Who am I? That's a good question. I'm a 26 year old gamer from Canada who's been playing video games for 22 years - I live and breathe games, and by extension, the industry. When I'm not gaming, reading about gaming or the industry, talking about games with friends or on forums or thinking about them, I enjoy reading, writing, sleeping, music, hockey, or hanging out with my girlfriend, though not necessarily in that order. I've recently finished my BA in linguistics, and I already have a half-BA in journalism that I'll probably never get done, considering I have enough experience to write news stories. Right now, I own a PS2, 360, gaming PC, DS, and PSP, and in the past, I have owned almost every console since the NES, at some point or another. I hope to expand to a PS3 as soon as I can.
I've actually written about the industry before, including an unsuccessful stint with RPGamer in my pre-university days. I was sadly forced to give it up because of a lack of time. I also wrote a gaming editorial column for my university paper, which my editor always wanted to make a "what's a cool game this week" column. Needless to say, they didn't renew me for another semester. Ah well.
I can usually be found playing RPGs or MMORPGs, though recently, I've started playing a lot of games from other genres, including some (incredibly unrealistic) racing games. Although I said I like hockey, I wouldn't be caught dead playing sports games; I just never really liked them.
I suppose if there's anything else you could possibly want to know about me, you can ask, though I can't imagine what you-
No, I didn't vanish again. I'm just here to say that "Tomorrow" turned into a few days. I'm re-thinking how I do these. Writing daily, as some people have pointed out, turns into kind of a job, and I already have one of those. I'm writing two pieces now, the Hitman Absolution piece I mentioned in my last post, and a longer one I call "Breaking In", about my uphill struggle to work in the gaming industry.
