BAMozzy

Hi my name is BAmozzy (but BAM or Mozzy is accepted)

I have been gaming for over 40yrs and started with 'Pong' in the 70's - the original couch co-op game! I gamed on various early consoles like the Atari 2600 and home computer's like the BBC Model B, Vic 20, ZX80, ZX81, Sinclair Spectrum, Amstrad CPC 464, Amiga, Dragon 32 (very little software on that) before PC's took over. I had numerous handheld and desktop gaming devices - like Astro Wars, Pac Man a fair few of the Nintendo Game and Watch series etc before the Gameboy came along and that replaced all of those. I had the original, a colour, an Advance and a DSi and spent too much money in Arcades too.

I didn't really play much on consoles in the 80's early 90's as a teenager because the Sega and Nintendo consoles were seen as 'childs' toys and not for teenagers or Adults. I had friends with young brothers/sisters so I did get to play these occasionally. It wasn't until the N64/PS1 era that I bought a console again. Since then I have owned every PS, every Xbox, the N64 and Wii. When I moved to a smaller house around 5/6yrs ago, I had amassed several Microwave boxes full of games going back to the the early 80's - thousands of games - all of which had to be binned.... I still have my Crystal Xbox, my original 60GB PS3 Phat, My PS3 320GB Slim. My XB360 Slim w Kinect, my OG Xbox One w Kinect, my Gears 4 Xbox One Slim and ALL my games for these two - I don't trade in games and only sold consoles to replace with newer versions of that console - with one exception - I did sell my Virtual Boy as that made me ill playing it.

I consider myself to be a gamer with absolutely no allegiance to any particular name on the front of the plastic box under my TV that allows me to play 'games'. Whichever box offers the best performance in ANY game that I want to play will get used. If that means (as it does right now) that the PS4 Pro is the best place to play PS exclusives only and the Xbox X, the best place for multi-platform and the exclusives that has, so be it - it doesn't make me an Xbox fanboy - it just means that I am more interested in playing the games at their 'best' they can be on consoles. I couldn't care less what name is on the lump of plastic and electronics, the one that offers the best will be the one that gets the most games bought for it and the other is mostly for exclusives and any free games I get.

Anyway, that's my gaming history. Now I am a 'disabled' gamer with degenerative mobility so can't get around anymore - not quite in a wheelchair - although my GP said I would be by the time I'm 40. I also 'try' to play guitar as well...

I joined PushSquare after OPM, OXM and C&VG disappeared. I have now been here for nearly 4yrs...

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

Th3solution

Greetings, fellow humans.

I’m Th3solution. I just haven’t found out yet what Th3problem is.
I was raised in a wonderful family, and exposed to video games at an early age. I find it a great way to reduce stress. Much better than exercising.
I came to Push Square rather randomly after trying to find some people online with common interests to chat with and share my passion for video games and nerd culture. ...Yeah, I’m a nerd. What’s it to ya?
I like ice cream, peanut butter, and mint flavored chocolate. I like movies, good books, and sleeping in. I dislike mean people and paying taxes.
Fantasy and Science Fiction are what makes life worthwhile. And art and music is what makes the world go ‘round. And I do enjoy history too. I’m not sure why, but I find it fascinating.
I enjoy spending time on Push Square as I think of it like being in a big room or pub with a bunch of like minded people and we all just shoot the bull about games and life. One big group of friends and acquaintances who have common interests, despite being on opposite ends of the world. My few offline friends never quite share my passion for gaming and geek life.
I try to be kind to everyone. Sometimes I fail, but not often.

Howdy, I'm Quintumply, and I never say howdy in real life.

My real name is Stephen, and I work on this very site! I found Push Square a couple of years ago and joined the team of reviewers, and at the start of this year, was taken on as full-time staff. I'm obviously a massive fan of games, but I also enjoy doing my own creative writing, singing in a choir, and pretending to be an actor with local theatre groups.

I try to take things easy and stay positive

crippyd

Hi All,

I'm CrippyD and I've been gaming since the late '70s/early '80s starting out on a Pong alike console my dad had and then graduating to a Spectrum 128+ and an Amiga 500 with the expanded RAM. In my teenage years gaming took a backseat until my little brother got into it and had the SNES and N64 with a couple of handhelds mixed in. After that I got a PS1 so I could play Gran Tourismo and had that for a few years until the same little brother showed me Halo on the original Xbox. That put me on the path to the Dark Side and I've been on Xbox since.
I enjoy reading the articles here and interacting with the other members when I have something meaningful to contribute and I came here from sister site Pure Xbox (RIP). I'm sure if I had the time and finances I'd have both consoles but the reality of a family and adulting have put a stop to that.

Hi everybody!

Hmm it's hard to think of things to write about myself. My name is Sam. I hope I'm not a mook but the word has always amused me.

Main hobby is gaming, which I've been doing since I was 7. Nowadays I mostly game on PlayStation platforms, although I still have a soft spot for Nintendo. My favourite franchises are Zelda and Final Fantasy. I love animals and am a vegan. I'm also writing a book!

Gremio108

Hello, Gremio here (not my birth name).

I joined Push Square early last year, because the staff and forum members alike are good eggs. I am married with two children and I work backstage in a theatre. I have lots of juicy celebrity stories which I can't write here because it would be tantamount to libel, but if you ever meet me in person ask me and I'll tell you. I can say that I once accidentally ate Idina Menzel's lunch.

Apart from gaming, I like walking, writing, reading and football, though not all at the same time. I generally try to look on the bright side (although I'm sure my wife would tell you that I can have my moments), and if the opportunity to make a silly comment comes up, I will take it.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 That story is awesome - please tell me that when Idina Menzel found out you just told her to 'Let it go'.

Alright then, I'm Kyle (as you can probably tell) and I've been round this neck of the woods for 4 years or so.

I'm a property manager and client book keeper in London which I've been doing in various forms for 10 years since I moved here from the north. Basically the middle man between hundreds of tenants and landlords, which is about as fun as it sounds.

Gaming since what, 1991? Started on a Commodore 64, went through Segas 8bit and 16bit machines before moving onto PS1.

This place is the bomb yo.

@Rudy_Manchego Ha, no - I can't believe I didn't think of that, I've let myself down there. Marti Pellow did once ask me what the weather was like outside, that took incredible restraint.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Don't worry, I would have not thought of it or just completely folded into a heap. I have no idea how you had that restraint!

Hi, I'm Ryan. I'm a 29 year old guy from California. Grew up with PS1 and PS2 as a child then eventually got a PSP and PS3. I finally bought my own PS4 last year and have been loving the heck out of it.

Other than gaming, I am really into watching animation (anime/cartoons), TV shows, and movies. I also liked to read books, comics, and manga but just don't have the time for them anymore.

Real life wise I work in the ship dock at Amazon's new SMF1 Fulfillment center near the Sacramento International Airport. I help load the trucks with packages etc.

@Shupec Welcome to the club! You’ve come upon the best gaming community online so enjoy your stay!
Also, which Uncharted is your favorite?

Jaz007

Shupec

Thanks.
It's Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception.
I like this part the most for Cooperation mode, with a friend spent many hours trying to win at least one stage.
Edit: Of course, only on PS3, Sony blocked co-op mode in Uncharted 3 on PS4.

Hi, I'm Andrea and I'm so old I started playing videogames in the late '80s. Lately I've been living with depressive anxiety syndrome which almost ruined my working and social life... Videogames and books work better than many medicine so these are my hobbies. I've also published some short stories and I recently won a contest with a Sci-Fi novel inspired by the lovecraftian mythology.
I discovered Pushsquare in 2011 and I'll never leave this beautiful community!
