About
Well what is to say, I've been an avid gamer since back in the day of SNES; however, I wasn't really into video games until the Nintendo 64. The first game I really got into was Ocarina of Time, and I've been a Zelda fanboy ever since, with Majora's Mask being my favorite installment in the series. Since then pretty much all of my hard earned cash goes into buying video games of all genres. As a gamer I am always getting my friends into my video games, I never exclude them even if it is a single player game, and I definitely get too excited when I get to talk about my favorites around them. Currently, I am proud to say the I have a Demon's Souls protege! Of all my games, most of my time goes to Zelda, but Oblivion and Demon's souls have definitely eaten my days whole, and I've poured hundreds of hours into them both. Oh, and I never shirk away from the chance to say that I have yet to become as engrossed with a multiplayer experience as I was with Gears 1, be it COD, BF, Crysis and the like, though killzone came close, none of it is the same, even Gears 2 did little to get me as hooked as I had been with the first. I am always seeking a great challenge, but I always find myself blowing through games on their highest difficulties (as I refuse to play on any other difficulty); as I had mentioned earlier the multiplayer segments just aren't appealing, so usually I just sell most of my games to fund my addiction. That's not to say they are boring during the time I play them, but not many games have an actual lasting appeal, even though games continuously hype their game as having just that. My most prized game currently is my Legend of Zelda Collector's Edition, the excitement that was within me the day I got it was indescribable: I popped that baby in and didn't come out of my room for like two days. Well that's me as a gamer, I am not too picky with what I buy as most games usually offer up a solid, fun experience, and then when a gem comes along - a game that simply blows me away - I proudly flaunt it as part of my collection!

Hey MyNameIsAndIAmAZeldaholic, welcome to our Community Blogs!

Unlike a regular blog, where you're out alone in the web wilderness, destructoid will publish your story instantly to a directory shared by our readers. Great blogs are voted up, and you'll soon earn followers. "Failblogs", the opposite of awesomeness, we can do without. As such, we want to help you make the best first impression:

Checklist for Not Sucking:

1) Upload an avatar Put a face on your blog. Your profile pic can be a mug shot of you, or something that represents your hobbies. Make it stand out from the crowd.

Upload an avatar and (optional) change your username

2) Write a brief bio

CHECK!

3) Publish your first blog (SCARY!)

It's not so scary. However, be mindful of a few things. A good blog is intended to be a complete article, have entertainment value of some kind, and formatted nicely. If you toss a blog up that looks like a quickly thrown-together email with no photos or care you'll never earn readers, and unlikely ever get your blog promoted to our home page.

Here's an example of a FAILBLOG:
Oh hey I'm new here wuz up I've been reading the site for 99 years and this is my first blog! I like tacos! Nice to meet everyone!!! -Niero
Silly rabbit, blogs are not forums! While enthusiasm is greatly appreciated, that's hardly a valid blog post or even a complete paragraph. Even if your intentions are in the right place, this is what we call a "fail blog". Don't be that guy.

If that's all you want to say, it's better suited for fast-paced conversation in our home page comments or even our forums. Blogs are complete thoughts. They should be able to stand alone. When you're ready to talk about an interesting topic, in 1-2 paragraphs and ask readers to respond to your thoughts then you're ready to blog. Got it?

Don't spam the blogs.

One last thing -- be mindful that this is a 'shared' space, so don't push a bunch of blogs together one after the other. After you publish, try commenting and following other bloggers before you blog again to allow people to check your story out, and post new stories as well.

If you are copying and pasting from another blog, please take some time to personalize it for this community. Nobody likes copy-pasta, it's spammy.

Here's a few more blogging tips from the boss of us. Ready to go?
