About
My first console was the masterpiece of the Colecovision... Love that tank game that inspired Scorched Earth! Soon, Duck Hunt & Mario followed suit with the NES. But, my favourite console would have to go to the SNES, which inspired my fanboy fights with my Sega friends. I have much love for my PS2 though, especially considering I paid more for it than the PS3 costs today...
I'm a ginormous fan of RPG's & Platformer's, so any game that has both is considered bought. (May be why I'm playing Zelda - TP?)
My favourite games that gave me the best experience for my money... I'll name a few for now and I think I'll list it in chronological order (in the order that I played them anyway).

-Illusion of Gaia (SNES)... I love the fact the main characters all have different coloured words when they talk AND the pitch of the letters appearing are all different for each person. I wish new games would implement both those elements!
-Super Metroid (SNES)... No game has freightened me as much as this... well the music on the way to Mother Brain anyways.
-Secret of Evermore (SNES)... This game actually inspired me to create my very own board game based & revolving around the item collecting and mixing... Too bad it's the only thing I left in the house when I moved!!! (Could have been a millionaire by now)
-Chrono Trigger (SNES)... I've never been more obsessed with a game in my life inspiring the most doodling ever.
-Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (SNES)... oh how I love thee nostalgia...
[b]-Medievil (PS1)...</b> My first Playstation game. The music is top notch for setting the mood in the game's atmosphere.
-The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)... pure awesomness x2
-The Legend of Dragoon (PS1)... I love this game for the fact that it was one of the first RPG's to give me a hard time (as in always dying, at least on certain bosses) and sweat repeatedly.
-Chrono Cross (PS1)... I too was expecting more from my Chrono-Trigger-sequel experience... Though, what I stumbled upon happened to be an enveloping adventure on it's own. If it had a different soundtrack I might think differently.
-Final Fantasy IX (PS1)... Excellent mix of everything to like in an RPG.
-Final Fantasy X (PS2)... This is my favourite game of EVER. There's nothing I disliked about it. From the characters to the colours, the scenery, the music... even the linear gameplay haha. In fact, this is the game I replayed the most out of all my games.
-Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (PS2)... An overall great experience, especially in the item creation category.
-God of War (PS2)... One of my favourite games to play on the hardest difficulty & not get frustrated.
-Final Fantasy XII (PS2)... I'm not a fan of MMO's, but I love the ability to go almost anywhere and collect the best items as early as possible. A great way to burn hours away... like say 800... ahahaha... *sigh*
-Lost Odyssey (Xbox 360)... I often miss playing this game and have urges to play it again every so often... Even though I've beaten it twice.

-Systems That I Currently Own-
Colecovision, SNES, Sega Genesis, N64, PS2, Xbox, GBA, NDS, Xbox 360, Gamecube, PSP

Hey EnigmaticHarle, 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?
