I spent much of my childhood in the hospital where the kind nurses oh so casually brainwashed my young mind into loving video games. Not that I was entirely unwilling. Video games let me do things I couldn't really do in real life due to physical disabilities.

Games have become my avenue of escapism. Like books, gaming sends me into new worlds. I begun gaming on the NES with a focus on beat'em up's like Ninja Gaiden, Double Dragon, and Battletoads. I moved to the SNES and my tastes expanded. I discovered the wonders of the JRPG and gaming showed me how compelling it could be. The N64 brought my friends in on the action with wonders such as Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and Rush 2049.

I started paying attention to developers as Rare was creating many experiences that I enjoyed. Then came Sony's Playstation and Squaresoft enticed me over with their impressive library; Final Fantasy, Legend of Mana, Front Mission 3, Parasite Eve, and more.

The PS2 primarily scratched my singleplayer itch and Xbox continued the local multiplayer tradition my friends and I held dear. However, I did miss out on many Gamecube experiences.

I know primarily game on the Xbox 360 and my wife, my daughter, and I enjoy some light Wii time as well. The DS and PSP has opened my family to handheld gaming which has been a blast. I never did get into PC gaming as I never really had a computer to call my own. I don't really look towards the PC for my gaming needs but I've been slowly seeing what it has to offer.

Wow, that's way more than enough, like anyone's still reading by now. If you are, thanks and take care.

Hey HeSaNa, 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?
