My name's Albert "Cheese" Vetere III. I'm 22 years old, living in Queens, NY, and currently enrolled full-time at Queens College studying Accounting and Economics.
I've been a gamer ever since I was a kid. I grew up playing everything from the NES on. I was always the one who wanted to keep playing when everyone else got bored, and from there I grew a passion for competition. I began competing locally around age 13 in a variety of games, but began taking competition seriously in 2007. After moving into my dorm at college, I discovered that my roommates played Super Smash Brothers Melee. I played Melee for a while without any real success, but when Brawl, the newest Smash Brothers game came out, I decided to try and reach the next level. After a rough two years, I made a real breakthrough, reaching the Power Rankings for NY/NJ, where I've consistently remained.
I have a deep passion for Smash because of its accessibility. There are very few difficult inputs in the game, anyone can pick up the game and execute what they want, when they want. I feel this allows the player to concentrate more on making smart decisions than executing difficult combos. I also feel that the ease of access allows new players the new scene, and learn quickly. Instead of being stuck in a rut where you simply "get trashed" by people better than you for a long time before you can even stand a chance. I believe this is the main reason the Smash series has had such staying power in the competitive scene.
The times I've had gaming: the wins, the losses, the laughs, the tears, the shattered hopes, the aspirations to greatness, have been the greatest times of my life, and I wouldn't trade them for anything. I'd like to thank my vVv family for being pretty much the greatest group of people...ever.
