Gamer Profile

Video Games logo

This profile is for giving readers a way to know of my personal preferences in video games, which then translates to how I review them. It is important to understand where the reviewer comes from and how it relates to the readers’ own preferences and experiences.

Preferences can vary over time, so this profile is subject to change in the future. It is one of the unavoidable elements in the process of objectifying subjective experiences.
