Starting with games under the shooter category, with titles like: “Call of Duty”, “Destiny”. Later switching to the mobs category with “League of Legends”, and switching from console to PC. Although he believes himself a PC gamer; he sometimes misses console and it’s controls.
Through time, he has experienced different games and tried to play new categories that may result interesting for him. He has always consider himself a “competitive” type of player; but, it sometimes causes him get stressed, so he plays more “casually” to the point of not playing to loose exhaustion.
For him, all games are perfect in their own way, but there are definitely some games that make him loose his mind, games like “Overwatch”. Of course, there are some games that don’t interest him like the famous “Fortnite”. But as he says: “Everyone has their own niche, and can find a game that’s perfect for them. Or they can make a game that reflects their passion.”
Although games have made and have great interaction in his life, games have great downfalls to his health, both, mental and physical.
