I'm Matthew Torino and am a senior at Rutgers University majoring in political science and playing a lot of sports video games in my spare time. I’m currently in the SAS Honors program and involved in Rutgers Dance Marathon and the suicide prevention group, 17 Minutes. I’m from North Jersey, just 8 miles from New York but have been living at Rutgers for the past 3 years. I’m aspiring to be a lawyer and going to Rutgers Newakr law school in the Fall.
I’ve been playing sports video games since I got my hands on NHL 95 (one year after the Gretzky head bleed edition) and Madden 94. I’ve bought and played them every year since except for one year as a naïve child I bought NFL Blitz instead of Madden and another year when I didn’t buy NHL 2005 simply because it was supposed to be awful. I’ve been playing NCAA Football since 2002 when I got my PS2 and have had a love hate relationship with FIFA and NBA Live/2K since roughly the same time period. I’m even a big proponent of the Smackdown Vs. Raw WWE Series but cannot stand the UFC games. All in all I have a lot of free time on my hands and use it to play all these sports game to my heart’s content
