About
First things first: I a kid living in the suburbs with my family of 7 significant others who is nearing the middle of his 12th grade year. I have 5 brothers, whose interests in gaming range from a passing interest to a love almost as great as mine. I am interested in computing and, perhaps its polar opposite, writing. In fact, my lackadaisical advanced English class has inspired me to satisfy my literary craving by blogging, however erratically. I take academics very seriously, which is somewhat odd as this conflicts with my lazy nature. Music is another love of mine, as I find great joy in listening, performing, and composing music. I am also heavily involved in the music program at my school, ranking first in the trumpet section. I also play piano, but I wouldn't call myself a "piano player" if you know what I mean. I have also been playing soccer since I was 6, but I quit in 11th grade to its horribly competitive atmosphere. I think I should say that I am somewhat compulsive, and I used to struggle with an eating disorder. If anyone was wondering/remembers/cares, I wrote that article about it under a different name becuase I didn't know how others would react.



Now on to the good stuff: I have been gaming since I was 2(regardless of how god I was, I have picture proof). My memories of my NES-playing have grown somewhat foggy, but I can vividly recollect countless memories of being glued to my SNES. Being around 6 or 7, I could beat any game that I had, save for Zelda ALTTP (Dark World simply confounded me): Super Mario World, Megaman X, Super Mario All-Stars, Mario Kart, TMNT IV, The Lion King, Aladdin, F-Zero, Star Fox, and countless others. I guess this makes me sort of unique, as I often see my 10-year old brother struggle with these very games.

I should get this out of the way: I grew up as a nintendo person. To this day, I have every handheld, save for the DSi XL (is it even available yet?). The N64 was just as great for me, and in total my brothers and I had collected 67 games. Even though I was a late-comer to the Gamecube (Blast my persuasive brother and his xbox!) I loved that as well. This is important though, because around this time, I became a video-game person. The advent of the xbox proved to me that First-party nintendo games were not the only good games out there. My ultimate decsion to get a 360 further solidified this, as I have no regrets. Even when given a free wii by a family friend, it gets nowhere near the playing time that my 360 does. It's important to note that I don't waste time playing multiplayer games, either; I only play games with a strong single player. The only side of consoles I don't have experience with is the sony side. Besides a PSP, I have never owned a Sony console, which sometimes, I regret.[break]

I'll try to update as much as I can, but I don;t think that I'll get to the point where I'm fully intergrated into the community. Memes and sayings will go right by me (I had o look up "tldr" this morning!), and I don't like to participate in console wars. But I figured that if I did an intro blog, people would know where I'm coming from, and possibly forgive me if I say/do something stupid.

Hope to see you, the destructoid community, out on the interwebs, disscussing videogaming and our passions that go along with it!
