Hi all... My name is Gregory Brown and I am gaming fanatic. I have been gaming nearly all my life, in fact it is the thing that drove me in to programming for a living. I have had the opportunity to work on many different projects. The reality is my real goal in life to was to write and create video games. That was side tracked a little... I am gamer none the less, to the end. I am more than interested in games themselves; however, I am interested in the technologies that the game systems are built on, as well. Due to the horsepower and innovations needed to drive many of today's games, advancements in computing and software are made. Whether people are gamers or not, the next multi core laptop, desktop or gaming system will be the product of pushing the line of real and fantasy. I just can't wait until we get to the point where interaction gets down to a hologram level. We may be far off from that; however, I feel the advancements in the gaming world will push our overall technological advancement. I think we will all be ready for advancement because superior games systems will be our trainers. Trainers that have the potential to teach and provide a momentary escape from reality.
