Alright, so I "joined" destructoid sometime last year. I put say "joined" because I made one post and then never showed up again. That was a dick move, and I'm sorry. Dtoid has been my go to place for JOURNALISM for maybe three years now, and I'm ashamed for not having anything to contribute. But, I think I finally figured out what to post about.
It's time to do a senior project for my high school (Do other high shcools have them? I really have no clue), and I have decided to do it on, what else, video games! Originally, me and a friend were going to make a minature arcade cabinet using an NES as the guts, but we dropped that idea after we saw an article about the exact same thing posted here. So, having abandoned that idea, we parted ways. My next idea, and the one I am currently working on, was to have three separate components to my project. In no particular order they are: The postition of video games in the economy, games as art, and the rising popularity of casual games. The main thrust of the project is to show people, and when I say people, I mean people that don't play games, that video games are more than what they think. I am at one terrified and really excited to do this. I'm gonna try to make regular to semi-regular posts about this, while also trying to make normal c-blog posts. Alright, that's all I have. Bye!
Aright. I created this account a while ago, but I'm just now getting around to my first post. I'm off to a great start! Right, so I guess some stuff about me. Games have been part of my life for as long as I've been alive. I have faint memories of me and my sister playing marble maddness, me playing metroid, me calling the nintendo help center when the NES died, and so on. I could go on and on about what I remember from back then, but that'd be boring. Recently, I haven't played as much or as many games as I should have, but that's what happens when school exists. Earthbound rocks my socks and Knytt Stories rocks my face. Uh.. I'll write more later. I've run out of thoughts.
