I play a lot of video games. Some of the first games I played were Pokémon Gold, A Link to the Past, and AdventureQuest. The only consoles I've owned are a SNES, a PlayStation One, a Game Boy Color, and a Nintendo DS.
I created my Steam account in 2011 to get Portal for free, and I've been a PC gamer ever since. Back then, I mostly played Spiral Knights and Team Fortress 2. I even spun up a couple of my own servers and wrote some plugins for Team Fortress 2.
I've played a lot of MMOs, most of them being free-to-play. I'm not sure why I continue subjecting myself to the grind, but I do it anyway. Tera Online, Blade & Soul, Dungeon Fighter Online, The Elder Scrolls Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Spiral Knights, PokéMMO, Wakfu, Rusty Hearts... I've settled on Final Fantasy XIV for the time being.
I also consider myself an avid Dota 2 player even though I'm really bad at the game. I also have the least games played out of all my Dota friends, so I guess that's one reason why. I attended The International in 2016 and 2017.
