Hatred towards particular Games.

So recently I have wondered why people hate certain games, by hate I do not mean quietly so, I mean when they vocalise it via either spoken or written word, which usually would imply that they are passionate about it (to an e...

 


Differences between PC and console gamers.

There is often a stigma between console and PC gamers (particularly PC towards consoles). Where a lot of stereotypes held between the two forms, often seen as resentment, I do not know why this is. If a game is only released ...

 



My Journey With Fighting Games.

I used to love fighters, playing Street fighter 2 at my friends house on his SNES, among others including but not limited to Mortal Kombat. At this point we were pretty at them, not knowing how to perform combos or many moves...

 


Gaming Podcasts.

Destructoidís Podtoid OK I thought I would start with the site where I would be posting this. I have only listened to a couple of the episodes of this podcast, so this may not be the best judgement of it. I like the Podcast i...

 


Indie Games and me.

I thought I would write an article on a few of the indie games I have played recently. So here it is. Gravity Bone A fantastic, despite ridiculously short first person game. You play as a detective doing missions for an unk...

 


Music in Games.

To me this is one of if not the most important aspect in a game (which is not how the game actually plays). Consider it this way, do your favourite games have bad or average soundtracks... No they do not, unless you have no ...

 


Games Journalism, and who is a gamer.

About Pattersone of us since 4:19 PM on 07.27.2009

Hi I guess that's the best way to start. I am Patrick, a Maths student at the University of Manchester (UK). I am a gamer... no s**t, I have played games for over 15 years starting with Sega Megadrive, Super Nintendo and an Amiga A500. My console repertoire would be: Sega Megadrive 2, SNES, Gameboy, N64, PSOne, Gameboy Color (urgh I hate that spelling), GBA, Gamecube, Xbox, DS, Xbox 360 and most recently the Wii.

I enjoy pretty much any genre of game: from Shooter to JRPG to Platformer. The only genre which I don't get on particularly well with would be sports games.

My favourite games of all time would include: Full Throttle, Half-life 2, Splinter cell 3 and Skies of Arcadia among others.

Other than games I am pretty heavily into Music, particularly Rock and metal; with my favoutite bands including:InMe, Anthrax, Reuben, Fei Comodo, New Found Glory and Lamb of God. I am also a fan of all Joss Whedon's projects, particularly Firefly.
