About me and my gaming

Hi, welcome to my ‘about me’ page!  I’m glad you stopped by.  I go by TopSpot123 on the internet, but I’ll be happy to answer to TopSpot or simply Top.  This site is sort of an off-shoot of my YouTube channel.  In case you haven’t seen it, here’s a link.

I would like to tell you more about myself.

A founding member of the Grey Beard Gaming Club (TM), I have been gaming for essentially my whole life.  My first home console was a Colecovision with Adam, purchased for holiday 1983.  I got good enough with Donkey Kong that I could roll the scoreboard over multiple times.  I continued accumulating systems and games, mostly second hand, throughout my middle and high school years.

Like many others, I never intended to start a collection.  I just loved my games and kept adding more until one day I woke up and it was a collection.  I don’t accumulate games just to inflate my numbers.  Every game purchase is carefully decided based off of criteria such as; game quality, industry evolutionary importance, and my personal gaming preferences.

Video gaming is not my only gaming love though.  I have a large place in my heart for table top games of all types, especially board, card, and dice games.  I’ve amassed a large collection of mostly retro board games too.  I love to investigate what is new and trending in this field.

I have a passion for gaming, but I don’t consider myself to be ‘hard core’.  I’ve beaten and 100% completed hundreds of titles, but I keep the other aspects of my life and my responsibilities in balance.  I simply can’t dedicate the time to this hobby that I once could.  I own dozens of games that I have not yet played, but I am patient, and each game will get its due.

I play nearly all game genres on nearly all systems, but I have preferences.  I favor platformers, 2D slightly over 3D.  I have always favored Nintendo.  I am not afraid to say I love gaming ‘gimmicks’.  Cameras, motion controls, 3D, VR, I love checking these things out, even if I end up going back to standard controllers.

The few game types that I play very little are sports and RPG’s.  I also don’t play the worlds biggest competitive games such as COD, Overwatch, DOTA, or Fortnite.  I am fascinated with online gaming, but I essentially never play online.  Growing up I was always the best player in my small circle, but online gaming has shown me that I am inadequate to compete with real dedicated skill.

I am generally happy, up beat, and an optimistic person.  I am also private and an introvert.  I don’t have many online or gaming friends and I hope my blog might help me make a few connections.

You can see more about my gaming collection and playing stats below.  Feel free to send a friend request, I generally always accept.

Thanks for joining me.
