I work in in-bound marketing, I live in the UK (NW England) and was born and raised in Wales. I live with my partner, having successfully reverted him to his gaming roots. We are allowed to share a home with our overlord Zeus, a ginger cat who is actually part horse, part monkey.

Gaming has defined who I am for a long time; even when I didn't play myself I used to watch my parents and brother playing console games. Some (many) of my memories of being a kid have games as a focal point.

Games I remember fondly include Zelda: a Link to the Past, Vib Ribbon, Duke Nukem, Doom, Hogs of War, and many more.

I consider my own first gaming love to be The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind. Not the first game I played but the first I spent time thinking about when I wasn't playing. My last two major PC upgrades have coincided with Elder Scrolls releases. By accident. Ahem.

Why I'm a PC gamer, not a console gamer - keyboard & mouse, modding, community, World of Warcraft owns part of my soul (you're never really free of it, even if you stop paying them)

comment What should filenames and URLs of images contain for SEO benefit?
This is a really interesting question and definitely something I'd be interested to know about since I've never given much thought to image filenames, just the alt-text etc.
