Whoa boy there is a lot to say about me, so I'll narrow myself down into three words: gay, sarcastic, pretentious. More detail? Fine.

A gay gamer with an IQ of 120 and medical problems galore. Had an abusive mother until his father won custody of him in court when he was 6, has cystic fibrosis, PTSD, clinical depression, diabetes, social anxiety disorder, and (gasp!) flat feet! Better?

I'm a big fan of platformers, third person shooters, and RPGs, though I usually never end up finishing the latter. I suffer from what I like to call "Gaming ADHD", in which I'll stop midway through a game just to play a new one.

I know, I know, what kind of gamer does that, right? I'm trying to get out of it by making sure I only play 3-5 games at a time, and I have intent to finish them before I start.

I certainly have a lot of favorite games. In fact, I don't think I could possibly list them all. I tend to prefer games that let me get emotionally invested in the characters. For a quick top 11(11 is way better than 10...also my absolute favorite game/series total 11. Screw the rules, I have money!): Kingdom Hearts(series, I in particular), Uncharted(series, though Among Thieves in particular) Mirror's Edge, Prince of Persia(2008), Silent Hill(series, though 2 and Shattered Memories in particular), Resident Evil(series, excluding those god awful light gun games), Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Final Fantasy(series, though V, VI, VIII, IX, and X in particular), and Heavy Rain.

Hey tendollarlameo, welcome to our Community Blogs!

Unlike a regular blog, where you're out alone in the web wilderness, destructoid will publish your story instantly to a directory shared by our readers. Great blogs are voted up, and you'll soon earn followers. "Failblogs", the opposite of awesomeness, we can do without. As such, we want to help you make the best first impression:

Checklist for Not Sucking:

1) Upload an avatar CHECK!

2) Write a brief bio


3) Publish your first blog (SCARY!)

It's not so scary. However, be mindful of a few things. A good blog is intended to be a complete article, have entertainment value of some kind, and formatted nicely. If you toss a blog up that looks like a quickly thrown-together email with no photos or care you'll never earn readers, and unlikely ever get your blog promoted to our home page.

Here's an example of a FAILBLOG:
Oh hey I'm new here wuz up I've been reading the site for 99 years and this is my first blog! I like tacos! Nice to meet everyone!!! -Niero
Silly rabbit, blogs are not forums! While enthusiasm is greatly appreciated, that's hardly a valid blog post or even a complete paragraph. Even if your intentions are in the right place, this is what we call a "fail blog". Don't be that guy.

If that's all you want to say, it's better suited for fast-paced conversation in our home page comments or even our forums. Blogs are complete thoughts. They should be able to stand alone. When you're ready to talk about an interesting topic, in 1-2 paragraphs and ask readers to respond to your thoughts then you're ready to blog. Got it?

Don't spam the blogs.

One last thing -- be mindful that this is a 'shared' space, so don't push a bunch of blogs together one after the other. After you publish, try commenting and following other bloggers before you blog again to allow people to check your story out, and post new stories as well.

If you are copying and pasting from another blog, please take some time to personalize it for this community. Nobody likes copy-pasta, it's spammy.

Here's a few more blogging tips from the boss of us. Ready to go?
