Destiny Channel Leader – Hive Discord

Hello, I am Graeme, AKA The SYSTEM. I’m 32yrs old and have been part of The Hive since pretty much the beginning,  also I am one of the Destiny leaders. I was born and grew up in Scotland but have been living in Leeds (UK)  since Oct 2010. I am married, have a little girl who is 18 months old and currently await the arrival of our baby boy who is due to be born any day now*. {baby number 2 arrived safe and well – and a whopping 9lb 2oz}.


I’ve been gaming ever since I remember, my first console was the Atari. Donkey Kong and Centipede were the popular games at the time, next up was the Commodore 64 and after that the NES was my first console where I actually knew what I was doing, Mario literally blew my mind! A few years later one of my uncles had a Sega Mega-Drive and we ended up swapping consoles and that’s when I first met Sonic, who would become another of my gaming icons.

So rolling through the years, I eventually received the PS One for Christmas one year, my very first game for it was the original Tombraider and this was a game changer for me, then the PS2 brought some of my best gaming memories (Shout out to SSX Tricky). I’ve basically been a PlayStation man ever since.

I did have a dabble with the Xbox 360 whilst I awaited the PS3 to be released but apart from that, Sony will always have my heart. Honourable mentions must also go to the Nintendo Gamecube, that took over my life for a bit (Mario Sunshine is probably my favourite Mario game of all time) and the Wii was an obsession for a couple years also.


I also still own the majority of the consoles named, It’s always good to load them up once in a while and let the nostalgia flow. The PS4 is my go to for relaxing and shaking off the stress of the world. My current game library includes, Destiny 2, The Division, Pro Evo Soccer 19, Everybody’s Golf, Steep, Burnout Paradise (Remastered) and many more. I like all types of games but mainly RPG’s, Shooters and Sport games.

I’ve only ever Platinum’d two games on the PlayStation, Skyrim and The Division. Here are some of my favourite games/franchises on PS – Uncharted (All of it), The Last of Us, Mass Effect (Original Trilogy), GTA games (Or pretty much anything Rockstar), Destiny, Crash Bandicoot & Spyro.

Finally, everyone has that one game or franchise that they’ve never been able to get into and mine is the Fallout games (The new one aside). I’ve tried so many times to get into it but I just can’t. That’s my big dark gaming secret!
