Mike "Murph" Murray has been a gamer since he grew up playing his Atari 5200 and Apple IIGS at a ripe young age. He enjoyed "dying of dysentery" while playing Oregon Trail at his middle school's library.

He owns/has owned every single US Nintendo console with some exceptions such as the Virtual Boy, the original Game Boy, and some of the console variations (e.g. Game Boy Micro, etc). He is a Nintendo nut and if it is Nintendo related he has read it and analyzed it... and probably has an opinion on it... which you can read on Live Geek or Die.

When he isn't scanning his RSS feeds or writing for Live Geek or Die, he is either gaming or visiting Disney, his other favorite pastime.
