The very first video game I got with it was Metal Gear Solid 2: Kids of Liberty. I keep in mind playing that game for hours and not making any progress due to the fact that I didn’t know what I was doing. It wasn’t up until a good friend of mine assisted me comprehend how the video game was played that I was able to beat it although the story was way too made complex for six year old me to comprehend. The graphics and the gameplay where so incredible that I knew this was a pastime I ‘d never give up.”
Do you have a favourite title or series that you play?

However, what’ll be my preferred title from here on out would be Red Dead Redemption 2 – that game, in my viewpoint, is a work of art. The graphics are fantastic. The story is a heartbreaking tale of hooligans on the run and the gameplay is a terrific mix of pulse pounding action and cowboy life simulation. For my preferred series I ‘d say I have 3 – The Grand Theft Vehicle series, the God of War series and the Persona series.”
