Me describing me: (April 2009)

Hmmmm. I’m quiet, usually…i give really bad first impressions. I love playing games, but most of the games i play, are nothing but demos. It’s all i need personally, to get a feel for the game’s design. I love to play video games to see what each development team has done, what new innovation if any, has been put out into the industry, and what the developers could have done to improve a certain aspect of the game, usually stuff like “what i would have done if i was the developer“.

I believe strongly in the MMO/Online Game sector of the industry..i see it as the future of gaming. Playing a game with friends and other people is what Games are really all about.. just go back to games like Tag, or Hide-n-Seek, a game is played through the generations because of the interactivity between other human beings.

I have a strong passion for the Gaming Industry (and movies, but i think games are much more interactive & social than watching a movie on a couch)..and that’s my goal in life, to be either running my own company or to be part of a company that becomes the ‘next big thing’ in the gaming industry. I want to be part of the team that pushes the envelope, expands the limits of what the art form is capable of, and set new heights for the Industry. Example studios i get inspired by include the Valve team (Half-life/Portal), Crytek team (Crysis), Unreal team (Epic Games), & ArenaNet (GuildWars).

But the road to get there, doesn’t look like an easy one at all. (:
