About

Welcome to Amber Plays Games, I’m Amber and I will be your host. I’m a 24-year-old female and I live in the United Kingdom.

I’ve been playing games since 1996/7. My first was a Nintendo 64 which came packaged with Zelda: Ocarina of Time and 007 Goldeneye. So far I’ve managed to clock up 15 years of gaming knowledge across a whole plethora of consoles and handhelds including (and not limited to); PlayStation 1, Nintendo Wii, Gameboy Colour, Nintendo Gamecube, Xbox 360 and more recently a PlayStation 4 and PC. I’m an avid collector and in my game room, you will find a large selection of gaming merchandise along with numerous special and collector’s editions of games I’ve enjoyed over the years. From Gears of War to Halo and Assassin’s Creed to Splinter Cell, I’ve got a wide variety of items all of which I enjoy looking at on a regular basis.

Alongside gaming I’ve always had a keen interest in computers and technology, placing the two together seemed like the right thing to do and thus this website was born and many before it. The first website I owned was ugotbeatbyagirl.com and it was probably the thing that got me heavily into writing in the first place. From there I began to write with friends on TheGameInvaders.com and Closet-Nerds.co.uk, both running for quite a while until we packed things up and moved on. In between writing and owning my own fan based sites I did write for some more semi-professional sites; Ready-Up and Push Start. More recently I owned the domain GetYoGeekOn.co.uk but that has only lasted since half way through last year, it didn’t have a long lifespan, but I and the team did manage to write more than a few reviews and articles.

Now I own and write solely for Amber Plays Games, meaning that I can write whatever I want, whenever I want and in the style I like. I’m also planning to move to video editing and placing my content on YouTube and streaming my gaming sessions on Twitch.tv several times a week. One step at a time.
