I've been playing games ever since my father brought home that first Atari system. While my original gaming experience was almost entirely platformers and RPGs, once I got a PC of my own, I've been in love with first person shooters. The most important of these shooters to my gaming career being, of course, Half-Life. Once I got my grubby paws on a copy of Half-Life there was a cascade of gaming from all the mods and all the online play.
These days I still play First Person Shooters but I'm not quite as much as a fiend as I had been. Admittedly it feels difficult to find a good RPG to dump several hours into, which is why I still often stick to online games. My current favorite online games are Team Fortress 2 and Age of Chivalry. Previously I was a WoWtard but have kicked the habit.
What I'm here for:
Destructoid Articles - duh.
Trying to write interesting blog posts.
Enjoying other people's blog posts.
Having fun in general.
While I technically do not own all of these, I have access to the following consoles, many of which were purchased by me and given to others:
And my computer specs (the important ones anyways):
AMD Phenom II X2 545 @ 3.0 GHZ
ATI HD4770 PCI-E
Enough Hard Drive Space to kill a monkey.
4 Gigs of DDR2 sdram (3.5 accessable in my stupid 32bit OS)
Onboard Audio, because I'm a cheapskate and didn't feel like stuffing this soundblaster in.
Role Playing Games
First Person Shooters
Online Versions of both of those.
Freakish combinations of the first two.
Platforming from time to time.
Messing up pop-culture memes to watch people cringe.
Golf (playing, not watching)
