Hello my friends and fellow gamers! My name is J. Adam Gilman and I currently reside in Church Hill, Tennessee, but I am originally from Belfry, Kentucky. I am 40 years old, married, and co-creater of three beautiful little girls.
In 1985 my parents bought me an NES and I have been gaming ever since. I remember seeing it for the first time and that feeling I felt when I started up Super Mario Bros. Other than Mario coming with the console I was also gifted by my sister Ghost and Goblin’s. This game is the golden definition of what a title is that makes you rage. I can’t tell you how many hours I spent on this game and seven years later at the age of 12 finally beating this game only to start back at the beginning again.
The NES wasn’t the first system that I gamed on, but it was the first one that I could call my own. I enjoyed my cousins Atari and my best friends’ Sega. I eventually moved on to the SNES followed by the N64 before purchasing a PlayStation. I continued on with my love of Nintendo which I still carry with me to this day by purchasing a GameCube and Wii. I never broke down and picked up a Wii U, but I do own a Switch. I also own a couple Sega DreamCast’s, a PlayStation 2, and a PS4.
Now I’m sure you are wondering why I was jumping around with all these systems and the reason is… Resident Evil. When I first purchased a PlayStation the game that I picked up with it was Resident Evil. It was in a box and came with a comic book, why would I pass it up? I’m glad I didn’t as this has given me my love of Zombies. I also own every weapon from the first three games minus the grenade launchers, and I enjoy collecting anything Resident Evil related. I also collect anything related to Master of the Universe, Transformers, and Dynasty Warriors.
For 18 years I served in the United States Army conducting Law Enforcement while state side and numerous tactical operations ranging from Peacekeeping operations in the Balkans and Egypt to combat operations through Iraq, Afghanistan, and Africa. I loved every minute of what I did and would gladly do it all over again.
Besides gaming, I enjoy shooting, reading, photography, writing, art, tea parties with my girls and getting my toenails painted. I have two Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice, and Education. I also hold two Associate Degree’s in Small Business Management and Criminal Justice. I am a huge Duke fan and would love to go there to complete my Master and Doctorate Degrees, but will more than likely attend ETSU or the University of Tennessee.
I am a casual gamer that tries to complete certain game series and other games that I really enjoy, but for the most part I mostly play for fun. I love to read, I am a movie aficionado, I am a published writer that is currently working on a five part series, a prepper for whatever catastrophic event may occur in our future, and I am currently working on my photography skills while doing mostly landscaping and some family photography.
Favorite gaming series include Resident Evil, Dynasty Warriors, Left 4 Dead, and the newer Tomb Raider games are growing on me.
Favorite colors are Royal Blue and Forrest Green.
I have earned achievements in Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri, Texas, Florida, North Carolina, Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan.
I own every gun from Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2 (Minus Grenade Launchers). I currently have four from Resident Evil 3 and will probably stop after I complete that set.
If there is anything else that you want to know feel free to ask.
