About Author

Being a relatively young gamer I still grew up with and appreciate the classics. I was raised on Tony Hawk, resident evil, Majoras mask and many other early 2000s titles. When it comes to my taste in games, I typically gravitate towards narrative games, that’s why my favorite game of all time is life is strange. Though I enjoy every type of game so long as I have fun! Going in a totally different direction, my favorite game series is the Yakuza/Like a Dragon franchise. I typically try to 100% and get the platinum trophy for every game I play. The number one thing a game needs in my opinion is a great soundtrack, everything is amplified when it’s accompanied by good music.
