About Me

Life long gamer, based in South East England, with a young family which keeps me busy when not playing videogames. I’ve been playing games since a very early age when I got a Atari 2600 for my birthday in the mid eighties.

I have owned numerous consoles including: Sega Mega Drive, Sega Game Gear, Atari 2600, Amiga CD32, Sony PlayStations (1,2,3 & 4), Sony PlayStation Portable, Sony PlayStation Vita, Microsoft Xboxes (OG,360 and One/X), NEC PC Engine, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, various Nintendo Handhelds (GB, GBA, DS, DSi, 3DS and n3DS) and a Panasonic 3DO. For computers I’ve owned various PCs since 1996 and used to have Commodore Amiga before that (A500, A600HD and A1200). We also had a Amstrad CPC 464 when I was very young.

So my collection of videogames have grown and shrunk over the years. Although following some recent downsizing I currently have a small videogame collection of just over 150 physical games mostly for Nintendo machines (GameBoy, DS/DSi, 3DS, Wii and Wii U) with a few games for the Microsoft Xbox and Sony Playstation consoles. On the different digital platforms I have access to loads more games. At the time of writing, July 2018, it’s 549 games on Steam alone. Discounting physical games, it is somewhere in the region of 870 videogames.
