My Adventure In Gaming
Hi my name is Evan I have made games apart of my life for 13 years. The adventure begins at the age of six when I made my first console friend named, SNES. SNES and I had goods time jumping on koopas, catching goons on fire, and beating the hell out of guys while eating barbecue out of rusty garbage can.

Then around 8 years old, I met the console I still play every so often, the N64. Shooting enemies with a gun that is made of real gold to jumping on 3D koopas, this system gives me a reason why gaming will always be a hobby of mine. Even though the graphics are not up today's demanding standard, the memorizes of playing games on this system will forces me to keep on coming back to relive the good times.

At the age of 11, I became buddies with the Gamecube. At the beginning, everything was great; The first game I got was Super Smash Bros Melee. A year later I picked up The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Custom Robo, Resident Evil 4, and a few other games. After this happened, the problem appeared, there was not too many good games were coming out. I held out through the dark time in gaming hobby, hoping for good games to come out.

It was Christmas morning, I was 13 and as happy as I can be. Then one thing leaded to another as I ripped presents viciously, throwing clothes aside hoping to get the toys I asked for. Finally it came down to me and a heavy box that I had no idea what was inside. I finally opened it, insert Zelda chest opening music, it was a PC. I rejoiced as some lady plugged in everything to get working, and was surfing on the internet with 512MB of ram in no time. The first PC game I played was a game I seen my brother playing when I was younger, Counter-Strike. The experienced from playing online was amazing and created chapters in my game hobby. It was amazing getting my first head shot to joining my first online clan, it was simply great.

I was around 15 years of age when I seen my brother playing The Orange Box on the Xbox 360. After I seen my brother play it enough times, I decided to get a 360 myself and play with him. It has been 3 years since and luckily only one xbox got shit canned. My saga in gaming continues...

Hey Grizzly Evans, 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


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?
