When I was a kid, I wanted nothing more than to be Ron Gilbert. I didn't know that, because I was a stupid kid. But I wanted to make The Secret of Monkey Island™. I don't feel that qualification is necessary for wanting to make what is undisputably the best game ever created.
When I was a teenager I discovered (via The Legend of Monkey Island, the best Monkey Island fan site ever created) a site called Fangames.co.uk, where people would submit games they had created. Many of the members were relatively close to my age. By extension I eventually landed with the Adventure Game Studio community.
Given that I have made a name for myself within that community as a programmer (which is a joke seeing as I'm really a novice in real-world languages), people are often surprised to find that I hate playing video games.
Which is funny because I don't. But if you name any video game there's a 99% chance that I haven't played it for any real duration, nevermind completing the storyline. I bought The Walking Dead, of which I have only heard great things, and I've never downloaded any of the setup files.
So, the point of it all is, when I do play games, they piss me off. The graphics piss me off. The puzzles piss me off. The controls piss me off. The stories piss me off. The action sequences piss me off. The enemy spawn rates piss me off. The cheat codes piss me off. I generally can't play any game without finding something about it that pisses me off. Do you?
