About
I started playing games when I was 2 because my older cousin would bring over his NES when he came over to babysit my sister and I. When I turned 5 he gave me his NES, Power Pad, R.O.B, and Zapper, along with the 3 game cartridge of Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, and World Class Track Meet, Double Dragon, the Gyromite and Stack Up games for ol' R.O.B, Burai Fighter (Which is AWESOME), and Little Nemo (Also Awesome), all which I have to this day (and am thankful for).

I'm usually an RPG person, but I love games in all genres. My top 5 (give or take a few) in no particular order are: River City Ransom, Super Mario RPG, Little Nemo, Kirby's Adventure, Double Dragon 1 and 2 (fuck 3), Deja Vu, Chrono Trigger, Super Mario World, Super Mario Galaxy, Lost Odyssey, Vagrant Story (LOVE), Elder Scrolls series, Kirby's Adventure, Final Fantasy series (2,3,7,8 and 12 more so) Metal Gear Solid series, Phantasy Star 2 and 4, Suikoden 3 and 5, Blue Dragon, Okami, Front Mission 3 and 4, Grandia series, Xenosaga, Xenogears, Armored Core Series, Secret of Mana, Indigo Prophecy, Battletoads, Alien Hominid, Valkyria Chronicles, Beyond Good and Evil, Shadow Warrior, Blaster Master, Monopoly for the SNES (Weird, I know...but it's the only GOOD version I've ever played), Dragon Quest VIII, Dragon Warrior 1 and 3, Fallout series, Far Cry 1, Portal, A Boy and His Blob, Grandia 2, Rogue Galaxy, Vagrant Story, Earthbound, Valkyrie Profile series, Disgaea 1 and 2 (not so much 3), Venom/Spider-Man: Separation Anxiety (Green Jelly!), Illusion of Gaia, Legend of Zelda: 1, OoT and Link to the Past. Lunar 1 and 2 (LOVE), Persona series, and pretty much every Tales game...and probably about 100 others I'm forgetting at this moment. Really though I love (almost) all games.

Hey Butternine, welcome to our Community Blogs!

Unlike a regular blog, where you're out alone in the web wilderness, destructoid will publish your story instantly to a directory shared by our readers. Great blogs are voted up, and you'll soon earn followers. "Failblogs", the opposite of awesomeness, we can do without. As such, we want to help you make the best first impression:

Checklist for Not Sucking:

1) Upload an avatar CHECK!

2) Write a brief bio

CHECK!

3) Publish your first blog (SCARY!)

It's not so scary. However, be mindful of a few things. A good blog is intended to be a complete article, have entertainment value of some kind, and formatted nicely. If you toss a blog up that looks like a quickly thrown-together email with no photos or care you'll never earn readers, and unlikely ever get your blog promoted to our home page.

Here's an example of a FAILBLOG:
Oh hey I'm new here wuz up I've been reading the site for 99 years and this is my first blog! I like tacos! Nice to meet everyone!!! -Niero
Silly rabbit, blogs are not forums! While enthusiasm is greatly appreciated, that's hardly a valid blog post or even a complete paragraph. Even if your intentions are in the right place, this is what we call a "fail blog". Don't be that guy.

If that's all you want to say, it's better suited for fast-paced conversation in our home page comments or even our forums. Blogs are complete thoughts. They should be able to stand alone. When you're ready to talk about an interesting topic, in 1-2 paragraphs and ask readers to respond to your thoughts then you're ready to blog. Got it?

Don't spam the blogs.

One last thing -- be mindful that this is a 'shared' space, so don't push a bunch of blogs together one after the other. After you publish, try commenting and following other bloggers before you blog again to allow people to check your story out, and post new stories as well.

If you are copying and pasting from another blog, please take some time to personalize it for this community. Nobody likes copy-pasta, it's spammy.

Here's a few more blogging tips from the boss of us. Ready to go?
