I was young and lonely and the story about learning to love really stuck with me as the narrative was way past my age bracket, that never quite being able to understand or deconstruct the narrative caused me to play it every year or so until I was much older.
It remains my favorite game of all time but most importantly it introduced me to the Final Fantasy series which has been a rock in my life since discovered.

It’s a series I’m passionate about, that had me analyzing and making critical comparisons, thinking constructively about games and eventually lead to my choice of choosing game development as a career.
Over the years I’ve found studios and game series I’ve really liked; Team Ico, Atlus(SMT), Suda51/Grasshopper, H.Kojima and that have all inspired me in ways that I hope to make games one day.
