Now, I know you saw that title (you know, "Hi Everybody!" like that doctor on Simpsons), and immediately concluded that this post would not be worth your time. You are 110% correct, but bare with me a little and I'll keep it ...

Hello, fellow gamers and gamerettes (Is that sexist?). I had a falling out with Destructoid (for heaven's sake, the site's very name is not in the dictionary) a long, long time ago and I am astonished to see that my name is still registered on the site. Anyway, I thought I'd say some ultimately uninteresting but required stuff about my vanilla existence. I love games. All sorts of games. Even the eroge ones (especially the eroge ones, now that I think about it). The problem is I have not played very many video games. Even the eroge ones. I chalk that up to being a poor piece of shit that had to hand every dime over to the family just to get the rent paid, but alas, that is a topic for another day.
Anyway, I derive my gamer credibility from receiving a reply from Jonathan Holmes, our very own white knight and all-around awesome and unnaturally handsome scholar of everything gaming. Just in case you want to check it out, it's on his "Revolutions in Gaming" article. Also, I really like Jim Sterling. He's mega, hyper, super, insanely cool and I love his fat, pink, beautiful face. I would kiss him if I could.
Ahem, I've completed the following games:
-- Resident Evil 4 (NGC)
-- Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
-- Castlevania: Circle of the Moon
-- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (GBA)
-- Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (GBA)
-- Jet Set Radio
-- Jest Set Radio Future
-- Gears of War
-- Gears of War 2
Some nuggets of (very mildly) interesting information from my (very limited) gaming experience follow. When I first saw Jet Grind Radio and Shenmue on the Dreamcast in 2008, my mind was blown. The colors, polygons, animation, EVERYTHING blew my 16 year old mind. Resident Evil 4 likewise gave me an eye orgasm with its AMAZANG (<-- Intentional misspelling) graphics at around the same time. My interest, nay fascination/infatuation, with gaming began and has peaked and crashed with the waxing and waning of my life since. I dream nearly constantly of a room packed wall-to-wall with games of all kinds.
And that's a bit about me. I'd like to get to know the community here better. Especially Magnalon. Actually, that name is the only one that comes to mind right now.
