I'm an engineer. I play with electronic bits and gubbins. I've held the hellfire of 110VAC in my hand. :/ I love to take things apart, put them back together, and see if it all works again when I'm done. Been improving my success rate on that ever since I was old enough to hold a screwdriver~ My analytical mind rewards me with a crazy amount of endorphins if I let it stare at mechanisms and machinations until it groks their secrets. I'm pretty much Heroes' villain, Sylar. Without the skull-splitting. For now.
I don't just play a bunch of games, I love to dissect and analyze them. I nerd out over something that redefines a genre or has a great new way of approaching something (read: Katamari Damacy and controller input?). I expect I'll pump out a Minecraft or Candy Crush aaaannnny day now... yup.. aaannny day.
