Hey I'm Chris, live in NH USA and am 29, married to my wonderful wife for 6 1/2 years. I didn't grow up with the gaming consoles much, adopt father HATED gaming. My bro and I would often have to go to other people's houses and be "baby sat" even as teens and we took this time to game with friends.
My first real game was the original Diablo that my bro got as a burned disc from his tutor and smuggled home.
Than we got a Gameboy, that Travis was given aby a school mate and smuggled that home.
Than a friend has a Sega and a few games, and they gave it to us, at that point my adopt father couldn't stop us lol. So we had sega for years.
My fav game was Desert Storm on Sega. I was more of a PC guy though. My favs on there were Diablo, StarCraft, and online Runescape (yup my first MMO lol).
Than I met my wife (re-met (Went to school together for abit)), and she got me into Oblivion, she had to unlock a really hard chest, and asked me to do it and I got it first try and never played the game before. Than she got me into WoW and we played off and on until about 6 month - 1 year ago. Again she should be the fishing thing and first try before i'd even played the game, fished out some hard to get fish.
Than we got the x-box, and we had fun with Viva Pianta, Mirrors Edge, Farming Sim and other neat games. My fav series was Assassins Creed. Oh and had RDR for atime since it was like the best cowboy game. Probably still is.
Than got the x-box One, and we got a collection of 30 Retro games (on one disc, for 30 bucks), than I got into Battlefield, BF4 and BFHL were my fav
We got rid of the x-box 1 when we "Gave up" gaming but kept the 360 and than we slowing started getting back into it, it mostly pc and tablets now lol.
My bud and I got some way narly ideas for gaming but I got to learn C++ if someone could teach me, cause we are going to need a crazy engine with 3D capability.
IF anyone wants to help us with our "Dream Game" it'd be appreciated.
I am very new to game making hence the Stencyl, did all crash course and read first like 5 help chapters 2 days ago and been practicing since
