I have loved video games since we got our 486 in (I think) 1992. But I don't consider myself a hardcore gamer as I rarely dedicate myself to a game. I have quite a short attention span and play generally multiplayer games like CSGO and Hearthstone where I can play for short bouts and then put them down.
started playing games when i was 4 and its my main hobby so yeah, i would say i've been a gamer from the start. Pretty much all my other interests revolve around games such as art, reading material, discussion topics, research etc etc.
