    Agreed @RockieOllie and I am just glad I was able to grow up in the time when Adam was working at TechTV and Ziff Davis so I could experience his comedic but passionate voice on the videogame industry. Congrats Adam!!!

    I'm 31 now but when I was around 9 or 10 my sister was next to my when I beat The Legend of Zelda and gave me a big hug after I killed Gannon my hands were shaking as well . I love gaming so much , it's the best feeling ever to know that others feel the same as I do now and when I was 10

    An excellent speech Adam! Whenever you take the time to make a formal address on a serious issue or topic, you always present a thought-provoking and stimulating presentation. I am sure that you have made quite an impact on those students, and it was very fun to listen to.
