My name is Lindsey Wachs, and I’m a 21-year-old senior at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, majoring in English with an emphasis in creative writing. I play all sorts of video games, but my absolute favorite video game will always be the classic SNES title EarthBound. I am also an avid fan of BioShock, The Legend of Zelda series, the Gears of War series, The Sims 2 and 3, as well as Portal and Portal 2. For me, storytelling is one of the best parts about video games, and I think they can be just as memorable as any novel or film. I’ll admit that I’m not the most talented gamer out there, but I love being a gamer and I love this medium of entertainment.
