About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.




  • Ryan

    The writer should have his editor look over his bio as even the first sentence used a mix of first and third person. It also states his name far too many times and is weighed down by short choppy sentences that can be condensed and add more value to what he’s trying to say.

  • Mr0303

    None of those games interest me too much. Perhaps Dissidia if the combat is good.

  • Not much for me here. I wanted another Life is Strange, but I’m not impressed with the idea for this one. Maybe I’ll keep an eye on Dissidia NT, but I’m not a big FF or fighting game fan to begin with.

  • Panpopo

    I must be the only person that wants to try that fishing game lol.
