My name’s Chris. I’m a 47-year-old who’s on the spectrum and has been living with mental health issues nearly all my life. Videogames became an escape for me at a very young age. I’ve been playing videogames since the age of 6 when I was given an Atari 2600. What started as something to do when I was bored or trying to get through an especially difficult day, grew into an obsession when I received a Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) for a birthday/Christmas gift. I instantly became a lifelong fan of Nintendo and their way of approaching game development.
I’ve now found what I think is the perfect gaming platform (for me) in the Nintendo Switch. It’s hybrid nature allows me to play my favorite games whenever the urge strikes. I also don’t have the luxury of sitting on a couch, in front of a big-screen TV, for hours at a time.
I’ve decided to begin sharing my thoughts by starting this blog. I’ll be sharing my (sometimes controversial) opinions on the world of Nintendo gaming. (You’ll find that I’m not a fanboy who thinks Nintendo can do no wrong.) A lot of what I write is opinion pieces or features. I also do some reviews. I’m not trying to be a news source, so I don’t attempt to post every single news item, there are more than enough media outlets doing that. I’m just a passionate gamer sharing his views. I really hope you enjoy your time here. I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions as well, so be sure to leave a comment or hit me up on social media.
I’ve recently started a Ko-Fi page to try and help myself move out and away from my current living situation. Even if you can’t afford to donate, a quick share on your social media account would help me get some exposure and hopefully help me work towards my goal. In any case, thank you for taking the time to read this.
