Ever since he was 2 he has been playing games. His mom and dad have never really really liked him, as he made them spend so much money on video games.

Drake said happily now they could keep his games.So Drakes parents let him keep his games just as long as he kept his grades up. Drake kept working hard in school and grew up to be a software engineer.He is currently working with Konami developing a game with a lot of hype surrounding it.It is heading for its much anticipated release date, November 13, 2001.
