Ever since he was given a second hand gameboy before he could read, Michael hasn't stopped gaming since. While he comes from handheld heritage, he has since moved onto the home consoles offerings of both Sony and Nintendo for the past three generations, with the odd addiction to Real Time Strategies a la Age of Empires on the PC. He is also an avid fan of all things survival horror and of the open world variety.
