"My father is a gigantic f*cking nerd.
For some background: he majored in History in college, collects minor league hockey jerseys, loves everything about every major war that has ever taken place, and collects figures and models.
He's also a pretty big gamer, though maybe he got that from me. My very first console was the NES back in 1993. It was also my father's and we would get in frequent bouts over who got the next turn in Duck Hunt (dad usually won). But, games were never truly a part of the relationship between my dad and me until we got a SNES a few years later. That's where my dad and I found a love for fighting games, and, most importantly, the much-hated Shaq-Fu."
