The first post I would like you to make on your AS Media Studies Videogames is just an introduction - Tell us who you are whether you have any experience of the world of videogames. You are not required to be a hardcore gamer, but you may find that anything you have played in the past may be of use when it comes to the exam.

In this PowerPoint I have talked about my own experiences of videogames in the last 15 years: My life in games!
