Welcome to my intro-thread; I noticed these were a thing.
Born in the year of the snake, I grew up fascinated by music. My father had impeccable taste in his music choices, often playing Howlin' Wolf, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, etc. while he would do manly things around the house (see: fixing plumbing). Among my fascinations with music I liked to build things and subsequently discover how things worked. I've heard the story of how I made the doors in the house pulley-operated by other doors in the house when I was at the ripe age of 5. An ever-spongy and absorbent brain I was.
I was roughly 7 and four quarters when I played my first video game. My friend brought over this strange contraption with an orange and gray pistol attached by a cable. The goal of this "video game" was to shoot ducks and yell at a dog when he chuckled at you, or so I gathered. This arrangement progressed until he brought over a game about an italian man getting lost in pipes and finding money. This must have been my father's reasoning for fixing the house's plumbing.
I became equally enthralled by music and video games as I acquired a Super Nintendo Entertainment System, a Gameboy, and my grandmother gave us her old piano for me to play on. I would either be playing Turtles in Time, Pokemon, or Tschaicovsky, the value of any of those being highly debatable. I moved onto the stringed instrument most people know as a guitar the same year I received a Playstation 1; it was my first experience with 3D graphics and Metallica. I recall distinctly enjoying the Final Fantasy series during these years, with much of my interest focused on the lad with the gunblade and facial scar. The introduction to that game spoke to me on a deep level. It was at this time that I discovered Music put to Video Games in online videos; typically dubbed AMVs I enjoyed these way more than I should have and I subsequently became obsessed with Dragon Ball Z for a few years.
Once I got into my teenage years I purchased a Playstation 2 to continue my love of JRPGs and around the time I beat Rogue Galaxy I was given Halo and an Xbox by my brother who had no need of either anymore. A year later I inherited his drum set as well when he joined the military. Now I compose kill frenzies on my Xbox 360 just as much as I compose unknown Grammy-winning scores on my instruments in Ableton Live.
PS: I wrote this on a type-writer while smoking a cigar in a bubble-bath.
