First Post! Meet New Gaming Steve Contributor, Robert Gauss
Hello! I’m a new contributor to the Gaming Steve site and as you can guess my name is Robert Gauss or “Robbway” on the forums. I’m a lifetime gamer and have been following video games since they were commercially available (think Telstar, not Nintendo) and I play almost every type of game there is. I also have very strong opinions on games, ratings, and censorship, as well as a pretty good BS meter when it comes to online
My games interests are vast and varied. I like classic old arcade games, new games, shooters, tactical, pinball, rhythm, casual, and a few genres that aren’t even around anymore. I don’t particularly like sports titles, but I make an exception with racing games and I play on every system currently available (and a few that aren't). All of this, plus I have non-video gaming interests such as cards, board, and pen & paper games.
In addition, I'm a member of the Entertainment Consumers Association since its inception in 2006 and I have high hopes for that organization. I’m against governmental regulation of gaming, blaming video games (or any other single influence) for societal ills, and censorship. I’m a very pro-personal responsibility gamer.
As you can tell I'm fairly opinionated and I plan on giving my opinions on practically everything. They are often very biased views of current events, but that’s the nature of blogging. If all you read on the internet was unbiased, it would be a very dull place, indeed!
