Hello there Destructoid. I don't game as much as I used to when I was an extremely active member of the website. I've had a 3rd kid as opposed to the 2 I had back when I joined and I've discovered that there are other things to do besides play video games. But I'm still a gamer for life.
Decent PC for gaming
My Favorite Games:
I used to have a list here but honestly I've changed my mind quite a bit over the years. I played Chrono Trigger again like I do ever year or 2 and decided that it's dialogue, like many old (and many new) JRPGs, was just too shitty and juvenile for me to actually take seriously anymore. I guess I'm just getting old.
My favorite games in no particular order are Resident Evil 4, God of War, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario Galaxy, Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past,Final Fantasy Tactics, Batman Arkham Asylum, and Chrono Cross. Pretty sure I've forgotten a few games I might remember when asked what my favorite games are in the future. It changes a lot.
This website used to be the best on the internet. Hopefully it will get back to that point, or close, some day soon. I'll probably never fully leave anyway.
I'm going to try and make this quick and to the point. This is partly because there's no "backbone" to this article, meaning it does not feature any real, tangible evidence to support my bitching and moaning. It's also partly because I need to put my 4 month old to bed so I can fuck his sex-addicted-because-she-needs-to-feel-wanted mother so she'll leave me alone and I can play Mass Effect 3. Right now they're doing feeding and bath time so I've got a few minutes to spare with you fine folks. So strap on your strap-ons and prepare to go fuck yourself. It's time to complain.
These new writers suck. Really, they do. The majority of them seem like they're writing giant fucking advertisements for they games they preview or even the news they report. Most of them seem to like just about everything. Nobody is being cynical or humorous. They either suck some game/developer/publisher/industry figure's cock, or they simply report the news and perhaps ask a stupid question of the readers, much like an IGN story.
Where the fuck is the insight? The wit? The originality? What happened to the honesty? Where did the fucking balls go?
I remember when Destructoid writers had no fear. I remember when they had opinions and they fucking used them as they saw fucking fit. Now everybody just smiles and waves.
I remember when Destructoid writers had personalities. At least Jim is still an asshole. My favorite asshole.
Apologies to the veterans who have been around for a while.......
Anyways, back to playing Mass Effect 3. Goodnight, and sorry for wasting your time. I did tell you strap on your strap-on, so don't say I didn't warn you.
