About FantasyMeister

FantasyMeister is an old gamer. Born in the same year that development on ARPANET began, his pre-internet years were spent falling off skateboards and scrounging 10p pieces for the arcades. He got his first computer at age 14 (Sinclair ZX81) and his dream of becoming a bedroom coder were shattered by getting hooked on games instead. Sega, Sony and Microsoft are all subsequently to blame for his complete withdrawal from the outside world. He has a PC with Steam, an Xbox 360, a PS2, a PS4, a PSP, a 10.1" Android tablet, a PSVita, a Gameboy (somewhere) and a pile of shame so high that even Sir Ranulph Fiennes hasn't scaled it. He has a tendency to be gripped by life-sapping RPGs, and when he's not doing that he's entering competitions to win even more games.
