My experience with computer science really began as a gamer. With my first gaming console being the GameBoy Color, I slowly accumulated more and more gaming experience, rising up the ladder of consoles (N64, PS2, GBC, DS, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One). Somewhere along the way I was introduced to PC gaming and MMOs. My all time favorite MMO became RuneScape when I started playing in 2002.
Then when I was around 10 I found RuneScape private servers, copies of Runescape servers written in Java that were able to be modified and played locally. This is where I first fell in love with programming, being able to control my favorite game within lines of code. Of course, starting out I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and basically just mimicked the existing code structures. Later, I began to understand these structures and the language itself, opening the door for the field of Computer Science.
