My name is Ryan, I'm a graphic Designer, and head of my company Roshambo Industries. We focus on web design and development, but also are part of the print, and 3D animation fields. I hope to expand the company into video game design in the future as well (so future game designers, and programmers, WE NEED TO NETWORK).
I've been playing games since I was 4, so I got a late start on it. I always had to play on my friend's and cousin's NES, and later their their SNES since my parents wouldn't get me any consoles of my own. I begged them until I was six, and one Friday afternoon my dad brought home an NES that he had found in his storage garage with Super Mario Bros. Duck Hunt, World Class Track Meet, two controllers, a light gun, and a running pad. I was hooked, so my mom decided to set limits on my play time, I whined enough and she eventually gave up. I was then a free gamer, and started buying all the game I wanted from garage sales. Super Mario Bros. 2, and 3, The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, and many others fell into my hands. A few years pass and my game collection expands, and my NES begins to fail, and all I'm left with was my Game Boy so that Christmas I get my N64 bundled with Pokemon Stadium, and got The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Mario 64 since those were my favorite games. That's also the time when I was first introduced to shooters, with Jet Force Gemini, and also RTS when my aunt let me play Age of the Empire on her PC. The rest probably goes as any other gamer's so I'll leave you with that.
