No-nonsense gaming info from a fellow lifelong video game fan – the way your mom used to make it!
Video games have always been a part of my life – through ups and downs. Especially downs! Losing myself in the game world is a great way to take my mind off things when the outside world gets too scary.
I’ve been playing video games since the early 1980s when I saved up and bought a Commodore 64 (the breadbin version) with a tape recorder.
Later I saved up and also purchased the 5¼” floppy disk drive. Wow, the speed was impressive!
The C64 is a fantastic computer. I spent hours playing games, but I also enjoyed programming simple adventure games in BASIC.
My favorite games on C64 were Commando, Sid Meyer’s Pirates, the Great Giana Sisters, Last Ninja, Bubble Bubble, and OutRun.
Later I got an Amiga 500, where I loved playing games like Sensible Soccer and Shadow of the Beast.
Since those early 8-bit and 16-bit days, I’ve played video games on several PCs and consoles and, of course, also on smartphones.
I also have a keen interest in music and play several instruments.
My big interest in video games and music eventually landed me a job as a lecturer at the University of Copenhagen, where I taught interactive video game audio and music.
I’ve also written content for magazines about everything from the chip music scene to the video game business and interviewed several game developers.
