Beginnings: Platforming the Playground

   0
I was born in 1996 during the beginning of the Nintendo 64ís life. As I slowly grew just old enough to play video games I didnít just have an N64, but also an NES, Sega Genesis, and Game Boy Color. I was already surrounded by hours of entertainment waiting to be had. I remember diving into the world of the Mushroom Kingdom in Super Mario Bros. and Mario 64; the days where I would sit and race through the vibrant worlds of Sonic the Hedgehog; and even counting with Elmo in Sesame Street 1-2-3. Whatever game it was, I always had a blast and could never put the controller down.

Even outside of the television screen my interest in gaming and adventure never faltered. In preschool I would always ask my mom to make my hair look like Sonic or Tailsí. I watched Pokemon anytime it was on and knew all of their names. When I took trips to the local playgrounds I would come up with fun games, imagining I was any kind of video game hero I wanted to be. Platforming on the metal contraptions of the playgrounds to accomplish my imaginary mission. All I wanted was for these games to be my reality.



As video games advanced in technology, I did in my own ways as well. I wasnít a little kid anymore, I was growing up. Every gamer has heard the line ďWhen are you going to grow up and stop playing with your games/toys?Ē from an adult or that sporty classmate. Well the answer is simple for me. Never. Video games arenít just toys; theyíre music, art, storytelling, a challenge, and overall fun. Theyíve even taught me valuable lessons and other things along the way. Video games have led me to be the kind of person I am today, and Iím proud of that. Iím in for the long run and itís all thanks to a few of gamingís classics. So, no matter what the developers decide throw at the world of gaming next, Iíll be there.

Good day to you all. If I may introduce myself I go by the name AbsolutePoppycock (or just Sean) and this, is my blog. Here I will make an attempt to entertain the beings which inhabit Dtoid and hopefully accomplish something along the way.

I reign from the mysterious and alluring land called New York. I have been gaming for as long as I can remember and it is without a doubt my biggest hobby.
