I'm a gamer for as long as I can remember. My major accomplishments are:

  1. Played Pong (and 9 other sports games) on a Philco Telejogo II.
  2. My father had to lift me up so I could hold the machine gun on the Operation Wolf arcade. I enjoyed hitting the medics that passed through with stretchers while my dad screamed "No! Not them!"
  3. Beat all the other kids playing Atari Decathlon without hurting my hands.
  4. Waited anxiously (but waited!) for 5 to 10 minutes for the cassette games to load on my MSX 1 over and over again.
  5. Got to rank Dangerous playing Elite (on the MSX) while most other kids only got to Competent.
  6. Played through the original Metal Gear 1 & 2 on the MSX several times (even risked the friendship with my best friend, a Japanese-Brazilian, asking him to translate critical parts of the plots from Kanji to Portuguese).

After that, people started bugging me to study more, get a job, get married, then I stopped playing as much. Nowadays, I occasionally play Android, PC, Wii and PS3 games. On the PS3, I still take a while to get used to the controller in each game and am usually crushed to pieces by younger opponents in online games.

My favorite games of all time are:

  1. XCOM Ufo Defense (PC & PS3)
  2. GTA V (PS3)
  3. Assassin's Creed (PS3)
  4. F1 2012 (PS3)
  5. GTA San Andreas (PS2)
  6. Need for Speed - Hot Pursuit (PS2)
  7. Kerbal Space Program (PC)
  8. Gran Turismo 4 & 5 (PS2/3)
  9. Minecraft: PC Edition
  10. Wii Sports (Wii)
  11. Dance Dance Revolution (PS2)
  12. Civilization 2 (PC)
  13. Syndicate (Old PC version)
  14. Elite (MSX)
  15. Hay Day (yeah, I said it...) (Android)
  16. Xevious (Arcade)
  17. Doom (PC)
  18. Prince of Persia (PC 286)
  19. SD Snatcher (MSX2)
  20. Metal Gear 1 & 2 (MSX2)
  21. Payload (MSX)
  22. Thexter (MSX)
  23. The Dreadnaught Factor (Intellivision)
  24. Shark! Shark! (Intellivision)
  25. Tron - The Deadly Discs (Intellivision)
  26. Burgertime (Intellivision)
  27. Beamrider (Intellivision)
  28. Frostbite (Atari 2600)
  29. H.E.R.O (Atari 2600)
  30. Berzerk (Atari 2600)
