My Story

Welcome to Prudent Gaming! My name is Michael, and I am thrilled to tell you about myself and my passion for video games.

I’d like to say that my gaming journey began when I was about three or four with the Sega Mega Drive. I used to sit for hours and watch my parents play Streets of Rage and watch my dad play through Flashback. I remember the forest levels very well. The first game I ever played myself was Golden Axe and, thinking back, it might not have been the best thing for a four year old to play!

It was when my nan bought me a PlayStation with her bonus money from work that I began to properly understand the world of video games. Playing Rayman, Spider-Man and moving on to my favourite game of all time: Final Fantasy IX. These games and more had such a big impact on me that I now know what I want to do with my life, and this wonderful thing called the internet allows me to do it.

So, what do I want to do, and what is this all about? I love video games. They are a huge part of my life. I love talking about them and want to share this burning passion with the rest of the world. I want to explore new polygonal worlds and spread positivity through the community and industry at large. I want to be a part of this incredible space and this blog, along with my YouTube channel, allows me to work towards achieving that.

I hope you will follow me on my journey and we can have meaningful conversations about what we love in gaming. Whether that be through the comments on this blog, the Prudent Gaming YouTube channel or on Instagram and Twitter. Let’s talk about it all! 

I’m always looking for new things to work on, play, and review. I would also really appreciate any feedback on any and all of my work as that’s the best way I can look to improve myself.
