COULD YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR HISTORY WITH GAMING, PRIOR TO LANDI THE ROLE OF JD FENIX
“My first console was the Commodore 64 or I’d play Links 386 Pro Golf. Then I upgraded to the NES and the SNES. I don’t think I ever owned a MegaDrive, but I remember playing Mortal Combat over at my friends. I was a huge fan of CIV And SimCity throughout the years. I have vivid memories of playing Tekken, in which I remember beating the Australian champion one round at a Timezone one year. More recently, I’ve been playing Overwatch and I’ve been addicted to a mobile game called Tap Titans (Which I hate myself for, as it’s not a real game). Obviously, right now I’ve just started playing Gears of War 4 and I’m absolutely loving it.”
