Not sure I did a post here on introductions so I figured I would do it again.


 


About me:


 


We had pcs in my house for as long as I can remember. The first pc I remember is a commodore 64 with a green screen. My dad always let us play pc games and we would often rent them for us (yes back in the day we could rent pc games). He was not a fan of game consoles and said many times he would never buy one the closes we got was Nintendo Gameboys. My dad was a pc programmer, and network admin and would often bring home spare computer parts for us to take apart and play with. When I was about 8 years old, I got my first personal computer. However, my dad required that in order to get my own pc I had to learn how to build it myself. So at an early age I started building my own computers. I started with an Intel Pentium (yes the first Pentium) with windows 3.1. As I grew up I became better and better at building pc’s. When I got a job as a paper boy about 12 I was able to start buying some new pc parts instead of using the hand-me-down parts from my dad’s work. I enjoyed playing computer games with my brother. And the pc games we grew up on were C&C, Red Alert, Warcraft, diablo, and StarCraft. Though I was never that good at any of the games (my brother always beat me). The games I enjoyed the most were Warcraft and Diablo (my favorite of those 2 was Diablo). I enjoyed the games not just for playing but for the stories. I loved the story lines (I was never into books that much because of some learning problems I have books were always hard to read), Because books were hard for me to read I think I leaned more toward the pc games and the stories behind them I could play through.


I am now happily married (12 years now). I have 3 great kids their ages are 10, 9 and 2. My wife and I decided to take turns going to collage so one of us could be a parent. We put my wife through school first and now I am currently working through school myself. I am working on a bachelors in “Art Visual Communications” with a focus on Illustration. I am a stay at home dad while I am going to school. My wife works full time to support the family and although having one parent not working is hard, and money tight especially now a days. I still find the time to enjoy video games and play when I have the time. I also still love to build computers and have built my wife’s and mine.

Hi Ezrum!  I remember those computers with the green screens...those were the days, eh?  :)  I enjoy the story lines of games the most too; that's why I like SWTOR so much.  Glad you found us!
