I live near Denver, Colorado. I have been playing video games almost my entire life and have always been fascinated by them. Since I was young, I have always had the ability to learn rapidly and then understand what I learned before most of my peers. There is a part of me that always assumes that there is a more efficient way to do things than however I am shown or have been told of; that the only thing keeping me from discovering this more efficient method is a lack of knowledge that would take longer to obtain and retain than would truly be worth. Because of this, I observe and question those exceeding me in knowledge or skill, trying to gain a foothold for my own mind to explore and search faults and strengths. Though, even when I do find a weakness in something, I rarely voice it- unless I know exactly how it could be reshaped to perfection. Unfortunately, this part of my personality tends to make me appear insubordinate, and sometimes appearances are not deceiving.
As far as video games go, I can't picture my life without them. I love doing other things, like spending time with family, watching TV/movies, camping, traveling, and having exciting trips around town, but guitar and video games are my go-to-hobbies. They're how I enjoy using my free time when I can't afford or don't feel like doing anything special. Of course, that doesn't mean I'm just a casual gamer. The feeling of winning a great competitive match against worthy opponents is nearly unequaled; It gives a sense of accomplishment that casual, mess-around, only for fun gaming doesn't give.
I have been sponsored once before, by an organization that I didn't respect very much. They had imperialistic methods of recruitment, sponsoring teams only as long as they gave up any and all self-recognition and played solely for the organization, this causes problems when the team applying for the sponsorship is over-qualified. And being one of those people, my first ill-impression of sponsored gaming was short-lived.
I enjoy playing with real people, in an online or LAN environment, because it usually makes a game that much better, even though it sometimes makes it worse.
