XGM – Michael Hains

I am an avid gamer, who loves to play and explore new games. I was introduced to games from a very young age, and have since enjoyed my passion. Of course I love to share my passion and opinion, and this has pushed me into creating this website. I always try to find a fair and unbiased opinion on games, and as such I am always open to any criticism and comments.
