“My name is Justin McBride and Iím an alcoholic. Wait, thatís not trueÖ What I really meant to say is Iím a guy who likes to write, play games and write about playing games. Sound lame enough yet? Well, I have other interests as well such as hanging out with friends, watching TV, going to the movies from time to time, surfing the internet, listen to good music, drive at speeds I shouldnít be driving at and so on. The problem is, thatís all stuff everyone likes to do, so why write about it? Oh wait, seems I just did. Oops.
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.
