Yaroslav I., chief editor and author of articles since October 2017
I am a gambling addict with experience, I play computer games, since the times of the USSR (Agat PC). In those days, they were simple: snake, arkanoid, tetris. However, finding a free computer with games was very difficult. A real crowd of gamblers like me lined up to him. But it should be noted that at that time it was possible to play a lot in Wait a minute, Autoslalom and other games of the Electronics series.
Then Dendy and Sega game consoles firmly entered my life, with their legendary ones: Super Mario, Tanks (Battle City), Dune 2, Mortal Kombat, Rock n ’Roll Racing, and others. A huge advantage of these consoles was the ability to play together. But some games were very difficult to complete even under these conditions. Therefore, only using the console emulator, I easily passed them.
Then Sony Play Station appeared, and then computer clubs. My friends and I rented the whole club for the night, so it came out much cheaper. Until the morning we were playing the legendary Counter-Strike, Half Life, Heroes of Might and Magic III, Quake 3, StarCraft. In the morning we went to school to sleep)))
At 20, I finally saved up for my first PC:
- CPU: 850 MHz,
- RAM: 256 MB,
- HDD: 10 GB,
- OS: Windows 98.
After that, the world of computer games opened before me in all its breadth. However, the virtual world could not completely absorb me. In the first place, my studies, friends, family and even a part-time job also remained in the first place.
Full-fledged mobile games became available with the advent of android phones. The phone made it possible to play anywhere, anytime. Quite quickly, android games in terms of quality and capabilities not only caught up with, but also surpassed their counterparts on the PC.
When I had the opportunity to work first as an author and then as an editor of articles on the Wise Geek portal, I agreed without hesitation. After all, this is a great opportunity to turn your favorite business into work.
From my own experience I know that it is very difficult for players to find useful information on the Internet. Therefore, the main criterion of the new article is the usefulness for the player. Many games are entire universes, so the articles about them are huge. High-quality design is a prerequisite for such articles so that readers can quickly and easily find the information they need.
The list of my works is quite extensive and constantly updated. You can see all my articles and read them at this link.
