About
I am a 28-year-old gamer who has written articles for Bitmob back in its heyday. I'm a huge fan of Japanese role-playing games. My favorite games include Xenoblade, Final Fantasy 7 and Persona 4.

I used to work as a freelance journalist for some newspapers and websites, but I'm now working on a web programming career. There isn't much money in journalism anymore. My passion for video games isn't dying anytime soon, though. I still love to venture through cyber-punk worlds in my spare time.

Sadly, I haven't finished Final Fantasy 7. I'm working on it right now. Go ahead and make fun of me.

Well, I'm returning to Destructoid. Again.

I confess. I've been writing about video games on Bitmob for about two years or so. I always wanted a bigger presence on Destructoid. However, I've never really focused on it, because I spent all my time on that other website.

I am Jonathan Oyama. An anime fan since about 2003 or so. More importantly, I love Japanese role-playing games. In fact, almost every game in my collection is a role-playing adventure. Each journey never really turns boring, in my opinion.

I'm a huge fan of Xenoblade. I spent over 100 hours of gameplay, traversing the overworld, I built intimate bonds with everyone, including a furry friend named Riki. I finished that sucker. And I still have that final dungeon music stuck in my head.



I remember all my JRPG experiences. However, I just haven't been able to finish Final Fantasy 7. I always kept quitting during the final battle with Sephiroth. His stupid Supernova attack is incredibly irritating. To be honest, Final Fantasy 7 isn't the most frustrating game in the series. I always get too wrapped in the epic scale of the story, though. It has so much for me to take in.

As for my other games, I played tons of Battlefield 3 rounds. Unfortunately, Battlefield 4 looks a bit silly. I won't go too far into detail, but it has to do with that Bonnie Tyler song. Anyone who has seen the gameplay trailers will know what I'm talking about. Urgh. I can't bear to listen to that song again.

(...but I'll post the link just so everyone else can listen to it)



I hope all the Destructoid gamers will enjoy my future posts. I hope everyone can rejoice and play glorious Japanese RPGs forever. After all, everyone needs an ultra-powerful boss to destroy.
