I have been gaming for over 30 years and I am die hard Sony Fan for life. My Wife, Family and Friends can certainly testify for this, in fact, I probably sold more Playstation 3 systems than our local retailer. I enjoy being a spokes person for the Playstion family.
I call myself a hard core gamer because It's what I enjoy doing. When you work 50 hours a week then go home and drop another 45 hours in gaming alone, than your a core gamer.
The only thing that disappoints me about gaming is all the negativity from non-gamers, such as; If you're a gamer than you must be overweight, lazy and irresponsible especially for a person my age, I'm 47 years old therefor I hear my share of "Your too old to play" or "grow up". Well last time I check my PS3 box there was no age limit that excluded me. Just because I'm older don't under-estimate me, cause I will still "Gank" you in Fat Princess, or "Frag" you in Battlefield 3...or who knows I might just be-friend you in Journey.
