I’m a gamer and have been a gamer since 1977.
Not many people can say that. I started out writing text based adventure games and sold them at the local computer shops out of plastic sandwich bags. My top seller was “Xanadu,” which wasn’t the Olivia-Newton John/Gene Kelley calamity of a movie but a game based on the Samuel Taylor Coleridge poem Kubla Khan. It was pretty cool and received decent reviews, a sucess at 10 years old, whoodathunk?
My list of favorite games changes several times a year depending on what’s released. Of course there are a few stalwart favorites that I’ll keep playing forever but I’m pretty fickle about games. I’ve probably spent more money on games than I’ve spent on clothes in the last 10 years, which to me, is funny.
Here’s my list of current favorites:
World of Warcraft – I actually made this video…no shit.
Call of Duty 2 and 4
Crysis - not so good.
Black and White 1/2
