About Fabulous

I was around 5-6 years old when I started getting interested in videogames. I believe my first game was Dragor le Dragon, a small PC game my parents got from god knows where, but it likely came from one of those 90’s cereal boxes. I remember playing it on a Windows 95 PC that we still have in storage after a decade.

When the N64 came around, my first game must have been Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I loved the game. Two of my childhood friends and I had a bit of a ritual to get together at one of theirs houses only to watch their father play. It may seem strange but I remember loving watching him play. I was impressed and in awe at how easy he made it look. I was still too afraid to play the game at home. I remember the zombies in the castle and the cries they made, at 6-7 years old, it was a bit much for me to handle.

I got my hands on other games such as Donkey Kong, Fighting Force (omg!), Pokemon Stadium, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Banjo-Kazooie to name a few. I can’t really put a number to how many hours I put into gaming. Every Friday (almost), my mother would rent us a console and a few games. One day, she came home with a gift for my sisters and me, a moment I’ll never forget. It was like a second Christmas, we finally had our very own console at home! My parents finally had understood how much more financially sound it was to own than to rent.

If I had to pick a game that marked my childhood, I would have to say without any hesitation, Super Smash Bros Melee. It was the first game where my desire to play competitively came to light. I used to play Pikachu at the time, and then when the GameCube came around, I switched to Sheik. I loved her, she was fast and that was all I needed.I can’t count how many guys, along with their egos, I destroyed playing this game. The look on their faces when they realized what they had gotten themselves into was priceless. I couldn’t have been happier.

After the GameCube, I migrated to PC gaming. I found World of Warcraft quite by accident. I heard some guys talking about it in class. Without knowing at the time what World of Warcraft would one day become, I bought a copy at Costco. I couldn’t have guessed I’d spend 7-8 years playing a single game which I gladly did.

Now, Overwatch is here, and I’m with a team willing to push themselves to the limit and beyond. In a way, it’s part of my natural evolution as a gamer. Coming to this point is a dream I’m 100% invested in.
