What can I say? Basically, I've been playing video games almost my entire life, currently 25 years old, starting all the way back with the Atari and moving on up over the years. I loved playing with the Atari, but my "hardcoreness", I suppose you could say, didn't really set in until I got a Nintendo Entertainment System.
Super Mario Bros. was great and all, but Mega Man is what solidified my love of gaming, at least that's what stands out the most reminiscing of my childhood of gaming. Also games like Super Mario Bros. 3.
My next console leap was to the Sega Genesis and sometime later I got the Super Nintendo. Super Nintendo was hands down the better of the two consoles in my eyes. The Genesis became an abomination toward the end of it's life cycle. I'd like to claim it was pure hardcoreness that led me to purchase a 32X and such, but honestly it was stupidity, heh.
I skipped the Saturn, wasn't a big fan of Sega at this point and honestly I didn't have any interest in anything on the system. I got a Playstation and eventually a Nintendo 64.
Playstation 2 was next and then eventually a Sega Dreamcast. The Dreamcast was a great system but still ended up failing, which sucks since it ultimately set Sega packing in the console making business. Playstation 2 was great. I got an XBox later and followed much later by a Game Cube.
This generation of consoles I have an XBox 360 and a Nintendo Wii. Both great consoles in their own ways. Don't yet have a PS3, I refused to purchase one until Yakuza 3 was announced for release in the US. It hasn't been officially announced yet, but it's not looking too bad. I may have a PS3 not long from now, but one positive thing about waiting so long is that I'll be able to pick up many great games for low prices if they came out a while ago.
I enjoy a lot of different games and genres. I play a lot of FPS, action/adventure, horror, etc. Love the Resident Evil series, Legacy of Kain series, early Mega Man titles, various wrestling titles, etc.
Over at GamePolitics.com, a place I visit every day, I have found some news that is both amusing beyond belief and I find myself appalled at this mans increasing stupidity. In a document he filed with the court last week he included images depicting hardcore gay sex. Some how this genius thought he was being smart because the opposing attorney, Norm Kent, a gay activist attorney from Miami, has a website called National Gay News which Thompson claims anyone can go there and get those pictures. Well, obviously just a cheap ploy in trying to get Norm Kent in to some trouble, instead gets himself in trouble. The judge demands that he show just cause why he should not face sanctions and possible contempt charges.
But, anyway, what we have here is a grown man who's compared himself to Batman in the past and sits around all day looking through video game sites, Googling his own name to see who's talking about him, and searching for and printing out gay porn. Oh, and he called Dennis, owner of GamePolitics.com, "sweetie". Jack Thompson, are you trying to come out of the closet or something? Perhaps the reason you seem so obsessed with GamePolitics.com is that you're actually finding yourself attracted to Dennis or something. I mean, it would seem that way to me. Maybe you just need to come out of the closet Jack.
You know what? Stay there actually. I wouldn't want to plague the gay community with your stupid crazy ass.
