I'm the kind of gamer who doesn't really have enough time to play games all that often. So I guess that kind of makes me a "causal gamer". BUT, I not really a casual gamer in the sense that all I play is games for 4 year olds. I like playing hardcore games like Ninja Gaiden (Xbox & NES) and Metal Slug 3 (If you want to tell me that playing the last level on the Xbox version, AKA no continues mid-level, is not not hard, I will fight you). So in that sense, I'm kind of a "hardcore-ish" gamer. In conclusion, I guess what I'm really trying to say is I hate pigeon-holing things and I'm a "casually hardcore" gamer, if such thing exists.
Between my brother and I, we have amassed this collection of platforms: PC, NES, SNES, N64, Dreamcast PS2, XBOX, Gamecube, GB (the giant gray brick edition), GB Color, GBA SP, DS Lite, and Wii. I have never gotten rid of a console, and don't plan to. I kind of like having a quasi-museum.
The system I hold dearest to my heart would probably be my SNES. I grew up watching my brother play through RPG classics like Chrono Trigger, FF III (AKA FF VI), and EarthBound. So when I go back and play those games, I get kind of nostalgic. This would also explain why my favorite game of all time is EarthBound.
If it's not obvious at this point, I have always played consoles more than I have my PC, but that doesn't mean that I don't play it. 'Cuz I do. Look for me on Steam. My name is the exact same as it is here. Nubc4kes.
Given that I've been wanting to do this for weeks, it's kind of cool. Yea, all I'm writing is the generic, "its mui frist tiems!!11!!" post, but I still am having fun. I would write something a little more thought provoking, but I have class in like 15 minutes and I'm still sitting here in my robe at my computer typing a blog post. And no, I'm not in high school. I go to the University of Texas at Austin.
Hopefully, I this is the first of many posts. I look forward to writing again. And with that I must say farewell.
