Description
Shaun is a Yorkshire-born, Brighton-dwelling man who has played games all his life, and suspects that for much of that time they have also been playing him. He could never afford your fancy arcades or consoles as a child, and consequently knows PC games pretty damn well. He's now making up for this well-spent youth by collecting stupid old consoles that were rubbish and no one likes, recent acquisitions being an N-Gage, a Philips CD-i and a 3DO. Having recently abandoned a ten year career in software testing, Shaun works as a freelance writer. He doesn't pay himself to write here.
