“I have been an avid gamer for a long time. I am a generation-xer all the way. I grew up with games and see no reason to ever stop playing. I just got out of the Army and I am ready to start school. I will major in Theatre and Film and possibly minor in English Literature ( I am a sucker for Shakespeare). But, no matter how hard school becomes, I will always make time for four things; movies, videogames, excersise, and last (but certainly NOT least) women! So, there you have it. That's me in a nut shell.
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.
