Video Gaming

by WedgeDoc

Geek Syndicate The Next LevelI consider myself to be a gamer, spending quite a few of my free hours in a digital world of some kind. Over on the Geek Syndicate website, I’m one of the game reporters / reviewers and I am also the co-host of their video game podcast, The Next Level. I’ve been recording the podcast since the seventh episode, back in 2010. Being part of the site and podcast has been a great spur to my gaming and has led to opportunities to visit Eurogamer Expo as a Press Visitor and to interview the event organisers. It’s also meant I get the occasional review copy of a game, which is always nice.

A Bit of History

Geek Room ConsolesBack in the dark days that were the nineteen nineties, I was mainly a PC gamer and this followed me into the early noughties while at university. During this time, with my own funds available, I got into consoles. Over the years, I’ve owned:

  • Commodore 64;
  • Various PC systems!
  • Nintendo 64;
  • Gameboy Advance SP;
  • Nintendo Gamecube;
  • Xbox;
  • Wii;
  • Xbox 360;
  • Nintendo DS;
  • Playstation 3;
  • Nintendo 3DS;
  • Xbox One.

Primarily, I’m into Role Play games and action-adventure games such as The Legend of Zelda series. There’s not much I don’t play, though. Except sports. The closest to a sports game I play is Mario Kart. Or the (very) occasional beat-em-up such as Soul Calibur.

I’ve spent many, many hours in Massively Multiplayer Online games. From Ultima Online through Star Wars: Galaxies to Guild Wars 2 and Elder Scrolls Online, I’ve dipped into most of the big name games. To be honest, I wish I had more time to dedicate to online gaming or even gaming in general.


For those interested in such things, here’s a gamercard or two.
