About Me

Welcome to The Intellectual Gamer! 

My Story

I’ve grown up always loving games. My very first game console was a Super Nintendo, with Donkey Kong Country as my first game. Ever since then, I’ve always loved spending my time (way too much of my time) trying out new games.

Gaming was how my brothers and sisters stayed close growing up. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters, and we used to all game together. Super Smash Brothers on the Nintendo 64. My goodness yes. Mario Party? YES. GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, Command and Conquer… My family has enjoyed so many games together and I have many great memories of us coming up with new unique ways of beating each other.

The days of me enjoying multiplayer games with my brothers and sisters are long gone now that we’ve all “grown up”. That doesn’t mean we don’t ever game together. I’ll try to drag my brothers into the pits of Starcraft 2 as often as I can, but most of my time is just spent playing games by myself with what little free time I have left after life’s responsibilities.

Life, keeping us all busy, means I can’t devote an unlimited amount of time playing games. I gotta make money first, then fun later. This means that I need to pick what games to enjoy carefully, because my free time is quite limited. I’m sure I’m not the only one in this situation.

The Intellectual Gamer

The purpose of The Intellectual Gamer is for me to pass on my experiences enjoying the games I love. Sometimes, I play a game for a few moments just to try it, but other times, I find a gem that I just can NOT drop. I’m going to write about my journeys through these games, giving you an open view to what they are like, and why I enjoy them so much.

I also loooove theorycrafting ideas and putting them to the test in the games I play. I’ll be writing up tutorials and guides and maybe even creating some fun challenges for my followers to enjoy their gaming time even more.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out. 

All the best,
