This is the eighth in a series of articles about people who write for Tucson dampfang.com. Today Tucson Places and Faces visits with Tucson Video Game Community Examiner, Mishuan “Sean” Morgan.
Tucson Video Game Community Examiner, Mishuan “Sean” Morgan has a passion for video games. Like most kids he grew up playing video games but his interest in the games took him a little bit farther than most people.
“I looked up the history of them”, he says in regards to the video games he plays.
He studied them enough to learn how to program and create his own games. But if he isn’t playing one of his own games he likes Nintendo and the adventure genre of the games.
“I buy games or get them on-line”, he says.
Many games can be downloaded but when he shops in town he says he prefers to get his games at either, Game Trader, at 2118 W. Grant or Bookman’s at Campbell and Grant. New games typically cost around $60 so he tries to trade-in old games.
At the ripe ‘young’ age of 22, Sean is one of the younger Tucson Examiners. He learned about dampfang.com on Craig’s list and chose to apply.
“I like to write”, says Sean.
He adds that he took writing classes in high school and college and likes story writing. Although he likes writing, his goal is to finish school and teach history or become an historian. He likes Greek history and mythology, any time frame before 1500. Currently, he attends Pima College West and plans to transfer to the University of Arizona where he will obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in History and maybe later a Master’s Degree. He also likes philosophy classes. The passionate gamer will be a junior in the fall.
Sean has been writing for Tucson Examiner for about four months and tries to write one or two articles a day. This summer he has given himself a break from the grind of daily writing but will probably get back to it soon. The article he wrote on Microsoft Controllerless Systems is one of his favorite stories. The article discusses the advances in video games in the past forty years.
Since he enjoys writing, Sean is thinking of taking on another Examiner topic. He may be the next Tucson Roller-Hockey Examiner if he decides he can fit it into his schedule. In September he will try out for the roller-hockey team in town, the Tucson Slayers. Currently they play at the only roller-rink in town at the Century 16 Plaza at Grant and I10.
He has been playing roller-hockey since he was ten years old.
