I work in in-bound marketing, I live in the UK (NW England) and was born and raised in Wales. I live with my partner, having successfully reverted him to his gaming roots. We are allowed to share a home with our overlord Zeus, a ginger cat who is actually part horse, part monkey.

Gaming has defined who I am for a long time; even when I didn't play myself I used to watch my parents and brother playing console games. Some (many) of my memories of being a kid have games as a focal point.

Games I remember fondly include Zelda: a Link to the Past, Vib Ribbon, Duke Nukem, Doom, Hogs of War, and many more.

I consider my own first gaming love to be The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind. Not the first game I played but the first I spent time thinking about when I wasn't playing. My last two major PC upgrades have coincided with Elder Scrolls releases. By accident. Ahem.

Why I'm a PC gamer, not a console gamer - keyboard & mouse, modding, community, World of Warcraft owns part of my soul (you're never really free of it, even if you stop paying them)

comment What are the Minecraft Easter eggs?
I don't see why this is too broad. We have loads of questions like 'what are all the x in y' (gaming.stackexchange.com/search?q=what+are+all+the) and I don't see what the difference of this one is.

There has already been a discussion on Meta about this and it was deemed to be acceptable. meta.gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/8133/…

comment Why are my crew starstruck?
@ColonelPanic anything which can stun. Weapons hitting the room they are in is the most likely culprit.
