Gamer of the Week: GlassyDoor

Allow us to introduce you to GlassyDoor (we don’t know why either…).  On the Xbox 360 SA Community Forums, he goes by the slightly catchier – and more ominous – moniker of grimreaper.  However, the real public service announcement here is that he is a zombie killer.  We don’t really know if we can find it in our decaying hearts to see past that.

Go ahead.  Introduce yourself.  Don’t be shy.

Hi everyone my name is Joshua (Xbox 360 GT – GlassyDoor), I was born in Durban and currently still living there. I have a passion for gaming.

What’s you platform of choice?  Why?

Xbox 360, as I feel it has the best games and graphics; I feel it is the best platform on the market.

Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?

Yes, vaguely, it was when I was about 5 years old, sitting on my dad’s lap, playing Doom on the PC.

How long have you been gaming?

Since I was 5, I’m now 19 so that’s 14 years now.

When do you think you’ll stop gaming?

I don’t think that day will ever come; I will game to my death.

Are you a serious gamer?  Or do you enjoy a laugh?

I’m mostly a serious gamer, but I sometimes play just for fun when I play games like FIFA.
