Our IT Radix Team Members Love Video Games!

Video games have exploded in popularity over the last few decades and have come a long way since Atari’s Pong was released in 1972. They’re exciting, invigorating, and not just for kids—the average age of a gamer is 35! Today, there are over five million games in existence and a multitude of genres that everyone can enjoy.

Not surprisingly, we have a lot of video gamers on our IT Radix team.

Ashleigh finds video games fun and challenging. While her favorites are The Legend of Zelda games, she likes just about everything… you name it and she’ll play it! Dan P loves the Platformer genre and how they are like a puzzle. He’s been playing Super Mario Bros. since he was 5 years old—still his favorite! For Tommy M, it’s all about the story! He’s a big fan of the Action Adventure genre, especially the Uncharted and Last of Us series, and likes any game that he can get immersed in.

For many on our team, video games are all about playing together and building friendships. CW got started with an Atari 2600 in his childhood. His hands down favorite video game is Minecraft, reminding him of his childhood Lego adventures. He plays mostly with his wife and hopes to play together as a family when his twins get older. Dan C gravitates towards video games that are both Action Adventure and multiple players and loves being able to enjoy other worlds with friends and family. He plays mostly with his wife, sons and cousin and his favorite game is Guild Wars 2. Zach uses video games to relax and hang out with friends online. His favorite changes every month or so—currently it’s Smite. Dylan enjoys video games as a way of escapism and a fun way to play with friends ever since the early days of Nintendo 64 and Xbox 360. His favorites are Halo 3 and Super Smash Bros. simply because they are the games he plays most often with friends. He’s even built some custom gaming computers of his own!

For our IT Radix team, it’s all about fun and games… and friendships! Learn more about all of our IT Radix team members here.
