What is G&G to you?: Grenades and Goblins is a catalyst for me to express myself online through YouTube/Twitch with two of my best friends. I already loved the idea of making videos and podcasts, and have flirted with both ideas in the past, but allying myself with the likes of these nerds (ItsBreadTime, SubliminalCheese, WayneGregsky) has allowed me to amplify my voice into the gaming commuinity. I very regularly imbibe in online gaming content, and have always had a desire to add to the conversation.
Background: Growing up with gaming was interesting for me. I grew up in deep East Texas with very little access to the latest gaming consoles.I grew up with NES, SNES, and PlayStation. Playing MegaMan and Kirby in my dad’s bedroom were some of the best memories I have. Gaming has always been a passion of mine. I still remember my first experience on Xbox Live playing Perfect Dark Zero with my buddy Zack from down the street. Since then I’ve taken a more critical and appreciative view of video games. Games have now become and escape from the real world of grinding away at my SYSADMIN job. Now that tech has consumed my life I really try and over analyze the semantics of games and game design.
Systems Owned: NES, SNES, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Xbox 360, Gamecube, Xbox One, and thankfully @magicalmidgets owns a PS4 so I get all those sweet sweet exclusives
