Growing up in the suburbs of a very small town in Texas, I never really got the full gaming experience that most other gamers my age did. Heck, for the first 17 years of my life, we had dial-up internet. My first online experiences were Runescape and Halo: CE – on dial-up – so I was very deprived when it came to video games.
I am currently attending Stephen F. Austin State University, where I’m planning to major in journalism. I owe my love for gaming to my roommate, who introduced me to Batman: Arkham City. Arkham City is where I truly fell in love with games and started to appreciate them as art.
When I’m not thinking of my next post or playing a video game, I usually spend my time playing with my yoyo or strumming my guitar or daydreaming about a zombie apocalypse.
As you can tell, I love art of all kinds. Yoyoing is a very lost art, but it’s beautiful none-the-less. Video games are my favorite medium of art. And now and then, I like to enjoy a good play or musical. Art, no matter how it’s presented, is a critical part of life. Without it, life would be meaningless.
