or paying the bills. The serious collector has made a lifelong investment in the pursuit of having way more games than you do. Ignoring review scores, maintaining few friendships so as not to commit oneself to additional spending on birthdays or holidays, this individual is single-mindedly intent on owning lots and lots of games. A noble pursuit, indeed.
