“I'm an American soldier. I like Occidental role-playing games, which I have been enjoying since Ultima, The Bard's Tale, and Eye of the Beholder. My favorite genre of game is the shooter, which I have loved since the first time I played Doom in 1994. I'm in the military, and I like shooters. Imagine that. It's been pretty awesome seeing games go from a geeky past-time into the mainstream entertainment medium they are today.
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.
