Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been interested in gaming ever since, only stepping away briefly during his college years. But he was removed after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping push the Guitar Hero series into its heyday. Ozzie has become a huge fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge fan of anything that has a good narrative and convincing behind. Because what are video games if you can’t enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
