Despite what the post title says, I don't really feel like a new guy. To be honest, I've lurked here long enough that I felt like a member of this fantastic community in all but name. You honestly have something special here at Destructoid that you don't really see often on the internet, and that sort of camaraderie is pretty much whats finally made me join.
(But enough flattery.)
My name is Excelsior, or Scott IRL, and ever since I was about 3, and I discovered Sonic 2 on my new Mega Drive, I've been completely in love with gaming in all its forms (except RTS's, I'm not clever enough to work them.) I am pretty sure that at some point in my life, I have owned nearly every console made in the last 12 years (Even a Virtual Boy) except a PS3, the lack of which I viciously lament.
My favourite games in no particular order would be :
The Witcher (SERIOUSLY NEEDS MORE MAINSTREAM LOVE)
Final Fantasy I - 9 ( I tried XIII, it made my eyes bleed and my soul hurt.)
The Wind Waker (Better than OOT, I don't care what anyone says.)
Portal ( Just no cake jokes for the love of god, they weren't funny in 2008, they aren't now.)
Knights of the Old Republic <3
Team Fortress 2 (Add me on Steam, I have no friends ;_; http://steamcommunity.com/id/TheKingOfGames)
The Elder Scrolls ( BUT MOSTLY MORROWIND )
Fallout 3 and New Vegas
Monkey Island 1-2
Football Manager ( Don't ask, I don't even LIKE football.)
Those were all I could think of, off the top of my head, but there are way more.
RPG's are my one true love however, and as I rant, I am trying to scrounge up enough money to preorder the Witcher 2 (WHICH I NEED INSIDE ME)
I also love anime, but it's sort of toned down recently, I mostly just read One Piece when I'm bored.
Anyway, rant over, I'll try to be not to be a douchehat, so treat me gently guys?
