A Gamer’s Story
Getting a Better Understanding of the Game with CoolcatTerri
Perhaps the first image that comes to mind when we think about the gaming community is a kid in their room playing video games, or if not a kid, young people. But that is just a stereotype; the gaming community is diverse; you can find prominent surgeons in their 30s and 50 years old with kids playing video games. Anyone can be a gamer; that is what today's guest, CoolcatTerri loves most about the gaming community.
My first guest for this podcast is CoolcatTerri. She is a gamer, a streamer, an Indie dev, an influencer, and the Just A Glimpse podcast host. Terri is an old-school gamer; she started playing Centipede in arcades, and since then, games had been a massive part of her life.
In this episode, we talked about her relationship with games, how many hours a day she plays, and what she thinks she would be doing if video games weren't part of her life. Terri kindly shared the relationship between her family and games and her vision on what are the pros and cons of the gaming community. Terri also shared fantastic information about owls, her favorite animal.
I invite you to listen and get to know in-depth the fantastic CoolcatTerri.
