My name is Michael and I reside in Orlando, FL. Although gaming has and always will be a big part of my life, I find myself having less and less time to game. That's mostly because of my studies. I'm a major in Journalism with the dream of combining both of my hobbies (writing and gaming) into one bad ass career.
Although i play pretty much any genre of video games (except sports, why not just go outside?!), RPGs seem to have a special place in my heart.
And on that note, heres my list of, well, things.

I've been browsing around the site for about 3 months now, and it definately has become my haven of entertainment during the cruel work hours. Why it took me so long to create a profile, and post this blog beats the hell outta me, but i thought nows the time. So let me do this as properly as i think is properly proper. I know the introduction is a big thing here at destructoid, so if i think i'll go about it by naming a couple influencial games during my life.
Super Mario Bros. 3
this little slice of heaven happened to be my first video game i got my hands on when i was a little parasitic child. I could even go as far as to say this game made me into the person i am today. This game opened the door to videogames, as far as i can tell, it'll never close. I remember memorizing where every 1-up is in the first couple of levels, and even the patterns of goombas and koopa troopas so i can time the perfect jump. This game holds a special place in my heart and i'll never stop picking up the controller and playing it.
If you don't know about Chrono Trigger, shame on you. Actually, shame on me for insulting you by assuming you don't know about Chrono Trigger. I'm sorry :(
Chrono Trigger is the game that introduced me to my favorite genre of videogames, RPGs. Before Final Fantasy was ever a part of my gaming vocabulary, i was totally oblivious to the genre. Once i got my hands on Chrono Trigger, my life was changed...FOREVER. Whoever knew that a video game could have such ridiculously great characters and a ridiculously awesome story (cause nothing spells epic like a frog and a robot time travelling with a group of misfits TO SAVE THE WORLD!) ?
The soundtrack was icing on the cake. I remember *spoiler-ish?* fighting magus for the first time with his crazy I'll-kick-your-ass-bitch theme song, and i pissed myself out of FEAR.
I'd really like to add more, but alas, i must leave my computer and do other things, such as playing LBP.
PSN ID: Kyvon08 if any of you want to play in the future!
and with that, it'll be great gettin' to know you all, whether you hate me or not :)
