Since I'm new here (to the blogging world at least) I'd like to let you get to know me a bit better! So without further ado, here are 3 things you don't know about me!
1. If you couldn't tell by the name or avatar I am a huge fan of the Tales series! My first introduction to the series was Tales Of Symphonia, ever since then I've been a dedicated fan. I've played almost all of the Tales games. Sadly a select few never made it to the states, I prey to the nine that one day they'll be ported; that way these empty spots in my soul can be filled! I just love how they completely innovate their combat mechanics every single entry, it's absolutely breath taking each time.
The characters and stories are always fun and engaging, over the course of playing the game for countless hours you start to fall in love with certain characters. Hideo Baba and the team do such a fantastic job of breathing life into these amazing cast of characters, each and everyone having their own unique personalty, traits and skills. I wish every game paid attention to detail to that level. My favorite character from the Tales universe is Zelos Wilder, the womanizing, charming and hilarious red head. He has no equal! Anyhow I can ramble about the Tales series for days on end, so lets move on.
2. I love Anime! Absolutely my go to entertainment when I want to take a break from the videogame world. Anime invokes so many feelings at once, well if the anime is good at least. I haven't watched that many series, at least compared to some of the people I know -- I've finished roughly 27 entries. My number one favorite being Samurai Champloo! A master piece in the anime world if you ask me personally. The art style, story, characters and music were all outstanding. Mainly the music stood out the most to me.
The music composed mostly by Nujabes, my favorite music composer of all time did an unbelievable job with the soundtrack; which still holds up today. A few other of my favorite anime's are: Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Gungrave, Hajime No Ippo and Darker Than Black -- to name a few. I am currently watching Shingeki No Kyojin, better known as ''Attack On Titan'' here in the U.S, it's a fucking roll coaster ride of emotions to say the least. I just got done with episode 21 the other night and I almost popped a blood vesicle from the mixture of rage and sadness that episode invoked in me! Any of you guys anime fans?
3. VIDEOGAMES! I love them! Seriously though, videogames have been in my life ever since I can remember. Speaking of, I still to this day remember the first time my small chubby little baby fingers gripped a SNES controller. Ever since that day videogames have been in my everyday life. No other type of entertainment medium can match it, it's just too unique. From the Mario's to the Zelda's I've grown to love them all. It's been an amazing experience watching consoles evolve and grow along side me, almost like they are family members. Contrary to popular belief videogames have helped me grow and into a better, smarter and caring person. Gaining such qualities from videogames probably sounds absurd to some but it's the truth.
So much can be learned from a simple videogame, some people brush it off and make fun of me most of the time when I try and explain these things. To each their own I say. But I digress. If I were to pick my favorite game of all time, it would have to be ''The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time'' I know, I know most overrated picked title of all time. But with good reason, it is truly a master piece in my eyes -- the feelings that game gave me over 10 years ago still stand to this day. That is a feat no other game has achieved to this day. I'll leave it at that before I bore anymore of you with my ramblings.
So that's it folks! Three things you didn't know (or maybe you did, STALKER) about me. I'd love to get to know some of you as well, so feel free to leave me a comment down below! Who knows we might have some things in common.
