I have fond memories playing games like TimeSplitters 2, Burnout 3, and Halo with my friends. Nowadays though I don’t play many games online, with the exception of the original Destiny a couple years back. Lately I’ve fallen in love with my Switch with games like Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, and Stardew Valley.
I’ve got love for all games from all genres, and generally regard most titles as labors of love from their creators. You’ll see me grant more leniency towards titles that others pan, but I try to do so in a way that’s balanced – e.g. I’ll still tell you not to buy it if it blows. I’m a huge scaredy cat, but have a deep love for Horror games, space adventures, flight sims, and exploration games.
Games have been a part of my life for longer than I can remember, and, like the sweet embrace of a familiar lover, I fall back into their pull like waves breaking on the shore. My life with games was inevitable, and now I spend part of my time with them bringing that passion back to you all, in a curse-filled swirling shit storm that is my voice via podcast and articles here at Pixelrater. A/S/L? You wish homeboy.
Gimme a game with a great story, a crazy upgrade/crafting tree, or incredible visuals and I’ll be happy. All time faves include Spyro the Dragon, SMT: Nocturne, Pokemon, Majora’s Mask, Tony Hawk’s Underground 2, Rocket Knight Adventures, Bioshock, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Overwatch.
