Name: Rob Hazelby
Age: 30
Location: Bristol
First Gaming Experience: Was on the way down to Devon with the folks for my summer holidays, and we stopped off at a roadside cafe. Here, I saw and played on my first arcade game - Space Invaders. It must have been around 1979/1980, and I needed a chair to reach the controls and see the screen.
Favourite Computers: Spectrum/Amiga
Favourite Consoles:: SNES/Saturn
These days...: I'm more into my 'twitch' gaming due to limited gaming time, so often fire up an emulator or play on one of my arcade machines.
