I have grown up with games consoles in my house constantly.
In fact the night I was born my mum says she played on the Sega Megadrive to distract herself from labour pains! My mum is a big Nintendo fan while my dad likes the Playstation. As soon as I was old enough to join in I did. My favourite games as a child were dance mat games, and I liked platform games too, as well as games like Animal Crossing and the Petz series.
I'm in my early teens now, and these days I play mostly on my DS, because it's portable. This means I can sneak up to bed with it and play late at night after I'm meant to be asleep, but don't tell my parents! I play a lot of platforms such as Mario, Princess Peach, but I also like role-play games like the Sims. I'm pretty good at most things on the Wii, especially Warioware mini games and Mario party mini games! I still love rhythm and music games like the bongo drums for Gamecube, Singstar on the playstation, and Guitar Hero, but I mainly play these with friends rather than on my own.
I'm looking forward to writing a bit more about my favourite games so that people can read about them from a younger person's perspective.
Here are my game reviews.
With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.
But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
