MOST MEMORABLE GAMING MOMENT
“I have many fond video game memories: repeating battles a thousand times to beat a final boss, perfecting a headshot with great satisfaction, “celebrating” a fatality, beating the best time or record, getting lost in a fantastic story, evolving a village into a megalopolis, managing troops and fleets, playing marathons with friends… but all these memories have always been accompanied by the curiosity to understand any game mechanics and contaminations between genres.”
