About
Hello. As you've probably gathered my name is Seth. The relevant gaming related factoids about myself are as follows:

1) My first game console was an atari 2600 and I have pretty much been fully hooked on games as a hobby ever since. I've missed a few consoles here and there and I've only just begun to play games on PC but I can tell you that the blog posts you find here will reference a 20+ year love affair with video games.

2) I'm married (no kids yet). As such, my time for gaming is somewhat limited because as much as I'd like to be an unwashed bachelor again at times, I absolutely love my wife and enjoy spending time with her (imagine that!?). Because of this I am pretty picky about the games I play... this will probably translate into me insulting much of the crap I see passed for games these days. AKA: I'm fully prepared and expecting criticism of my opinions

3) After some deep introspection I can safely say that this is the short list of my favorite games: Geometry Wars 2, Worms Reloaded, Quake 3 Arena, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Super Mario World 2 Yoshi's Island, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, Jet Grind Radio, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Skies of Arcadia, Battlefield 3, Final Fantasy 9, Resident Evil 4, Dark Souls, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Saints Row 3, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3, Ikaruga, Castle Crashers, Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo..... Okay, maybe it's not such a short list.

So, hey, you've spend enough time reading this bio, get to reading some of my blog posts will you? Chop chop!

Hey Seth Wright, 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 CHECK!

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?
