Hi, my name's Ross. I've been a member of Destructoid for quite a while now, and I've been through quite a few accounts - mainly through me forgetting the password/email address.
I'll pretend I'm new, so let's do some formalities. I'm 17 (since Wednesday); I live with my parents in the North East of England; I'm currently at Sixth Form, studying English Lit, History, Politics, Computing and Philosophy and Ethics; I own a cat, he's called Tom. Oh yeah, I forgot; I also like videogames.
I own a 360, a DS Lite, a GameBoy Micro, an iPod Touch and a Mac (not the best for games, but we're getting there).
Here's a picture of my game collection, for whoever's interested.
And here's some copy and pasted stuff from my last intro, albeit edited into relevance:
1. How'd you get into gaming?
Well I first got into gaming when I first saw the Pokémon
anime on Cartoon Network (those were the days...) which indoctrinated me into joining the still-strong army of Pokémon fans. And what does every self-respecting Pokémon
fan need? A GameBoy to play the games on! I remember pestering my parents for long enough to offer me the choice between a cat and a GameBoy; obviously I chose the limited edition Pikachu GameBoy bundled with Gold
- but it's okay cat lovers, I'm not a heartless cat hater - I got the cat too!
2. What are your favourites?
I'd have to say my five favourite games are: Pokémon Gold/Silver
, Star Wars: Battlefront 2
, Fallout: New Vegas
(used to be FO3
, but I think it's been topped), Mass Effect
and Half Life 2
. (There are even more, and I think that one of the Fables
needs a mention, as well as Oblivion
but I'm going to keep it at five.)
3. What are you playing now?
I'm playing through the Undead Nightmare Collection
for Red Dead Redemption
. I've just finished Dead Space
. I'm also dipping into the horror that is Deadly Premonition
, I can only take that game in small doses.
