The first video game I played was Sonic 2 on the Sega Genesis, before I noticed the console was dusty and washed it in the sink. While I saved up for a Nintendo 64, my dad downloaded Pokémon Red, Pokémon Yellow (in Japanese) and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the computer. None of the games had sound, so we played through all of Ocarina of Time thinking "Zelda's Lullaby" was just the keys F-I-L-F-I-L. Eventually, we did end up buying an N64, where my brother and I played the original Super Smash Bros. (where I mained Yoshi and Kirby), Pokemon Puzzle League, and Ocarina of Time — with sound! Once the PlayStation 2 came out, a neighbor donated her PlayStation to us, where our family played Final Fantasy VII and Megaman 8. Then VHS tapes went extinct, so we got a PS2 for the DVD player function, where I ended up playing Kingdom Hearts (before the series got crazy) and Guitar Hero (which was my gateway to music). I didn't play Super Smash Bros. Melee (mained Luigi) or The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker until I got a Nintendo Wii. Of course, we also played Wii games on it, like Super Smash Bros. Brawl (mained Luigi, Lucas and Olimar), Project M (mained Luigi, Kirby, and Ness), and Chrono Trigger. My brother came home with a free, random Xbox 360, where we struggled through Portal 2 and Bioshock. Besides my recently adopted Nintendo 3DS for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U (main Zero Suit Samus, Dr. Mario and Ness), I've mainly been playing PC games, specifically off Steam, especially once I realized MOBAs are not the right games for me.

After Guitar Hero, I gradually wanted to become a music journalist. The articles I wrote for the school newspaper and, once I got to Emory, the music magazine were fun, but once I started working for the music section of a real newspaper, I realized that the popular music scene at the moment wasn't right for me. I found myself listening to video game soundtracks when I was supposed to be listening to EDM. I found myself writing video game music instead of writing articles about the upcoming festivals. So I changed my career path from music journalism to video game music composer and, with all those journalism skills over the years, video game journalism.
