About Tristan Meiman

Tristan Meiman

Hi there! Nintendo was the company that introduced me to the gaming world and will always be my personal favorite. My favorite franchise is The Legend of Zelda and my favorite game would have to be Super Mario RPG: Legend of The Seven Stars. I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a major in Journalism. Video Games are both a hobby and a passion to me, as I feel they are another medium of story telling.
