Hi Everyone I'm new to Caffeine Gaming - really thankful to Will for giving me the opportunity - and I thought I'd just say hello to all you contributors and a little bit about myself. My name's Jack and I've been playing video games since I was little. The first game I remember playing was Super Mario Brothers on the SNES - not a bad one to start off with. Currently I own ten different consoles and plenty of games for each of them, and I play as often as I can. Being low on funds means I can't play all the latest releases, but I'm more than happy with what I've got to play with right now. Some of my all-time best favourites are (in no particular order): Super Smash Brothers, Arkham Asylum, Pokemon Stadium, Alan Wake, Crash Bandicoot, the original Resident Evil, Injustice 2, The Simpsons Hit and Run, Monkey Island and just about anything with Mario in it. I'm also the proud owner of a 90,000 score on Donkey Kong (I have proof for any doubters). I gave up writing in 2012 for personal reasons, but got back into it after losing my job and have been forging onwards with it for a while now. I've wanted to write about games having reads tons of games magazines in my early years (I was not a popular child at all) and here I am. I submitted my first piece today, hopefully it'll be up on the website soon! Outside of games I also write about film and basketball, a game I was heavily involved with til recently. I still run a website about the sport which can be viewed here for anyone who's interested: http://bit.ly/2rXYv8I So that, in short, is me. I look forward to working for and with all the contributors to the site - I'm a very collaborative person and am always open to others' ideas and am always happy to give feedback or assistance. My door's always open. Here's to CaffeineGaming!
