Piet Crusader

With the luck of the draw Piet's brother won a brand new Super Nintendo (SNES) through the weekly Donald Duck comic. This great addition made for an awesome start of his gaming career. Years later the follow up consoles started making their appearance. He even shipped his ps3 from Europe to the West Coast of Canada so he could enjoy one of his favourite gaming series of all time; Dark Souls.

Piet is a real game finisher. He gets sucked into a game and keeps playing it until all the secrets and trophies are discovered.
