He started out gaming on an old school Atari and a Commodore 64. Defender of the Crown was the shit back in those days. He would also play things like M.U.L.E, Carmen Sandiego, Summer Games, and Mars Saga.
Once he had his first Amiga, his fate was set to become a gamer. He mostly played point-and-click adventures from Sierra and Lucas Arts, but his other favorites were Empire, Lemmings, Future Wars, Buck Rodgers, and Battletech.
These days he also enjoys The Witcher 2, Mount & Blade, Titan Quest, Europa Universalis, FTL, Dungeons of Dredmoore, and LOTRO. He likes playing older games, because they are classics for a reason. He doesn't hop onto the latest thing just because the cool kids are playing it, and he believes that 90% of what's released these days is absolute crap.
Right now his home is right here on Destructoid. He has also done some writing for Front Towards Gamer and BitMob.
Hello everyone, I just wanted to let you guys know that as of today I will no longer be a part of Destructoid. You have all been awesome, and I have really enjoyed my time working for the site. Hopefully I will be moving on to something new and exciting soon.
I also write fantasy and science fiction short stories, which I am in the process of trying to get published. If you want to help me write some more of those, I have a GoFundMe where $5 will get you ebook anthologies for all the short stories I get published over the next two years.
If you want to keep up with what I am doing, the best place to find me is on Twitter @TheJoshDerocher
