I have been a gamer for as about as long as I can remember. Started on an Intelevision my father picked up for me and my sister at a garage sale. I played countless hours of Baseball(when I was playing with my sister) and Astromash by myself. I moved onto a Nes a little later than everyone else had to get by on a Atari 2600 but had started to collect a respectable amount of retro systems Atari 5600 and 7800, Magnavox Odyssey 2, and countless generic Pongs and countless games for all of them from a really cool swap meet. But Nes definitely holds a special place for me cause I wanted one for so long. As soon as I was able to buy my own stuff by mowing yards etc I have went overboard and really haven't slowed down yet.
I am an owner of all the consoles I like them all though I may occationally hate on particular console makers time to time when I feel they have lost there way or just did something stupid. I particularly do not like the hardcore fan-boys those that the truth means nothing to or are blind to it. People shouldn't dis great games just because of their platform.
I play just about every type of game out there with the exception of sports titles though I have been known to dabble with them from time to time more on the fantasy variety like Hotshots Golf or the Mario "insert sport here"(can't wait for Mario Marco Polo). My favorite Genre has to be rhythm games followed by action adventures and platformers but I also enjoy racing games(Interstate 76 is probably my all time favorite car game which is saying something I'm an indecisive person(Interstate 82 would probably be the biggest let down for a car game))and RPG's, Puzzlers etc.
I am also an anime fan really both have fueled each other. I really like comedy the best though serious titles do have there moments. I have weirded friends out with Sexy Commando Gokkudokun and corrupted people with Ebichu.
I had posted on my cblog a few weeks back about my headache with GameFly. So I felt it fair to post my status a little bit.
I never received the 3rd shipment of games so push come to shove I write them the not nice letter that stated to fix this, refund my downtime, or cancel my service immediatly. Well I get a response back that was vague we have listed you games missing we will send out again like they had not read the whole mail. I was really pissed cause I felt I was going to be stuck in a infinitely loop missing games. Well needless to say the games came to my house in 2 days.
It feels awful coincidental I give my ultimatum and I get the games. I will continue to see if I can be refunded for my month extended outage from gamefly. Really don't know if I will keep the service might use this time to clear my queue out and quit the service as this has been a pain in the ass. The service is awesome when it works an I like how it curves my spending on games a little but there are too many missing games for my liking.
