As I grew older, I graduated and moved onto Duke Nukem 3D and Grand Theft Auto — the 2D version was epic,” he says. “My friends and I would tie up the house phone line blasting at one another via 9600 baud modems and having to reconnect when someone would bust through because of call waiting.” Frustrating!

… this was the beginning of the end, people. NES, Super NES, N64, Playstation, Xbox, Playstation 2, Xbox 360 and Kinect, Wii, Playstation 3 and of course my trusty PC” were just the beginning. Later he headed to online gaming via “Halflife TD, CounterStrike, Day of Defeat,  Unreal Tournament … I play on all platforms, all types of modes and I love sharing the experience with noobs and l33t players, too.
