About
I guess you can call me a cynic. I've never been too satisfied with gaming. I had myself a Nintendo, but i really wanted a Sega. Get myself a Sega, and I'm yearning for the SNES. The pattern repeats too, get the N64 and I actually want the PS1, get that and then the PS2 is released. I've had my hands on all systems and I've constantly been shuffling through them trying to find good games. It's been a long journey, but I've found some memorable titles.
The Silent Hill series is a big source of a lot of theorizing and hypothesizing that never really lead anywhere for me. Also I think I'm the only person who's favorite entries are Silent Hill 3, The Room part 4,Silent Hill 2 and than 1. I love the game but still can't seem to string together the grand picture that the series is trying to get at.
I wanna make a film adaptation of Fatal Frame 2 some day...
Uh Dino Crisis use to be a big favorite of mine, until I recently youtubed the game and watched over some old footage and remembered how frustratingly disgusting the camera and controls were.
I grew up playing Sega's Sonic Pinball, I remember once I got to Level 2...Once.
The original Ninja Turtles was a source of much anger and frustration for me as a child. My cousin and I recently stumbled across the game again. We were both surprised that we still couldn't get through the water stage without losing all our lives. One of those proud moments where you can smile cause it was as hard as you remembered, the computer WAS cheating.
I got myself a 360 the other day after many years of hate. I had originally bought an Arcade model back when they first came out. Surprise surprise the thing broke after like 3 months, had to argue with customer support, wasn't impressed. Anyways I traded it for a PS3 and was pleasantly happy playing two games on the system for I don't know how long. Metal Gear 4 and Modern Warfare in one incarnation or another. Well I played others, but in all honesty those were the two games I really always came back to, which is kind of disappointing. Amazing blu-ray player for an amazing price, but gaming I'm not so sure anymore. There is The Last Guardian though. I'm kinda depressed there's a Shadow of Colossus movie being made, as that would be a dream adaption to film.

So I traded my wii in, which as much as I tried to fight, really did just sit on the shelf after a few uses. Now I got myself a 360, and just got myself Left 4 Dead 2. Amazing game, coincidentally I'm just catching up with this game, like with most other games and systems in life. Very happy with the game, only thing is I keep getting paired up with random douchebags who aren't concerned with teamwork. I don't know any other 360 users and I'm dying to experience this game like it was meant to, so help me out give me a add and get a good game going.

Anyways that's me for now

Not a big horn blower, but these posts must be made. So hello everyone. GoldLion here... God that sounds like I'm introducing myself as a super-hero.
So yeah, I got myself a 360, just got it actually and have been playing nothing but Left 4 Dead. Have a PS3 as well. And here are some top 5s

Top 5 Games
(for some reason is harder to make than other lists, so here in no particular order are five games or series that get lots of replay)
Metal Gear Solid (in particular 4, but number 3 would be my second favorite(
Modern Warfare (not sure how I feel about this being on the list, but it does get lots of play from me)
New Super Mario Bros (loved it, until I got the Star levels and than was severely disappointed. The series on a whole is amazing though and I'm a fuck for complaining at all)
Left 4 Dead (seems like an obvious pick but I've joined the band-wagon and I fucking love it)
Silent Hill (I've been stuck replaying Orgins and Homecoming, which I treat as fan fodder: fun but ultimately not to be taken seriously, I miss the old games, I gotta try Team Siren's (no longer Silent, right?) Blood Siren game they released on the PSN network.)
Shadow of Colossus (this hasn't had a whole lot of play, but "series" as a whole is so amazing I have to mention it)

Top 5 Movies (recent ones)
There Will Be Blood
Fight Club
Life Aquatic
Little Children (recently saw In The Bedroom, decided I liked it's acting more, but Little hildren's story better)
Sexy Beast

Top 5 Most Played Songs on iTunes
Always On my mind - pet Shop Boys
Hands of Time - Groove Armada
Colours - Donovan
Girlfriend is Better - Talking heads
Series of Dreams ("89 version) - Bob Dylan
Kinda upset Karen O or The Yeah Yeah Yeahs didn't show up here. Yeah, big favorite of mine.

Top 5 Books
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski ** Please, if you have read this, plan on reading it or are just curious about amazing literature, let's talk
Blood Meridian: Or The Evening Redness in The West by Cormac McCarthy
Catcher In The Rye (obvious pick considering recent events, however due to those circumstances I've been reminded to revisit the book)
American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
The Terror by Dan Simmons

The order shouldn't be takent oo seriously, cause to be honest most of these are what just immediately jumps to mind.

And yeah, that's about it, so hi everyone.
