I started gaming back in the 80s, but Qrally really kicked it off for me. This game rocked. But then Quake came out. Holy smokes, that game was addictive. I am a true Quake fan and love the games. I later moved on to Toca Touring Car Championship and several other games. Counter-Strike came out as an addon for Half-life (I actually own 2 hard copies of Half-life, 1 being in it's original wrapping, still). I have played so many games over the years, even World of Warcraft, which I find to be an outstanding boring game.
The game that truely made it stick for me is Rocket League. I started almost right after it went free to play and I have played it since february 2021. The game got to be so boring in august of 2021 that I almost quit. But, I found a video over on Sunlesskhan's Youtube channel, involving the most hated Rocket League player in the world. His name is Woody! Now, Woody has the magic touch that makes people rage after 5 seconds into the match. I found another video of him, where he actually talked, and I could hear how calm he was and how much fun he had playing this game, making other people rage and turn into these toxic radioactive plants. So I started grinding Woody videos, finding out that Rocket Sledge pretty much wrote the demolition book, so I started watching his videos. Now, it took me a whole year playing on keyboard and mouse to reach Champion 1 div 2. After 450 hrs. I have since then moved over to PS4 controller and 24,000 demolitions later I am enjoying the game more than what I did a year ago.
Back in 1997, at the age of 14, I started doing Shotokan karate with my father and brother, training under chief lead trainer. Graduated to 8th kyu (yellow belt). After 21 years, summer of 2018, I started back up again. I trained under some of the best in the country. 6th JKA black belt, 13 years of coaching the national team, 3rd JKA black belt who also trained Jean Claude Van-damme in Italy. I had to quit during COVID-19 because of financial issues.
