What It Means to be a Games Writer

iLLGaming writer,T.Ray writes:
"I have done quite a lot of things as a kid to live my life. Writing short stories, singing in a band, painting my classroom with illustrations from the text book (thanks to my father’s genes) and other stuff related to school and life. Luckily I was raised as a 90s kid, so my eye for games was totally different. As a kid in India, I was taught by my elders that video games are bad for life, simply because you lose focus on real things, you over exert on your eyes and you tend to become forgetful. I would really doubt as a 26 year old man that these symptoms actually have a base in video gaming.
My earliest recollections of video gaming were sitting in front of a DOS computer at my father’s work desk in an advertising agency and playing countless hours of Prince of Persia or Paratrooper. My father would directly pick me up from my school, I’d hold his hand and walk into his office like I owned the darned place, and the very menu screen of the video game would bring joy to my eyes. These days you’ve got kids complaining about graphics and gameplay and stuff, those days games used to be based on a repetitive command. Cut that smile Vaas Montenegro!" (Journey, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, The Last Of Us, Xbox 360)
