I'm Megazell. Part of that is my real name and the other part is my nickname
I'm a PC gamer. Not into consoles. I'm a retired robotics engineer. I co-own a table-top/PC LAN gaming store and a comic store in the NYC area. I volunteer for non-profit programs that target the 'digitial divide' in low income areas of NYC and fatherhood programs that target areas of NYC with high 'family disintegration'.
I use to be into retail games and several years ago but decided to only play freeware titles only after many of the games just lacked creativity. I also install age appropriate freeware titles in the computers at the children centers that I volunteer in to expose the kids to new and interesting gameplay mechanics and encourage creativity using mod, maps and game making tools.
I am into platformers, side-scroller shooters, side-scroller beat'em ups, action, FPS, Fighting games, co-op games, RTS and Turn-based strategy games.
I also post on a few forums a list of 'Free And Legal PC Games.'
Not sure if it's OK with the rules of the board to post those links so for now I will leave them out.
From time to time I have made mods, maps and models for various games over the years under the same name of Megazell.
I've been an avid user of the TIG DB for freeware games and thought I would sign up and see what's going on with the forum
