Name: Lauren Tarascio
Birthday: April 7
I have 3 older brothers who played tons of video games that I watched, pretty much as movies, growing up. As a little girl I played Mickey Mania and other gay games such as that. But when Lunar was released on Sega CD, I started to see video games in a whole new light.
I was always a “casual” gamer. Although, when Fable 2 came out I did play right through that in 3 days. But that is not my norm. I’m generally too busy to play as much as I would like. Things like work and real life get in the way…. ugh.
