As Silent Hill Fan.
As Video gamer.
In my early childhood (5) I used to play Pac-Man and other Atari games which belonged to my father. Later (8) my uncle used to take me to the arcades to play Super Mario Bros.
But officially I'm a videogamer since I was 10 when I first played Mortal Kombat in the arcades. I'll never forget that experience: Those digitized graphics from real actors and that gory sound, along with the charismatic characters and fighting arenas. That moment definitely carved my existence.
Video games have taught me to think logically & strategically for every real-life situation and it's thanks to them that I've learned English (my country's mother-tongue is Spanish). Many of them also taught me good values, which I couldn't find within my social environment, nor in my mom's soap-operas, nor in most movies/series back then (nor now).
As an old-school gamer it's been very hard for me to watch the entire industry developing more casual games in recent years.
The consoles I own are:
Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo 64, Play Station, Play Station 2, Nintendo Gamecube, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360.
I'm a.k.a. JAG_TxelUM. I'm really good playing Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros Melee, Mortal Kombat Mythologies Sub-Zero, Devil May Cry series, Castlevania series, Dance Dance Revolution series, Marvel Vs Capcom series and I personally enjoy playing Warcraft III (as well as DotA), Final Fantasy X, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 & 3, Guitar Hero & Rock Band series.
I've also beaten every game within the following sagas (including old-consoles, portable devices, etc.):
I'm currently in 1st place worldwide* (out of more than one million competitors) in the online Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of two Worlds ranking. I'm also working on breaking the non-TAS speed-run World Record for the game: Mortal Kombat Mythologies Sub-Zero. I am as well as fulfilling one of my life's many dreams: Developing my own videogame.

As a Normal Person.
My full name is José Andrés Guzmán Tórrez. I was born in La Paz - Bolivia (I live here too). I'm currently studying System Engineering at Universidad Catolica, and English language at Centro Boliviano Americano. I'm currently single, and although I was kind of shy when I was 10 years old I became a womanizer because an older woman broke my heart when I was 16 ^^. I'm also skilled on handling computer and electronic devices (both hardware and software).
I like browsing the internet as a hobby, going to the movies, and going out with my friends on weekends to a club to dance and meet new people or to a pub from time to time to have a cigar and a couple of drinks. I used to play the guitar way often than I do nowadays. I like to read a good book under the rain (it doesn't matter to me if it's a real book or an e-book). I love Coke (the drink not the other one -_-) and listen to music outloud while singing in my room (also in the shower ^^).
Sometimes and with no apparent reason, I just take my car out with me and drive randomly while listening to music and thinking about how good is to be alive, even on those bad moments when everything turns into a dead-end. I just hope this Almighty Entity enlightens my path and grants me with enough time to accomplish all the things I've come to do to this world. (Of course I mean God, but I don't like generalizing about it since I only believe in God, not in any men-made religion).
I love to live every day of my life as it would be the last. Guess I gotta do this just in case ;)
