About D. Crowley

My interest in gaming started on the Sega Genesis. Since then, I have branched out to many different consoles over the years, with an especial interest in underrated consoles, such as the Wii U. Nintendo consoles have been my console of choice for current generations as I love the focus on kid-friendliness and innovation.
