Ever since I can remember, gaming has been a part of my life. When my family moved and we were the only house for miles, I had gaming on my Super Nintendo. On long car rides to Maryland, I had (portable) gaming with my Gameboy. When I went off to college and didn’t know how to make friends, I kept my door open and invited people walking by to come in to play Last Night On Earth.
Okay, I’m going to give a friendly bit of advice to all of you budding game developers out there: If you’re going to make a little indie game that you hope will catch fire like a Minecraft, or an FTL, or a H1Z1 PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Fortnite, then give it a title that is easy to find with a search engine.

I am not a gamer – not in the traditional sense. I have only recently gotten into gaming, particularly PC gaming. I am 36 years old with a career and a family, and I thought I just did not have time for video games. I enjoyed them in my youth, spending hours upon hours maneuvering Mario and spinning Sonic until I was blue in the face. Then at some point, I just outgrew it.
