I've been reading Destructoid for quite a while now, and only last year I finally made an account, and I'm now finally making an intro post. Just goes to show how on top of things I am.
Well to start of, I'm a 19 year old gamer whom has been playing games as early as I can remember.
As a child I started with the NES (As it should be) and my diet of games consisted of Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Friday the 13th (Not even retro goggles can make it good), Zelda, and a couple others I can't seem to remember. A little later my parents got me a Super Nintendo and a Sega Genesis. My games for them were Super Mario World, Aero the Acrobat 2, The Legend of Zelda Link to the Past, Jurassic Park, Super Mario World 2 Yoshi's Island, and a ton of rentals for the SNES. For my Genesis, I had Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Wardner, Dr. Robotniks Mean Bean Machine (Best name EVAR!), a few others I can't remember (Yeah my memory isn't the best), and lots of rentals. I got my Nintendo 64 and Playstation 1 a few years later. Sadly I did not get a Dreamcast, but my parents were good to me so I didn't complain a lot.
Alright, now a little non-gaming information about myself. Well I nearly died three times as a child, all of them by nearly drowning (I will never go to a water park again!), which gave me the phobia of deep water (I also hate water levels in games as well). I currently work for a Temp agency as a cleaner, at least until I find a better job (Temp agencies aren't the best line of work for making money, at least in my case).
My current list of game consoles are: NES Toploader, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64, Sega Saturn, Playstation 2, Nintendo Wii, Sega Dreamcast, and the Gameboy Advance SP.
Well, that's all for now. I'll make another post soon showing off my games and such.
I hoped you enjoyed reading my little intro post, and I hope to become a model member of the Dtoid community.
Good day to you all! read
