About
Hello. Welcome to my blog. Have a goddamn seat.


My name's Dan. I joined the Destructoid Forums four years ago. I'm a moderator there now. Come down and say things to us. You'll float, too.


An artist's rendition of my "Rape Genie" persona

"Nihil" is the pseudonym I use for writing / gaming on the internet. I came across Destructoid by searching for information on Way of the Samurai 3. Tubatic had the most comprehensive coverage on it I'd seen anywhere.

For that, and for leading me to this community that has changed the course of my life, I thank him.




I started gaming in kindergarten, when the most advanced piece of hardware I could get my hands on was a black plastic handle and an orange button attached to a brick. I used it to blow up little squares on a black and white television screen. A couple years later, I was molested by the girl next door after beating her copy of The Legend of Zelda. I have mixed feelings about the experience.

Unfortunately, over the years, my ability to maintain a passion for games has waned (as in being able to play through them start-to-finish). This is due to various reasons and issues that would be too emo to get into at this juncture. But even though my passion has waned, my interest in them has not, thanks in great deal to the extraordinary friends I've made during my stay here.

I played a video game and now I'm going to review that game.



I played Grand Theft Auto 5. You don't need to go back and play the first Grand Theft Auto in order to play this one. Grand Theft Auto 5 is an action game, where you play as three men who are criminals. You can switch between them, but there is no difference in how they play. Sometimes the game forces you to switch and you have to deal with that if you didn't want to switch.

Sometimes you have to watch cut-scenes, but you can skip them, which is convenient when you just want to play the game. If you like watching cut-scenes, don't press the button that makes the game skip them. You have been warned.

In Grand Theft Auto 5, when you watch the cut-scenes, the three criminal men say things and kill people.




In Grand Theft Auto 5, when you play the game, you can do many things, like; rob banks, drive cars, shoot guns, watch strippers dance in strip clubs, parachute, swim in the ocean, and ride bicycles, watch movies, beat innocent bystanders to death, participate in the stock market, fly jets and helicopters, lose health by running too much, buy real estate, tow cars to an impound, play tennis, regain health by having sex with prostitutes, and much more.

If you're interested in any or all of the activities I listed above, you may want to consider playing the game. If you're not interested, I recommend avoiding it.
