Gaming became Mark's hobby of choice with the original Playstation. He has developed a penchant for action, adventure, platforming and RPGs over the years since, and a preference for anything with a strong story or solid brawler gameplay. His favourite game series include Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear, Jak & Daxter, and Tekken.
When he isn’t gaming or writing for NZGamer.com, Mark likes nothing better than watching a good film, though admittedly an awful one can be just as entertaining.
