Gaming since the ZX81
I have been playing games since owning a ZX81 (with 16K Cheetah pack!) plugged into a black and white TV with a rotating dial to try and find channels.
I managed to force my parents green and black screened Amstrad PCW to play games to feed my digital addiction. From there I progressed to a Commodore 64 and my first encounters with Elite- a love affair that carries on today with Elite:Dangerous. There was a brief (unfortunate) dalliance with an Atari ST before my parents bought a giddily powerful 486DX. I eventually reached the rank of Elite after trying over three different platforms. From there on in it's a list of gradually more and more powerful PC's to the i7 beast I use today.
Elite:Dangerous takes up a lot of gaming time, shunning the mantra of 'git gud', and you are all welcome to join in the travels- pop into our Discord channel to learn more. I'm Currently retired from Twitch but never say never- I have the creative juices but all the organisational skills of a deranged moth so who knows what's next. I'm always up for playing new games, especially if they can be shared with our community.
Seeing as you read this far.. here's a secret game, just for you.
