I began lurking on AtariAge in 2006 and in February 2014 decided to properly join the community. I was born in 1969, began videogaming in 1975, and grew up during the golden age of video games. I've been a gamer ever since, through Atari, Intellivision, Nintendo, PlayStation and Steam.
My interest in video games is broad: software & hardware, programming & design, art & advertising, writing & mythologizing, sound & music, history & culture... all these aspects and more are subjects that intrigue and inspire me.
I am particularly fascinated with certain adventure games (and action games or puzzle games with medieval, mythological or science-fiction motifs) from various periods:
► Adventure ● Atari ● Atari 2600
► Haunted House ● Atari ● Atari 2600
► Mountain King ● CBS ● Atari 2600
► Riddle of the Sphinx ● Imagic ● Atari 2600
► Crown of Kings ● Mattel ● Intellivision
► Treasure of Tarmin ● Mattel ● Intellivision
► Thunder Castle ● INTV ● Intellivision
► Tower of Doom ● INTV ● Intellivision
► Swords & Serpents ● Imagic ● Intellivision
► Ice Trek ● Imagic ● Intellivision
► Dracula ● Imagic ● Intellivision
► Heaven & Earth ● Buena Vista ● DOS
► Portal: A Dataspace Retrieval ● Activision ● DOS
► Shadowrun ● Data East ● SNES
► MediEvil ● Sony ● Playstation
► Lode Runner: The Legend Returns ● Natsume ● Playstation
► Shadowrun Returns ● Harebrained Schemes ● Steam
► Primordia ● Wadjet Eye Games ● Steam
These games appeal to me because of their play value, storytelling, affects on player psychology, imagery, challenging puzzles and their tendency to provoke my curiosity and creativity. Even the simplest of these games have inspired me to dive deeply into their worlds and consequently learn more about coding, cartography, history, mythology, music, philosophy, language, magic, demonology, ludology, enigmatology, mathematics and many more ideas and concepts.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy gaming to you!
