About


About time I updated this freaking thing!

For those who already know me, I am Monodi. Those who doesn't, well, I am Monodi.

I got such a growing passion of gaming through the years and now I am currently in college starting my courses of Game Design as well!

I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy from all my life, but I have been much more in contact with titles for PC recently. Not that I am abandoning one, but I think it pretty much could cover the best the industry has to offer.

I am up for the philosophy that gameplay is more important than graphics, but I think graphics and technology are also a crucial part of the industry and experience even.

Excuse me, come again? I was leveling up my Tauros.

Oh, what?

Why am I playing a game for kids? I am sorry, no, this is a game for me too. Yeah I am sure of that, it says that on the rating. E for Everyone. That means kids, adults, babies, old men, middle aged people, girls, boys, asians, caucasians, black, brown, albino, short, tall, wide, slim, human, dog, cat, hamster, platypus, pygmy hippo, earthling, martian, cthulhu, demon, archangel, omnipotent, vegetate, mammal, reptile, bird, amphibian, fish, crustacean, matter and antimatter.

Some notes on it are suggested for some audiences but yeah, it is a game for me too. In fact, it was previously known as "Kids to Adults" in the 90s.

What do you mean that it doesn't matter? Why would it matter anyway?

That I should be playing Mature rated games? Why yes I do love me my M-rated shooters. I am a junk for Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead sometimes. I also liked Perfect Dark, Doom and Serious Sam HD. I recently got a copy of Resident Evil 4 for Wii, and it is pretty suave as well. I cannot believe I am 5 years late to the party.

What about Gears of War? Two things, I do not have an XBOX360, and not care that much. Why? I dunno, really not my style. I have read great things about it and I should check it out, but it is not accessible for me at the moment.



Oh what now. MadWorld? Why should I get it? I am not saying this game sucks either, I just don't care so much about when violence is driven in such a mindless way.

... weren't you just arguing about how the ESRB doesn't matter a second ago?

What do YOU imply in a Mature rated game? I am 19 years old and I can walk away of GameStop without feeling guilt or asking my mother to show her ID. But I just do not play them as much in comparison.

E-rated games usually present a wider selection of gameplay, art styles and have quite some legacy. I like to invite other people to play those as you just did. Except without certain age restrictions. My kid cousins are getting to know The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong Country like that. If they like them they can get the bonus benefit of not going through too much trouble to get it. Their time to play them will eventually come as well, so I will wait.

Wait, I see it coming. You will say that I also love Littlest Pet Shop because it is rated E for Everyone too, right? No. Just like I am not into your ultra-violent games, I am not into this diabetic crap. And as I previously mentioned there are cases a demographic is planned for. And I, as a testosterone producing male of 19 years old, I am not interested in Littlest Pet Shop.



What does MATURE mean for you? Is implying that my preferences should be judged by stereotype and social pressure instead of personal choice mature to you? Yeah, I think those games you mention are not rated for you, sir.

Peace.
