I have played video games since I was a little child. I've had just about every system there is. Video games are such a special part of my life and I'm glad I can finally share that with you on here! My biggest influencers and my favorite series that have gotten me through my life are, The Legend of Zelda, Halo, Red Dead Redemption and many more games. My favorite game of all time is the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I love just about all game types and most games, I am very open minded. My first game I ever played was Super Mario Bros on the NES. First game bought for me was The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. If I am not busy with college or work, etc, I am playing my games. I have cosplayed many characters over the years and that is also a very fun thing I love to do. I have made fan films for several games and even some short films that contain original game content. I love to make films, so a big part of my gaming life also includes films. I plan on making a Skyrim based fan film someday soon, as well as Fallout. I have a thing for collectors editions, so you will see many video game statues in my house. I also have a lot of merchandise in general, action figures, comics, posters and so on. I feel like video games are a great escape from reality, but I also think they are a fun reality in their own respect as well! Games are a way to keep laughs in your life, excitement, fun with friends and so much more! I am currently working on a video game show on YouTube, you can follow if you'd like - Apex Studios - (channel) Show is called VGT - Video Game Talks.
All this and more is how I became a gamer and my life as a gamer. Maybe someday I'll do some sort of documentary, until then, this is my gamers tale.
