As a passionate enthusiast of the video game industry, I play dozens of titles each year encompassing all kinds of genres, although I have a particular fondness for metroidvania games, platformers, and good RPGs irrespective of their origin, Western RPGs and JRPGs. What would a video game translator be without a passion for the industry?

Below you will find a list of the video games I have completed each year.
