I realized I'd burst out of the gates, guns-a-blazing, without even introducing myself. I would like to take this time to allow you to familiarize yourselves with your newest Deity.
Gaming Background Info:
I was born in 1989, and started gaming in 1993. Due to my brother, I'd already had a Sega Genesis and the NES. My first game was Sonic The Hedgehog Two
. A delightful little game that was he peak of an otherwise dreary series. My Sega experience was short lived Playing such classics as: Sonic 1, 2 and Knuckles, Mortal Kombat(4 year old playing an M rated game? Bad parenting!), Heavy Nova, and other sub-par games that elude me.
I was quickly drawn into Nintendo's warm, trustworthy grasp. Traversing a side-scrolling land full of magic turtles and mutated mushrooms would become my home. Upon playing Super Mario Bros 1 & 3 I had bought in to the whole gaming ordeal, and I haven't looked back since. In 1994 I received a Super
NES. in which i continued my Mario love, with such titles as: Super Mario World and Mario Paint. This was the turning point in my life. The point when I became a true man. A manly man, because we all know only true men play Vidja Gamez! My Nintendo collection included classics like: Kida Icarus, SMB 1, 2 and 3, Donkey Kong, DK Jr. Math,Clu Clu Land, Wario's Woods, The Legend of Zelda, Zelda 2: The Bad One, Excitebike, Punch-out, Tetris, Base-ball, (SNES) Super Mario World, Mario Paint, Chrono Trigger, DKC1 and 2, LoZ: ALttP, Master Blaster blahblah, Mario RPG, Super Punch-out, Super Mario Kart.
I am now the proud owner of every Nintendo console, and almost every Nintendo handheld. The list exceeds 150 games, and would take way too long to type out.
In 1998, one year after obtaining my N64, I was Introduced to the PSOne. My Nintendo fanboyism still raged on, but I was open to this new console and enjoyed it very much. Playing through such classics as: FF:VII, FF: IX, RE: 2, Tomba, MGS and Crash Team Racing. My new found love for these "grown-up" games, I've also had a Sony console the passed three generations, to play second fiddle to Nintendo.
Favourite Video Game:
Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. My favourite series in gaming is Zelda, and three Zelda games round out my top three of all time. The reason for my love of Majora's Mask, could very well be that I've worn specs since 1999, so the Majora's mask nostalgia fog has yet to leave them, but that's for you to decide. Majora's Mask took Ocarina of Time, included an atmosphere, story and sidequests. Not to mention the great soundtrack and cast of this grande adventure. Majora's Mask will forever hold a soft spot in my crusty, cynical heart.
Favourite Current Generation Game:
This game has been tough for me to decide. I would say it's the Resident Evil 4 Wii adaptation, but does that really qualify as current-gen?
To avoid any controversy, I'll choose the next best thing, Super Mario Galaxy 2. Perhaps not as revolutionary as it's predecessor, or Super Mario 64 for that matter. However, it is the closest thing, in my opinion, to gaming perfection. From a control standpoint, of course. The stunning visuals and terrific soundtrack only add to this sleek, innovative and incredibly fun title.
My favourite PS3 game is Borderlands, but I'll get into that another time.
Favourite Movie: Fight Club
Favourite Band: Pink Floyd
Favourite Song: Nobody Home - Pink Floyd
That's me, as a gamer.
Glad you enjoyed! read
