London, ONCanada N6A 6K3

Back when I was a kid, my dad bought me an NES. I was around 4 or 5, when I was in London. My first game was Super Mario Bros 3, which I could never beat, but it captured my attention at a really early age. I liked the challenge, and the colourful style fit right in with all the cartoons I was watching. I was taken in by the worlds that they created, at the experiences they provided. They became a huge part of my social life, and I would meet up with friends to play on the consoles our parents bought us. This is all a lot of lip service just to say: the thing that got me into gaming was the sheer fun of it. That grew out into playing D&D 4e with people, but we could never sync up our schedules. The fun that I had with DMing made me want to try more things like it.
D&D, and GURPS are my favourites, even though I've never gotten it off the ground. I'm somewhat new to playing board games, even though I've done a quite bit of reading. I definitely want to try some new things.
Somewhere in the middle!
I game when I can! I have a weird schedule so sometimes it's hard to coordinate things, but I'm always playing something.
Pie. A nice warm apple pie, freshly baked by my mom back in the mountains. You can pretend like pie is healthy, because it (sometimes) has fruit in it! Part of me wants to sway from my answer, thinking of ice cream cake, but then my mind goes to warm apple pie with a spoon of vanilla ice cream on top. Pie.
