I contradict stereotypes as I am both a sports coach, doing a sporting degree at university in Scotland, where I live and I'm also an avid gamer and have been since I was 3 years old!
You don't have to hate/not care about sports to be a gamer guys! :D
I'm into all sorts of games but a good story can sometimes be a deal breaker for me. I'm a sucker for it, probably because i have a massive imagination and I love reading fantasy novels. It all started with Sonic 1 on the Sega Megadrive (that's Genesis in the states) for me and I've been hooked ever since.
My favourite (that's favorite in the states :P) series is probably the Final Fantasy series with my favourite being IX and my least favourite being XII, i really dislike that game. I'm also one of the, apparently few people who love XIII. (Sorry Jared!)
That's it I guess. Anything else you wanna know then just ask! :D
P.S. I dislike most sports games despite being a sports coach and an athlete myself. I guess I just prefer to actually physically play sports and video games are a chance to do something I can't do in real life.
