Phil is the kind of guy that is so obsessed with video games, even other people that work directly with games probably think he is a little bit nuts.  For some reason, he has the box that the shareware copy of Cosmo’s Cosmic Adventure came in hanging up on his wall. The box is totally awful too, with a screenshot showing Cosmo standing on a slope in this awkward way so that only his ankles actually contact the ground, leaving the rest of his feet floating there.

What kind of a software publisher looks at a screenshot like that and says “Ah yes, this is truly an excellent way to show off the quality of our game, let’s stick that right on the front cover of the box!”  More importantly, what kind of a person has something like that hung up on their wall?  Also, what kind of a person takes a bizarre little knick knack like that and then writes a paragraph about it from a third-person perspective in order to introduce themselves to the readers of a PC gaming site?  Well, Phil Cordaro guesses he is that guy.

When he is not playing games or going on nonsensical, long winded rants about them, Phil works as a research psychologist who finds ways to make his work all about games as well.  Predictably, he is also into a bunch of other stereotypically nerdy stuff such as dungeons and dragons, anime, sci fi, and in-depth analysis of pro wrestling.  This little blurb probably paints a pretty unflattering picture.  But maybe that’s his intention, and he has been manipulating you all along so that you would underestimate him.  Okay not really.  He wishes he was that smart.
