Games of Choice 
Dota 2 and the Final Fantasy series. Too many hours “wasted”. Let’s not get into the exact numbers.
Bio Working with chemicals is what I do. While that may sound fun, it’s actually incredibly complex and weird. Beyond that, I’ve been gaming since I was the age of 4. I started off with Sega Megadrive games and worked my way up the food chain to where I am now. You could call me a veteran gamer of sorts.

Games of Choice Destiny – 800 hours later and I’m still doing the same thing over and over again. Multiple RPG’s -I don’t want to admit the hours spent. Don’t make me.
Bio Even though I had played Mario and all the other childhood classics before, I really started playing games with my Dad on our first PC. Warcraft and StarCraft introduced me to the world of gaming, and it’s pretty much been a major part of my life since then. I play pretty much anything that comes my way on whichever platform it may be.

Games of Choice
 I am not really a one-game-guy, but one game series I’ve spent a lot of time with is Metal Gear.
Bio I am a qualified electronic engineer and full-time post graduate student. From my weapons of choice, you will see that I have an affection for consoles, but it is simply because I spend most of my time in front of a computer. So when I get home, there is nothing better than grabbing a cold one and a controller and playing games on my couch.

Gaming Systems PC.
Games of Choice League of Legends – 2600 hours and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (2000+ hours of quickscoping, trickshots and backscoping – yes that’s a thing).
Bio Gaming runs through my veins and has done so ever since I got my hands on the mighty keyboard and mouse. I love FPS, MOBAs, and strategies. I hate cheaters, defeatists and the flamers, although I enjoy giving all of them a hard time. Through many years of buying, building and breaking computers I have amassed a vast knowledge regarding hardware and tech.

Gaming Systems PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PSP, Cellphone.
Games of Choice Dota 2, L4D2, and ruining friendships with mad Tekken skills.
Bio Grew up playing arcade games on my dad’s work laptop with my older brother, and always being relegated to player 2. Spent most of my childhood sorting through my Pokémon cards and playing RPGs, although I feel cheated because I still have never played any Legend of Zelda games. Only recently got an internet line able to play online games, and the world hasn’t seen more than my avatar since.
