Who are you and what do you do?

I think it's time for us to get to know each other. We sit here and bicker and argue over "GAMES" and as silly as that is, we don't really all know much about each other aside from what consoles we favor. So - I think it would be a good time to take a little break from the insanity and just get to know each other.
