I'm a young gaming enthusiast with a passion for writing about all things relating to my favourite pastime. I devour news from the industry and enjoy coming up with new angles on interesting stories. I'm also a keen reviewer, but lack the sharp knife edge necessary to write accurate critiques which highlight a particular game's good points and bad points.
As for my gaming proclivities, I'll admit to being one of those evil creatures who has had more experience with recent releases than the classics of yore. I have installed various emulators on my laptop and experienced the classics of different eras, but my area of expertise is definitely from the 2000s onwards. That doesn't mean I lack respect for these games and their respective generations; I'm just a younger gamer who, unfortunately, missed out on the hype and has been lured by the sins of shiny graphics and that omnipresent god, Microsoft. I enjoy games with slight or even major flaws - it says something that my favourite game of all time is Access Games' Deadly Premonition, a sublime game which received a lowly 2/10 score from IGN.
I joined Destructoid about a month ago from the time of writing (15/03/2011) after stumbling upon a review by Jim Sterling. Since then I've written a few blog posts, none of them hugely popular but none of them hugely unpopular. I stumbled upon Destructoid from a dark corner of the internet, and found it to be a veritable oasis of fine writing, interesting news, and slightly frightening intellect and experience.
So, that's it. Around 70% of my life - mainly virtual - condensed into a short passage. If you've taken the time to read this, I thank you.
