I'm Chris, or 7he ODdeST_1 (Call me ODdeST or ODd) I'm 18 and I'd say I've been a gamer since the start of 2000, though my games were limited to Worms and Spyro until I got an Xbox and Destroy all Humans/Halo: CE bundle and then I started getting various other games.
I didn't start seriously gaming on PC until a few years ago when I had a custom built PC made. My first games for that PC was Halo: CE so I could play Custom Edition and later Fallout 3 and The Orange Box (Which interestingly introduced me to both Steam and GfWL rather early and allowed me decide which I preferred).
Before getting a good PC I occasionally played Rollercoaster Tycoon and the first few Harry Potter games on my families shared PC (I'll take a third person action-adventure platformer over a third-person shooter any day :/ ).
As you can tell I'm no old-school gamer, however I have always preferred old school games, since often they did things first, and often got it right and there aren't many games coming out that I could say I'm super excited for. However I am a keen follower of the indie circuit.
Apologies if my intro is nothing but pointless hot air, why not add me on Steam: :D 7he ODdeST_1
