|"Chun Li Looks Good For 48 Years Old!!"|
When you come across the amount of awesome people I do within the video games community you tend to want to know their background and how they originally got into video gaming.
My favourite stories from people are the ones where they reminisce about early video games memories as I just love to wallow in the nostalgia of being blown away by a NES, SNES or SEGA Mega Drive.
To me and a whole generation of awesome dudes and dudettes these were the formative years of our love affair with video games.
Today I would like to introduce you all the Bethany who is the latest member of the Games Freezer family.
Bethany has agreed to share with us all her video games life story so far and I know a lot of this will bring smiles to all those people who were 80's & 90's kids....

Wrong life story...........
Gaming has been a part of my life for my whole life.
My earliest memory of video games was when I was about four years old, watching my older brother and his best friend play Super Mario Brothers on the NES.
There was a pool outside, and I stood in the doorway, soaked, enthralled, begging to play. And was promptly and completely ignored.
We had a PC with games on it, but nothing like Mario Bros. or Duck Hunt. A few years later the neighborhood boys, all at least four years my senior, had a Street Fighter 2 Turbo competition, bracket style, against one another.
My brother let me enter as a joke. Much, much later that day I beat all of them, at age 7, playing only with Chun- Li. I was hooked.
Mario Kart, Super Mario World, Parasite Eve- whatever I could get my hands on to play, I did. In high school I had emulators on my PC for all the games my brother never let me play (and plenty more that weren't released in the US).
I remember my first day of pre-calc in high school, and I had just gotten a new TI-83 Plus: Silver Edition. My teacher commented that I must really love math to have such a unique calculator, and once he discovered that I spent most of my class time playing Street Fighter or Zelda, he moved me to the back of the room.
In college I discovered GTA, played CoD and Rock Band on the Xbox 360, and these days I toggle between a Wii, a NES emulator for original carts, a PS4, PS3, and my newest addition, the green machine gaming PC.
Now, as an adult, I can say collectively I enjoy both retro gaming and modern gaming, with the SNES being my favorite retro console, and the PS4 being my current modern fave.
Most loved retro games: TMNT 2, Super Mario World, Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Sailor Moon R Side Scroller & Sailor Moon Another Story
Favorite modern games: The Borderlands Series, Plants Versus Zombies Garden Warfare 1 & 2
Video games opened worlds for me, within their stories and outside the confines of graphic story telling. I'm amazed at how many people, many introverted like myself, that I've met simply through a mutual love of games. It's an honor to be a part of the gaming community.
When I'm not playing games, I'm raising two little boys. My kids are growing up with games and learning hand- eye coordination, spatial awareness, problem solving skills, and how to enjoy fiction through video games.
They'll have a mom that knows you can't pause an online game, and I have boys who are better drivers than me in Mario Kart and Battlefield."
