Who am I? A lover of the video game industry. I read about video games more than I play them. The various aspects and mechanics of design are what really intrigue me, and it's always fun to have a healthy debate about them.
Pokémon is probably one of the most influential series for me, period. It was the first game I could call my own, having gotten it on my 5th birthday along with a Game Boy Color. The series got me interested in sprites, art (alongside Kirby), glitches and programming, and allowed me to meet many friends. I could very well be an entirely different person had it not been for this game!
This is a fairly accurate representation of me, sans Pokéballs (unfortunately). Yes, my hair really is that fluffy at the moment. And yes, I really do need that shave. As I said above, I’m not amazing when it comes to art, but I like to doodle and I do try to improve myself whenever I draw something.
Aside from Pokémon, my other favorite franchise is Kirby, which I’ve also written about before. I don’t seek out challenging games, preferring to keep around what I feel I can play, but that doesn’t mean I like to have my hand held. When it comes to visuals, I’m a fan of creative aesthetic design over raw power. Games like Metal Gear Solid 4 look lovely, but I prefer my Epic Yarns and Raymans.
