GAM­ing is one of the most pop­u­lar pas­time ac­tiv­i­ties across the world. Just like movies, it’s a form of en­ter­tain­ment but with an in­ter­ac­tive twist. the idea that you can make a liv­ing from gam­ing was con­sid­ered im­pos­si­ble but nowa­days, the im­pos­si­ble has be­come a re­al­ity with the ad­vent of es­ports.

one such in­di­vid­ual that has been mak­ing his mark in the es­ports scene is Malaysian Muhamad luqman haziq ha­ji­man, 21, also known by his call name fen­rir, who has been widely recog­nised as a fifa prodigy.

fen­rir, who grew up in Am­pang, has had a pas­sion for foot­ball from a young age.

Pair­ing his ta­lent with his love for sport, he soon found him­self cap­tainr of his school’s foot­ball team at sMK Amin­ud­din Baki. But he is also fond of videogames, es­pe­cially those with a nar­ra­tive fo­cus such as Fi­nal Fan­tasy, Per­sona and Har­vest Moon.

how­ever, the one game se­ries that truly stood out dur­ing his child­hood was fifa.

he has played ev­ery sin­gle fifa game from the first Plays­ta­tion con­sole to the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion Plays­ta­tion 4.
