Greetings and salutations fellow D-Toiders! This is my third blog entry so I thought that itís high time to introduce myself :o)
So uh my nameís Chris, Iíve been roaming these gaming hinterlands for 24 years now. Iíve started my journey with Pegasus console (check earlier posts for details), Sega Megadrive afterwards, than had my firs desktop Personal Computer. And have been pc gaming until a century later Ė 2001 to be exact. Canít remember much from the 8 bit and 16 bit era, but those memories return is sudden flashbacks and are filled with joy and nostalgia (yes Iíve been playing Lost Odyssey
a lot recently but weíll get to that point later).
2001 brought a change in my gaming habits. First of all I bought a PS2 and abandoned PC for goodÖ well not totally for good. Free porn is still free porn, right?
Favorite PS2 titles:
- God of War (both)
- Guitar Hero II
- Tekken 4
- THPS 3
- Fight Night 2
- Soul Calibur III
- Burnout: Takedown & Revenge
- Well to be honest, there are so many that I just could go on with the list for a long time, so let us just say that I really love my PS2.
Time flew by and finally Iíve decided to go next gen
and bought me a nice, matt black xbox 360. Twas November, the year of 2007. Since then Iím catching up with all the fun stuff that Iíve missed so far. Got around Gears of War, Dead Rising (combined with Zombie Survival guide by Max Brooks), Crackdown (How come no one protested about this game? I mean Black/Asian/Mauritanian/Gimp Masked person on a racist killing spree. Címon RE5 is all about racism, so why not this game?), Assassins Creed (now that was disappointing), skate (OMG that game is pure perfection!), Fable (oldie but a goldie
) and Lost Odyssey (ran out of happy pills even before got to the first discs end, damn now that gameís sad. But in a positive way :] It makes the emo inside of me wail with satisfaction).
How I ended up on Destructoid? Hereís a clue:
Iím one of those Gertsmann-gate victims that had fled cash-whores ranks. How clichť
. Iíve been lurking for some time now, sparsely commenting other c-blogs. Iíve even managed to produce two entries of my own. So little due the constant lack of time (work, mastersí degree in the making, family, girlfriend, friends and such).
So as I finish this lengthy introduction Iíd like to say to all of Destructoid community:
Try and pronounce my nickname :> read
