The year was 1977, computer screens were still green and black, and a young Stéphane Pilet—better known as Stef Leflou—discovered his first video game: Pong. Fast forward through years of playing classics like Wizardry, the original Donkey Kong, and Super Mario Cart, and Stef created a video game fanzine that eventually led to him writing for Nintendo Player, Player One, Playpower, and GameBoy Advance Magazine. Today, in between rounds of Hearthstone and indie games, he explores Minecraft servers attempting (unsuccessfully) to domesticate a creeper. As rumor has it, he’s played every single game released in the last thirty years . . . but since he lives in an undisclosed location in the countryside, no one has been able to confirm.
