“My name is Tom Aitken, usally known as alpha99. I love everything videogames: reading, writing and making websites about games, of course most importantly playing all the games I can manage. Being Canadian I also eat, sleep and breathe hockey; my favorite team is the Vancouver Canucks. I live in Campbell River, BC, Canada and yeah it's cold and rainy here, but what better an excuse to stay inside and play videogames.
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.
