I've been hanging around here a couple of months but I think I forgot to properly introduce myself. I should probably put this right since it seems that I'm here to stay.
I'm 22 years old.
I like point and click adventures (proper ones, none of this hidden object nonsense).
I started gaming in the mid '90s on an MS-DOS laptop that my parents were given by someone (the screen was broken so we had to use a CRT). Given that it was a laptop, it could only play games from 5-6 years prior and so my actual experiences were more in line with the late '80s. My first console (again in the mid '90s) was a Sega Master System, again outdated for the time I got it.
All of this has given me a healthy appreciation for old games and a general disinterest in graphics.
My all time favourite games are probably Riven, Grim Fandango, Earthbound and Zelda: Link's Awakening.
My main hobby (other than gaming) is playing music/home recording/sound engineering. Occasionally I combine the two and record game themes: Super Mario Land (World 2)
