I am Jamiemonster. Sometimes just Jamie. I'm your average twenty five year old gay man. I play video games, I read books, I see movies. I take photos sometimes too. I'm married to a wonderful man. I'm from Glasgow, Scotland.
Bitten by a monster as a child
I was born on June 28, 1988. I don't think much happened that day. Bros was number one that weekend on the charts. It was probably raining.
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return.
I am a big lover of music. If I'm going somewhere, I'm taking my headphones. Music can evoke so many emotions. It can teleport you back in time to relive a specific moment. It can make you believe in a better future. My music taste is pretty scattered. In my iTunes library I have everything from Keane to Kelly Clarkson, from Bastille to Backstreet Boys and everything in between.
My earliest memory of gaming is playing on the Sega Master System. I don't remember what the game was but it was something with a fox in it. For Christmas 1997 my brother, sister and I received an N64. I probably couldn't even calculate how many hours we spent playing Goldeneye and Mario Kart, good times indeed. I went solo from there on out with first a PS2 then Xbox. The current generation of consoles are definitely my favourite though in particular the Xbox 360.
Favourite Game: Borderlands 2
I bought a 360 a couple months after launch and it is by far my favourite console. From Halo to Gears of War to Forza to GTAV the 360 has kept me entertained for many an hour.

Favourite Game: Killzone 2
I was late to the PS3 party, only purchasing one in 2010 when the price dropped. Since then I have only purchased a handful of games but the Playstation Plus program has kept me well stocked. My first next gen purchase will probably be a PS4 over an Xbox One.

Favourite Game: Ticket To Ride
While I do own a PS Vita and Nintendo DS most of my mobile gaming has been on my iPhone or iPad simply because I always have them on me. The iPhone in particular has served me well as a quick burst of gaming on the go.
In June of 2007 when I was at a loss for what I could spend my birthday pennies on, my husband Tim suggested a digital camera. After much consideration I purchased a Canon Powershot. After six months of tinkering deeper and deeper with settings I upgraded to a Canon DSLR. The rest, as they say, is history.
