About Michael Laverty

Ever since I got my N64 as a child, I thankfully haven't been able to let go of Nintendo from my life. I have loved Nintendo ever since I first seen Mario and Luigi. The child version of myself had great taste for titles such as Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie and Mario Kart 64, continuing to the present day. I started writing about video games in 2012 and I haven't stopped since. I have a bunch of favourite games, with some top picks such as Super Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, Pokémon Y and Banjo-Kazooie.
