As the first Arab-language video game commentator, Al-Nasheet tapped into a huge online community and built a fan base so large he became the face of gaming in the region.
These are the games that shaped his life:
The Last Of Us
The complexity of modern video games is astounding. You play this post-apocalyptic action-drama game via the relationship between characters Joel and Ellie, who you will soon grow to love as if they were your own family.
This is the game that taught me never to give up. From that first mushroom you get on level one I was all in with the world of gaming.
Metal Gear Solid
Hideo Kojima is a genius. He was the first game director to make a game that gave the player a movie-style experience by adding storyline-driven cut scenes. The Metal Gear franchise revolutionised gaming and grew to be one of the biggest franchises in history. It is the series that made me want to be part of the gaming industry.
The Indiana Jones of a new generation, the adventures of Nathan Drake are able to have you glued to your chair for weeks on end. This was the first of the franchise, and even the multiplayer is super fun and packed with action and crazy situations.
Call Of Duty (Modern Warfare)
This groundbreaking game was not only one of the best First Person Shooter games ever made, but it changed the entire entertainment industry by becoming the biggest franchise of all time. Yup, that includes film, TV and music.
