About Alex Schramke

Alex fell in love with gaming by the time he was old enough to pick up a controller. Growing up with a steady diet of NES, SNES, and Atari 2600 games, Alex quickly became a fan of all things Nintendo. He began amassing a gaming collection, (Including boxed and complete versions of every Legend of Zelda title made) over the years. After graduating from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelor's degree in Game Design, he found Pure Nintendo by chance, and began helping out in June 2012. He has been writing articles and loving it ever since!
