An Introduction to Taylor Gamble of Retrowave Gaming



Hey there readers,

Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Taylor, I’m the owner, creator and sole content writer for Retrowave Gaming.

I’m a Criminology graduate from the UK and I play my fair share of video games, probably obvious as I am now writing for a gaming blog, but hey ho. I hope to be able to provide an alternate perspective into games, new and old, as well as current news and controversies. So many controversies…

I suppose I should go into what games I play and my overall gaming background, so you can see where I’m coming from perspective-wise. Welp, I started playing games when I was very young. I have fond memories of playing Sonic on the Sega Megadrive and then later games such as Croc on the PS1. I’ve been primarily a PlayStation player ever since I could hold a controller, with a couple of times where I’ve dipped my toe into the proverbial pond of Xbox gaming. In recent years I have also been swayed by the technical advantages of PC gaming and got my first proper rig in 2015. However, I always stuck by my PlayStation roots alongside my forays into the PC world.

In terms of my game preferences I am definitely a single player/story-based game-type person, although I do enjoy multiplayer games as well. If I were to pick a franchise which I would say I was a fanboy of through and through, it would definitely be the Mass Effect series. I played the series from start to finish during a particularly hard point in my life and it truly cemented my love for games with great characters and great story. This led me to other games and series such as Uncharted, Heavy Rain, Borderlands, BioShock, Persona, Fallout, The Witcher and many more.

In recent weeks, I have found more enjoyment playing older retro games than many new releases. I've been playing games that I missed out on when i was younger, such as Ape Escape, Silent Hill, MediEvil, Wild Arms, Crash Bandicoot, Legend of Zelda and many older Mario games.

I also have a multiplayer side, including time spent in games such as League of Legends (so much wasted time and money). Counter Strike, Arma and, more recently, Rainbow Six Siege. I would have listed CoD from back in the day, but I think its safe to assume we all had our Call of Duty phase, right?

I feel like I’ve probably rambled enough and should continue working on more content for the site. More will come in the following weeks, I hope you enjoy reading and using my site.
