I'll go next!
I live in the U.S. and am in my 30s. I was a claims adjuster for an insurance company, but have since retired. I love the beach, killer whales, dinosaurs, gnomes (I would totally become one in RL if I could), waffles, music - and course modding and gaming.
Of course... its probably obvious that I love games, being on this site. I have since I was a child. My first exposure to them was the 'Tank' game on Atari, before the NES came out, and I was hooked.
But it wasn't until I played Metroid, in 1987, that I truly fell in love with gaming. I beat the game on my own, pretty much through freak luck I think, and got the ending where Samus was revealed to be a woman. As a young girl, that was the coolest thing ever - even at that age I was tired of the 'save the Princess' crap that we saw in Mario, Zelda and other games.
So it was nice to see that the 'princess' was the one kicking ass in Metroid! I've since played every game in the series (except for Pinball) and beaten all of them except Return of Samus on Gameboy. The eyestrain was too much for me. :/ To this day I still consider Super Metroid to be the best game I've played, followed closely by Yoshi's Island.
I was pretty heavy into the arcade scene of the 90s too, playing games of Street Fighter 2, Mortal Kombat 2 (I didn't like the first one, but 2 was great IMO) and Killer Instinct against many other players. I'm sad that arcades have more or less died out.

I'm a 17 year old who is attending school and serving as an infantryman in the Canadian Armed Forces. I was sworn into the Royal Winnipeg Rifles on the 29th of April this year. I live in Winnipeg (duh ) and on my spare time I either socialize with others or I train to prepare for any upcoming military training courses.
Sorry I don't have any awesome pictures like voodoo. We aren't allowed to take pictures while we're working. There is an older picture of me in the photo album but I'll try to some newer (and cooler ) ones in the near future.

I don't really like talking about my personal career, which would compromise the likings of others, but I'm a man 23 years of age, I like military stuff and gaming. I'm an artist in both drawn and 3D, and will attempt architecture in 3D making if I have the interest enough to do it.
I'm easy to get along with anyone, but I won't be pushed around or walked over. Though despite my threshold on how much abuse I can tolerate, I'm slow to anger though. But don't get me wrong. I like to make friends, not enemies.
But yeah, if some of you can figure it out, yes I had a pretty dark history. I'm hoping to move forward and put all that behind me, but sometimes the past just keeps following you wherever you go. Usually, I tend to ignore anything defamatory or derogatory if it comes to anything negative about me or some valuables of mine.
I'm secretive of my personal information, and I represent no country, no religion, no color of skin. I'm my own man, I go by the independent border. I also have a strong hate for politics, politicians, and political parties too. I'm fully anti-political, so yeah. I don't like talking about politics alot, but I follow in the footsteps of people who I believe are doing justice not only for myself, but for people like me and so on. But yeah, I'm used to the darkness of this modern world, so it pretty much made me who I am.
But yeah, I'm a black sheep in wolf's clothing. I have both my friendly side, and my dark side. But yeah, I like playing the dark hero. I like sticking up for little people up against their invaders in large numbers, lol. But in all priorities, I like to film, mod, play games. Those are things I like doing. Of course, you don't wanna know about my history, so don't ask.

My turn, I am 17 years old I am into philosophy, religion, and politics, about everyday I think about those topics to my self or express them to others. I am a humanist and I would love to start doing Humanitarian work such as helping animals and the homeless. People call me a dreamer because I have such high hopes for the future of the human race and that I believe that I can change the world . Enough about that, I got into video games at the age of 11 a bit late compared to some of my friends. One of my first games was Fallout 3 and thats what got me truely into video games . I play the guitar and I would love to have a band. I am a vary strange person because of my mix personality . So that's the basics of "me"

Hello I'm Garrett, I am twenty-two years old and am currently attending the ITT-Technical Institute here in Utah for a degree in Network Systems Administration. Computers have always been my passion and I have been building them since I was in third grade. I also play a lot of video games and love to mod them of course. Other things I like include astronomy, music, weightlifting, outdoors, and building stuff; among other things.

Hi all , names Marcos i just joined recently if you havent noticed already . Im 18 and getting ready to join the U.S Marines . Hobbies that interest me include wrestling(not that wwe crap no offence to anyone who follows that haha) , going to the gym lifting and being physically active , and of course games. In regards to music i listen to almost anything . I like the wilderness especially hiking long distances, i feel a sense of accomplishment for some reason when hiking.I enjoy military simulations and basically anything military. Not sure what else to say .

It seems perfect to go after Marcos.
My name is James, and I'm an Officer in the U.S. Navy. I received my degree from the California Maritime Academy, and minored at the University of California, Berkeley (GO BEARS amirite?). At university, I studied Maritime Policy and Admiralty Law. I did four years of ROTC to receive my commission. I've been in for a year, and completed my first tour exactly a month ago. I was a COMM-O aboard a Flight II Destroyer, although that lasted for a short amount of time before I was sent across the Japanese main island of Honshu on a series of public relations events. My career has been pretty adventurous thus far; I've visited Australia, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Saipan, and Hawaii. It's never easy, and I do have many sea stories where I witnessed the indomitable spirit of man tested by the unstoppable forces of nature. The stress also comes from looking after my thirty sailors all of whom I love dearly and with all my heart. But being only 23, it's never easy... I love to work with the Marines, PT with them, and even do some of the drills with them.
RIMPAC (This happens annually, but this particular footage was taken a year before I went active)
My career constitutes a big part of my identity, but I do have many things I enjoy outside of the military. I was a cross country runner in high school and in college (a total of eight years). I enjoy racing half-marathons and running full ones for completion. I also box and compete in Crossfit Open competitions (althought I'm a horrible olympic weight lifter). While I was in ROTC I led the Endurance team which is a group of four of the most fit Midshipmen (cadets) who compete nationwide against midshipmen from other schools in a 13 mile race with equipment. Along the way there are obstacles and exercises that must be done at their respective stations.
RUN ALL DAY, ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD (Vietnam)
But I also do other things such as paint! I collect, sculpt and paint miniatures. I also used to sing in musicals during my high school days. I admit my vocals are a bit rusty now.

I figure the fact that I'm obsessed with games is a bit too obvious :3. I'll see you all out there!

A good topic idea indeed! Well I'll start off stating that I am an introvert, I am 20 years old and after 1 year of English philology and culture in Vienna I am now studying in my home county, Slovakia, English and Slovak philology. I absolutely love music and sound (so audio effects too!), which is reflected in my sense of immersion in gaming (good footstep sounds add A LOT to immersion ). I am also a musician myself doing various gigs alongside my trusty guitars, french harps (mouth harps-I think it is officially called) and an old piano. I like writing, reading and editing poetry too. Games have given me an edge in life, I was miles ahead in foreign languages thanks to games, which my schoolmates didn't play, I have learnt various trivia thanks to games, morals, bit of history, cars (need for speed ), military equipment and philosophy. Since I don't have many people with who I could talk about games, I am here forgive the wall of text btw... cheers!

Oooh I like this idea!
Well then, I'm 20, Canadian, and I think I'm well balanced between intro- and extroverted. Living in L.A., I'm moving to Vancouver Island (I was born in Vancouver mainland) for an education in Linguistics in hopes of a career involving speech pathology for children. Or to be a professor.
My gaming career involves New Vegas, looking for distractions from New Vegas, then going back to it. Current distractions include Dishonored (going for a low chaos ending) and DayZ (the new update has it running terribly on my weak computer though)
Besides gaming, my main thing is music. Piano, guitar, singing (badly), and anything I can hit with a stick. Life is good.
